We did it the night before opening night. They invited a small group of media outlets to come check it out. They didn't allow any photos or video of the experience though.

Honestly, I'm shocked and disappointed that they cancelled it. It wasn't offensive at all.

Now, as for the experience, it was okay. Worth the $10, but it didn't blow us away. I'm more disappointed about them caving in to the (IMO unfounded) complaints than I am about actually losing the attraction. It was a good attempt, and there were elements we liked, but the tech just isn't quite there yet and it would need a higher budget and some outside-the-box thinking to really turn it into a "must see" attraction.

Personally, I'd rather see them bring back Trapped.
