A NOTE ABOUT
The convention center is a two-story building and was built prior to modern building codes. As a result, it does not feature any wheelchair accessibility to the second floor. We have discussed this issue with the hotel and expressed our sincere, earnest desire that this be remedied as soon as possible.
Only one room at the convention is located on this level. The hotel is fully accessible and has a centrally-located elevator.
Our Advance Rates are no longer available. You can still register in-person at our standard rates.
ANIMAINE passes are non-transferrable and non-refundable, except VIP passes which can be refunded before October 1, 2018.
AFTER DARK RATES
ANIMAINE AFTER DARK is our programming block dedicated to the mature side of anime. After Dark content is for adults 18+ with ID only and may include adult language, imagery, situations, or materials. We're doubling our After Dark content for 2017, with an all-new After Dark section of the convention.
For the first time, we're inviting you to purchase After Dark Only badges. These badges are valid for ANIMAINE After Dark areas on Friday 7pm - 12am and Saturday 8pm - 12am. $20 gets you into both nights of After Dark content. After Dark is also included in our all-access pass.
Please note that Bootleg Bomber, RAVE//ANIME, and the Game Lounge are not included in After Dark Only passes. For access to these areas, and to any content before 7pm, you must have a standard ANIMAINE pass.
ADULT IN TOW RATES
We're unable to make these options available online. Adult in Tow passes can be purchased for these rates at the door.
$25 // FULL WEEKEND IN-TOW
$22 // ANY TWO DAYS IN-TOW
$20 // ANY ONE DAY IN-TOW
Adults escorting attendees age 6-13 may purchase a reduced cost badge for themselves. Attendees 5 and under are free. Attendees under 13 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Adult-In-Tow passes are not valid for any After Dark events. Limit one Adult-In-Tow pass per party.
// FINE PRINT
ANIMAINE passes are non-transferable and non-refundable. You may be required to present a government-issued photo ID to pick up passes purchased online. If you do not have a government-issued photo ID, a school ID or other identification card may be accepted instead. You must have a government-issued photo ID to access any 18+ areas of the convention and/or to pick up After Dark Only passes.
Certain areas of the convention may provide alcohol service. All alcohol service is provided by conference center staff and not by Animaine Inc., its volunteers, its employees, or its representatives.
While we make every effort to accommodate all guests, please note that we do not allow animals on the convention floor except dogs or small horses which are qualifying service animals under state and federal law. If you have any questions about whether your animal qualifies, please visit the ADA site before purchasing your pass.
EXCHANGE & MEDIA PASSES
Two styles of passes at ANIMAINE are provided by the convention to members of the public for free: Arts Exchange and Media/Press.
Arts Exchange passes are available to any anime convention chair or department leader. These passes are intended to provide convention leaders with the opportunity to see behind-the-scenes at ANIMAINE. We're a tiny show but that doesn't mean we don't have something to offer you!
Media/Press passes are available to any legitimate news outlet on a first come, first served basis.
Both passes are valid for our Green Room (which is closed to the public) during special designated hours.
