The Gold Coast Titans today showcased an entertainment extravaganza that will wow fans with aerial motocross displays and dance moves fresh from the United States when they take on the Panthers at Skilled Park on Sunday.

As part of the game day activity, fans of all ages will be wowed by the displays of the performing 'Freestyle Moto X' show 'Showtime FMX' as well as the famous dance crew 'Jabbawockeez', direct from Las Vegas.

The sideshows are all a part of the Family Fun Day including jumping castles, Titans obstacle courses, face painters, fairy floss, performances from our Titanettes, Game Day Titans TV action and of course the main stage - two Rugby League clashes. The Gold Coast Titans wanted to create an environment that was value packed for the whole family by offering a special '$50 Family' ticket and providing an entertainment packed afternoon at the footy.

Titans prop Luke Bailey sees this Sunday as a great initiative to get the crowds back to Skilled Park.

"The crowd know how important they are and every game is tight this year,'' said Bailey.

"We love to fill the stadiums and what better to do on a Sunday then watch the footy, watch us win and you have the entertainment here with the 'Jabbawockeez', Showtime FMX plus on top of all that there are treats for the kids, so it should make for a great day.''

Titans duo Bailey and Bodene Thompson were able to experience a front seat view of the entertainment, perched on top of the landing ramp with the stunt bike sailing over their heads.

While that would be enough to make many a man go weak at the knees, motocross enthusiast Thompson couldn't wipe the smile from his face.

"It was pretty exciting actually, I like motocross and having the 'Jabbawockeez' as well it was exciting,'' said Thompson.

The feeling was mutual for Showtime FMX Director Gary Reid who has taken his team of extreme motocross performers to the V8 Supercars and Nitro Circus to name a few.

"Yeah we are really excited about coming to the game this weekend, we have performed all around the Country, we relocated the team to the Gold Coast about a year and a half ago and really keen to get involved with the Titans so hoping for a great family day,'' said Reid.

"I am a closet Canberra Raiders fan but after moving up to the Gold Coast I have converted to the Titans, they have been great to be involved with in piecing this event together."

"I was lucky enough to see the 'Jabbawockeez' when I was in Las Vegas a while ago so having them dancing on top of the truck today with the boys was unreal so I hope a big crowd will turn up."

Jupiters Hotel & Casino Acting Managing Director, Craig Peachey, said the property was excited to be joining forces with the Jetstar Gold Coast Titans to create a memorable game day experience for the local community.

"We were thrilled to be able to bring world famous dance crew 'Jabbawockeez' direct from Las Vegas to the Gold Coast as the first stage show in the new $20 million redeveloped Jupiters Theatre," Mr Peachey said.

"Jupiters is a long-time supporter of the Jetstar Gold Coast Titans and of late, the property has placed a huge emphasis on being the 'home of live entertainment' in our city, so what better way to bring the two together than to involve the 'Jabbawockeez' in a home game.

"We hope the Jetstar Gold Coast Titans fans enjoy the sneak peek of the dance crew's critically acclaimed stage show, 'Jabbawockeez' presents MUS.I.C, which has been wowing audiences of all ages with its unique mix of theatre and dance.

"Jupiters and the Jabbawockeez are looking forward to teaming up with the Titans on what promises to be a fun, family day at the footy.''

Titans fans will have a chance to get up close and personal with the live entertainment on Sunday and indulge in the entertainment extravaganza that will find the inner child in all of us.

Showtime FMX will kick-off the action with two pre-game shows on Sunday from 12:40 and 1:10pm while the Jabvbawockeez will perform inside the stadium just before kick off.

Tickets are still available for the clash with families benefiting from the $50 Family ticket, for more information head to www.titans.com.au
