This will be my first roo...I've heard horror stories about this from earlier years, but also that it's getting better: how long should we expect to wait to get into the grounds? I think we'll reach the Manchester area around Thursday at midnight.
I havent had that much of a problem in the past years. I have arrived around noon on thursday each time and have maybe an hour or so wait at most and had pretty solid camping spots also. Thursday around midnight is a bit late for me but if thats all you can pull off, hey do it up and have a blast!

Last year on thurday we entered centeroo fairlt quickly about a 5 minute wait...that was around 7 or 8pm. we LEFT centeroo around 12 or 1 am to rest up for the weekend and the line to get it was freakin' INSANE! the wait must have been like half an hour. it was so packed that we didn't see anyone walking out the time we were leaving and thought "where the hell is the exit?" the guy says this IS the exit and it took us longer to squeeze throught the mob to get out than it did to get in! LOL. Thursday night seems to be the worst. come early.
The nightmarish waiting times are pretty much a thing of the past and the only real clogs are going to come on Friday morning. From all accounts though, the bad pockets of waiting are few and far between. I really wouldn't worry too much about it brother.

In 2004 we arrived at like 8am on Friday morning and didn't get in to our spot until about 2-3 in the afternoon, it was horrific. Anyone who was in that Friday afternoon traffic knows what I'm talking about, I was so fumed. I missed SCI and Dylan, man.

can you enter the fest at any time? i just discovered a setback, and instead of arriving thursday morning, we cannot make it until thursday around 11 pm. i know this will be horrible for setting up, but im dying to see toubab, so the gates are open 24/7? if so, im sure the traffic that late will not be a problem.
ya once they open the gates they stay open. i doubt you will have much of a wait at that time. the best time to get in line on 24 is around 4-8 int he morning on thursday. we waited like2 hours. maybe 3 but we had a 3 minute walk to centeroo. we could see the top of the mainstage from camp
