ELLENTON, Fla. (AP) -- There are a lot of secrets under wraps at Feld Entertainment in Ellenton.

The company is creating Marvel Universe Live, with Spider-man, Hulk and Iron Man. There's also the rehearsals for Disney's ice show based on the mega hit movie Frozen, which starts a national tour this fall.

The massive facility holds two dozen monster trucks, plus circus trains and 10,000 glittery costumes from Barnum & Bailey Circus. The facility, which opened in 2013, includes 100,000 square feet of office space with an additional 450,000 square feet of manufacturing space.

The Tampa Bay Times reports the company received nearly $4 million in state and local incentives and grants to keep 148 jobs in Manatee County. Roughly 30 million people attend one of Feld's 5,000 live entertainment shows every year.
