Do I have to get in line before 8pm?
« on: May 14, 2015, 10:22:20 AM »

Ive been going to fanime for a while now and everytime i go, I go early so when they open I can just get in and get out.

But usually even if im close to the beggining of the line SOMETIMES I wont get my badge until way later. Last time it was already 10pm and i finally got ahold of my badge.

This is for Thursday...
If pick up closes at 8pm do I have to make sure im in line before that time In order to pick up my badge? Like can i jump in the line at 7:59pm and still be elegible to pick up my badge.

well for sure im not going to get there at 7:59pm i was just saying as an example. Im just trying to decide to either get there stupid early and wait in a long line for a long time or get there later in the day while the line is moving and and just get out whenever i get out.

I didn't even have to wait in line on Thursday last year, I showed up around 3PM and just went straight inside, didn't take more than 5-10 minutes.

The new reg system feels about 40 times faster than the old one. I, along with everyone else, fully expected a multi hour wait last year and was basically dumbfounded by how fast it went. The wait only took as long as it physically took me to walk through the zig-zag queue they had set up. I don't see why they would deviate from what worked so well last year.

To actually answer your question, yes. You will need to be in line before 8pm because staff will close the queue to late arrivals.

^-- Yeah, my group got there around 5 on day zero expecting a long wait in line. Instead we ended up all "... We already have our badges, EFF NO to that swap meet line... so... uh.... we have several extra hours to kill that were originally budgeted for 'wait in prereg line hell'...."
