Has anyone checked this out yet? Was wondering if it was worth it. Love all the WB cartoons.
I have not. I tried....a couple times months back but they
kept moving the opening back to the point where I took it
off my list. I am interested, just haven't made it over there
yet. It should be neat for both us big kids and little ones too.
Don't know the hours, but it it works out...the steak house in
Circus Circus has always had great marks.
im also interested but the price has to come down ... for 20 bucks ? i would want a souvenir ticket and a t shirt lol...
We may just have to check that out in a couple of weeks. I'll report back with my findings.
Wow, a reason to do Circus again! I'll try to check this out next month. I used to LOVE MM/LT when I was young. Still do, actually.
Is it worth it?
Well, I must start out by revealing that I'm terribly biased in my review of the Chuck Jones Experience. I am Chuck Jones' grandson, Craig.
However, although I must say that I personally think it is well worth the admission price, each person or group that sends me notes, text messages, pictures, or even actual letters (forbid!), has said that they were enthralled by the journey they were taken on inside the Experience. Just yesterday a friend said her accountant was out there with 10 young soccer players (10 or 12 years old), along with parents, and although she thought it was big ticket amount for the group when they arrived, she said they spent a couple of hours and could hardly get the kids and many of the parents to leave when they had to go to their next game.
It is like walking inside of a Chuck Jones cartoon that is super life-sized, as well as walking into his studio (with his actual desk setting right before you), that includes hundreds of books from his own personal library, so you can glimpse a bit inside of his genius.
There is a room where you can see how you measure up next to Life-sized characters and then walk into a filming of a Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote cartoon being filmed by Bugs Bunny and directed by Daffy W. Griffith, all in larger than life-sized three dimensional creations.
There are over 250 original works of art ranging from historical production materials to oil paintings, to traditional fine art, all by Chuck himself.
There is also an interactive area where you can record sound effects at the Rikki Tikki Tavi Foley station and create your own Zoetrope animation strip.
There are great photo opportunities throughout.
If I'm there, I'll take you on a personal tour too!
And, yes, there are plenty of t-shirts to be had as well as other great things to take home if you like.
I'll even make a bold statement that if you don't like it, ask for Neil and I'm sure he'll give you your money back. (Neil???)
Plus, there are $5 coupons all over Las Vegas to make it even more affordable.
I hope you at least go by to take a look if you're in town.
PS Gregrio, you are so right about THE Steak House at Circus Circus. Best steaks I've ever had...
Hey THANKS Craig, I think ya sold me man.
What are the hours?
A bit further down the road (Sept/Nov)...I have a couple
late Shows with lots of time to kill in the early evening.
Taking in Chuck's experience and dinner would just be the ticket!
Hi again Gregrio,
The hours are 10am to 10pm daily.
I suggest you get there with plenty of time to dawdle...
Every time I go through I pick up something new and come out feeling completely energized.
Hope to see you there,
Gawd, it's been sooo long since I've had a good, long 'dawdle', lol...
I'm looking forward to it and yeah...hopefully see ya there!.
Perhaps we could grab a steak and you could show me your version
of the experience!
Fantastic. You've convinced us, Craig.
We'll be there on the 20th.
Really looking forward to this now.
September in Vegas
That sounds like fun!
You have a lot of talent in your lineage, but I'm sure you know that!
Here is a segment that aired about The Experience - it looks like a fantastic ride for fans of the cartoons or anyone interested in the art of drawing or animation:
and here is a link to the $5 off coupon if anyone is interested:
