Even though I would love to see some shots via a tripod, I highly recommend not bringing one in especially on a Saturday night. You really won't even be able to use it that much minus the lagoon due to the extreme crowds. If you want any lagoon shots I recommend using the pillars around the lagoon to rest on. Other than that your gonna have to go camera to crowd combat with some free hand and creative techniques to get those shots.^ I agree, and knowing you shot them without using a tripod makes it that much more impressive :thumbs:
Looks like I may end up going Sat the 13th or Sat the 20th if things work out and really debating on whether or not I want to bring my tripod in. I can strap it to my bag and carry it around but still up in the air if I even want to do that.
I may be an HHN fanboi, but other than Bill & Ted (see reply in that thread), I'm actually with you. Wait times have been crazy so far, considering we're not even in October yet--event popularity may contribute, but lack of capacity is probably an issue as well. In either case, it's up to Universal to address it, and fast. Other than Gothic, none of the houses has "wowed" me--had any of the other 6 appeared last year, it would have been my least favorite house by far. And the lack of defined scare zones hurts the event. Streets feel bare, and the Halloween theme feels less inclusive despite the new "no safe zones" meme.It is great the Pictures are better then the event this Year....Sorry Fan Boys this is just a bad year...Easy Review goes like this. Insane wait times, Roaming groups eh eh eh. The scare is No where HUGE EMPTY AREAS.....LOTS OF WALKING to get to a line. Most Houses are forgettable the later into the night the longer the express lines gets. Bill and Ted better then last year but piles of missed opportunities. I see that the writers liked Madmen better then Ted. I am sure you fanboys will say I am a hater but I spent 180 dollars for One night and a behind the screams tour and early entry so do you think it was worth 180 dollars for a day?
