Polaris has announced major plans ahead of Super Bowl LII.
With the big game only 30 days away and excitement building, the Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee and Polaris Industries have announced another feature attraction at Super Bowl LIVE Presented by Verizon, where professional snowmobile athlete Levi LaVallee will perform a backflip over Nicollet Mall at Polaris UpsideDowntown, which will be open February 3, 2018 from 10 A.M. to 10 P.M. The event will include snowmobile stunts, meet-and-greets with famous snowmobile athletes, giveaways and other outdoor fun in the “Bold North”. The snowmobile stunt show will take place at 1:30PM, finishing with a Levi LaVallee signature jump over Nicollet Mall at 11th Street.
“Polaris UpsideDowntown is going to put the bold in Bold North,” said Maureen Bausch in a press release. Bausch is the CEO for the MNSBHC. “Our goal is creating a Super Bowl experience in Minnesota that delivers unforgettable experiences for our guests, and Polaris and Levi LaVallee are going to put on a thrilling show for our visitors.”
“Polaris was founded in Minnesota, and we are proud of those roots and the bold spirit they embody,” said Scott Wine, Polaris Chairman and CEO, in the release. “Our company was born from a passion for adventure and enjoying the great outdoors, and we wanted to create a Super Bowl experience that honors that legacy. The result is Polaris UpsideDowntown, with longstanding Polaris partner and friend Levi LaVallee heading an adrenaline-pumping stunt show that is sure to entertain Minnesotans and Super Bowl visitors alike.”
The stunt show will feature LaVallee, along with three other professional snowmobile athletes, including Justin Hoyer and Fred Rasmussen. LaVallee will conclude the show with a backflip on his snowmobile, launching nearly 100 feet between two ramps. A native Minnesotan, LaVallee holds the world record for snowmobile distance jump and is a seven-time gold medalist at ESPN Winter X Games (with 11 total medals).
