#5

Thanks for the info! I actually moved to Ohio this year, so maybe I’ll finally go! Do you know what’s included in the VIP packages?


#6

You are quite welcome. I love this show. My best piece of advice is go to the Expo on Friday and get there early! If you go on Saturday, get there very early. Saturday afternoon is so crowded you almost can’t move. It’s not pleasant…LOL


#7

Reserved Central Seating in VIP section at the Saturday Evening Pro Show 7PM

#8

Is there a bundle for tickets to the Expo for all the days and an option to get in earlier like the Olympia? I’d like to go to the Arnold for the first time


#9

The expo tickets are non-date specific. They can be used any of the days… Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. If you purchase the 3 Admission Expo ticket for $40 you can use this ticket on all 3 days or 3 different people can use it on one day.
As for getting in early, other than the VIP packages, I don’t know of a way at this time. I will keep checking on this for you.


#10

Unless you work the event. You will not get in early. There is tons of security outside the doors.


#11

Here is the current entry list for this show…It looks like a solid lineup.
