Doesn't everyone have success in the expensive ticket sale? I seem to remember that they ran out of vehicle passes later in the year.

I couldn't spare losing anymore teeth during the main sale. I Made it by 3 minutes and a new crown for a molar last year. My company bonus covered half the cost so I'll just have to skimp on the fur this year.

I got mine as well today. My first time, so I didn't really know what to expect. But it went very smoothly, and I feel so blessed to be able to afford them. <3

Yes! Congrats to everyone that has secured their ticket for this year. It must be a great feeling to know you don't have to stress and beg. See you in the dust.

Wow, unbelievable . . . missed registering, no warning in Jackrabbit speaks :(

How about opening the sale to anyone with a Burner Profile?

666, I'm sorry. That's a bad beat. I looked it up and they did mention the ticketing for this year back in the December JRS. You would have needed to follow the links to the ticket info page. That's not very obvious to the casual reader. Now that I look at it, there were only a few days to register. I wonder why they don't scream it loud. "BUY THE HIGH PRICED TICKETS". Maybe you should write to the ticketing crew and ask. They won't see your post here.

Oh how I wish I could spare the dough for a presale ticket. Perhaps is the masochist in me... but I actually get a bit of joy out of the stress of general sale day. That's probably because I've always been lucky enough to get a ticket *knock on wood*. Hopefully I can keep that streak alive this year. Hopefully JRS and the powers that be will be casual in the information blasts like they were with the presale & thin the heard a bit.

Sorry to sound like the virgin I am...but I have searched all over and I can't find the answer to this question:
Besides the obvious price difference what is the difference between the two tickets?

Howdy! The bar burned down, as it does annually. Here is the 2017 version:
