    How long did you have to wait in the queue? I got on at 10:30 out of curiosity and all 3 games were completely gone with maybe the exception of small numbers of single tickets.

    It was about 10:15 when I finally got to the front of the queue. I had logged in around 9:30 and was 2000th in line when the queue opened at 10.

    My boss just told me that there's a ton of resale tickets available.

    I remember when they started using it I was like "Is that the Airwolf theme?" son I pulled it up on my phone and I was "that seems pretty random".

    Hi! Dont know better place to ask these things, if they dont belong here, moderators delete this message.

    Next season trying to make a dream come true and planning a trip to the Columbus and of course see game in Nationwide. How much tickets cost for a decent place? Google is a friend but its giving pretty much different prices. Easyest ways to move around the city? Good hotels near the Nationwide or is it better to use airbnb? Weather in Columbus at winter? Any tips are welcome. Thanks!

    Very excited for you. It's great that Columbus can be a destination for hockey fans. I'm not sure of how much time you are spending here, but I would consider renting a car at least a day or so. It's easier to explore the city like going up to the Zoo, or Easton Mall/Polaris Mall areas or OSU campus. Some fun 1/2 day trips include the Air Force Museum in Dayton and the Hocking Hills area. If you don't rent a car, you can easily take Uber or Shuttle from the airport to downtown and there is a free Bus that circulates the downtown area to get between German Village up to Short North areas (lots of different food, bars/pubs, brewpubs, restaurants along the route). Weather depends on when you are coming. October should have some great Fall weather (jacket weather), November-February generally gets cold and gray, March starts to warm up again.

    Hotels around Arena district usually start around $150US per night including taxes and go up from there. You can usually find decent hotel rooms closer to airport or up north at the Polaris Mall area for under $100. I don't know what B&B options there are in Columbus, but I've had good experiences in other cities/countries.

    Game tickets should cost around $110 for Lower Level Seats and around $60 for upper level Center Ice. I think the cheapest seats are around $35 upper level behind goals. The prices may adjust a little up or down depending on if it is a weekend game vs weeknight game or if it's versus a popular opponent like Chicago or Pittsburgh.

    Here's information on the Free Columbus Bus Circular (again, it covers the popular downtown areas like German Village/Brewery District, Arena District, Short North): CBUS – COTA

    Columbus zoo: Columbus Zoo and Aquarium - Home
    Easton Mall: Easton | Shopping, Dining, Living, Entertainment | Columbus, OH
    German Village Society - 588 S 3rd St, Columbus, OH 43215

    It depends how i get my workschedule arrange. Maybe next autumn or winter or spring. Its easy to fly here to NY or FLA but continuationflight is one of question still. Is it better option or should rent a car or take bus. Soooooo much planning and counting before a trip. Need much savings cause flights here to USA costs around 500-1000€ for oneway and flightime are f***ing long. + Want to take family with me so i can brainwash son to be Jackets fan before someone asswhip neighbour kid talks too much for Crosby or McDavid. :skeptic::)

    There are new buildings and homes going up all over town and our official "flower" is the orange barrel signaling road work. Construction work would be easy to come by if you wanted it.

    Had lunch with Bjorky Today. Sure we were in separate booths, but we were both in the same restaurant...

    I did have to say hey to him, I apologized for bugging him and told him I was a huge fan and good luck. He said thanks.

    Normally i'm pretty face blind, but his smile in person is just like it is on TV.

    We're bff's now. 20190423_135256.jpg

    Unofrtunately the schedule will not work for a trip over from Indy. My son is helping coach high school baseball this year and they have a game on all the possible home game nights. We were really hoping for Game 6 to be on Sunday.

    Just means we have more money to spend on conference finals tickets :)

    Did he pick up your check? Probably not. Rumor is he avoids making checks.
