What Time Should I Get There?


We suggest an early arrival. Would you rather get inside too early, or get inside too late and miss the opporunity to enter the Costume Contest  etc...? Gates open at 6pm, and we expect a heavy rush from 8-11.

We will be doing everything we can to minimize wait times in line, including the ability to upgrade on site to Express Entrance for an additional $20.

What Is The Express Entrance?


Express Entrance has a line at the entrance dedicated to only Express Entrance buyers, so your wait will be minimized in line. We limit the number of Express Entrance tickets sold and expect to get Express Entrance buyers in 5+ times faster than General Admission buyers.
