The Best Transformers Camp Out You'll Ever See

July 2, 2007

Back in May for Spider-Man 3 we showed you our "ultimate" camp out, featuring plywood walls, couches, and more. Now we've taken that experience to an even greater level yet again. This time it's for Transformers (and eventually Harry Potter, too), and we've really ramped it up to make it the greatest camp out you'll ever see. I know some of you will roll your eyes, and I know some of you will be too excited for words, but let's say we do this because we love it and love putting together something that every last person who walks by is impressed at. So without further ado, feast your eyes on the best Transformers camp out you'll ever see!

We've nicknamed it our chateau, as it's much more than just a camp site. So far it's been up for one week before Spider-Man 3, one week before Pirates of the Caribbean 3, and now one week before Transformers going all the way through Harry Potter 5.

The camp features: four individual 8 feet high plywood walls donated by Lowes; a removable and lockable door section to secure it from any entry; fully carpeted interior; a projector setup and a 5.1 surround sound system; a GameCrazy demo station in the back corner with the Transformers game and Harry Potter game; a faux leather couch, chairs, and other furniture; free popcorn; a hammock, and much more!

Thanks to Cinemark for allowing us to build this yet again and work with them!

We hope you enjoyed our setup. If you're in Colorado, stop by and check it out. It's quite a site to see in person and we're excited to put together something that no one else out there has ever done before.

This is the last time we'll have this built and up during this summer, but we'll be back again next summer for Iron Man, Indiana Jones IV, The Dark Knight, and plenty more.

Wish I could be there, I'm getting ready to go on to my theater soon.

Why aren't you doing this for Harry Potter?

Who says we aren't?

Unless i'm misunderstanding this: "This is the last time we'll have this built and up during this summer, but we'll be back again next summer for Iron Man, Indiana Jones IV, The Dark Knight, and plenty more." Hopefully I'm just misinterpreting this because it's a great idea to have something like this at the movie theaters!

Great movie! Can't wait to see it again!!!

It's entirely possible that I missed part of the conversation, but there was at least some discussion of just leaving it up through Harry Potter. Even if the chateau is taken down, we're still gonna do an event for Harry Potter. We'll still be found lurking around the theater.

Sweet, thanks Dave! Also transformers was great. Just got back from it. Balls to the wall action from start to finish. Damn that was a fun ride.

Man you guys are crazy. How many people do you actually get who come in and play you in a game or watch a video with you?

I totally forgot to post this yesterday, but I talked with Alex and we're going to be leaving the chateau de geek up until Harry Potter. There are still movies that we're excited to see (The Bourne Ultimatum being one of my picks), but it's looking like the camp-out vibe will pretty much end for the summer (at least for us) with Harry Potter. Warner Brothers tends to send us some pretty cool stuff, so Harry Potter should be pretty crazy.
