The DisGeek Podcast - Your Guide to the Disneyland Resort

Daniel and his wife Laurie visit Universal Studios Hollywood, to attended the annual Halloween Horror Nights.  This is not your usual run-of-the-mill DisGeek Podcast episode.  Instead we present a recording of Daniel and Laurie AT the event.  Here are a few notes about the recording:

  • It is not in binaural so headphones are not really needed but may help. I was just me walking and holding my digital audio recorder. It didn’t have a pop filter of any kind so you will occasionally hear a pop and some wind now and then.
  • I had a few technical difficulties and you hear those issues. For example on Transformers the first part is a bit over-modulated and it wasn’t until halfway thru the ride did I realize it. There was a time or two where I identically turned off the recording so there may be a weird edit or two.
  • Also we walk through the mazes and you get to join us.. The recording of those could be loud, and a bit disturbing. It is halloween horror nights after all. You will hear the occasional swear word. Not from us, but the people around us and some graphic descriptions. I don’t do the best job at describing what I see, but with the audio, you can use your own imagination. So if you are bothered by Horror type stuff, you may want to pass.
  • Finally if you plan to attend Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights consider this a spoiler warning.

Here is a video trailer of the event:

I realize that this may not be your cup of tea.  But I’m a huge fan of these types of events and of theme parks in general so I thought it would be fun to share this with you.  If not, then we will see you next week, with a brand new episode of the DisGeek Podcast.  Enjoy the show.

NEWS

Voices of Liberty performances extended through the holiday season. Last weekend was supposed to be the last.

Storybook Land Canal Boats and Casey Jr. Circus trains closed today for a two month referb. Rumour says that they are going to put in safety fencing around the areas of the attraction where CM’s could possibly plummet to their deaths.

Same treatment for Indiana Jones which also closed today for a few months.

Fanstamic had its Glow with the Show. I didn’t like the idea at first but from the video it looks like it is a nice addition.
