From the former Facebook page:

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON LIVE SPECTACULAR, inspired by the phenomenally successful, Academy Award® nominated DreamWorks Animation film, fully immerses audiences into the show in ways that have not been attempted before.

Company Overview

The current How To Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular tour of North America is the second leg of the world tour that will span the globe over the next three years. However, before the tour heads overseas we intend to cover as much of continental North America and Mexico as possible. While tour details are still being put in place, we very much hope to be announcing more cities in 2013 in the coming months. We thank you for your continued interest in the show. The cast and crew are flattered by your amazing reviews and posts, and the organizers are appreciative of your suggestions and requests.


Barely contained within the arena, the production utilizes the full venue, maximizing every dimension of performance space to transport audiences into a mythical world of fire-breathing dragons who soar overhead at great speeds. The state-of-the-art animatronic technology and large-scale cinematic projections interact seamlessly with the live actors to bring the story to life.

The show features 23 dragons, some with wingspans of up to 46 feet, Viking warriors and world-class circus artists and acrobats, to perform against a state-of-the-art, wall-to-floor immersive projection measuring more than 20,000 square feet.

Produced by DreamWorks Animation, RZO Dragon Productions and Global Creatures, the masterminds behind Walking with Dinosaurs, presented by S2BN Entertainment.
