WrestleMania 31 - The Ultimate Travel Thread II (Please read OP first!)

Thanks to EVERYONE who contributed in the WrestleMania 30 thread and the OP in that thread 'Abnorman' for creating the thread and idea. His complete and thOrough explanation served as the template for this thread. Here is all the information that we've collected so far for WrestleMania 31. Thanks to 'PoyPoy14 for taking time to color code and format this OP. Thanks to aaaaaaaahhhhhh for creating the attractions map and this resource




  • One option is to forego the packages and book everything separately. There's a trade off here: Value for increased hassle.
  • In general, it's best to be ready to buy your tickets DAY-OF to ensure the best seats. It usually takes a while for things to sell out (Axxess, especially, tends to have availability almost up to the event), but you don't want to get caught having to hit StubHub for tickets at beefed-up prices.
  • PRESALE: There should be a presale on Ticketmaster a few days before the general sale. You will require codes to access this sale. Follow @Wrestlemania and @LevisStadium on Twitter and keep an eye out on this forum and the dirtsheets for all the codes, which will be easy to find.
  • International buyers will have to pick their tickets up at Will Call (not a major hassle this year). US buyers can get theirs delivered. Last year, Ticketmaster added an option for international buyers to print at home for WrestleMania (not RAW).
  • In previous years, people have gamed the system by opening a separate (US) Ticketmaster account and transferring their tickets, thus being able to print 'em out and skip Will Call.


* Camera lenses cannot exceed 6" when fully extended. No video cameras are allowed.

*For Levi's Stadium, they follow the standard NFL bag policy as well as their own additional security policies. Be advised that the sign/banner policy would most likely be lifted for this event.

  • The Hall of Fame is a long night of speeches and little in the way of action. If you're not that into the history of wrestling, you may get bored. Otherwise, it's a great event.
  • Lots of fans like to suit up for the HoF, but casual attire is fine.

  • For the past three years, the post-WrestleMania RAW has rivaled WrestleMania itself for entertainment value.
  • Only 4 day package buyers will have automatic entry to RAW. 3-day packages do not include RAW tickets.
  • Most of the head-on sections in the lower bowl seem to have been taken by the packages. Presale opened up the 300's and the far end 100's. Lower bowl was gone within 10 minutes, upper bowl took roughly 6-8 weeks to sell out.

  • VIP tickets get you into normal general-admission Axxess, plus entitle you to an autograph/photo with a big name superstar.
  • WWE will release the list of which superstars are scheduled, and you can scramble to book them.
  • These tickets go INSANELY QUICKLY, and Ticketmaster have screwed up 2 years running, so expect a lot of stress when it comes time to buy.



  • For flight deals, try Skyscanner.net, Farecompare.com or Kayak.com.
  • Try a few configurations. There's plenty of airports in the US - try breaking up your flight: fly into a hub airport, and then book an onward flight to San Jose, Oakland or San Francisco. Alternatively, try booking a flight to nearby airports and taxi/bus/train to San Jose/Santa Clara.
  • In the USA, flying is often just as cheap (and much faster!) as going by train or bus, so don't assume ground transport will be the best value.
  • Local airlines may have deals: Delta, AirTran, JetBlue SouthWest or Spirit (Oakland Only). Many will charge separately for hold luggage and other perks.
  • Their are 3 airports to choose from : San Fran and Oakland (38 Minutes away from Levi's Stadium) and San Jose (10 minutes away from Levi's Stadium).
  • Unlike New Orleans, you will be able to get to the Bay Area easy VIA Amtrak. Use Code V636 to save 15% off of your travel, expires 8/31


  • VTA.org will give you information about getting around San Jose and Silicon Valley
  • Bart.org will give you information about getting around San Francisco and Oakland
  • Caltrain.com will give you information to get between San Francisco and San Jose
  • Be advised, It is 8.5 miles from Downtown San Jose to Levi's Stadium. Both VTA and CalTrans will have service going to and from the Stadium, it is unclear if AmTrak will as well.


(These will be made soon)
  • Head to this Facebook page for meet-ups, etc.
  • There's a pretty big Facebook event page made up of (mostly) people from this forum. Check it out here.

MERCHANDISE: Never fear: the WWE will take every opportunity to get money from you. They usually operate a big WWE Store on the stadium grounds with all the goodies. One thing I like (because I always get a souvenir program) is that you can buy program at any time - so you don't have to look after it during an event.

* WrestleMania week doesn't end with the WWE! If you crave even more wrasslin', there'll be a variety of smaller events by other companies making a quick buck off the WrestleMania crowd. Needless to say, these are not included in the travel packages.

  • Firstly, WikiVoyage and Tripadvisor are your friends.
  • You will be driving distance of many popular tourist spots along the West Coast.

    (Roughly within a 4 hour drive)

    Napa Valley
    Reno, NV
    Monterey,CA (Pebble Beach)
    Lake Tahoe
    Yosemite National Park
    Sequoia National Park

    (Roughly within a 8 hour drive)

    Death Valley
    Los Angeles
    Las Vegas
    Grand Canyon
    Redwood's National Forest
    Portland, OR
    San Diego

  • (Area I will need help in filling in for food. The Bay area is known for seafood and San Francisco style burritos. There is a Chinatown in SF and a Japantown in SJ)
  • Drinking age in the US is 21, and it's extremely rare to find any bar or shop that doesn't require ID. For international visitors, this usually means you'll have to carry your passport to bars, etc, as often this is the only form of international ID that will be accepted.
  • Do a bit of research and you can find something a bit more authentic to suit any budget.

    Local delicacies include:

    Definally eating:Links to menus inside names of restaurants.
    iconCarl's Jr.: Fast food burgers with unique combinations. Favorites are the Western Bacon Cheeseburger (Onion Rings, Bacon and Smoky BBQ sauce) and the Santa Fe Chicken Sandwich (Green Chilie and Santa Fe Sauce which is a bold mildly spicy sauce.) Haven't ate there since moving back east.

    In-n-Out: Fresh fast food burger joint. Personal favorite is the cheeseburger (single or double-double), grilled whole onion, made animal style (extra thousand island sauce, melted cheese and patty is marinated in mustard before grilling) extra toast (bun is grilled), animal style fries, well done (extra crispy) and either Bubble Up (7-Up/Pink Lemonade Mix) or a neapolitan shake (strawberry, chocolate and vanilla shale in one cup)

    GHIRARDELLI Ice Cream And Chocolate Shop in SF: Ice Cream Sundaes

    Chick-Fil-A: Fast Food chicken sandwich's. Personal recommendation is a Spicy Chicken Biscuit for breakfast, honey on the side or a Spicy Chicken Sandwich with Jack Cheese and mayo on the side for lunch/dinner with waffle fries and lemonade.

    BJ's Restaurant and Brewery: American causal fare with hand crafted sodas, microbrew beers and home of the Pizookie, a fresh baked pan cookie in several flavors topped with ice cream. Food is pretty good

    Fogo de Chao: Brazilian Steakhouse, all you can eat table side service. Has a world class salad bar to boot.

    Iguanas Home of the Burritozilla: SF style mexican street food (tortas, tacos, burritos)

    The Poor House: Authentic New Orleans food. I seriously need a po boy and a beignet. Been having withdraws since leaving New Orleans.

    Probably eating:
    El Pollo Loco: Mexican style fast food grilled chicken.

    Will not be eating but would recommend:

    The Cheesecake Factory: Huge portions of everything, plus cheesecake. Recommend the Buffalo Blast (Buffalo Chicken and cheese wrapped in won tong wrappers, deep fried and served with buffalo sauce and blue cheese dressing) Several cheesecakes that I like include the Trimisu, Red Velvet, Godiva Chocolate and Reese's PB.

    The Boiling Crab: Seafood: Famous for low country/cajun boil. Do not recommend if you do not eat shellfish.

    Red Robin: Specialty Burgers with unlimited fries. Personal recommendation: Blue Ribbon Burger

  • San Fran tourist centre is very LGBT-friendly, with several gay clubs & bars.


  • Each year, the WWE offer several travel packages for people to buy. They include all the major WWE events on WrestleMania weekend and hotel accommodation.
  • The trade off with packages is that they're expensive, but convenient: one relatively stress-free purchase for major WWE events & accommodation.

  • Gold & Silver sold out in less than a week.

Re: Wrestlemania 31 - Travel thread.

I booked my hotel at the Hilton Santa Clara last week as soon as they went up for reservations. 5 minute walk to Levi's Stadium. Might change it later on rates and such.

Re: Wrestlemania 31 - Travel thread.

I'm going alone. Most likely staying in the Hilton Santa Clara in the feint hope that's where a few of the superstars will be and mostly because of convenience.

Re: Wrestlemania 31 - Travel thread.

I'm looking to go next year, hopefully I can get three other people and we can book a travel package. It's difficult doing that though when I don't really know anybody who is enough of a fan as I am to spend that much money on wrestling.

Re: Wrestlemania 31 - Travel thread.

Me and a few friends are planning on going next year. We're looking to do the full monty of Hall of Fame, WM and Raw the night after.

Can any UK fans who've done it before give any indication on a rough budget?

Based on the small research i've done so far, Santa Clara doesn't really look to interesting.

I spent around £2500 - £3000 in Miami for WM28.
