Does anyone have any ID's they can send me. I'm going with a group of 10 people and we all have Weilan Skywalker - Galactic Explorer. Thought it would be good if we could get a good mix of different characters IDs to go as.

Never needed to use mine in any interactions. If you still want a different one try different sign up details and try a bit later on.

I went last night and I have to agree with all the comments on here, it was simply awesome! 8)
I think even if you only had a passing interest in the films (wives and girlfriends take note), the whole experience is fantastic.
The key to it IMO is just to be open minded enough to take part and then you'll really enjoy it. I'd recommend dressing up, (if not for you, for all the others that want to feel more immersed when you're in their line of vision (I'd say c90% were last night)) but it wasn't essential. There were also a few that refused to talk to the actors etc. and looked miserable... No idea why they were there...
All the spaces and experiences were top drawer work; if you can still get a ticket, don't hesitate! :D

I went last night and really enjoyed it. They did a pretty good job of recreating some of the areas, and the venue is really cool. A few minor issues:

1) It took far too long to get served at the bar, it's stupid to only serve cocktails as each one takes about 5 minutes to make!
2) Although I appreciate people like the acting I wish they hadn't done it during the film, it's really distracting. I wanted to enjoy the film, not watch a low-budget re-enactment.
3) As somebody else said it's not very clear what you're supposed to do. Luckily we walked in to the film before it started but many people missed the beginning. And after the film nobody knew what to do either
4) Perhaps I was 'unlucky' but I didn't wear a costume based on people here saying it was a 50/50 split, but it was more like 99/1 last night, I definitely looked out of place in normal clothes.

But overall I highly recommend it!

Would really love to go to this! Pretty impressive that it's grossed enough to make it into the top 10 uk films for the last couple of weeks!
Collecting SW since 1980.

I've been away from SWFUK for far too long... and consequently I've only just heard about this, now I'm not free on any of the remaining dates... DAMN!

Great to hear from you again Martin. You simply must make yourself available, that's if they have any tickets left. A truly magical fantastic, sensory overload of an experience. Jules loved it, in fact she got goosebumps on a couple of occasions!
