    They will still have Christmas shows during the day as in the past (confirmed on the Facebook page). I can see why the uproar over it being a separate ticketed event. However, the park normally closed at 6 or 7 in December if I remember correctly (with the exception of New Years Eve). The only real difference I can see to normal daytime operations would be to close perhaps around 5 to get everything ready. I'm guessing they need to see if the event will be profitable and draw a crowd. Perhaps they include it with admission in future years (hopefully). I love the event at SWO and have wanted BGT to get one similar.

    The thing with Seaworld; they generally are busier than BGT in December simply due to the fact of it's location and closer competition, so it makes sense to have it included there. Also, BGW is normally not open in December, and open in the afternoon for this event only.

    Christmas Town tickets will be on sale to passholders at the preview center from Now thru July 17 for $10.

    Normal price is $29.99

    That's a pretty sweet deal. I think I will have to swing by.

    $10 at the park or until the 17th, or while supplies last, Passholders can also buy tickets online for $24.99 (reguarly $39.99) from the mailer I got...
    I will be heading over there tomorrow for a couple of tickets.

    Do you have to pick a date or do they give you a voucher?

    The prices really are not that bad. I'm surprised.

    I think this will be a good event for BGT, but at what cost? Is it just me or has this event taken precedence over Howl-o -Scream? It almost appears like BGT is conceding and going in another direction with their investment dollars. After a record breaking Howl-o-Scream last year it will be interesting to see how things shape up this year with these two events. Will Howl-o-Scream have record crowds again? Will this Christmas event really pay off? I am anxiously awaiting to see how this all plays out.

    Well we all know that Xmas is where the money is at, no need to look further than the store shelves. As soon as the Halloween decorations are on the shelf the Xmas on get unboxxed.
    I don't think it will effect HOS... it is a very poular event and they are far enough apart. They do Christmas shows anyway, SeaWorld does their park up for the season, so this is just progress and more money for the park.

    Yeah, I don't think it is getting any more attention than Howloscream as far as event spending. Howloscream just needs to step it up on its own anyway. Why it seems that way is because this is something BGT has never attempted, and Howloscream already turns a healthy profit from following.

    When Macdonalds gets a new sandwitch they do not need to fit in more ads with the big mac.

    I just hope they Halloween up the preview center during HOS. Some zombie elves meandering around the area or something just for fun.
