    Haven't had the chance to go before....does the pass just get you in for those days, or does it allow you to see all the shows too? Do you have to pre-book for the shows or can you just turn up???? Not sure how it works.:confused:

    If you have a super ticket which is the price I quoted it gets you into everything and has your reserved seating on it, once you pay the one off fee that's it and you see everything.
