Welcome to the Virtual Queue
 
Welcome to the virtual queue! Because tickets are in such high demand, we?ve created this queue to make sure your ticket buying experience is as painless as possible. Once it?s your turn, you will automatically be brought to the new ticketing system to purchase your tickets. Remember, there?s a limited time frame available once you?ve made it to the front, so be sure to have your credit card info handy. And whatever you do, don?t hit refresh while you?re waiting!

Get ready ? this page will automatically take you to the ticketing system when it?s your turn to purchase tickets!


How does this queue thing work?

We use the queue to make sure that tickets are sold in an orderly and fair way. Customers enter the queue in the order in which they arrive after the on sale begins. When you are placed in the queue, a unique cookie identifies you and allows us to hold your place in line.

As long as your browser is open, you will not lose your place and you will be automatically taken to the checkout process when it is your turn, without needing to refresh.

What if I get an error page?

Getting an error page will not result in you losing your place in the queue or tickets in your cart.

The queue is made of many, many servers. In the unlikely event that you get an error page, it is possible that you landed on a misbehaving server or group of servers. This is why we painstakingly monitor for misbehaving servers and take them out on the fly.

If you encounter an error, just refresh once or twice. There is a good chance you'll be returned onto a behaving server. If the error persists, please do not continue to refresh repeatedly ? you'll risk getting throttled or blocked.

What happens if I refresh?

The queue page will automatically take you into the checkout when it is your turn, so you should not need to refresh. Refreshing does not improve your odds of getting through the queue.

If you do refresh, you will keep your place in line. That said, our load balancers will automatically throttle and even block users that it deems malicious, so don't go overboard spamming your Refresh button.

What are the technical requirements for the queue?

To properly maintain your place in the queue, your browser must support cookies and javascript.

All current major browsers support these features by default, so unless you explicitly turned the features off, you'll be fine. The queue page will let you know in advance if we detect that your browser is incompatible.

I assume they'll be giving updates on the inventory? Hopefully this doesn't take me an eternity because I told my coworkers that I would hopefully only be 20 minutes late or so (oops.)

How long do you think the wait in the que will be? I need to leave the office in two hours and I don't want to lose my spot in line if I have to go!

If it is like SDCC and you need 4 day, I would be surprised if they are not gone at the 30 minute mark.

I was in the queue for 90 minutes last year and I got two 4 day passes so they last at least a little bit.

No idea, their twitter said they didn't have estimates.

I'm technically supposed to be at the office but I just told them something came up and I'd be late. Of course now I'm having to tell them it may take a bit longer than I had anticipated. I should have just done this at the office.

I'm trying to get at least a one day pass for my boyfriend. I'm covered for 4 days, but I'm trying to get his pass for him with his login info. I'm hoping for a 3 or 4 day pass, but i'll settle for at least a one day ticket for him. It'll be our first time going to NYCC. Anyone get through yet?

I wish there was some kind of thingy on the page to let you know you are still waiting instead of a static screen.

I agree,  there is a little flash every once in a while but that is about all I see.

Just got through and got 4 four day passes. Potentially 1 or 2 people may cancel from our group so if they do the next day or two I will put them up for grabs here.
