In How To Train Your Dragon Arena Spectacular, audiences across the globe will have the opportunity to experience the world of How to Train Your Dragon in a one-of-a-kind, live theatrical event. Fire-breathing dragons will soar overhead, immersing audiences in a magical and mythical world of Vikings and Dragons.
The cast of characters features 24 Dragons, some with wingspans of up to 14 metres, Viking warriors and villagers as well as world-class circus and acrobatic performers. The arena spectacular will feature unrivalled production values, projections, flying, stunts, circus performers, fire and pyrotechnics.
