When do they shut the Gate....is it Saturday, or Friday at Midnight?

I remember Eric checking with Gate and they do not close other than weather and safety related closures.

A couple years ago some friends arrived on Thursday evening, they were told that the event was at capacity and had to wait around until Friday mid-morning after enough people had left for the gates to open again. Be prepared for that possibility if arriving late in the week. YMMV
