survivorlogo-032409CBS Consumer Products has sealed a deal to bring the stage show Survivor: Live to three theme parks this summer.

“Audience involvement is key to the success of ‘Survivor,’ and we’ve been looking to make that tangible and real,” said Liz Kalodner, exec VP and general manager of CBS Consumer Products. “It took us a little time to create something that replicated the essence of the show.”

According to Variety, the half-hour program will use clips from the TV series — as well as actors portraying previous contestants — and divide the audience into four “tribes.” Volunteers from the crowd will go through a series of four challenges, leading eventually to a sole winner.

The show will debut May 2 at Denver’s Elitch Gardens and Oklahoma City’s Frontier City.  On May 23rd a third show, at the Darien Lake Theme Park Resort in Darien Center, N.Y., will open.
