    But I'm a straight male, so that may not answer your question.
    I was going to say something to this effect! The longest lines are those that include the MAN CRUSHES!

    Yup $300 this year. It was listed when I locked in my tickets for next year. I didn't purchase at the time, want to ensure I'll be in town first.

    Fast track lines are just like they are at Disney Land. The VIP ticket holders go in first and have an hour to do their thing. It's not as many people so you can get through lines faster. Then when it opens to all the General Admission ticket holders, you can line up in a separate line at each station that is much shorter and faster. As a GA ticket holder I hated it because it just slowed our line down. Hence why I plan to be that jerk next year.

    I didn't go after we won the Cup so don't know if it was there or if it was more special. I mean, they had done other events and appearances. The whole photo op at LA Live etc. My guess is that most of those who go to Tip a King probably had their picture with the Cup by then.

    You can kinda tell who consistently gets the longest lines by how they lay it out and price it. The guys that are the clear draws given the lay out and lines this time were Drew, Richards, Quick & Kopi
    oh ya, that's right, i forgot about stoll. i think ladies love his body. he's got a nice one, ain't gonna lie, but i don't think his face is that great looking and when i'm looking, i'm looking eeeeeeeverywhere.

    About how many VIP tickets were sold last year or how many VIP tickets were there last year? And for the VIP, I heard that you have front of the line access for 1 or 2 players. I'm not sure if that's true. I went to Tip a King last year and 2 hours is too short. I'm not sure who the right person to talk to about the Tip a King being longer?

    Total event was 3 hours, i was there for 2 without VIP access and got 9 autographs on my sweater - pretty good if you ask me.

    I have no idea how many VIP there are. Overall they seemed to manage the crowd well enough. I mean, towards the end it got silly. I walked up the Toffoli's station, no one in line and they told me lines were being shut down. I can understand them calling a cut off for the longer lines to ensure no one waits around and gets denies. That being said, there wasn't much rational thought when it came to shorter lines. I was 5 feet from TT, could have tossed my jersey to him there was literally no one there with 20 minutes to spare. But no, the line jerk shut me down.

    As for longer... it was held after a game. They'd put in a long day as it was. Who you should talk to ...the players union would be a good place to start.

    Wasn't the price for Hockey Fest only $25-$30? It looks like they just jacked it up by $10-$15 more.

    Gotta cash in on the bandwagoners. Meanwhile, the die-hards suffer.

    While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.

    Whoa times have changed. Haven't been to Tip-a-King since we were in 29th place and last years Meet the Players was a disaster to say the least.

    Back when we sucked, I paid $10 for a bunch of pictures with Frolov's amazing sweater and funny faces. It was a standard $1 for an autograph and $2 for a picture with no problems seeing at least 2/3 of the team. Hockeyfest looks too crowded and unbearable for me to attempt going. MAYBE MTP won't be so bad this year?

    Normally about $250.00 each and you get a Wolf Gang Puck dinner, and drinks usually beer & wine. You get two front of the line passes and all the money goes to Kings Care foundation so it's deductible. First hour is the dinner and perusing the Silent Auction items. Then the players start getting into their positions. Be extremely organized with what you want signed and what pix you want, and you can get it all done in the allotted time. I ended up giving away one of my front of the line passes for the last two years. Well worth the money and less stress. I think they only sell 250-300 tickets to this
