Not too long ago I had the great pleasure of experiencing the Blue Man Group for the first time. They recently moved into a permanent home at Universal Orlando Resort, and ever since I’ve been yearning to go.
Without giving away too much about the show, the best description is that it’s an assault on the senses. Truly. If you do attend expect to be entertained and stimulated for the duration of the hour-and-a-half show. And on top of that, the show relies very heavily on audience interaction; in fact, a handful of the show’s segments directly involve volunteers. So don’t be surprised if one of the show attendants tap you on the shoulder before it begins, and ask you to take part. (Go ahead…don’t be nervous — it’ll be a thrill!)
Here’s a tease of what you can expect at the Blue Man Group:
While Blue Man Group is certainly not as affordable as an evening at the movies (tickets range from $49.00 to $74.00 USD), the money is well-spent. (Hint: you might want to keep an eye out for Florida resident discounts at various times throughout the year. You can also get discounts when combining with theme park tickets.)

There are several key things you need to note if you go see Blue Man Group:
– You are visiting a theme park. Any parking before 6pm is going to cost you. Currently, parking for 4-axle cars is $11.
– There is a short walk from the parking garage to the show venue. If you don’t mind paying a little more you might want to think about valet parking, which is considerably closer.
– Crowds. Remember, this is a theme park?
– The Blue Man Group venue is a little underwhelming compared to other theme park venues. Perhaps, though, that’s part of the intent — after all, the “men” are supposed to be the stars of the show.
Enjoy! And remember…don’t be afraid to feel “Blue.”
