How to Train Your Dragon... Show

Universal Orlando: A traveling show based on How To Train Your Dragon should be at Universal

I saw an ad for a "How to Train Your Dragon" traveling arena show. It looked like an amazing show. I was really impressed by the look and tech of the dragons. Has anyone seen this? Why isn't a scaled down version of this already at a Uni park?

I've seen the trailer also. Looks excellent. By the way, I recently viewed a video of the animatronic raptor that they have at Universal Singapore. It was tremendous. The outdoor clip lasted about 4 minutes and the raptor appeared to be alive. Lots of movements that weren't duplicated. That is definately something that should be imported to Islands of Adventure.

Looks like a good show, and it could work at Universal. For the record I haven't seen HTTYD.

I seen it last month when it came to Pittsburgh. It's definitely an awesome show and think it would be an awesome theme park attraction. The only thing it was a two hour show. I don't know if you could condense it down to a shorter time frame.

There's already a HTTYD ice show onboard either Oasis of the Seas or Allure of the Seas (I forgot which one). It also sounds like a good choice for a theme park show.

Dominick, In my opinion this is Dreamworks' best animated feature. It doesn't rely on pop-culture gags and dancing animals. I think it would have been a much more successful film if it had a better name.

I wish the show was coming near me.
