Know Before You Go

Comicpalooza is a big show and there’s lots to do. If you’re new to it all, it may be overwhelming and we can help ease any concerns. We’ve put a lot of thought into how to make the show easy to navigate, and we’re making improvements each year. Below is some helpful information to get you started.

What's Available 

 

The Insider Network is new this year and was created to reward our loyal fans. Get early access to information and benefit from special offers unique to Insiders. Insiders will receive emails leading up to the event sharing information and opportunities before the public, like buying Speed Passes before they run out---remember the Nightmare on Elm Street Speed Pass last year?

Currently, Comicpalooza has three different types of tickets: General Admission, Speed Passes, and VIP. Ticket price increases are announced at different times leading up to the show. Buy early and save! For additional savings, read about our Insider’s Network above.

General Admission gets you access to every part of the public event including the exhibit hall for shopping, exhibits, and celebrity photo and autograph opportunities, the celebrity panels held on the third floor, gaming tournaments, the film festival, the literary festival, kids areas, shows, and on and on. Special events may cost extra but will always be clearly marked. Attendees can choose from a 3-day pass or purchase individual day passes.

Speed Passes are 3-day passes that provide all of the same benefits as General Admission, however, they are tied to a celebrity guest or guests. They cost more but buyers gain 30-minute early access to the Exhibit Hall and have priority line access to the celebrity guest(s) panels, autograph and photograph opportunities associated with the pass. They will be announced throughout the season along with the celebrity guest(s). If you buy a general admission ticket today, you can upgrade later to a Speed Pass as they are announced.

VIP Passes provide all of the same privileges as a Speed Pass but for all celebrities. In addition, buyers receive a swag bag of goodies and have a shorter VIP line for check in. A VIP pass lets you do more in less time. Upgrades to VIP are available from General Admission and Speed Passes.

Photographs and Autographs are not included in the price of your passes. Costs associated with them and schedules for obtaining these opportunities will be published closer to the event. There are a limited number available. Don’t miss this opportunity to see your favorite celebrity in person, get a photo taken or a collectible signed.

Activities:

As the event gets closer we will announce our schedule of events but you don’t have to wait until then to learn about all that Comicpalooza has. Click here to find out more.
