Tickets will be available online starting at 9 a.m. Wednesday for January, February and March. 

On Monday the online ticket system showed passes for October, November, and December - which had already been sold out - instead of January, February, and March.

Because of that mishap, 64,000 passes were given out for the wrong dates.

Passes will be available at or call (866) 297-4020. For more information about these passes, visit
