Hello all, 

 What hours will the Will Call be open?  Is it available Wednesday night?  I thought I saw somewhere it was open 24 hours, but I can't find that reference.

Thanks!

On Wednesday, what is the best time to go to will call?  I remember waiting 30+ minutes last year.

The line never took more than 20-30 minutes to process last year, however, that's once it started at noon; I know some people did line up several hours in advance, though that wasn't necessary.  A lot of people are eager to get their badge first thing, and I get that, but it's not going to be really bad any time after that.  Now, if you CAN go later in the evening, that's probably going to be the least amount of time you'll have to wait.

I usually roll into Indy about 5-6 Wednesday evening and after check in and such go over to pick up my stuff maybe 6-6:30. Last year I ended up waaaaaay down at the end of the long Wabash? corridor near the entrance next to the baseball stadium what looked like a hopelessly long line. Still took only about 25-30 minutes.

Seconded: while the lineup on Wednesday might look scary it moves pretty fast, last year took me maybe 20 minutes after joining the line about 1:30 p.m.

And 20-30 minutes is a breeze compared to the sometimes-hours it took in years past - they've put a lot of work into streamlining the process, and it shows.

Thirded: The last two years the Will Call line has been the fastest-moving queue I have ever seen.  Last year we started out past the Maryland Street food court and had our badges in 22 minutes. 

Big kudos to the GC staff and volunteers for their hard work on that!
