Monday meant the players who travelled to LA for the WPT Celebrity Invitational had a day off in Los Angeles. We gave the players a couple of options but the overwhelming favourite was a trip to Universal Studios. In total twenty of the players came along for a day of rides, attractions and fun. Some of the favourites included the Simpsons 3D IMAX ride which was very impressive, the Jurassic Park water ride and the Mummy indoor rollercoaster.
Many of the players also took the studio tour around the huge area of movie and TV sets. Some of the old famous sets for films such as Jaws have been on the Universal lot for years while others such as the set for Desperate Housewives (Wisteria Lane) would seem to be much more recent. In fact many of the houses on Wisteria Lane have been used in various older movies such as The Munsters and The Burbs.
Many of the players are flying home tomorrow so they wanted to enjoy their last day in Los Angeles. The other players are heading off to Las Vegas to extend their trips with a few days of fun in Sin City. All the players have had a great trip to Los Angeles for the WPT Celebrity Invitational. On Thursday we have a group of players arriving for the LA Poker Classic Main Event. We’ll see you there.
