Armageddon Expo Auckland

What self respecting Sci Fi Fantasy geek would pass up the opportunity to attend the Armageddon Expo??

Not this one!  

It was fabulous.  Plenty of interactive activities, famous (ish) stars and people dressed up to satisfy fans of all ages.  Add some attractions on the outside, some overpriced hotdogs and chips, and you have yourself a great day out.  I particularly loved the PS4 section - great music and some fabulous new tech to get the most unenthusiastic gamer excited.

I would have to say that any main gamer company you can think of was represented there today - the tech on display was simply fabulous.  Add to it the big screens, chances to game and fabulous costumes - it just 'buzzed'.

Squirt loved every minute of it - proclaiming every 20 minutes or so "best day EVA!!".  You know as a parent its good value when kids under 12 are free with a paying adult and they don't moan about wanting to go home!

Even the pro wrestling was good entertainment - I would add however, that to be up close is ofactory experience - and not necessarily of a positive kind.  Men flinging themselves around a small arena tend to get a bit sweaty.

The ques for signing autographs were quite astounding - who would have thought so many Sci Fi fans lived in Auckland.

It was a great days entertainment and good value for money - a good 4.5 out of 5!!  We will be there next year!
