Me and my 6 year old son were really excited to be going to Ultra con this year as its the first time we have been to anything like it, we got there at 9.20 am as we knew it might be very busy with people waiting to get in to the venue. There was an amazing array of people dressed up which the time and effort they made was out of this world, they all looked really great, my son wanted picture after picture with all of the guys dressed up, I have to say when we got to near the front of the queue it was just crazy, people queuing all over the place no definitive order or anything, when we actually got into the place it was great lots of room for people to walk round, we had a walk all around the place to see what was going on then a wonder to the food court to plan lunch and the rest of our day, the prices and layout of the food court was just out outrageous, far too expensive but we both needed a drink so had to sort that out, I cannot understand why the places like this do not lower prices and they would sell more, I heard alot of people saying this too 4.70 for a sandwich is disgusting and i was not willing to pay it, when we walked round the second time more and more and more people were there, it was just bedlam, you could not walk round, you shuffled round, it was like we were packed in there like sardines! We left at 1.30 pm as we could not stand it any longer, it was a ticketed event and in my opinion too many tickets were sold, we left hungry and disappointed that it was too crammed to see anything and felt as though we would pass out as it was so hot with all the people. I am glad we went in one way as we can say we saw the event but we will not be returning again as it its just too crazy and crammed.

Good event, only two complaints
1. Slow getting in, we queued for about 40 mins with our e-tickets from 10am - More event staff needed to get people in ?
2. "The Stig" - What were the organisers thinking in getting 'The Stig' on stage ? He has absolutely no place at UltraCon, if people want to geek out for him they need to go to a Top Gear event not UltraCon

We had a lovely family day! It was out little ones first Comicon (2 years old) and won't be his last! Everyone was so friendly. A MASSIVE thanks to everyone who made a fuss of our little one. He loved it which made it a lot easier for mummy and daddy to enjoy there day! Venue was well set up, there were lots off different attractions and the stalls were all very helpful. The food court could have done with someone directing traffic, but other than that was an awesome day! Can't waiting till next years!

My young Son and I attended, and to be honest we were slightly underwhelmed.

We had been around the entire event Three times in less than Two hours and as such I feel it was very poor value for money.

We got a couple of good photos, taken on my smartphone, with some of the Cosplayers, but again the organised photo opportunities were very expensive and poor value for money.

He purchased a couple of 'Custom' Lego mini-figures, but yet again the majority of the merchandise was overpriced and readily available online from sites such as eBay without the ridiculous mark up put on by the vendors (100% price increase being a perfect example)

Unfortunately, we WON'T be attending any future Ultracon events at this venue or any other.

Sadly I thought the event was poorly organised, we booked online to get in an hour early but the huge queues and the tiny size of the venue meant we did not actually get into the event until almost an hour after our entry time. Once we finally got into the event it was apparent that for the number of visitors it was far to small, I also expected it to be a great deal larger with much more to offer which sadly it did not. We were all done after the first 2 hours.

Review of Ultra Con 2016

i bought a family ticket, I queued up with my family for the millennium falcon and was told we could not enter as we did not have tickets to get on board,when i asked how to get them the staff you employed where non informative of how to help me after asking 5 people when i eventually found someone he said no sorry can't help you, to get on it should have stated it was a ticket attraction. I never got an option to purchase the said tickets at the time of purchase of family ticket. Also the request for further money to enter cars was wrong, the stalls near the entrance and exit in wrong place as it caused congestion try to get in /out. The food court was as shambolic we stood in line for pizza with others when we got to the counter they said they are not being served till 12 again how was supposed to know as no indication was given, so stood in line for pie n mash i asked the lad what was in the pie and he shrugged his shoulders said don't know (as you imagine i had two little boys ) so i said what is it jokingly 'dog' again he said don't know . when i found out we ordered sausage n mash x1 and pie n mash x3 at 7.20 per meal and bottle 3x fanta at 2.40 (rip off) not happy.
Yes the boys had fun other than the above issues as i am dad who makes the best of poor occasion, would i attend again no don't think so we travelled 1hr 45 each way and the event could be better organised.
review below on music don'y recall it sorry.
