WrestleMania 34 - The Ultimate Travel Thread





1. TICKET INFORMATION & SEATING CHARTS & TRAVEL PACKAGE INFORMATION

2. WRESTLEMANIA WEEKEND EVENTS

3. TRANSPORTATION & ACCOMMODATION

4. TOURISM

5. BUYING & SELLING TICKETS FROM FORUM USERS


_____________________________________________________


1. TICKET INFORMATION & SEATING CHARTS & TRAVEL PACKAGE INFORMATION

Spoiler for Ticket Information:
  • One option is to buy a travel package. These are very expensive but really convenient so it really depends on what you value more; convenience or saving money. If you want to get a seat within the first couple of rows at Wrestlemania, then the top package is probably the best way to achieve that. Additionally, if you live in a country in which all of the ticket on-sale times are in the early hours of the morning, then a travel package will probably save you some mega headaches! Alternatively, you can save a bucket load of money by purchasing all of your tickets and booking your hotel separately.

    If you don't find the seats you want in the initial pre-sale, or even on the day of general sale, then don't panic. Good seats are often released much later on in the process and you can still grab yourself a great seat close to the event. Also, if you're willing to play the waiting game, you could even snag yourself a great deal on StubHub on the week of the event. RAW IS AN EXCEPTION to this line of thinking, and you should grab any seats you can get.

    PRESALE: There should be a presale on Ticketmaster a few days before the general sale for the majority of events. You will require codes to access this sale. Follow @Wrestlemania and @MBSuperdome on Twitter and keep an eye out on this forum and the dirtsheets for all the codes, which will be easy to find.

    For international buyers, delivery is never usually an option for tickets bought via ticketmaster. You will have to choose to either pick your tickets up at Will Call or to print them out yourself. If you choose the Will Call option and change your mind, you can transfer the tickets to yourself and select the e-ticket option. However, this is NOT possible the other way around.


POLICIES FOR WRESTLEMANIA, HOF & RAW:

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

    For the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, they follow the Mercedes-Benz Superdome A-Z Guide. If you want to know whether or not to risk your camera, seek the advice of more experienced forum members, who likely be happy to answer your questions. Be advised that the sign/banner policy would most likely be lifted for this event.

  • The Mercedes-Benz Superdome app is available on the iTunes & Google Play stores for those with US accounts.

_____________________________________________________


Hall Of Fame:



Friday 6th April 2018



Tickets on sale: DATE TBA

Presale: DATE TBA

Presale Codes:
TBA


  • The Hall of Fame is a long night of speeches, with the last few years reaching 4 hours long. It's a great event for listening to stories and honoring wrestling legends, but if you're not into listening to people talk for long periods of time, this probably isn't the event for you.

    Some people like to suit up for the event out of respect for the legends and that's cool, but be advised that this isn't mandatory and you can actually wear whatever you want.

    If you go to the event, PLEASE be respectful. A small minority of the crowd where giving out the 'what?' chants and heckling even Dana Warrior which really got under a lot of people's skins. You're there to respect the legends that have given their body to entertain you over the years, be respectful and save the chants for WrestleMania and RAW, where they are very welcome.

RAW:



Monday 9th April 2018



Tickets on sale: DATE TBA

Presale: DATE TBA

Presale Codes:
TBA




SmackDown Live:



Tuesday 10th April 2018



Tickets on sale: DATE TBA

Presale: DATE TBA

Presale Codes:
TBA



Raw and SmackDown Live Ticket Packages (same seats for both shows combo pack):

Tickets on sale: DATE TBA

Presale: DATE TBA

Presale Codes:
TBA







  • For the past few of years, the post-WrestleMania RAW has rivaled WrestleMania itself for entertainment value. And now SmackDown Live Has also been included in WrestleMania week. The crowd is always hyped and looking to steal the show, and regardless of what your thoughts of this are watching on TV, it's always fantastic to be a part of!

    Only 4 day package buyers will get tickets to RAW, and 5 day package buyers for SmackDown Live so keep this in mind when deciding which package to buy.


    Buy your tickets to RAW and SmackDown Live as soon as you can, as it's always the quickest event of the weekend to sell out. A big percentage of the good seats are already taken up by package holders, so you need to be on the ball if you don't have a package but want a good seat.

_____________________________________________________


AXXESS:



Thursday 5th April - Sunday 8th April 2018



Tickets on sale: DATE TBA

Presale: DATE TBA

Presale Codes:
TBA



Session times:
TBA


prices from WM 32:



General Admission: $50 + fees

VIP Session: $100 + fees

Premium VIP: $175 + fees

  • General admission tickets generally do not sell out and are even usually available to purchase on the day at the box office.

    VIP are a different story entirely and extremely difficult to get ahold of. You have to be on the ball and have a slice of luck on your side to get the VIP session you want, unless you are a package holder.

    Premium VIP is somewhere in between depending on the superstar. Some are difficult to get ahold of, with some not selling out for hours or days.

    Sometimes, extra tickets for VIP + Premium VIP are made available later down the road, so if you miss out on the superstar you want originally, then keep your eyes peeled.

    Yes, VIP and Premium VIP tickets also get you into the general admission sessions. (This question seems to get asked a lot)

_____________________________________________________


NXT:



Saturday 7th April 2018



Tickets on sale: DATE TBA

Presale: DATE TBA

Presale Codes:
TBA



With it seeming like WWE is positioning NXT as direct competition to the WrestleCon Supershow and ROH, expect these events to clash as they did this year. You may have to choose which you prefer!

This was one of the highlights of the whole week this year. Expect the same next year and expect this to be a very hot ticket, so again, be on the ball.


Spoiler for Seating Charts:

Smoothie King Center WWE Hall of Fame seating chart:

Spoiler for Travel Package Information:
  • 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. They are offered in 3, 4 and 5 day packages, with the 3 day package not including RAW or accommodation for Monday night and the 4 day Package not including SmackDown Live or accomodation for Tuesday night.

    As mentioned earlier, the trade off with packages is that they're expensive, but convenient: one relatively stress-free purchase for major WWE events & accommodation.

    Email travel.packages@wwe.com or call (001)203 359 5182 for any questions.

    Email wrestlemania.packages@wwecorp.com to request to be on the Travel Package mailing list.

Package Details:

  • The top-tier packages tend to sell out quickly, sometimes on the first day. By top-tier I mean from the top package, down to Platinum.


    One thing to remember is that you don't find out much information about your trip until later on. You'll recieve details about which hotel you're staying at in around December, and oftentimes you won't know what seats you have for Wrestlemania until very late.

2. WRESTLEMANIA WEEKEND EVENTS



Spoiler for WWE:
  • Don't worry if you want to get your hands on merchandise, as they sell it at all the events, plus have a huge superstore, usually in the same location as AXXESS. One thing I would say though, is get what you want from there as early as you can, as it usually doesn't take too long for them to start running out. Last year, the money in the bank briefcases kept getting sold out ridiculously fast.

    They also do a couple of bonus signings at the superstore throughout the week. This year there were superstars such as Kane and Sheamus. These signings are free, but you need a wristband for them, which are given out at a predetermined time (which will be announced closer to the time).

3. TRANSPORTATION & ACCOMMODATION



Spoiler for Transportation:
FLIGHTS:

  • For flight deals, try Skyscanner.net, Farecompare.com or Kayak.com.

    If you choose a flight with layovers over direct, then your flight will usually work out much cheaper.

    In the USA, flying is often just as cheap (and much faster!) as going by train or bus, so don't assume that ground transport will be the best value.

TRAINS:




CITY & PRIVATE TRANSPORTATION:

  • For The City of New Orleans Streetcar, Bus and Ferry boat transportation passes. norta.com

    For transit to and from the Airport to downtown New Orleans. http://www.jeffersontransit.org/default.php

    For private transport. Use Uber or Lyft instead of booking a taxi as it's much cheaper. You can easily get a code from this forum to get your first ride with both of these companies for free (to the value of $20). You can download the apps from the US App Store/Google Play store.


Spoiler for Accommodation:


  • For hotel deals, try sites like Hotwire.com, Kayak.com, Hotels.com, Booking.com or Lastminute.com.

    If you spot a deal or hotel that you like, you should check the hotel's official site as well before booking, you might get a better deal through them directly.

    For apartments & rooms, try AirBnB.com.

    For hostels, try Hostelworld.com

    Book your accommodation as EARLY as possible. A lot of people in this thread have ALREADY booked theirs. Most hotels don't charge you a deposit up front and offer free cancellation. Take advantage! Some people even like to book several hotels and then decide on which one they want closer to the time. Keep your options open.
WrestleCon Hotels:
  • TBA


WWNLive Experience Hotels:
  • TBA

4. TOURISM



Spoiler for Tourism:
  • New Orleans is a very LGBTQ freindly city with severly gay bars and clubs.

    Use neworleansonline.com to plan out all of your history tours and resturant visits.

    Also use, WikiVoyage and Tripadvisor

    If you're looking for other things to do that don't necessarily include food, drink and music, New Orleans is famous for its Swamps, Voodoo culture, and is also one of the most haunted cities in America. Look for tours that will get you to famous houses and Voodoo shops; or go on a swamp tour to spot some unique wildlife including alligators.

    You can also take a quick ride on a streetcar, sail on a riverboat, or stroll the French Quarter's historical streets. Bourbon Street is synonymous with partying which doesn't make it any less fun. Try Frenchmen Street to party with the locals. For upscale shopping, try Royal Street. For even more historical buildings, head to St. Charles Avenue.

    In the tourist areas, you're likely to be very safe (give or take the usual minor pick-pocketing and so on you have to watch out for in any town). I do not recommend venturing outside of downtown after dark. New Orleans is a very dangerous place.


LEGAL DRINKING AGE

  • 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 authentic to suit any budget.

5. BUYING & SELLING TICKETS FROM FORUM USERS



Spoiler for Buying & Selling Tickets From Forum Users:
Use this thread to sell or buy any tickets for Wrestlemania 34 weekend. Protect yourself with purchases. Make sure you receive the money before sending out tickets and it's best to use PayPal for money transfers so either side can dispute it if something goes wrong. Most tickets will be instantly transferable through Ticketmaster.



SCAMMERS will be banned as soon as we become aware of them. Also, this thread is to help each other out, so don't post in here if you're trying to profit from other users, use StubHub or something similar.

We’re going back to New Orleans again. You already know what it is!

Re: WrestleMania 34 - The Ultimate Travel Thread V

WrestleMania 30 was one of the best weeks of my life, I filmed my entire week so I could share it with everybody and now seems like a good of a time as any to pull it all out again so folks can see exactly how WrestleMania week works in New Orleans

Everything from flying in/out of New Orleans, taxi service into the city, going to WrestleMania, Raw, Hall of Fame and Axxess. How close everything is, including WrestleCon. Then you've got all the local delights including the incredible Bourbon Street, y'all gunna love it there.

Re: WrestleMania 34 - The Ultimate Travel Thread V

My thoughts...

First, book your hotel in the FQ as soon as they open up for booking. Hotel rates went up with a quickness during 30.

Second, as legendary a 30 was I don't want anybody to get their hopes up. That was the perfect storm of a bunch of elements coming together at the same time. 34 will be awesome but I doubt that it touches that trip.

See y'all there!
