Are you a Hunger Games mega fan? Have you ever wanted to go behind the scenes of one of the most popular movies ever made? With Hunger Games Unofficial fan Tours in Atlanta, you can experience the Hunger Games like never before! You can walk where your favorite characters walked and experience some of what they experienced.
You start your journey at District 12. Watch a recreation of the heroic scene where Catniss comes to the aid of gale as he is apprehended by the peacekeepers. Even better is that you can take on the role of your favorite character and participate in the reenactment. Depending on the group that you are with, this could be hilarious! Learn little tidbits about the challenges of filming in this location as well as funny stories from the people on set.
After your extensive tour of District 12, you will board the shuttle bus and head to President Snow’s mansion for a grand tour of the tyrant’s home. The scenes at President Snow’s Mansion were filmed at the historical Swan House on the grounds of the Atlanta History Center. This magnificent mansion was transformed into the beautiful home of the evil President Snow. Here you can sit at the president’s desk, at his dining table and address all your subjects on the grand, presidential balcony. There is also an exhibit room to see some of the props left behind from the filming and pictures so that you can see what transformations took place to create the perfect mansion for the president.
At this point our stomachs were grumbling as we hopped on the bus to head to our final destination, thankfully the gamemaker saw fit to provide us with some sustenance on our journey. We were treated to nightshade berries, roll with goat cheese and basil, nuts and berries, jerky, tomatoes and of course a drink to quench our thirst. Perfect nourishment for us tributes.
The final stop was south of Atlanta at the International park. This was the scene of the actual Hunger Games from Catching fire. You will see where the Cornucopia was located and got the nitty gritty details of filming in a cold lake in the middle of December.
Next up is my favorite part, the archery lesson! We got instruction in archery and got to spend some perfecting our new found skill with some target practice.
Next we got back on the shuttle and headed home, sad to be heading home. Our spirits were lifted with a fun game of Hunger Games trivia for the ride back.
Our guides were Tammy, Leigh, Emma and Tyler. They were awesome! They were hilarious and friendly. The tour was good on its own, but they made the tour fantastic!
When we got back to district 12 we were sad that the tour was over but happy to have survived the Hunger Games!
This tour is a must do for any die hard Hunger Games fan, or any movie buff for that matter! Fun tour and great guides made for a wonderful day!
