The Good, The Bad and The Skinny Of The Westworld Experience at SDCC 2017 - What Was Your Take?

The Good, The Bad and The Skinny Of The Westworld Experience at SDCC 2017 - What Was Your Take?Here is my takeaways.

I missed my time slot due to a press room. I vomited in hand running to get there. Pretty sure everyone eating at those outdoor establishments thought I was drunk. Nope, asthma and heat = vomiting due to overexertion. 

I couldn't get a taxi or uber in time like I had planned. So hoofing it was my only way there. This experience was top on my list. I had no clue it was so limited. I have years of visiting the Game Of Thrones experience without drama. The only time that was offered to me, was unfortunately dangerously close to my press room. However, I promised I would attend to press room. So in with tears and vom in hand, 15 minutes late (and my party onsite explaining what occurred) I could not attend. 

Little did I know there were standby tickets. They swore they told us. Yet our reservations were made in less than 2 minutes, name, how many people, here is the time w…

Then you were taken down a hall with all the doors labeled like the show and creepy host head molds on the wall.






Then you went into your interview room. It looked just like the show. Your interviewer host sat really close made a lot of eye contact. Consulted her reader after each question. It was like being in therapy. Then she rattles off as an eerily accurate character assessment and chose the black hat for me. Told me to look in the mirror and see my real self.



Lights blink briefly and you see it's a two way mirror and you are being observed. Then you are led out to the hall. Watch another video that has glitches. Then …

We all heard it. The Westworld Experience is the best experience at SDCC. It started flying around on Twitter after press received access on Wednesday night. Let me lay out what exactly went down.

The Westworld Experience claimed there was to be no line formed before 9 am. Yet it opened for reservations at 9:30 am. It was also a VERY LIMITED event. Word on the block 75-100 people a day. At SDCC what would this equal? Someone being hurt or trampled. Also note, the Hilton was telling people that called if they wanted to reserve an UBER expense room, they could feel free to wait as guests of the hotel. **This was not a Hilton Exclusive Event**

Personal experience, I have lost a shoe in a mob just trying to obtain a swag bag! Mind you we all pretty much look like we are Sherpas out for a month long expedition by the size of our poster rolls and back packs. HBO wanted a swarm of people that were lurk…
