A Pit Pass Upgrade is the process of adding a pit pass to a previously purchased ticket. This can be done for all of the October 19-21 event days.
All ADULT pit pass upgrades must be performed at the Upgrade Station located outside of turn 4, near Gate 3. You must have a valid ticket for each day you want to upgrade; meaning if you come on Thursday and want to upgrade to a 3-day pit pass, you will need your Thursday, Friday, & Saturday ticket in hand to do so.

Thursday – Saturday: 1pm – Feature Event
Minimum age in the pit area is 14. Ages 14-17 require parental consent waivers to be signed.

When upgrading a reserved seat ticket – you still retain the reserved seat location.
Regular full price pit passes are available at any ticket window around the track.
MINOR PIT PASSES:
All MINOR pit passes and MINOR pit pass upgrades must be processed at Gate 4. Minor waivers will not be accepted at any other ticket office or ticket window on property.
Eldora officials have updated the procedure for grass hillside markings in an effort to create a safer entry process for fans due to the high demand for General Admission seating.
On Thursday, October 19, admission gates will open at 12:00 pm. Eldora staff members will walk each line into the facility in a 𝙨𝙖𝙛𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙤𝙧𝙙𝙚𝙧𝙡𝙮 fashion. Lines will be walked to each respective holding area (see map below). Once all fans have safely moved inside the facility, the Eldora staff members will simultaneously release each line to begin placing chairs on the hillsides. Fans are encouraged to use the attached map to ensure they end up in the area they want to place chairs. Tickets will not be needed to enter the facility at 12 pm.
Gates will then close at 1:00 pm on Thursday for a complete sweep of the facility. All fans inside at that time will be asked to proceed outside the gates. Grand opening of all gates is scheduled for 2 pm. Chairs may continue to be placed on the hillsides once gates are reopened. Just make sure you have your ticket at that point!
* Fans lined up at the main gate will have the option to proceed to the holding areas at either end of the grandstands once the doors open.
* South end campers will be lined up between sections SI and SJ.
* When placing chairs, absolutely no stakes in the ground. No rocks. No spray paint. It is recommended that you mark your spot by tying caution tape to your chairs.
* Only mark off space equal to the number of people in your party. If there are large unused sections in your area, our ushers may start filling it with guests who need space to sit.
* Once placed, chairs may be left in place from day to day. Chair owner assumes all responsibility of chairs left on the hill.
