How To Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular {My Thoughts}

We went to the How To Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular on Friday night and really enjoyed it. {See my first post for details on the show and a great discount code!} The visual effects of the show were amazing and much larger than I thought they would be. I was expecting just a simple stage show but instead was pleasantly surprised that they used every area of the arena that they could possibly use. I loved that the images moved so for part of the show I felt like I was really in the show with the characters. The whole experience is just something I can’t even describe in words so I took a short video of the show  so that you could see how much of a production it really is. What you see lit up in the video is the back screen and that’s pretty much all you can see in the video other than a little movement on the stage.

If the show will be near you {check here} I would recommend that you go see it with your families. Jacob is 4 and he enjoyed it and I think it’s something adults would enjoy too so I’d suggest it for preschool age on up. Try to get seats as close as possible, too. I also liked that the parking was free. I am not sure if it’s free at every show but the arena we went to normally has paid parking so I thought it was a nice perk.

(Disclosure: I received tickets to the show in return for sharing about the show and my opinion of it.)

DREAMWORKS HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON LIVE SPECTACULAR is coming to Chicago! It will be at the United Center this weekend. The first show is on Thursday, July 26 at 7:00 PM. Other showtimes are Friday, July 27 at 7:00 PM; Saturday, July 28 at 11:00 AM, 3:00 PM and 7:00 PM; and Sunday, July 29 at 1:00 PM and 5:00 PM. All shows have free parking at official United Center parking lots for all performances.

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON LIVE SPECTACULAR was created by DreamWorks Animation, producers of the Academy Award®-nominated film, How to Train Your Dragon, which opened as the #1 film in more than 30 countries, and Global Creatures, the masterminds behind the international phenomenon Walking with Dinosaurs, the #1-grossing world tour of 2010. 

The live production rolls fire-breathing action, epic adventure and heartfelt laughter into an original captivating story set in the mythical world of Vikings and wild dragons.  Based on the book by Cressida Cowell, it centers on Hiccup, a Viking teenager who doesn’t fit in with his tribe’s longstanding tradition of heroic dragon slayers.  Hiccup’s world is turned upside down when he encounters a dragon that challenges him and his fellow Vikings to see the world from an entirely different point of view.
