If you haven’t heard of this unique show before, you might be thinking “what is Blue Man Group?”. Universal have described the show as a music, comedy, theatre and dance party all rolled into one, but to truly understand what that means, you’ll have to see it for yourself.
To help you understand more about this wacky show, we’ve put together a list of 6 things you might not know about Blue Man Group, plus one thing you definitely will know!
What you already know:
The stars of the show are blue men!
Even if you haven’t heard of this show before, the name gives you a pretty big clue of what to expect. The stars of this epic show are three bald men covered head to toe in bright blue paint! These three men are the only performers in the show. What you might be surprised to know is that it only takes them an hour to get into costume and get ready for the show. They each wear a specially coloured grease paint on their heads which never dries, and this is to maintain the “wet” look throughout the show.
What you might not know:
1. The theatre was built especially for Blue Man Group
The Blue Man Group show takes place in a custom-built, state-of-the-art theatre located in Universal CityWalk, in between the Hard Rock Café and the main entrance to Universal Studios Florida. As this theatre was built especially for the show, the lighting, video and sound systems ensure a perfect performance. There are 1000 seats in total, but you might want to choose where you sit carefully because you never know what might happen. Which brings us to our next point…
2. There’s a “poncho zone”
Like the name suggests, you should only sit in this area of the theatre if you’re prepared to pack a poncho! If you choose to sit in the first four rows closest to the stage, you can expect to get splattered with lots of strange substances. This area is lots of fun, so if you’re up for getting a bit messy, we’d definitely recommend sitting here as it’s the most interactive area in the theatre. Don’t worry, the ponchos are provided so you won’t have to bring one with you, and all of the substances used in the show will wash out of your clothes.
3. You can save up to 45% off your tickets
If you want to experience this fantastic performance for yourself, we’d highly recommend booking your tickets in advance. Not only does this secure your place at the show, it also gives you the chance to save some money and who wouldn’t want that? When you book your Blue Man Group tickets with Attraction Tickets Direct, you can save up to 45% off the adult box office price!
4. There’s a secret entrance
You might not know that there’s a secret entrance to Universal Studios Florida, hidden behind the Blue Man Group theatre. I’ve you’ve already got your Universal Orlando tickets, you can go straight to this entrance to enter the park. You might find that this is less busy than the main entrance and it’s conveniently located right next to Universal’s Hollywood Rip Rid Rockit rollercoaster. So, if you get there early enough you can be one of the first in line!
There’s no booking office here, so you can only use this secret entrance if you’ve pre booked your theme park tickets. After spending the day exploring the park, you can exit from here and will be just a few steps away from the Blue Man Group show.
5. Your ticket comes with a little extra
That’s right, when you book your Blue Man Group tickets, you’ll benefit from free admission to select Universal CityWalk venues. This includes club entry and priority seating at some of CityWalk’s best restaurants. With so many great options to choose from, there’s plenty to keep you entertained. The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen, The Cowfish and Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville are a few of our favourite places to dine at Universal CityWalk, so make sure you check them out while you’re there. Don’t forget to bring your ID if you want to enjoy a few drinks- you’ll need this in Orlando no matter how old you are.
6. You don’t need theme park admission to watch the show
If you’re visiting Orlando and have made it to Universal CityWalk, we’re sure you’re planning to explore the amazing Universal theme parks, but don’t worry if you’re not. You don’t need Universal Orlando tickets to enjoy the Blue Man Group show as this is separately ticketed. The Blue Man Group theatre is located in Universal CityWalk, so you can explore this bustling entertainment district for free before taking your seat and enjoying the show.
Although, if you are a theme park fan, you really can’t miss the chance to visit the Universal theme parks while you’re there- after all, they are some of the best in the world and that’s not just our opinion. TripAdvisor users have voted Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park the best in the world for several years now!
