Please Note: We do not issue a refund nor do we allow a transfer of pre-registration once it is purchased. We apologize for any inconvenience.

To pick up your pre-registration, you will need some form of identification. For children still in school, a school ID is sufficient. Please email if your child does not have a form of ID. Our goal is to make sure that we give the proper badge to the proper attendee. Only that person may pickup their own registration matching their ID, no exceptions.

Children’s Passes

Children under the age of 10 are free with the purchase of any adult badge. All children 12 and under MUST be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, no exceptions. For registration pick-up, children should have an ID card (from the DMV, from their school, or a safety-child card with any amount of information as long as there is a picture and full name), or a parent/legal guardian to verify in person. If you don't have access to an ID for your child, you may create your own here that will work for badge pick-up. To see our child attendee policy, click here.
