This is a bit last-minute, but I have gotten quite a few of these questions.
Q: Are children allowed at the con?
A: Yes, they are allowed, and children under 8 are free. However, there is no child-specific content (although most videos will be G or PG), and any child under the age of 13 must be with an adult at all times.
Q: Will there be teenager-friendly content?
A: This depends on the teenager, of course! Most of our content is rated PG-13 at the most. However, any teenager who has a lot of trouble sitting still for an hour might be bored with much of the panel content.
Q: Are single day tickets sold?
A: Unfortunately, no. Because we are offering weekend tickets for less than most major conventions charge for a single day, we cannot offer single-day passes at this time. We will take this into consideration for next year, however.
Q: Are tickets to just the ball sold?
A: Again, no. The ball (but not the tea) is included with the weekend pass. Tea tickets are sold out.
Q: Can I take pictures?
A: Yes, of course! Please make sure you ask the permission of our special guests before taking pictures of them, and respect the wishes of anyone who asks you not to take their picture.
Q: Can I bring/wear weapons?
A: Realistic modern weapons, replicas and swords are not allowed. Modified nerf guns and weapons that are clearly not a rebuilt real firing weapon are allowed. ALL weapons must be peace-bonded by Operations. Brandishing is not allowed. These are the rules of the Tivoli.
Q: Can I pay with a check for my badge?
A: No. AnomalyCon does not accept checks. It is at the individual vendor’s discretion to accept checks, but there is a fee-free ATM in the Tivoli. That means they don’t charge you to use it (although your bank might still charge a fee).
Q: I have a really cool idea for AnomalyCon 2012! Where can I send it?
A: Please use our contact us form above.
