TPR Live! Live Streams Around Parks

Postby robbalvey » Fri Sep 08, 2017 9:22 pm

We've been doing live streams around parks for YEARS now but recently people have been wanting us to do them more and more and it's not something I've really given a lot of thought to. So here is one we did tonight. We would love to get your feedback...



Is this something that people like? Should we be doing more like this? We aren't really "vloggers" or "podcasters" and to be honest, it's not really something I'm that interested in, but we are happy to walk around the parks and answer questions and stuff.

Any other thoughts on this? Thanks everyone!

my 2 cents is that I absolutely adore them, and watch them every time I stumble across y'all doing one.

It allows me to see places I've never been, or offers me reminders of places I have been.

I hope you keep doing them as I greatly enjoy them, even if the running commentary is about an inside joke, or nothing much to do with the surroundings. You're having fun? I'm having fun too.

I like watching them for parks I've never been to since it helps mr get a feel for the park's atmosphere. Rcdb can tell me if the park has a worthwhile coaster, but a live stream can tell me if I'm walking into a charming park like Waldameer or a lifeless one like Clementon.

I really enjoy watching youtube videos of park tours. Where they walk around the park and talk about its history or ride selection. Gives me a chance to see which parks I want to visit next
1.Maverick 2.Lighting Run 3.Fury 4.Afterburn 5.Raptor 6.GoliathSFGAM 7. Storm Chaster 8.Thunderhawk 9.Raging Bull 10.Shivering Timbers 11.Millennium Force

Live streams are really cool . . . . what about (if possible of course), a live stream POV on a coaster?

Oh, we've done that a few times actually at WDW! The only issue with including a coaster on a live stream is if the line is long and then you're just live streaming boring stuff from the queue. But we have FastPasses or use the single rider line we've actually live streamed Expedition Everest, Test Track, Big Thunder Mountain, etc....

I'm indifferent toward live streams myself but hey, if you have the bandwidth and phone battery they're really engaging for the casual viewer. I know that a lot of people that really only engage with Theme Park Review's big social media channels enjoy them a lot.

I watched the playback on Facebook. At least I skimmed through it. Pretty cool to see lights on Space Mountain. I've liked these live streams lately as it's kind of a video podcast in a way.

^Same here. I went to see It last night, and watched some of the live-stream replay later.
