    I guess I was just being naive, but I was hoping for something better looking than this. This looks absolutely terrible considering the cost. I know I’m an adult and this isn’t aimed at me but the kids aren’t the ones shelling out a ton of money. For the show here where I live, lower bowl seats start at $75. Thats over $300 for a family of 4! I could pay for 16 people to watch Marvel’s latest film at my local IMAX for $300 ($18.25 a ticket). That Iron Man suit is atrocious looking. I’ve seen cosplay outfits at comic conventions that look better. I guess if they had an abridged version of this show at one of the parks I don’t think it would be a big deal but based on this clip and the 15 min clip Attractions Magazine posted, I can’t justify paying to see this.

      I’m with ya. My admission to preview night was free, but I left thinking I wouldn’t have been happy paying more than $25-30 for this show. When I looked up the prices afterward, I was stunned. It’s at least double what it should be.

        The Feld business model is based on its circus and ice shows…relatively cheap tickets (from $10 in some markets) offset by a 100% take of the concessions and the greater majority of the building’s parking revenue. The Feld shows are so important to the venue’s bottom line that they will bend over and take the terms of the contract even though everyone hates them. Part of Kenneth Feld’s genius is his ability to make buildings essentially pay through the nose for the privilege of hosting one of his productions. A great deal of the revenue for the Marvel show will still come from $15 cotton candy and overpriced plastic blinky toys…but ticket sales are going to be limited due to the setup of the rig. If seats in the upper bowl of an arena can be sold at all there will only be a few rows since you can’t see through the rig from those seats and in most buildings that can be over half of the available seating (it’s the same reason the show is using wireless tracking of moving lights rather than follow spots). Limited capacity means the law of supply and demand will take over. I’ve noticed they are not offering discount tickets of any kind on this tour which is a regular practice with their other shows. Personally, while the show is technically impressive, I wouldn’t pay $50 bucks to see it, either. But you can bet there are enough parents out there who will pay that and more ($200 to sit in the front row…$100 to sit in the second) to make their little darlings happy. They’re selling tickets 6 months ahead of the engagement (and well from what I hear) which is unheard of with shows of any kind, much less family shows. I don’t think it will take long for him to recoup his $10 million investment especially since his circuses, ice and monster truck shows rake it 1 to 2 million each at every stop.

  3. I’m not certain the place you are getting your info, but great topic.
    I needs to spend a while finding out much more or figuring
    out more. Thanks for fantastic information I was searching for this info
    for my mission.
