After the first 500 Groupons bought, seating will be in sections 208–210 and 226–228.
Bull riding distinguishes itself from shark surfing and surgical-laser tag as one of the most dangerous sports in existence. Professional riders employ little more than chaps, a flank strap, and incredibly svelte thigh muscles in their attempt to stay fixed for at least eight seconds on nearly one ton of mammalian muscle and ruminant rage. The Professional Bull Riders World Cup takes some of the world’s most eminent athletes and shoves them together in one arena to buck and be bucked by the best bulls in the business. The United States bull-riding team will face off against teams from Brazil, Mexico, Canada, and Australia in an all-out international bulldown. Watch the action unfold in person and tremble with more nail-devouring tension than a spider caught in a butterfly net.
The World Cup of bull riding is an excellent outing for families with children, as the future adults will always remember their first glimpse of a live-action bull. It’s also a great early Mother’s or Father’s Day gift for the parent who enjoys high-flying entertainment. If you’ve never been to a bull-riding event, take your office mates out for a day or night that will be all the talk around the water boiler for weeks to come.

- My girls and I had a great time! We have never been to an event like this so we weren't too sure what all was going to take place. We had fun watching these brave guys ride those dangerous bulls. – MissyH74
- My friends and I had so much fun. We went for the entire weekend and couldn't describe it as anything other than amazing. One of my friends had never seen or been to PBR before. She thought it was the greatest thing ever. None of us can wait until next year. – emackey
- Nothing beats attending a PBR event in person. – LLMCA
