How old do you have to be to get in the convention?
All ages are permitted. Children 12 and under will be admitted FREE with an adult ticket purchase. ATTENTION: As this is a horror movie convention, there may be horror movie content on the convention floor, in the movie screenings, in Q&A’s and elsewhere during the event. While not a regular occurrence, violence, gore, strong language, drug references, nudity, etc. may be present in screenings, etc. Parental guidance is advised.
Do you guarantee that I will get to meet my favorite celebrity?
You should be able to meet every guest at our event. Demand for some celebrities may be particularly high and, while this is an extremely rare occurrence, in this instance it may be impossible for an individual celebrity to meet every attendee that wants to meet them. Please come to the convention to enjoy the entire convention and celebrity lineup, not just ONE celebrity.
Do the guests charge for autographs?
Most do charge for autographs, many supply a photo or other memorabilia that they’ll autograph for you. The amount charged for autographs varies by celebrity and most will sign the merchandise that you bring for them to sign. Autograph prices are determined by the celebrity and/or their management.
How much are Autographs and Photos with the guests?
Texas Frightmare Weekend does not decide what these prices will be. Each guest and/or their representative determines this price. We attempt to get as much of this info from the guest before the event. There will be instances in which we are unable to get this info before the event. However, all info that we have will be posted immediately on our GUESTS page. Any info available will be accessible by clicking the individual guest’s images on the GUESTS page. If the information is not there then we currently do not have it.
The guests typically charge a fee per item charged. You can bring your own item to be signed or guests typically have several of their own items available at their booth. If the guest allows photos at their booth then you must use your own camera.
I bought a VIP Pass. Can I use my Free autograph on any guest?
In general, yes. However, Texas Frightmare Weekend reserves the right to exclude guests from the free autograph option at their discretion. VIP autograph tickets are valued at up to $40. Attendee will be responsible to pay the difference in price if any.
Can I bring a camera to photograph celebrities?
Yes, cameras are allowed. The majority of our guests will be happy to take a photo with you! However, taking a photo with a celebrity is completely up to the individual celebrity. Please make sure to ask them first. Some guests will allow you to photograph them for free. Others may ask a fee.
Additionally, if demand for a particular guest is high the guest make ask that photos not be taken with them in order to meet as many fans as possible.
ATTENTION: Video cameras may be used for personal use only. Please be courteous and ask before filming people. ALL video footage shot at the Texas Frightmare Weekend is for personal use ONLY. Under NO circumstances may anyone film video footage of the convention, convention events or convention celebrities for commercial use.
What if the celebrity I really wanted to see cancels or does not make the show for some reason? Can I get a refund on my ticket?
Texas Frightmare Weekend has confirmed each guest personally. Situations out of control of the celebrity or Texas Frightmare Weekend may arise that prevent a guest from appearing at the show. We will announce cancellations as soon as we are made aware of them. Ticket prices will not be refunded. Please come to the convention to enjoy ALL of the guests and events.
Can I get a refund on my ticket?
Tickets purchased for Texas Frightmare Weekend, like tickets for any other event, are non-refundable and non-exchangeable for any reason.
