FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

No. Children ages 6 and under are FREE! Children ages 7 to 12 years must register under Kirby Kids.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Parking is free at the Crowne Plaza. You may also opt to use rideshare options such as Ride Austin or Lyft.

What can I bring into the event?

Bring family, friends, and cosplay! Cosplay props will need to be verified and tagged by our Security Team at check-in. This is a family-friendly event so please keep that in mind in regard to cosplays. If in doubt, just drop us a line!

Are you doing anything special for Valentine's Day?

Friday night is our Dinner & Comedy Show with Roxxy Haze as the headliner! Attendees who purchase VIP or VIP XL memberships (Single or 2-player) will be allowed entry into the event.

Will there be separate tickets/packages available for Valentine's Day only?

Tickets for the Dinner & Comedy Show will go on sale starting January 5th, 2020 until February 1st, 2020. Those tickets will be good for entry into the show only. You will not be able to enjoy other parts of the convention unless you have purchased a membership and wear your GCX badge or wristband. These will be available both online and onsite. Tickets purchased onsite will NOT be valid for the dinner portion of the show, so we encourage those who wish to enjoy the full experience to purchase their ticket prior to February 1st.

How much will the tickets be?

Prices will be released on January 1st.
