Any way, in my experience, the algorithm favors new accounts or gives them more weight during the confirm/deny portion of the ticket process. When it comes to night 1 of a two night stand, or seniority night, that is when an accounts seniority has influence, but only on seat location, post-confirm/deny process.

    Agree, the algorithm does not favor new accounts. New accounts have the same chance to win or lose, so sometimes they win.

    With regard to the Gideon, they have a shuttle that takes you into the town, and it picks you up when you call for the return ride. You can enjoy the village, and walk to and from the show. Best of both worlds. It also has an on-site restaurant and bar. That said, if you wanted to hang out in the village after the show, then staying in town is probably a better choice as the shuttle does have limited hours.

    So you disagree with what I was saying?

    I think it does favor younger accounts in the confirm/deny process.

    I mean, I get it. If you're the band, wouldn't you want your new fan club members to be confirmed for the best tickets to create incredible experiences and memories at their first few shows, and hook them for good? It worked on me! Imagine signing up for a WH account as a newbie, requesting tickets, then seeing nothing but denied, denied, denied. I'd be annoyed!

    Strategic question : we are a group of 8. We’ve been doing lawn at SPAC for the past 10+ years. The best way to get «*inside*» would be via Warehouse. But it will be impossible tonget 8 tickets side bu side, right !

    8 years of looking at a wall and being crammed?


    Probably just about impossible, I usually go with a big group that splits up for the show in seats

    Your best chances are the lowest number of people together, through the Warehouse

    Its not impossible - while it was luck of the draw I ended up with a lowers both nights last year, my pair next to 4 friends each night which was fantastic. I still have pinch marks on my ass for proof IKYKY

    Here's really your only chances - get 4 pairs and choose the crappiest pair you have to keep, then trade the better pairs. I guarantee you will have a handful of people that have seats next to your crappy pair that way you can all be within the same vicinity of each other. SPAC is small, you'd be surprised what you can manipulate if you are willing to give up the better seats.

    - Holiday Inn
    - Embassy Suites
    - Hilton Garden Inn - currently sold out, but right outside the park
    - Homewood Suites - newest hotel in the area and right across the street from the park, but farthest from downtown
    - Saratoga Casino Hotel - also pretty far from town, but just a little past the Homewood suites if walking from the park
    - Some other motels/B&B type places are also in this range if you look around

    There are a few more options in the 3-3.5 mile range that will get you right into the center of town
    If i may add, the Saratoga Hilton (north part of downtown/broadway) is also a great spot to be. Not exactly walking distance to the venue but definitely walking distance to any shop/bar/restaurant you may end up

    Data point to those walking from to/from downtown and the venue - it’s not terrible by any means but I personally thought it was a bit of a hike. I made the first trek mid day when it was hot out so maybe that’s why. I personally wouldn’t do it again unless I had to.
