    We went straight here on both Friday and Saturday as soon as we could (3rd chute both days when doors opened) and both days they ran out of passes really quickly.

    Did anyone try it? Was it any good?

    We were lucky enough to get a ticket for it on Saturday (we were in the first 1/3 of chute 1 and we got a return time of 1pm so they went fast).

    It was really good fun, I wish we'd been able to do it again but we decided it wasn't fair to even try as places were so limited and we'd had our turn.

    It's essentially a tech demo but a really, REALLY good one. It's so immersive and batting blaster bolts back at Stormtroopers was definitely some of the most fun I had all weekend (even if I really did need to work on my deflection skills!)

    I definitely need to go for a 3-day pass next time. Originally only booked for Friday then thankfully realized in advance that wouldn't nearly be enough time there and picked up a Saturday pass too.

    The VR was what I decided to make a dash for when it opened up at 10am on Friday and got lucky with one of the last time slots they had available. Was definitely worth it!

    This was so cool.. I got a fast pass for Saturday morning and enjoyed the whole thing. Definitely one of the best parts of CE.

    Yeah, we got a ticket for the Friday afternoon. Apparently they sold out within 30 minutes of opening.

    Trials on Tatooine was great. The game itself is fairly straight-forward but the technology is convincingly immersive. It really feels like you're holding a lightsaber and fiddling around with the Falcon. Very close to ordering one!

    It was the only thing I was hanging out for (more than the panels, which I assumed would be televised) - missed out on the first day as media got first go and the ticket I got coincided with Hamill's panel which I'd been sleeping out since 4 am, for .. did it on the Saturday and wow... it was something else. Though the story was short, it ws so realistic that I kept bumping into walls as I wanted to explore around the Falcon and artoo .. and the shuttles. The interaction with the environment was pretty cool too and of course, that moment when you ignite that lightsabre in your hands and swing it around ... amazing. It is still at it's infancy stage, but if is the direction that games will go, well .. we're about to enter the matrix I guess.
