Universal Orlando will officially open new ‘Bourne’ stunt show this week

The first new attraction to open since Florida theme parks reopened is a live show based on the Jason Bourne film series.

The first new attraction to officially open at a Florida theme park amid the coronavirus pandemic will be a live stunt show at Universal Studios with special effects based on the Jason Bourne film series.

“The Bourne Stuntacular” is a live stage show that has been running sporadically since the park reopened June 5. It has been open at unannounced times for a soft opening referred to as technical rehearsals. Now the theme park has announced that the attraction will officially debut at Universal Studios on Tuesday.

Based on characters and scenes from the Jason Bourne movie franchise launched by Matt Damon, it features stunts and special effects backed by a giant screen to put the story in context.

If you tune into Universal’s YouTube channel at 7 p.m. Monday, you can see a preview that will include stars from the films and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of “Stuntacular.”

The new attraction is produced in the building that was home to the “Terminator 2: 3-D” show.

Universal has added extra spacing between parties and exit procedures to prevent congestion for this show. The theater’s capacity will be reduced, and that may make wait times longer than usual, Universal said in a news release.
