    I would be quite excited about all the new things added to the experience since it opened, but something posessed me to go to the event the tuesday after it opened. BIG mistake –
    SUPER crowded (the experience part was so crowded you couldn’t appreciate all the work that had gone into it, and they were 30 mins behind schedule due to a power cut. Seemed to me that they made the walkthrough part last less time)
    The things in the shop were a bit of a rip off. Pandorica figures were £12 at least. And they didn’t have the Amelia figure(it hadn’t been announced then). Since then I have gone to the shop and craftily been able to get 3(keep 1 sell 2)(they only sell 2 to each person)
    The entry cost means I probably won’t be able to go in to it again – unless they change the entire thing which would make a good enough reason to beg to go

      not that Im saying it was bad, just that I went on the wrong day

      we went on the 1st day and were disappointed at the lack of exclusive merchandise, we were expecting mugs, t shirts etc but there was nothing. The prices were as i was expecting, nothing unusual about that for an exhibition shop. having said that it was a brilliant day and they were always going to do/add things to encourage people to go again – we might certainly make return before it ends i London

      When we went 1st time they had 2 sorts of tshirts.
      The time when I went to the shop again the prices were normal and the had the junk tardis, time lord container thingys and generally more stuff.
      I think I’ll only be able to go again if they made a major change e.g. the plot/content of the walkthrough.

      thanks for replying and for your opinion, btw


    July 22nd, 2011 - 5:21pm

    Cool, is there anything else anyone thinks should be added to the Experience?

    • booboo

      July 22nd, 2011 - 5:25pm

      they have added quite a lot since we went at the begging but there is always room for more


      July 22nd, 2011 - 5:28pm

      Booboo, what else have they added since the start, and is there anything you would especially like to see there?

    • booboo

      July 22nd, 2011 - 5:33pm
