San Diego Comic-Con Has Eliminated the Four-Day Badge and Increased Prices

A sad day has come to Comic-Con fans as the organizers of Comic-Con International, better known as San Diego Comic-Con, have eliminated the event’s four-day badges and increased ticket prices.

According to their official website, those who desire to attend all four days of the extravaganza must purchase individual tickets for each day. When it comes to purchasing the Preview Night, all days must also be purchased. Those who have bought tickets for all days of the event can have them unified at the event.

It doesn’t stop there, for the cost of attendance has increased as well. Single-day badges for adults cost $35 for Preview Night, $45 for Thursday-Saturday badges (up from $42) and $30 for Sunday (up from $24). The cost of attending all four days and Preview Night in 2014 is $200, an increase from last year’s four-day badge plus Preview Night, which cost $175. However, like always, U.S. military, seniors and minors pay a discounted price, and children under the age of 12 can get in free with a paying adult.

The Comic-Con blog also detailed updates to the ticket registration system. On the plus side, under the new system, customers will be able to purchase multiple tickets in one session, there will be a landing page validation to stop non-eligible attendees from jamming up server space and the site will have improved user capacity.

San Diego Comic-Con will take place from July 24-27 this year at the San Diego Convention Center. Details on the new ticketing system is available on their pre-registration website.
