I dont know if the sentence below is a Comma Splice, Run-on, Dangling Modifier or a Misplaced Modifier?How to correct it?

I think it works as two sentences. Lines for Star Wars Tickets ran around the block. Some people had even set up tents.

Like others are saying, the biggest problem is a run-on sentence.  If you want to keep it as one, you might say:

 

Since the line for Star Wars tickets ran around the block, some had to set up tents.

 

Or shorter and no punctuation:

The line for Star Wars tickets was so long that some had to set up tents.
