I cannot wait for this! I'm still curious to know exactly what it's going to be like! I'm holding out a little hope on it being similar to Alien War but I'll be just as happy to see some really cool Aliens in person.

So by completely ignoring the Necrom works of H.R Giger, Ridley Scott used them as inspiration to redesign the Alien?

What a f**king cop out.

I like the changes but am true to the original Alien   :)

Is there a Madam Tussauds in NY? Maybe they'll tour it.

So myself, RidgeTop, Xenomorphine and HuDaFuk were able to attend the press unveiling yesterday. It's definitely in the vein of Alien War but not quite the same thing.

You're led through locations from Alien: Covenant (the ship, the lander, the Necropolis) by actors in Covenant garb. You're not chased by anybody in Alien suits because it's more about the actual waxworks (which are awesome btw). The sets were really cool too. Very faithful.

If I had any real complaints, they would just be that it was a little too short and I would have liked the chance to get some snaps with more of the waxworks. I'm going to be asking about that though.

We're planning on attending again too. Really enjoyed it. We'll be recording a podcast on it (an honest to God in-person one too!) and I'll be writing up a page on the event to go on the website too.



Here I am, trapped in the cryotube.  :P

Some more pictures -

Was going to upload some of my snaps but doesn't look like I have anything worthwhile that Hicks doesn't already!

The Walter waxwork looked really good. The maze was decent but disappointingly short - think of it as a little side-show while you're in the... what do you call a waxwork lookalike place? A waxery? ...rather than a stand-alone attraction in its own right. Was also really hoping there'd be some people in Alien suits jumping out at us but sadly it was just animatronics (and fairly tame ones at that). The sets were great though and what Aliens there were looked really nice.

We were told we could have a second go round without the actors and whatnot rushing us through so that we could take some decent photos of the actual horror maze part of it, but then the building's fire alarm went off (triggered by smoke from the maze itself, best get that fixed :laugh:) and we had to evacuate, so we never got the chance.
