Show special!
A 5-day pass with unlimited reentry for all five days costs $22 but you'll need to follow this (admittedly) clunky process. This option is valid until 5 days before show time. After that we'll be too busy to process any more requests.

1. Log in to your PayPal account (or create one at www.PayPal.com) and send a payment of $22 per ticket, in one transaction, to our account at Payment@EonsExpos.com
2. Forward your PayPal confirmation email to MissyScarlett@EonsExpos.com along with a clear, well-lit head & shoulders photo + full name of each person for whom you've paid for a pass.
3. Pick up your Photo ID / Pass at the 'Advance Tickets' booth when you arrive at the show.

Ticket price includes the special exhibit, dinosaurs, demonstrations, children's activities, and for the kids: a fossil fish from the NJ and NY paleontology clubs and a dinosaur bone specimen from Dinosaurs Rock.
