Registration and Ticket Details
It’s time to register for your ticket to Lakes of Fire 2018: Bedtime Stories!
There are 2200 total tickets this year – in order to get one, you MUST register, whether you qualify for a Volunteer Appreciation ticket or not.
Registration is now open, and will continue until Feb 23 at 11:59 pm; shortly after that (February 26th), people will be randomly chosen and emailed a ticket offer for 2018. Registration opens again afterward, and anyone who did not register before the drawing will be placed at the end of the waitlist.
Those who volunteered for 8 or more hours in 2017 do not have to wait for the drawing to buy a ticket in 2018. Volunteer appreciation email notifications and volunteer ticket sales will begin on Monday Jan 29th, and close on Feb 23rd.
Volunteer emails will take a couple days to go out to everyone – please be patient! You can contact the Volunteer Team if you are expecting a volunteer email and do not receive it before Feb 7th.
This timeline gives everyone over three weeks to register before the drawing, and 3 weeks to purchase volunteer appreciation tickets if that applies to you.
You may create or join a group, like last year, in order to be placed consecutively in the registration system with others – this way you are more likely to either be offered or not offered a ticket along with your family. The group’s maximum size is 50 this year.
Note: grouping does NOT change your odds of getting a ticket.
We’ve held a Fire Sale in past years to sell the last remaining tickets; depending on how the line moves, we may or may not do it again this year.
In 2017, everyone who registered before the drawing was eventually offered a ticket – while we can’t promise anything for this year, we encourage you to not stress if you are not chosen in the first round of offers, and to plan to attend if you register early.
