NC: Hunger Games Fan Tours

Published Date Author: , April 8th, 2012

Hunger Games TourThe Hunger Games mania has officially hit the tourism industry. Fans who were inspired by the survival skills, archery, and action in the blockbuster hit can tap into their inner Katniss Everdeen or Peeta Mellark with several recently announced tours in North Carolina, where much of the movie was filmed. On select weekends throughout the summer, Hunger Games Fan Tours is offering both day trips and weekend outings that teach guests fundamental survival skills like orienteering, archery, and shelter building, based in DuPont State Recreational Forest – a.k.a, the Arena where the Games took place.

In addition, North Carolina’s official tourism and travel website has outlined two self-guided tours that highlight filming locations and attractions where the cast stayed, ate, and dined throughout the state.

The Hunger Games Fan Tours includes a daylong tour of exploring DuPont State Park, which encompasses 10,000 acres of forest, trails, and waterfalls between Hendersonville and Brevard, with your “sponsor” to discover the film locations. You’ll learn basic survival skills that Katniss and other tributes demonstrated in the movie, such as orienteering, camo-face painting, and shelter-building.

[…] – Become a Fan! – Follow Us! The Hunger Games may be following the lead of the The Twilight Saga — ClevverTV tells you why up next! Hello Hunger Games Fans. I'm Joslyn Davis at the ClevverTV home base in Hollywood, with word on the highly anticipated film franchise starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth. According to a report from Deadline, studio execs over at Lionsgate might be considering turning the film trilogy into a four movie franchise — which reminds of both the Twilight Saga and the Harry Potter Films, both of which split the last book into two movies. However, we're not sure as to where the break would come, or whether it would be "Catching Fire" or "Mockingjay" that would potentially be split into two movies. However, we do think that The Hunger Games has more potential than anything else out there right now to really create the same kind of phenomenon as previous franchises like those previously mentioned. But what do you guys think? I've read the books myself and I think they're amazing and I'm absolutely dying to see the movies, especially now they we know the high talent level of the cast. Will be it be 3 movies or 4? Why don't you guys hit the comments section to have your vote heard and make sure to subscribe to ClevverTV on YouTube for updates on this movie as we get them. Until next time, I'm Joslyn Davis in Hollywood — thanks for watching! Video Rating: 4 / 5 – Become a Fan! – Follow Us! The Hunger Games may be following the lead of…owfullscreen="true"> […]
