The ScareFest 2013 weekend will be here before you know it, and we are sure you have lots of questions. We are going to try to put you at ease by anticipating what you might like to know before heading out for Lexington to go to ScareFest.
Q. What time does the Ticket Box Office open each day?
A. Friday: 11am-9pm
Q. What time does the ScareFest open each day?
A. Sept. 13: 5pm-10pm (4pm for Platinum/Golden Ticket Holders)
Sept. 29: 11am-9pm (10am for Platinum/Golden Ticket Holders)
Sept. 30: 11am-4pm (10am for Platinum/Golden Ticket Holders)
Q. Are the stars’ autographs free?
A. Unfortunately, no. The main reason the celebrities are doing the convention (instead of actual film work, or time off to spend with their families) is because of the financial return these shows deliver. Some celebrities attending may sign for free, but nothing is guaranteed.
Q. How much are autographs?
A. We have no way of knowing what autograph pricing will be. The price is set by the individual talent. Generally, pricing is set at $15-35. I would plan on most costing $25.00.
Q. Will there be a line break rule?
A. Yes, the Platinum ticket holders will be able to come to the head of the long lines. While standing in the Platinum line beside the star’s line, they will alternate one by one with the regular star’s line; so not to congest the line. This way both lines will move quickly. Only the top headliners will be included in the line break.
Q. I have a machete, chainsaw, or other item I would like to get signed. Can I?
A. Yes, but you have to keep the items in a box, sheath, or container until it is signed; and then you must take it to your vehicle. Usually the Lexington Center does not allow this, but they have made an exception for this event.
Q. Are there ATM machines?
A. Yes, there is an ATM machine in the Lexington Center and at several locations close by.
Q. If I lose my keys, or I need to find something; what do I do?
A. We have a ticket office near the entrance; and all staff have been directed that if they are given, or if they find a lost item, to take it to the ticket office. We are not responsible for anything lost or stolen at the convention, but if you do lose something; ask about it at the ticket office.
Q. Will you have any bands or concerts?
A. Yes. We will be offering Backstage Passes. These bands are wow, bold and funky; and are going to rock your brains with their favorite tracks, while entertaining ScareFest fans for FREE.
