DENVER — Life finds a way.
Colorado fans of the "Jurassic World" franchise will be able to experience the majesty of its dinosaurs for the first time in a new family-friendly show.
"Jurassic World: The Exhibition" will open in Denver on March 4, 2022, at the National Western Center, organizers announced Wednesday.
An immersive 20,000-square-foot experience based on one of the biggest blockbusters in cinema history, Jurassic World: The Exhibition has become a global success with more than 3 million visitors since 2016.
Exhibition visitors walk through the world-famous Jurassic World gates, encounter life-sized dinosaurs and explore richly themed environments.
"Guests will have an up-close look at a velociraptor, stand in awe under a towering brachiosaurus, and encounter the most fearsome of them all, the mighty Tyrannosaurus rex," says a release from the exhibition's organizers.
Attendees can also interact with baby dinosaurs, including "Bumpy" from the Netflix animated series "Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous."
Tickets for the Denver run of Jurassic World: The Exhibition are on sale now at JurassicWorldExhibition.com. The show will be in Denver through at least Labor Day.
"What excites us about Jurassic World: The Exhibition is the opportunity to give fans a real-world, immersive experience based on the amazing adventures of the films and delivered to a location near them," said Michael Silver, Universal Parks & Resorts’ president of global business development. "Visitors will come face-to-face with life-sized dinosaurs and walk through richly themed environments, all inspired by the beloved global franchise."
