Convention Rating

The rating of the Convention in general is PG. Specific areas and events which may exceed this PG rating will be clearly marked as such. The G, PG and M classifications are advisory only and there are no legal age restrictions regarding these ratings and as such these areas are open to all attendees of the convention regardless of age. Due to differences in international rating structures and systems, some adult situations may occur in which profanity or violence may be present. Where ever possible, we have indicated these events on the programming schedule to aid in our patrons viewing choices, but parental guidance is ALWAYS recommended.

 

Minors

GAMMA.CON defines a minor as anyone age 10 or under. All children age 10 and under MUST be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times. Under no circumstances will minors be allowed entry to the Convention unaccompanied. All accompanying parents or designated guardians must purchase and display a valid entry pass for the Convention.
