Survival Tips From Our Veterans

  • Comfortable shoes are critical, as you'll be doing a LOT of walking around.
  • Drink (bring) plenty of water, hand sanitiser, portable phone charger and snacks!
  • Prioritise what you want to do/see/buy - you likely won't get to do everything you want, even in 3 days!
  • If you want a photo with someone, ask them if it's okay first!
  • Don't be afraid to talk to people in queues, they are people just like you! or bring queue-friendly games! From handheld consoles to card games to play with friends - we see it all at PAX.
  • Be kind to everyone around you. If you need a hand finding people, locations or things, keep an eye out for your local Enforcer - the super helpful, friendly folks in the yellow PAX shirts.
