Cityneon to Expand Jurassic World: The Exhibition Globally

September 2, 2017 Theme Parks No Comments Email Email

Cityneon Holdings Limited acquires JP Exhibition, LLC to grow and amplify Jurassic World: The Exhibition tour globally as produced by Imagine Exhibitions.

“We are thrilled to be working on the Jurassic World franchise, and we can’t wait to bring this immersive attraction to even more markets around Asia and the rest of the world,” said Mr Ron Tan, Executive Chairman and Group CEO of Cityneon Holdings Limited. “To enable Jurassic World: The Exhibition to reach even more people, we will begin to construct a second immersive and similarly unforgettable experience almost immediately.”

Since its launch in 2016, Jurassic World: The Exhibition has seen tremendous success in Melbourne, Australia and Philadelphia, Penn. – where the exhibition saw over 800,000 visitors through its doors in less than 10 months. The Exhibition is expected to welcome its one millionth visitor (in totality) in Chicago, Ill. where it is currently being presented through early 2018 at the Field Museum.

“With the continued global strength of the Jurassic World brand, we’re devoted to bringing The Exhibition to fans worldwide and seeing their excitement to be immersed in the world of Jurassic dinosaurs,” said Carol Nygren, Vice President of Live Entertainment at Universal Brand Development. “Imagine Exhibitions has been a great creative partner and we’re looking forward to continued collaboration on The Exhibition.”

Tom Zaller, President of Imagine Exhibitions and Manager of JP Exhibitions said: “I am very proud of what we have created with Jurassic World: The Exhibition as well as the amazing success to date. This new relationship with Cityneon offers a great promise for all parties involved; Cityneon understands the industry and has the ability to expand on the incredible success of The Exhibition.”

Featuring the closest simulation of dinosaurs ever created, The Exhibition was developed in close collaboration with renowned paleontologist Jack Horner, who served as Paleontological Advisor on Jurassic World. The Exhibition is infused with interactive educational elements—inspired by the real-world science of dinosaur DNA that allowed Jurassic World to come to life. Visitors will travel to Isla Nublar as VIP guests to explore a towering Brachiosaurus, come face-to-face with a Velociraptor, and get a rare up-close look at the most vicious dinosaur of them all, Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Since 2015, Jurassic World has awed audiences worldwide with its towering vision of prehistoric titans recreated by modern genetic science, becoming the fourth highest-grossing film in cinema history with over US$1.6 billion in global box office. The sequel – Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom – is slated for theatrical release in June 2018.
