  1. 2nd favorite zone for photos. Gets pretty crowded but that's expected for this location. Spider lady is my favorite costume of the event so far.
  2. Got there for S&S on Friday. Rained out which sucked, left at 9:00pm only having done 1 house. Took a long nap on Saturday and arrived at around 8:00pm and stuck around until 1:30am. Much better night. Notes: Some scarezones seem a little, empty? Might just be precautions for covid. That said, if you haven't bought tickets, do so asap. They're clearly limiting capacity. Saturday was "sold out" by 9am but houses were in the range of 35-70 minutes all night, and attractions were all 5-20 minutes. It was actually really nice and I hope they keep capacity limited. Not only for covid precautions, but because it was nice to have some breathing room and not have to stand in line for 2 hours for most houses without an express pass. A team member told me they were at capacity and were not limiting tickets at all, but I've seen truly sold out nights in the past 19 years and this was definitely not one of them.
  3. I thoroughly enjoyed this house. Some of the scenes made me physically recoil like "oh shit thats nasty". This one will be rough for anybody who has a phobia of teeth/dentistry.
  4. Definitely my favorite zone this year. Hacktion was also my favorite in 2009 so that makes sense. Very open area, good lighting, great cast of characters, probably the best place to grab a few drinks and just hang out and people watch.
  5. Picked up my FFP Ultimate this morning. See you guys there. Haven't been to one of these in a few years to be honest, and I've avoided most info on houses and zones. Looking forward to walking in blind on Friday.
  6. Any news on FFP going on sale? I'm wondering if there's a holdup because they're still weighing options on operations. Not necessarily if the event will run or not, but rather to what capacity.
  7. Just waiting to see if/when FFPs are available. Moved closer to the parks last year and am likely picking up an AP shortly. Regardless of what happens this year is going to be ridiculous for crowds. People are really fiending to get out to events again.
  8. Nice. Going to make a point to check it out tonight for sure
  9. I've put you in for the rest of the nights this year except Fridays, Saturdays, and this coming Thursday (10/5). Let me know if it needs any corrections! I'll be out there a little later tonight, around 9ish. Hanging out with some ex-coworkers for a going-away thing at a bar down the street beforehand. I'll have on an AV input shirt and a Cowboy Bebop hat. Say what's up if you see me If anyone wants to meet up let me know.
  10. I don't see why not. I'm not on Facebook, so if it's done that way somebody would have to enter for me which is fine.
  11. For some reason I read "Fallon" and thought you were talking about the ride, lol.
  12. I don't remember the asian guy, but the guy with the "statue of liberty crown" was Rick Sanchez from Rick and Morty.
  13. It would be cool if they did a limited run of house shirts for each of the original houses. Sometime like 50 of each size, sold at the gift shop nearest the house, limited to 1 per guest. If I really liked a house (like Dead Waters or Scarecrow this year) I'd likely shell out 25-30 for one.
  14. I said this in my full review of the event, but I feel like this year was lacking severely. Not compared to other years, but for being a "farewell tour." I feel like they should've gone way harder. Tons of actors. More stunts. More explosions. Really make it a grand spectacle. But, it felt just like every other year. Which is alright, just, not as big as I was hoping for.
  15. I thought it had to be flash but I figured flickr would pick up the external remote. My SB-600 died a couple years back, and was wondering if I should pick up a new one. Maybe it's time. I'd likely keep it mounted to avoid purchasing additional hardware, but keeping it low power with my lightsphere might be good enough to just to give it a quick dab of light if I stay back far enough (shooting 50mm and 85mm on a crop sensor). Obviously you get the freedom of directional lighting by keeping it remote, but it might be better than nothing. And then there's the whole thing of bothering the actors. Being in low light like that for such a long time and then having my ass walk through with a lightsphere going off every few seconds, I can't imagine they'd like that too much. We'll see I suppose. Maybe I'll flirt with the idea if I can find a good deal on a decent one, but eh.
  16. Incredible shots Pandry. I really need to work on my settings and play in LR more. I haven't picked up the DSLR in almost a year, so I'm certainly a little rusty. I've been shooting most of the time at 1/125, 1600 ISO, f/1.4-f/2.8 but I can't seem to get the lighting right. I really, really hate how much they flood red across the Hollywood zone which makes it very difficult for me to balance it out. I'm surprised at how crisp some of those shots are at 1/80, and how much light you got at f/2.8 with 400 ISO. Will make adjustments this week and report back
  17. Yeah last night was pretty busy in general. I still love this zone. It's fun if you want to get away from the louder stuff for a while and chill out.
  18. I get pretty tanked at least one night a week at this event, but I'm still respectful to all of the actors and coordinators and make it a point to tell the ops personnel to have a good night on my way out of a house or through a scare zone. But, I'm also a grown ass man who was raised by good parents, lol. It sucks that the alcohol limiting also affects those of us who know how to control ourselves, I just need a little bit to help with my social anxiety in busy environments like this. I haven't seen the loaded fries, but the pizza fries are goddamn fantastic I've heard. The doughnuts in Springfield are always great, but I need at least 2 other people to help me finish them. It's like a cake. Agreed on TRT and Scarecrow. Those are the 2 biggest standouts for me this year. This last weekend though, everything seemed much better in general than opening weekend.
  19. Sadly won't be there tonight, going to hang out with a friend for her birthday and enjoy some kbbq. Cloves, I didn't see you in Finnegans man you guys must have dipped lol. Maybe another time.
  20. Really, really impressed with this zone after last night. The girls in the white, on stilts, look amazing and I love the designs. Got what I think is a few good pictures here, and I can't wait to come back for more. I'll post them after I edit them tomorrow.
  21. Walking through CityWalk at the moment and heading back there. If you're still there in 10 you'll see me. Edit: Oh man Finnegans is already packed. I need to start a whatsapp room for people to chat or something lol
