Our shuttle from the hotel to the event arrived promptly at 10am. From there, it was about 20 minutes to the Olympic Park. And when we arrived, oh what a spectacle! Throngs of fans were waiting in line outside for the venue to open; there was bungee jumping, a hot air balloon, live music... even clowns. Every single person had a smile on their face. It literally seemed like the happiest place on Earth -- like Disney World, only Blizzard-themed. But don't take my word for it... Hit the jump to see the wonder that is the Blizzard Worldwide Invitational.
The line continues...
I told you there were clowns! (That's Melissa.)
Someone drove here in style.
This trio was amazing. (And yes, the one on the left has a keytar.)
StarCraft bungee jumping ("dragon bungee").
The World of Warcraft hot air balloon. Awesome.
