Minecraft meet-up in Peterborough described as "awful"
14 September 2015
Angry parents of Minecraft gamers have taken to social media to voice their displeasure about "awful" queues and a lack of things to do at the unofficial convention.
On Saturday, around 4,100 people were at MineVention at Peterborough Arena to meet stars and play games.
However, many claimed to have waited for hours to meet idols or eat meals and demanded refunds.
Organiser Lisa O'Brien said the queues were long and she'll issue a statement on refunds in the near future.
The event is not associated with Minecraft developer Mojang and was started in Ireland. It was the first time it had been held in the UK.
It gave fans of the worldwide gaming smash Minecraft where players create a host of objects using cubic blocks - the opportunity to meet famous "Youtubers" and get photos and play games.
The event, starring the TV's Gadget Show presenter Jason Bradbury as well as a call to fans to dress up as Steve from the game Steve to attempt to break a world record.
However, it was later under criticism on social media with people complaining of long queues and the lack of food and merchandise stalls, and activities for fans.
Vicky Abraham shared on Facebook that she waited with her five-year-old son for over an hour and only 30 seconds on a computer.
Another parent said she had to wait 45 minutes for an empty water bottle and that the whole experience was "appalling" with nothing to do. Another parent called the BBC to report that they had left after half an hours because of the long lines and that her son was "crying throughout the journey home".
Some people shared on Facebook that they were satisfied with the event, with one of them wrote: "I thought your event was fantastic for PS15."
Lisa O'Brien of O'Brien Event Management said she felt with parents because we all have children. She said the queues were over 45 minutes due to a large amount of people who turned up on the day instead of purchasing tickets in advance.
She claimed that the convention was the first time it was done on this scale before, and that some official merchandise was not delivered in time for the event.
She added that organizers had "taken into consideration all suggestions, comments and suggestions" and that they would be meeting to fix any problems. A further statement would be released on Monday evening.
