I have 3 people, including me, who will be attending the PAX gaming event that will be happening between August 25th-27th. But the thing is, we werent able to Pre-register before hand, when we really wanted to. So we're going to have to buy the passes at the door, we will only be attending on Saturday.
So my question is, would anyone really have an approximation of how long the lines used to be or might be when we get there? Is there a certain required time that we should get there besides 9:00 in order to buy the passes? We would like to get the passes as soon as possible to make our gaming experience go along quite well.

Hopefully someone can answer me back, i also would like to know what to expect while getting the passes at the door? Do we need to bring any specifics beside the amount to pay for it? How will they take us through the process of getting the passes/tickets?

Thanks for reading!

    Both the pre-reg line and the day-of lines were insane last year. Expect more of the same. :)

    I would reccommend getting there at 6am, tomorrow and waiting in front of the Meydenbauer center for the rest of the week to make sure you're first in line.

    Wow, and here Spook thought he could be first if he camped out on Thursday night. Guess he was wrong.

    Although the lines are epic, they aren't stagnant; they move at a pretty nice clip once things get going. Unless this year is going to be different.

    How about Pre-Reggers, what time should we show up to expect to be decently close to the front of the line?

    The people that evidently are getting there so early ARE the pre-registered people.

    The prereg line will be huge, but will move very quickly once the doors open. Id say get there EARLY on friday, like 8am if you want to be toward the front :P

    Are they doing the same thing with concerts wristbands this year? Will the be more room in the concert halls? Getting in wasn't a problem last year, but this year is going to be much bigger, right?

    I'm willing to participate in a bloodsport-esque tournament if need be.

    Yes on wristbands. No on concert hall bigger. Its in the same room, might be setup slightly differently though.

    GET TO THE PREREG LINE EARLY IF YOU WANT INTO THE CONCERTS!

    Errr, what about for the will-call desk for people who didn't get their passes mailed to them? Do you expect that line to be bothersome? Or is that the same line for day-of people?

    After an email from a friend today, I'm suddenly concerned. I apologize if I am being a pain.
