Star Wars resort LARP survey on Swagbucks – would you pay $900 for 2 nights?

Star Wars, resort, and live action roleplaying (LARP) sounds like a winning combination to me. It may never happen, but we can be sure someone is considering it because there is a marketing research survey on Swagbucks right now.

The potential Disney resort would feature a Star Wars theme where guests stay stay in a starship. It’s interesting that video games often go with strong science fiction or fantasy brands. I’ve seen games based on intellectual property (IP)s inlcuding Star Wars, Star Trek, Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, Marvel, DC, and more. LARPing is a much smaller business and the business model doesn’t include money for licensing a name brand. There was a magic school LARP recently that was either inspired by or a ripoff of Harry Potter, but they didn’t actually use / pay for the Harry Potter IP.

So a Star Wars LARP would be pretty unique – so far we’ve never seen a LARP based on such a famous IP. What do you say to $900 per person for…

  • 2 nights in a luxury resort that looks and feels like a starwars space craft
  • Rooms for up to 4 people with a galaxy view or a pool/atrium view
  • Meals provided, including buffet breakfast and dinners with entertainment (Jaba the Hut style entertainment?)
  • 1 day of Walt Disney World admission to Hollywood Studios
  • Live character chance encounters
  • Take part in a Star Wars story through personalized secret missions, flight training, starship exploration, and lightsaber training.

Please leave a comment to let us know what you think about a Star Wars LARP. Also, if you’ve taken the survey, please let me know if I’ve missed any important details.
