Tonight was the Media Reception and kick-off for Wizard World Las Vegas! Held at the Linq High Roller, the reception was for media and press to come out, as well as some lucky winners who won passes to the con and entrance into the reception. We were invited up to the fifth floor with open bar to rub elbows with a few of the guests who will be at the con this weekend including Michael Rooker, Lou Ferrigno, Sean Patrick Flanery, and Jason David Frank. Michael Rooker arrived early, had a blast talking with everyone, and taking fan photos. There were several people in costume like Darth Vader with his crew, and the Ghostbusters. It was a really great time hanging out; once the other guests arrived they all answered questions, and joked around with each other before heading down to the third floor to take a ride on the High Roller.
The High Roller is the world’s tallest observation wheel, and this was my first time ever being on it. It was pretty crazy how high up it actually takes you, my ears even popped. After the ride, we went back to the fifth floor, and Jason David Frank made his rounds talking to every person there. He really took time with everyone chatting, and gave me a small interview, which will be uploaded soon. I am so excited for what the weekend will bring and can’t wait until tomorrow when Wizard World Las Vegas officially starts!
