    the lines at the dallas shows have never been really bad. they use a system that does not allow everyone to get in at the same time. this means that not everyone may get to whatever they are trying to get to. there are different levels of tickets you can buy to get in and the general admission ticket holder could miss out but they paid less to get in. i use the speed pass method, which costs more but not as much as the vip pass. the speed pass holders get a wrist band with a number on it (1,2,3,4), group 1 is allowed in to certain areas at certain times, then group 2 and so on. or group 1 is allowed to get in line before group 2. this system seems to work pretty well. if you are in group 3 and they are doing group 1, then you know not to waste your time at that area and you can go do something else. i had read that they were going to use this system at C3, specifically with the gift store, but the only place i saw it used was in the autograph room with the bigger named guests. perhaps at c4
