Comments Off on 5 Reason’s that Blue Man Group-Universal Orlando Rocks

Who would have ever thought that three guys painted blue, never saying one word, using various bizarre instruments to make incredible sounds, would be hyped as one of the best shows around? Here are 5 Reason’s that Blue Man Group-Universal Orlando Rocks!

I had seen the show several years ago and, was astounded by the imagination and creativity that these three, outrageous entertainers were able to bring! So when it was announced that they updated the show in 2012, with a new and exciting performance, I couldn’t wait to see it again! Needless to say I was not let down.

(1). The Blue Man Group show is a one-of-a-kind, amazing performance, that blends art, comedy, rock and roll and technology; and if all that wasn’t enough, the audience was included as part of the show. In fact the funniest segment involved the blue guys ineptly trying to woo a woman picked from the audience at a messy dinner.

(2). Wide screen cameras were used to constantly roam the crowd while the three Blue Men searched for their chosen participants! When they stopped at our row and looked intensely at my guest and myself, we both ignored them; but that made it extremely funny because we were almost chosen!

(3). The use of the enormous ‘GiPads’ (think about giant iPads), was a fantastic, and funny look at how the world communicates now! Stunningly visual, hysterically funny, wildly inventive and interactive, the Blue Man Group will keep the whole family entertained.

(4). Kids will love the color and music, and adults will enjoy the humor and social commentary. Plus, the pulsating new finale features an original Blue Man Group music score that will have you jumping to your feet.

(5). The low-tech visuals are still effective, too: You can’t beat the sight of the guys, furiously drumming, creating an explosion of colored paint raining back down on them. And for those who might find it all too lowbrow, the blue guys do play an interlude of Beethoven’s “Fur Elise.” Of course it’s played on some crazy tube-laden contraption. And it quickly gives way to Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance.”

Blue Man Group – which is located between both Universal CityWalk and Universal Studios – adds an entirely new dimension in live entertainment for Universal Orlando theme park guests and Florida residents.

If you choose at the last minute to see the show, the price you will pay at the venue is close to $100 per adult. This is why you should purchase your tickets in advance. Orlando Ticket Connection has Blue Man Group Tickets at incredible low prices! Reservations are required! Click here for details https://orlandoticketconnection.com/blue-man-group/

Comments Off on SeaWorld Orlando’s Antarctica: Empire of the Penguins

 

SeaWorld Orlando’s Antarctica: Empire of the Penguins Who would have imagined that you could visit Antarctica, in perhaps one of the warmest places in the world? Well, prepare yourself because SeaWorld Orlando, brought the ice to Florida!! SeaWorld Orlando’s Antarctica: Empire of the Penguins is an amazing adventure for every member of the family.

The ride offers options: Wild or mild? Going wild is probably OK for most people. Don’t expect high speeds or to travel upside down, even though you’re theoretically at the bottom of the world. And if you’ve had motion-simulator sickness in the past, keep in mind that you won’t be in tight quarters on this SeaWorld Orlando’s Antarctica: Empire of the Penguins ride. There’s room to breathe. We’ve ridden both options and think the mild version is extremely tame.

After the ride is over guests are directed to where the actual penguins are. They are just 10ft away and are playing and swimming behind glass. These wonderful creatures are just out of arms reach and will splash you so watch out and keep those electronics covered.

Summertime will never feel the same again, when you enjoy SeaWorld Orlando’s Antarctica: Empire of the Penguins. This adventure of a lifetime will allow you a wonderful, rarely seen glimpse into one of the most beautiful, inspiring, continents in the world. Antarctica is an experience that most of us will never get a chance to entertain; it is a location that is so immense and unfamiliar, that for SeaWorld Orlando to meticulously recreate it is an amazing feat!!

For visitors to become acclimated with the differences in temperature, they have designed a sophisticated system that pulls the moisture from the air and cools the space. That way when they are finally introduced to the extreme, icy, conditions there will be very little discernment! Beside you will be having so much fun you will probably not even notice!

You will enjoy Antarctica’s Empire of the Penguins by looking through the eyes of Puck the Penguin, as you are taken on an invigorating, one of a kind ride through the largest colony of Penguins outside of Antarctica! Just watching these amazing animals will put a smile on your face and give you memories that you will not soon forget.

Even though penguins look a little awkward on land, when they enter the water, it’s a whole other story! It is here they look like little black and white torpedoes shooting to and fro.

You can also listen them conversing with each other, and it has been said that each species has a different voice! Some squeak, some chatter, you might hear honks and squeals, but whatever it is, the noise is fascinating. They are very curious animals and you might even find them coming right up to you to see what you are all about!

People usually have to travel to faraway places to see such exotic animals in their own surroundings, but SeaWorld Orlando has it, so buy your tickets here!
