What’s a Speed Pass and Why Should I Get One?

by | Oct 17, 2018

If you haven’t been to Denver Pop Culture Con (DPCC) before, you may be wondering what a “Speed Pass” is and what it gets you for the higher price. Below is a rundown of the big extras you receive as a Speed Pass holder.

Please remember that Speed Passes have consistently sold out before all other DPCC badge types every year they’ve been offered — and it usually happens quickly.

If you are considering a Speed Pass this year, watch the Ticketing page carefully and buy as early as you can. We’ll also announce when badges of any type are getting close to sold out on our social channels, so be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Now, on to the goodies. In addition to all of the amazing attractions and activities the convention has to offer, as a Speed Pass holder you also get…

Your Own Dedicated Con Entrance and First Entry
Speed Pass holders will be able to utilize a dedicated Speed Pass entrance into the convention center, which usually means almost no waiting in the entry lines, other than what is required for bag and prop checks.

First Entry to the Main Show Floor
Speed Pass holders get first entry into the show floor each day, which means you get a head-start in attending the really popular panels, buying rare items in Merchant Mesa, getting a much better spot in line for just about anything, and much more — not to mention just generally enjoying the main show floor when it’s much less crowded.

Dedicated, First Entry into Captain Colorado and Night Lynx stages
The Captain Colorado and Night Lynx stages host the biggest, most popular celebrity Q&A sessions and other events, and space is limited. Typically, these events have the longest lines, and require attendees to get in line far in advance in order to have a chance of getting in.

As a Speed Pass holder, you’ll have a dedicated line for these events and you’ll be ushered in prior to everyone else. Many of our past Speed Pass attendees have told us this is their favorite benefit.

Dedicated, First-Served Lines in Celebrity Summit
Celebrity Summit is where you can meet the biggest film, TV and streaming celebrities and it’s one of the most popular attractions at the convention. As such, the lines to get autographs from your favorites can normally be VERY long.

As a Speed Pass holder you bypass the normal lines and go straight to the front, which usually means almost no wait times and you have a much higher chance of getting that special autograph you had your heart set on. Please keep in mind the Speed Pass is not available to use for the photo op lines.

Exclusive 2019 DPCC Merchandise
Every Speed Pass holder will receive official 2019 DPCC merch, so you don’t have to worry about them selling out and you can conveniently pick them up from the main DPCC merchandise (aka “merch”) booth the moment you arrive on the main show floor (which you get into first). Please keep in mind there are pick up hours.

See you at the con!
