“THE MARVEL EXPERIENCE” ANNOUNCES GRAND OPENING OF NATIONAL “HYPER- REALITY TOUR” IN DALLAS ON JANUARY 15th

January 12, 2015, New York, NY – Hero Ventures, a Los Angeles-based experiential entertainment company, announced Grand Opening Event for “The Marvel Experience: The World’s First Hyper-Reality Tour;” with a special red carpet event launching the attraction’s visit to the Dallas area. The Marvel Experience will run in Dallas at the Cotton Bowl at Fair Park from January 15th – February 1st, 2015.

The Marvel Experience previewed its first-of-its-kind, hyper-reality attraction in Phoenix to positive local reviews of the show that covers over three acres, encompasses seven colossal Domes and features the world’s only 360-degree, 3-D stereoscopic full-Dome attraction which one enters through a life-size Avengers Quinjet. Along with the aforementioned, there is a state-of-the-art, thrilling motion ride and a “training center” that offers the opportunity for Marvel fans to actually become “part of the experience.”

Produced by Hero Ventures Founders Rick Licht, Doug Schaer and Jason Rosen along with their partners, touring impresario Michael Cohl and PRG founder Jeremiah J. Harris, this first-ever hyper-reality touring attraction will travel to San Diego and San Francisco following Dallas. After these West Coast dates, The Marvel Experience will continue to tour across America and head towards the East Coast with more dates to be announced shortly. Promoted by Cohl’s S2BN Entertainment, The Marvel Experience will remain in each market for approximately three weeks.

“The Marvel Experience creates a new platform for entertainment,” comments Hero Ventures CEO Rick Licht. “We are bringing together so many different interactive and immersive elements under our seven Domes featuring the incredible Marvel characters and we fully expect that our premiere in Dallas will be not only memorable, but unforgettable.”

As agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in training, guests of The Marvel Experience swing with Spider-Man, smash with Hulk, fly with Iron Man and more, all in preparation for an epic battle alongside Marvel’s biggest Super Heroes in a fight against Red Skull, M.O.D.O.K. and an army of evil Adaptoids. The Marvel Experience incorporates next-generation interactive technology including augmented reality and multi-person gaming so you can see yourself in action. Everything happens with bleeding-edge technology and advanced computer animation. There’s nothing else like it. Not only does the audience get to join the adventure, in the end they may even become heroes themselves.

Tickets for The Marvel Experience are available exclusively through Ticketmaster, a division of Live Nation Entertainment (www.ticketmaster.com).
