With summer in full swing, vacations are on our minds. For Hunger Games fans an awesome way to spend your vacation could be a trip to North Carolina where you can get the true Hunger Games experience.
One fan @T_Mauricexo recently did the tour and shared this account of her experience :
This past weekend, I (@T_Mauricexo) was able to take a tour of the filming locations for The Hunger Games in Brevard, NC. Hunger Games Fan Tours offer tours into the heart of the “Arena” aka Dupont National Forest. Our first stop was Triple Falls. There are several scenes filmed at this one location, most of them revolving around Katniss looking for Peeta by the river. The first scene they filmed was Katniss hopping across the rocks right here :
The rising river has almost covered the rocks, but you can see the tops of them. When Jennifer filmed this scene, the river was a lot lower and calmer. The next scene filmed here is Katniss finding blood on the rocks. HGFT offers fans a great opportunity to try on an exact replica of Katniss’ jacket and pose in the exact same spot as Jennifer. It is definitely a must for any Hunger Games fan.
After trying on that jacket, I suddenly realized how hard Jennifer had to work. The jacket is basically 2 jackets and in the heat of the summer, it must have been sweltering. A few feet away from where Katniss finds Peeta’s blood is where she finds Peeta himself. There are actually a few funny stories from this spot including Josh laying on a snake and scaring a park ranger, but I’ll let you hear more about that when you go on your own Hunger Games Fan Tour.
