  1. Yay! My wife's friend code (Stacey) - who will be playing the most is 5632-9933-9011 Mine (Reed) is - 6154-7626-4025
  2. Tonight we got to see the third show of the 2019/2020 Broadway In Orlando series - "The Play That Goes Wrong" at the beautiful Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts in Orlando. This show won a Tony Award for "Best Scenic Design In A Play" in 2017... and the set in many ways is the star of the show! From the official website: "What would happen if Sherlock Holmes and Monty Python had an illegitimate Broadway baby? You’d get The Play That Goes Wrong, Broadway and London’s award-winning smash comedy! Called “a gut-busting hit” (The New York Times) and “the funniest play Broadway has eve
  3. If you have express passes you will 100% be OK showing up a little later. Also, once it gets past midnight the waits start to drop pretty dramatically so it's a really good time to go through some houses a second time!
  4. Time to check out the rest of the houses! The US house was incredibly solid and true to the movie. I can't wait to do this again and again! Yeti: Terror of the Yukon was an awesome surprise! It had some amazing scares and atmosphere. Sometimes when the main creatures are so big, the scares are limited... but not in this house! They will get you in some really creative ways! I really can't say enough about the Ghostbusters house. Perfect blend of atmosphere, lighting, sound, sets, story, audio, etc. They do some special effects in this house that I have never seen before.
  5. Halloween Horror Nights 29 - Opening Night Media Event! Theme Park Review was at the opening night media event of Halloween Horror Nights 29 on Friday and with 10 houses, 5 scare zones and two shows, this is a year you don't want to miss! Universal Studios Florida continues their recent trend of not having an "icon" but using an overall theme that weaves throughout the event. They did a deeper dive into the 80s theme this year and it really works and continues to be a crowd pleaser. It isn't just seen in the houses and the scare zones, it is also seen in the merchandise, food, music, etc
  6. Time to finish up this epic night! The "zombie house" this year was Dead Exposure. A prequel to a zombie house of the same name from years ago. Hey Mr. Zombie... don't eat my brains! The "comedy house" this year was Slaughter Cinema. An homage to B movies that were never made. I love the fake movie posters they made up for the transitions between each scene! Demon Baby stole my heart... AND OUR SOUL! Seeds of Extinction is in a brand new building WAY in the back of the tent house area. This is all about killer plants that take over the earth and it is incredibly deta
  7. Time to hit more houses! OMG! Stranger Things was AMAZING. So detailed and true to the series. There are SO many demogorgons in the maze, you can't escape them! Spoilers! You know what Eleven is doing here! Poltergeist was next and while the first 1/2 is true to the movie, the second 1/2 was done almost like the 1/2 half of the Shining house, a creative interpretation with (in this case.. ) TONS OF CLOWNS! The Revenge of Chucky scare zone has Chucky bringing all of your favorite children's toys to life! Oh no! What happened to the Cabbage Patch Dolls! Care Bear SCA
  8. Time to hit some houses! Pictures below... We started off the 10 houses with Scary Tales! This is the telling of fairy tales in a very twisted way. The facade of this soundstage house is insane and the Wicked Witch flies over you. So many gruesome fairy tales gone wrong in this one! I'M A HUNGRY WOLF! GET IN MY BELLY! I was very excited to see the return of HHN bear! We moved on to Carnival Graveyard, where carnivals go to rust to pieces. Great original house and it has a hidden Jack the Clown! I *do not* want to run away with this carnival! The detail in these
  9. Halloween Horror Nights 28 - Opening Night Media Event! TPR was at the opening night media event of Halloween Horror Nights 28 and with a record breaking 10 houses and 5 scare zones, this is the year to be here! The theme this year is really more of an "aesthetic" (as the kids today would say) of the 80s and it stretches through many of the houses, the scare zones and even into the shops and food stands! While I still miss having an "icon" as they have in years past, this is a fun and different way to approach the event. I have been attending HHN since the very first one, 28 years ago
  10. Day #2 We are back for night #2 and our first stop is the backstage event space where we will learn more about the creation of the ride! The Universal Studios Creative executives told us all about the design process and the changes from the Hollywood version. Then we headed over to the San Francisco area of the studios for a BBQ and the grand opening celebration! What is in every F&F movie? CORONA! "Tuna on White Bread, No Crust" is what Paul Walker's character ordered in the first movie... iconic! These pies on a stick were so much fun! HUGE crowd for the open
  11. For the past two days TPR was part of the media event for the newest attraction at Universal Orlando - Fast & Furious Supercharged! In addition to this new ride, we also got to experience Voodoo Doughnuts and see a preview of Aventura Hotel which is opening this August. We've got a TON of pictures to show you, and hopefully you were following along as we live tweeted all the fun, but here is what the attraction is all about... Universal Orlando guests can step into the blockbuster franchise and straight into the heart of the Fast & Furious films right alongside the Fast & Furio
  12. I got married on the Disney Wonder so DCL has a special place in my heart! Love seeing all the enhancements on the Disney Magic and I can’t wait to see all the Marvel Day at Sea photos!
  13. It seemed to be well staffed and moving at a decent pace for a VR coaster!
  14. TPR had the chance to head to Legoland on Friday morning for the grand opening of The Great Lego Race VR Coaster, and we had a great time! The Great Lego Race VR Coaster is a VR overlay and re-theming to the "Project X" Mack Rides Wild Mouse located in the Technic section of the park. Overall we thought it was a great use of VR on a family friendly ride. The media they created for this attraction feels like a mini Lego Movie, it is fun, humorous and exciting - the perfect balance that you expect from the Lego brand. If this is the future of VR coasters then sign me up, it is a great way to
  15. Tonight we got to see the the amazing Cirque Du Soleil show "VOLTA" in the Grand Chapiteau (the Big Top) in Tampa! This was my first Cirque "tent" show and I can't wait to experience more! There is something special, and dare I say it, magical, about seeing a Cirque show in a big tent. It feels almost otherworldly to look up during the show and realize how intimate the entire experience is. Plus Cirque has the whole experience down to a science with easy access, very clean (outdoor) restrooms, a huge snack and merch area and great overall service. From the official website: "VOLTA tell
