The Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular! show has been a fan favorite for over 30 years at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
The official Walt Disney World site describes it as follows:
Cheer as Indy and Marion perform incredible stunts with explosive special effects—and learn the secrets behind the magic.
An Action-Packed Show
Watch live as the daring duo dodges deadly traps, battles bad guys, leaps from tall buildings and makes thrilling escapes straight out of Raiders of the Lost Ark. The edge-of-your-seat suspense ends with a dynamite finale!
Along the way, get an inside look at how stunts are done with demonstrations that reveal how to safely throw and take punches, fall from tall buildings, and even wield whips in the midst of complex action sequences.
The action-packed live experience has proven itself hard to match by other Parks, but has this show finally found a worthy competitor?
In 2019, Universal Studios helped create Jurassic World: Live Tour, a live theatrical experience that takes place in the Jurassic World franchise. Though this show might not have the exact same format as Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular!, the practical effects used to bring this storyline and its dinosaurs to life make it an interesting competitor.
This live experience will resume its tour through America on September 2022 and has dates announced until April 2023, giving fans of all ages plenty of chances to see Jurassic World’s dinosaurs up close.
The Jurassic World: Live Tour official site describes the experience as follows:
JURASSIC WORLD COMES TO LIFE IN AN ACTION-PACKED, LIVE ARENA SHOW!

It is interesting to see Universal working on shows and exhibitions of this kind, as it allows its audience and visitors to experience part of what can be seen at the Parks, especially they can’t visit them for whatever reason.
Disney has also worked on producing live entertainment, including Broadway musicals and Disney on Ice, again, allowing their audience to experience a little bit of Disney magic if, for whatever reason, they can’t travel to the Parks.
While you are at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you can enjoy Tower of Terror and Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith on Sunset Boulevard. By the Chinese Theater, Guests prepare to ride Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway. In Toy Story Land, Slinky Dog Dash always boasts a long line with others shooting their shot on Midway Mania or spinning their brains out on Alien Swirling Saucers. Of course, you have to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge for some blue milk, or green milk, and ride Rise of the Resistance and Smuggler’s Run!
