Unhappy Experience in Prometric Center in NYC

My center is in NYC, the one in floor 17 on ONE PENN PLAZA building,
please someone kindly tell me their experience with this center?

I went to get to know the place but they didnt let me in without a reservation (wonder why! its NewYork!!)

so Im concerned cause Ive heard all sorts of things like the center is always PACKED, that you do LINES () when you go to the bathroom or eat something, so Im really worried.

please someone help me out! my test is in 2 weeks!!!

the post made me laugh lol lines to the bathroom seriously dude? penn plaza has like 30 or 40+ floors each floor has like more than 10 bathrooms and the exam floor is dedicated to the exam alone so it will be just you walking around.. good luck and concentrate on ur exam more than these thoughts

Question

hahahaha, oh well, I really meant that you do LINES when you return from the bathroom back into the registration table to enter the lab again (sorry for the confusion )
Im the kind of person that takes breaks between each block so thats why my concern with the "lines" hahaha

thanks for replying! and good luck to you too fredmilky!!!

I hope to be wrong! please anyone that has experience in this bring me some light

Haha Dw I'm the same way! Id look it up too! During step 1, I waited in line for LITERALLY 5 minutes each time (signing in and out) cuz the people were so slow and calm in doing everyone. It was horrible.

Info

So I went to Prometric to do a simulated test today (yes, Im obsessive )
anyways wanted to let know anyone that was wondering about experience
in this prometric that the people are wonderful, everything is very quiet and very respectful people, can eat close to the lockers (which is awesome, couldnt do that in the prometric where I did step1)
it is true that you hear ambulances and sirens a lot, however they are very faint.
there are 2 desks for registration and yes, sometimes people can line up but no more that 2, so average wait would be like half a minute.
