Q. What if I receive the following prompt: "You must allow your browser to share you location to purchase tickets, please click "OK" to reload this page, then be sure to allow your browser to share your location to share your location when prompted"?
The browser should reload the page and ask you to share location upon loading. Note: In some browsers, the popup may say "close" instead of "OK"
