The Bourne Stuntacular, the most technologically-advanced stunt show yet, has officially opened at Universal Orlando‘s Universal Studios Florida.
The Bourne Stuntacular boasts live performers, groundbreaking technology, extreme stunts and captivating practical effects.
Visitors will get the chance to fully immerse themselves in the world of Jason Bourne, blurring the lines between stage and cinema in a new hybrid form of entertainment.
Groundbreaking technology at Bourne Stuntacular
The stunt show is inspired by Universal Pictures’ blockbuster film franchise and features an original storyline with Jason Bourne travelling through Tangier, Washington, DC and Dubai.
Julia Stiles has reprised her role as Nicky Parsons exclusively for the Bourne Stuntacular. Director Frank Marshall has worked closely with Universal Orlando.
Visitors will pass through security scanners as they enter mission HQ, where they’re welcomed and briefed by Parsons, who will ask for help tracking Bourne.
