VISITOR RELATED F.A.Q
Q11) LAST YEAR, I HAD HARD TIME FINDING A PARKING SPOT. DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH SPACE THIS YEAR?
a) Sorry for any inconvenience. The previous venue was one of the most popular sightseeing spot in California, so all the visitors share the parking lot. However this year there will be more options of public parking around the Marina Green Park, and also Long Beach Convention Center’s Parking lot is visitor parking.
For more information please visit LOCATION/TIME PAGE.
Q12) I WAS IN A VERY LONG LINE TO PURCHASE A TICKET AT THE ENTRANCE. CAN YOU DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT?
a) General security check also slows down the speed in lines at the entrance time to time. This year we have more numbers of staff and scanners added to serve visitors faster at the ticket sales booth.
Q13) DO YOU SELL ADMISSION TICKETS ON LINE?
a) Yes. E- tickets sales are available on-line for express entry and for your convenience. Please check back the E-tickets sale page in August.
Q14) Why do you have only 1 entrance?
Out of an abundance of caution we will have heightened security, so there will be only one initial entry point on the North/East side. We will have other gates for exit and re-entry with a hand stamp. Be prepared for bag checks and wanding to take place at each entry point by security.
