Gold Bat Pass Conditions

Gold Bat Passes available for weekend purchase only.

To enjoy priority access to panels and presentations Gold Bat passholders must (should) arrive for panels and presentations at least 15 minutes before the start time when they will be allowed in ahead of general admission passholders. After this time Gold Bat passholders will be allowed to bypass the line and take a seat for the panel or presentation on a first come, first served basis.

Individual attractions set their own policies and processes on how to honor Gold Bat passholders – if no sign is displayed for a separate line, proceed to the front of the line to notify the attraction manager that you are a Gold Bat passholder.

Gold Bat perks, including priority access, are non-transferable and limited to individual passholders. Perks can not be extended to general admission or other guests of the Gold Bat, including children.
