~Burton’s Ball — QUESTIONS & ANSWERS~

What is Burton Ball Nights?
For nearly a decade now, the annual Burton Ball has celebrated all things Tim Burton and has morphed into one of the most highly anticipated events of the Halloween season. This year, Burton Ball Nights is a walk-thru haunting experience complete with spooky holiday lights, character driven displays from Burton classic films, local artist murals and more.

What’s a carload ticket?
The ticket covers everyone in your vehicle coming into the event. You may also purchase VIP Packages with limited edition merchandise in advance which you pick up curbside at the end of your drive-thru experience.

Do I need to buy my tickets in advance?
To secure your spot on the night you choose to attend, it’s highly encouraged but not required. However, we will limit capacity each evening due to time constraints.

When is pick-up for my tickets if I chose that option?
Pick-up will be in line at the toll booth of the South Entrance on the night in which you choose to attend. You will be checked in as you arrive.

When will my tickets arrive if I choose the delivery option?
All presale tickets who chose delivery will be mailed out beginning September 25th.

Is this kid friendly?
If your family loves Halloween, this is for you. Some elements will be a bit spooky, but there will be no gore, blood or scare elements. Best advice, if they love the movies, they’ll enjoy this event.

Can we come more than once?
Each night and drive-thru will require a ticket to go through but you’re more than welcome to bring friends back throughout the month.

Will there be vendors?
Yes, Burton Ball vendors will line the haunt for your shopping fun.
