For example, a family with two riders, who purchased a first quarter pass for $125 can pay $225 more prior to Oct. 1 to upgrade to the annual pass. A family purchasing a one rider pass for $75 for the first quarter can pay the additional $125 by Oct. 1 to upgrade to an annual pass. This upgrade option allows families to spread the cost of an annual pass our over two payments, and save money overall compared to purchasing four quarterly passes during the year.
