Super hero action, thrills and drama will soar, smash and burst into the Maverik Center on September 28 – October 1st with Marvel Universe LIVE! Age of Heroes. The iconic Marvel Super Heroes Spider-Man and The Avengers are joined by the Guardians of the Galaxy, including Star-Lord, Gamora, Groot, Rocket and Drax, in a legendary battle to defend the universe from evil.
We had the opportunity to see the show last night and my kids loved it! We saw one show last year and all agreed that we enjoyed this performance more than last year. The Guardians of the Galaxy characters added quite a bit of humor to the show. Not that I want to give away the show but my favorite part was at the end where the Avengers called for “Avengers Assemble!” Then we heard from the Guardians of the Galaxy, “Guardians Gather!” We all just sat there and the characters admitted themselves that they needed to work on that part.
Without giving it all away, the things that made this story and show so great for kids was because it included the following: fire, fireworks, motorcycles, stunts, and their favorite superheroes and Guardians of the Galaxy characters. The story was fine. The imagery was great. And the kids really did love watching everyone at battle and the good guys winning in the end. It was so up close and personal that at times it felt like we were in the story ourselves.
If you’re going to go see the show, which you should and there are still tickets available, here’s a few things to keep in mind:
- When you arrive, there will be parking fees. The Maverik Center and across the street parking was $10. We parked at the TRAX station parking just north east of the Maverik Center for free and walked over. Another great option is to take TRAX and it’s a short walk to the show.
- No food or drink allowed. This is pretty standard but I took a small purse with an unopened water bottle and had to dump it before walking in. But I still took in the empty water bottle and filled it up once inside.
- Toys and food are plentiful. Set expectations with your children before going. How much money will you spend there? What will you buy them? For my children, they know that we will not be purchasing any of the items (because we’re cheap like that) so they aren’t too sad when we don’t buy them anything. Another alternative would be to buy some of the toys beforehand and take them in with you so the kids still have light up toys.
