“Our tremendously talented creative team and a nearly super human cast, have created a show that brings the grandeur of Marvel to life,” said Juliette Feld, producer of Marvel Universe LIVE!  “Age of Heroes creates an experience that immerses families in non-stop action, creating movie-style thrills and jaw-dropping stunts that showcase the powers of your favorite Super Heroes right before your eyes.”

Called on by Doctor Strange, the Guardians of the Galaxy join Marvel Universe LIVE! Age of Heroes on a momentous crusade against the scheming Nebula who teams up with the conniving and loathsome villains Loki and Green Goblin.  The incredible superhuman forces of Iron Man, Thor, Black Panther, Hulk and Black Widow will unite in clashes that pit student against mentor, sister against sister and brother against brother.
Immersive video projection and cutting-edge special effects will captivate and transport audiences across the universe from the fantastical Savage Land to New York City and beyond.  Spider-Man and Wasp’s dynamic aerial stunts along with Captain America’s daring motorcycle skills will be on display in the ultimate race against time to save mankind.

“I’m extremely excited to work on Marvel Universe LIVE! Age of Heroes and bring the talents and powers of these amazing characters with such dimensionality to life,” said Marvel’s chief creative officer, Joe Quesada.  “Audiences will be on the edge of their seat as they witness the outrageous stunts and fight sequences in truly a unique experience that puts fans at the center of the action.”

Whale Watching On Board the Hornblower in San Diego Plus #Giveaway

Hornblower Whale Watching Brought More than Ocean Views!

You never know what to expect out on the open ocean & we are to grateful to Reserve Direct for working with us so that my family could experience more EduFun on our trip.
Hopefully you checked out our first recap on our Low Key EduFun here.. I broke down the fun so that I could put tips and highlights in each newbie experience.

Being super excited to board the Hornblower, we arrived a bit early to check in, get in line and take some photos. I suggest doing this as well - there is just so much beautiful scenery around you in San Diego the photo opps are everywhere!
We boarded pretty quick and got settled. The crew advised us that the water was choppy and the ocean swell was not in our favor....
