    Quoted from DrDQ:

    The show was good, albeit a bit crowded. But shows that are empty will not last.
    The biggest yet easily correctible issue was the entrance with a single person at the window. That built up an unnecessary line. I think the organizers got caught off guard a bit as it seemed there was a heavy crowd at opening.
    Once inside it was crowded but wasn’t bad, the waiting lines for the new machines were long; especially Wonka and Octoberfest. Good thing Black Knight is so brutal it helped keep the line moving. But the less recent and older machines had minimal wait time.
    Yet at the same time for such a crowd it was a rare occasion to see anyone (all ages etc) that was rude or obnoxious. I wish all events were like this; try walking around a crowded casino and see how frustrating that can be.
    I can understand the frustration, shit happens. The organizers learn and adjust. I wouldn’t chalk it up to greed as much as demand and a growing form of entertainment.
    The folks running this show put a lot of time and effort into it and I am sure they will discuss any adjustments needed for future shows.
    As for prices; yes, in general there were a lot of machines with asking prices that were reaching new levels (some that were comical) But if there are no takers then the prices will drop (even during the show).

    Well said. The ONLY issue was the single person taking money, single person taking ticket, and single person issuing wrist band.
    I spoke to an unnamed organizer about this and they realized the issue and plan to amend it somehow to correct the 2 hour wait in line.
