Crowds Gather At Metro Centre , Gateshead For iPhone 5 Launch

Crowds Gather At Metro Centre , Gateshead For iPhone 5 Launch

So we have just got back from an extremely tiring experience which was in fact the iPhone 5 launch. We traveled to our closest Apple store ( Metro Centre , Gateshead)

Plan was to meet up at 4am but after we got some reports suggesting that crowds were already gathering we decided to set of a little early and we were in line by 1am at this point we were last in the 8 long queue. The queue soon started to take shape around 3am with around 200 people in line. It was raining and had dropped to 9 degrees so it was getting a little chilly. To keep us awake we had a guy who was obsessed with dead pixels playing some music off his iPad.

5am on the dot they eventually let us in to the Metro Centre and that is when the queues decided to grow at a considerable rate. We decided to pass time with a couple of card games and sharing magic tricks.

Once inside the Metro centre everyone was giving the famous Apple tickets and also a free bottle of water , Starbucks tea or coffee and a Krispy Kreme which kept us awake until 8am which was the release time.

It was a great overall experience for us and we had some great conversations and met some big “Fan Boys” , We would also like to thank you all for your feedback over twitter , Try and spot yourself in the image below.iPhone 5 Launch , Metro Centre , Gateshead / Newcastle , UK
