Average cost of PAX attendance?
I've been thinking about doing PAX for years now and last year I decided that I may finally save up for it. Basically what happened is that I was in the area for a cruise to Alaska around the time of PAX West (unfortunately my schedule didn't give me enough time for actually attending PAX) and I realized immediately that enough is enough. Seriously, there's enough to make a week out of the deal either before or
after PAX to save up for and I was always intending on making a week of it should I actually do so both to check out the local scene and
cap it off at PAX West. Or more specifically, I would make a family vacation out of it and follow up with PAX West at the end of the week. (Being of a different generation they're not exactly up with the culture, and some of it is kind of a bit off by comparison with even cosplay being a serious disconnect so this would obviously be a personal experience to begin with.)
My only question now (and seeing as the earliest I can save for is to do PAX West) is what the average cost is for one person for the whole weekend, not including the lodging, airfare or anything I'd do prior to PAX (e.g. Space Needle, Pike Place etc.)
