We had the best time at our Second Screen Live Experience. This is the first one we’ve been to and we’ve always been curious. PLUS, Nightmare Before Christmas is one of our favorite family movies. The kids couldn’t get over that I could “Break The Rules” and bring my ipad. We were all excited and ddin’t know what to expect. I had downloaded the app at home before we went to the theater. Once in theater, simple easy to use directions popped up on the screen and talked me through getting the app set up.
We had a BLAST! Seriously, one of the best experiences at a theater ever. We played games, had sing a longs, played some Nightmare Casino, and more. We all took turns with the ipad. Even Dad got in on the action. In the beginning they had you spin a wheel to decide what team you were on and we got Jack’s team. It pits the audience against each other. Your both screaming, playing games, and singing for points. Our team won! Bottom line is if you have a chance to do ANY Second Screen Live Experience you should. Make sure it’s a movie you’ve seen before so you know the songs, etc. We can’t wait for the next event in our area!
