Is Gate 10 24 hour operation during the con? Can you park there Wednesday morning and not leave until Sunday?

Gate 10 will work with you if you want to come in Tuesday. Just call them in advance.
We used Gate 10 and it was great with the shuttles. Bring a bit of cash for tips. I found it was smart to get there early to get the shadiest spots. We had no problem coming and going - looks like they did not over sell. We packed a cooler and came back to our car for lunch, but that actually took quite a bit of time mid-day, so this year we will be bringing our lunches in with a cooler bag so we don't have to go back to car. It WAS hot in August and standing in line for the shuttle was hot. We will bring a little collapsible umbrella next time to use as a parasol. We also had no problem finding Gate 10 4 day passes several weeks after registration.

I wonder why Gate 10 made the decision not to use the GenCon ticking system. It is less convenient. I also wonder what the price will be this year. I am concerned that the price may jump a lot.
We had great experiences with Gate 10. My wife has to use a walker or a wheelchair and they were very helpful. Lots were dusty, but they did their best to keep the shuttles on time. Drivers were always polite.
Having to pick up your parking pass at Will Call and take it back is problematic at best. This system is easier for the customer overall.
Thanks for the info.
Last year we didn't have to pick up anything at Will Call and take it back if you registered early.
We have only had 1 minor issue with Gate 10 parking that was resolved the next year, and that was with their non-shuttle lots that were not described as such and cost the same. Last year they did their shuttle services at a designated spot on the sidewalk so it wasn't really a problem.
We also worry about what is going to happen to the price of a 4 day parking pass. For their currently listed events the parking seems cheaper, but it's not on the same scale as GenCon. I hope their system can handle the rush on tickets as soon as they go up.
