Horton Grand Theatre Ticketing Process?

<< < (2/4) > >>

Yeah I'm definitely trying for Babylon 5 on Saturday! Just to clarify - are the Horton Grand ticket drawings exactly like the autographs drawings in Sails (i.e. I draw a ticket out of a bowl & hope I pick a winning one)? Or are they a lottery drawing where you give your name and then they draw winners from out of a bowl? The description on the CCI website makes it sound like the latter, but from some people's accounts it's possibly the former - and it will definitely impact the time I show up!

Thanks :)

It's draw a slip and if it is a winner you get tickets to the panel/autographing session right then and there.

You are not allowed to view links. Register or LoginWe did one of the Horton Grand panels last year. We got in line as the Everything Else line was moving inside, and joined a small holding area across from B20. It was mostly full when we got there, and then they started sending people outside to line up. The line was for all CCI run drawings that day, including Horton Grand panels and CCI-run autographs. But they couldn't hold the drawings until the other ones were done in the Sails... and that took forever. Our drawing wasn't until 10 am, even though they said it would be at 9 am.

Once they finished giving out panel tickets (seats pre-assigned, 2 tickets given out per winning draw) they gave out standby tickets. At our panel, not everyone with tickets showed up, and they let in all of the standby.

So after they let people in the Everything Else line inside, you had to wait in two separate lines? The first line was to wait for the the big drawings (Fox, WB, etc.) to finish? And only after that were you allowed to wait in the actual line for what you wanted (Horton Grand panels)?

Sort of. You have one line outside B20, then you split up to immediately when they let you in to the individual drawings. So yeah, that's another 'line', but not very long.

Gotcha. What happens if you don't draw a winning ticket? Do you go to the end of the individual drawing line, or to the end of the line outside B20?
