You can pay your admission online in advance, or in person at the Welcome Center or the lodge door. Event wristbands will be distributed day of: in the Welcome Center from 8am-4pm or at the door from 4pm-8pm. IDs will be checked to verify that you are over the age of 21.

Live music plays from 6:30pm to 10:30pm, with returning band Vinyl Tap. Costumes are encouraged! (Honestly, who doesn’t want to dress up as a pirate?)

*Want to make sure the kiddos are fed before they’re banished belowdecks for the evening? Anyone under 21 can purchase a Dinner Only wristband for $10, which gives access to the dinner buffet in the lodge from 4pm to 6pm. The event and lodge are strictly 21+ only after 6pm.



Race Details

Prizes will be awarded to the top three finishers in both men’s and women’s categories, as well as to the three best costumes we see on course. (Keep the pirate theme in mind, but don’t be afraid to get creative!)

Race registration will close at midnight the night before the race or when all spaces are full, whichever happens first. RACE REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED.

Race Trail: Upper NE Style (B-Line) to Lower Happy Hour. The race trail will be open to the public until the race begins.



About Wings for Life

Wings for Life is a non-profit organization working to find a cure for spinal cord injury. Highland is proud to have partnered with Red Bull and you, our Highland Family, to raise funds to support Wings For Life’s mission for many years’ worth of S’Enders.

In addition to proceeds from S’Ender, as announced at the beginning of the 2021 season we’ll also be donating $1 from every day pass sold on a Wednesday this year to Wings For Life.
