Do I need to be a certain age?

After careful consideration due to the theme of the event with graphic images and bedroom items that will be on display, no babies or children (2-17 years) will be permitted, must be 18 and older. We hope that you understand our position on this decision.
For the dinner/ball, you must be 21+, as we will be catering alcohol. That means if you are buying VIP tickets, you must be 21 or older. An ID will be requested at check in and registration. Babies and children are not allowed at the dinner/ball.

Will I be able to get a refund or upgrade my ticket?

Once tickets have been paid for, they are non-refundable. However, you can transfer the ticket to someone else and put it under their name. If that is the case, please contact us by email with your information and theirs.

You cannot upgrade your ticket, you would have to buy a new ticket. Example: you bought a General Admission ticket but would like a VIP ticket, you would have to buy a VIP ticket, then you can keep, sell or give your General Admission ticket to someone else.
