    I was there early on Sunday. I saw the exhibit at 9:15 am and the Falcon was only operational for the rides they were giving away in drawing. They had various times available to put your name in to win a ride. I am not sure if they did that all day or not, because I left around 11:00 once I was finished with the exhibit and store. When I was leaving I did check to see if the Falcon was running and it didn't look like it, no one was in line and I didn't see anyone near it.

    It was so cool. They did run the drawing all day, I went in at 12. I didn't win the drawing, so I'm going back some other day. The Falcon looked really cool from the outside. I wish they had more stuff in the store.

    The store was kinda lame. I definitely figured there would be more to it. O well it prevented me from spending a ton of cash so I am happy. lol

    I didn't stick around long enough to see if I won a trip on the Falcon. My wife put us in for the noon slot which had everyone and their mother in it. So I figured it was safe to say we wouldn't get it and I decided to go home.

    I have to work Thursday night so this would be out for me. I am going again on Nov 18th, which is another member's only night. If I go then I can be at Megafest all day Sat and not have to rush around trying to do too many things at once.

    I'm going back somedays to see the Falcon, Far, Far Away: The worlds of Star Wars(planetarium oct.27-april 30), Special Effects(omni oct.27- april 30), The building of a Dream: A Droid Presentation(nov. 5). On sun. I saw the R2-D2 Presentation, it was cool. You got to see one of the R2 robots. This bot was one that stayed in the 3 wheel form all the time. You got to ask Don Bies, the man who drives R2 the most questions. I was in the exhibit for like 1 hour. I would have been in there longer, but my parents were getting bored, so we left that.

    There are plenty of times to go to this exhibit. I will probably hit it a few more times while it is here and then hit it when it goes to MN and OH. I go to those states a few times a few and by then the exhibit may be a distant memory. lol

    Hey, I want to see it one more time, when it is here. I didn't know you could take pictures, so I didn't bring my camera. There are tons of cool pictures to get there.

    I knew you could take pics and brought my camera, but I waited to see if anyone else would be taking pics before I started to. I only saw a handful of cameras maybe 10 at the most Sunday morning. I almost didn't take any pics because I saw so few cameras and out of the ones I saw hardly anybody were taking pics.

    Is there a lot of people here that haven't been to see this exhibit yet? MEPA is planning a trip up here to see it and I figured it would be a good excuse for a multi-group meet. I know there's talk of the Christmas get together for December but I just figured that I'd throw it out there. I know I am dying to see the exhibit and might take the time to go and do it soon.

    I plan on going a few more times before it is gone in April. I would be willing to meet up with the group(s) to share the experience. I know I am going again on Friday 18th with my brother for a member's only night.

    I haven't been yet and I think that the MoS offers discount tickets for large groups... might be worth checking out!

    How big would the group have to be, though? All things considered, the Boston FanForce is a small group for a big city.

    I went...it was awesome!

    You can even built a miniature model of a hovercar. It's really cool. Highly recommended.
