Can I stop the car to visit with vendors or get out of my vehicle?You should idle through the event and limit any stopping to just a couple minutes and only if neccessary. Any vendors in which you must pick up items will be placed so you may park on the opposite (west) side of the TMCA building and walk over or have designated stopping spots. There should be NO STOPPING OR PARKING in the drive-thru line. DO NOT GET OUT OF YOUR VEHICLE IN THE DRIVE-THRU! It is a danger to our vendors and preformers and also creates a long wait and other issues.
How long should I expect to wait to enter the event? Or to go through the Drive-thru?This is truly impossible to know. Last event the highest wait time to enter was 40 minutes, others reported waits of less than 15 minutes being the average. Because we can not know or really control this we have taken some precautions to help make the wait less and keep things moving. We believe you can visit and enjoy the drive-thru at a moving but leisurley pace in under 30 minutes. Unfortunately back ups and delays can happen so we ask all guests to keep moving (under 5mph) and to limit stopping when able. And to be very aware of other vehicles and follow the right of way. Hillsborough County Sheriffs will be on site to help direct traffic. We have added special VIP Hours (tickets are available to purchase) and no general admission will be allowed in prior to 12pm or after 3pm. We will have all exhibitors helping to keep things moving by not allowing stopping for extended amounts of time. We will have additional parking on the opposite side of the facility away from the drive-thru should it be neccessary. We stongly suggest you have enough gas and and empty bladders just to be on the safe side!
Can I go inside the YMCA or Use the Pool?The YMCA will be closed to all guests who do not have a VIP Ticket. VIPs will be able to use the pool, splashpad and facilities starting at 11am for Gold VIPs and 3pm for Silver VIPs. All VIP guests must leave the facility by 5pm.
