Re: WrestleMania 35 - The Ultimate Travel Thread VI

FIRST PAGE!

I'm excited to go to NYC again, I went for the first time for Raw 25 and was only there for less than 48 hours, hopefully the Yankees will be in town as their season will start about a week prior to Mania. Finish the other touristy shit I need to do, but some thoughts regarding some info about going to NYC etc

Staying by Times Square for Raw 25 after flying into Newark. Man NYC has the mass transit thing figured out. Took a train straight to the 9/11 Museum *EVERYONE HAS TO GO SEE THIS, IT"S AMAZING IF YOU REMEMBER THIS HAPPENING* and make SURE you pay extra for the guided tour, it's SO worth the extra 20 bucks. The guy provides context to everything making it 100x better. Anyway. We walked and took a train everywhere. Walked 21 miles in <48 hours, mass transit is so cheap too. NJ Transit train was quickish and cheap from NJ/Newark, but I dont want to get a hotel there because *only* Mania is over there, everything else is a long way away at Barclays. Google Maps says it will take 90 mins on mass transit from one place to another, so I'm probably gonna stay in NYC.

View from the "Top of the Rock" at the Rockefeller center was great. Better than the top of the Empire State Building imo and less lines. Do touristy shit on like a Thursday/Tuesday if you can. I went on Tuesday after Raw 25 and there was literally zero waiting to do anything. Online I read sometimes the wait times for ESB etc are awful.

I've read that if you want to go to/up in the Statue of Liberty you need to book tix like 6 months in advance and it will eat up half of a day to go do/see.

Do not even think about renting a car, people drive like maniacs in NYC and they use a horn to say hello and you hear them every 30 seconds. When walking you ignore the walk/dont walk signs and just always keep walking. Use Google Maps to tell you how to use/where to go to use mass transit. Had no idea how/where and it told me where to walk to the subway station, what train to catch etc. Probably want to get a week long mass transit card if they have one.

Nintendo store was cool if you like video games, Times Square is cool.


Go to the basement of the Plaza hotel (where Home Alone 2 was filmed partially) and get some cake from Lady M. Little Home Alone "room" too with a photo booth thats themed. It's right across from Central Park. I've heard the food truck section on 56th? and ? are great.

I'm also calling Rhonda vs Asuka

It's SUPER easy. It's NYC, there's always trains <img src="https://www.wrestlingforum.com/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /> Especially from Barclays, the subway station is literally right across from the arena.


I mentioned the location to my Mum, and she got excited. I think she wants to go <img src="http://i.imgur.com/NCRsZl9.png" border="0" alt="" title="" class="inlineimg" />

If we go, this'll be my fourth time going to NYC and my third WWE weekend there after Mania 29 and Summerslam 2016 (I also went in 2014 as well). My first Mania was in NYC/NJ, so it's like coming full circle.
Ah brilliant, thanks! I only just found out NYC has the only 24 hour subway in the world. Perfect. I’m hoping to stay somewhere around Brooklyn, went to NYC three years ago on holiday and always planned to go back.

Re: WrestleMania 35 - The Ultimate Travel Thread VI

Itís been a while since Iíve been to New York can any one recommend a good hotel around midtown and how long would it take to get back to that area on the train after mania.

Thanks

Re: WrestleMania 35 - The Ultimate Travel Thread VI

If my trip to The Rumble falls through then i'll consider going to 35, i'm not keen on sitting outside in the cold for 8 hours.

Re: WrestleMania 35 - The Ultimate Travel Thread VI

I wonder where they'll host Axxess. Is there anywhere near Barclays it could go? I know there's the Javits Center in Manhattan which is only a subway, away but that's booked for some car show.

Surely they wouldn't stick it in New Jersey when most of their events are at Barclays? Wish they'd let us know

Also, use your discounts through AAA, military, etc. My AAA discount looks to be shaving off $15-20 per night, which racks up to about $100 savings for the whole stay.
90% of the hotels haven't even allowed you to book.

New York City has just as many hotels as Orlando. And I don't think that number includes all the places in New Jersey. It's New York City so they're expensive but I don't think it's going to be particularly difficult to find a room.

Still wondering where they're going to do Axxess but got a hotel room locked down in NJ looking over the Hudson. Seems like PATH is a good way for getting around.

Going to wait a few weeks and then check again for hotels in Brooklyn since that's where most of the shows will be, but travelling in and out won't be a big deal. Half hour trip in the morning to Brooklyn/half hour back end of the night won't be the end of the world. Especially when PATH seems like such a cheap option at $2 single trip - or an unlimited card for the week.
I'm skeptical on your travel estimate. I don't see how you're getting to New Jersey to Brooklyn in a half hour.

If you plan on just doing the WWE stuff don't stay in New Jersey. Find a place in the city and stay there.

If there's indie stuff that gets announced in New Jersey and you want to spend most of your time there then stay in New Jersey.

Wasn't really meant as an exact figure. I've got something prebooked in NJ anyway and got something in Brooklyn near Barclays this morning so we'll see where other stuff is going to be (Axxess and indie shows etc)

Re: WrestleMania 35 - The Ultimate Travel Thread VI

I wasn't planning on doing this trip, but then for some reason I found myself looking at hotels and I've booked one!

Another one for the good guys!

There's gonna be pillers for WrestleMania next year as it's an outdoor stadium. Anyone who did a travel package for WM29 what was your view like with the pillers? Surely next years one won't be as big as the ones 5 years ago.
