OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — This Friday, the CHI Health Center will undergo a huge transformation as it’s prepared to host the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) Unleash the Beast Series bull-riding event.

The arena will open to fans May 1-2 for the PBR’s Union Home Mortgage Invitational and will feature the “top 30 bull riders in the world” as they square off atop “some of the rankest bulls on the planet, often 10 times their size.”

In addition to filling the CHI Health Center with 750 tons of dirt, PBR’s team will also “assemble a maze of steel paneling totaling to the length of six football fields, creating both the arena and necessary pens for the bovine athletes.”
