Ticketing Details for 2019

Wristbands - Photo: SkennedyYour Lakes of Fire ticketing team is pleased to announce that ticket sales and lottery registration will begin in January 2019!  We will be using a new ticketing provider (BurnerTickets.com), and we will provide additional details closer to the start of volunteer sales and lottery registration.

Volunteer ticket sales are expected to begin on January 19 and must be purchased by February 23.  Please see our Volunteer Ticketing page for more information!

Registration for the ticket lottery is expected to begin on February 2, 2019, and to remain open until February 23, 2019 (at 23:59:59 central time).  The lottery will include a “grouping” feature to allow families, theme camps, etc. to enter the lottery together.

Lottery ticket offers and Directed Ticket sales (see below) are expected to start on March 2, 2019.  The purchase window for lottery ticket offers will be significantly shorter this year – recipients will have three (3) days after receiving an offer to purchase a ticket, rather than one week.  We expect that this will speed up the lottery process significantly.

Regular price tickets will be $116 and half-price tickets will be $58 including all fees.  Once sold, tickets will generally be non-refundable but now are transferable.  Because tickets will not be constantly returned to Lakes of Fire, a separate Fire Sale for 2019 is unlikely.

Please see our Ticketing Process page for more details, and sign up for news via our Lakes Letter (if you aren’t already) so you don’t miss further announcements!

Apply for Theme Camp tickets

Circulation Desk in tentDirected Tickets for theme camps will return to Lakes of Fire in 2019!  We will again offer 10% of total available tickets but this year we are including smaller theme camps.  If you need tickets to support a quality project, we want you to apply!

In a change from 2018, theme camp applications for directed tickets must be submitted before the ticket lottery.  

Submit your creative inspirations for the most amazing, spookiest, strangest, and coolest theme camp Lakes of Fire has ever seen by filling out the Directed Theme Camp Ticket application by Sunday, February 23 (at 23:59:59 central time).

Additionally, we are accepting applications for community members to join the DTC jury – if you’d like to help, please apply by Sunday, January 20th!
