I was there. It was cool and very nice of Universal. But the rides were not open and that was kind of a downer,

Lucky lucky people, our midnight showing had 1,000 people over 2 screens and i live in a tiny town in the UK i thought that was alot! Amazing experience that i’ll never forget and i might have to say it was my favourite film (will need to see it at least 3 more times to make proper judgement) hehe
