You’d think after last year’s debacle, Niantic would have learned their lesson and not thrown another Pokémon GO Fest where you charge money for thousands of people to come to a low wi-fi area and try to play your game. Clearly not as the company will be throwing a second festival in July, charging $20 a head to get in. Last year the festival was mired with problems that eventually led to people turning on organizers, booing the CEO, and eventually having a winning lawsuit against the company over it. We’d like to think this is Niantic’s attempt to make good with fans by fixing last year’s issues and trying again in the same city, but who honestly knows how it will go. Here are the details of the festival from their website.
Our biggest North American event is back with a brand-new look! Pokémon GO Fest returns to Chicago from July 14 to July 15. Pokémon GO Fest 2018: A Walk in the Park will offer a unique, immersive play experience unseen anywhere else that will create a daylong adventure for Trainers. The event will be held in the city’s historic Lincoln Park, with a 1.8-mile walking course that, among the tree-lined greenery, will include exclusive activities for Trainers of all ages. Single-day passes go on sale on May 11 for $20 on our event website. Also, check the event website for details on hotel accommodations and stay tuned for more details.
