Are you ready for an exciting event where you can meet your favorite special guests, get autographs, and immerse yourself in the world of collectibles? Look no further than Collect A Con Long Beach! In this article, we will answer some frequently asked questions to help you make the most of this incredible experience.
Autographs and Special Guests
One of the burning questions on everyone’s minds is whether autographs from the special guests are free. Well, the pricing for autographs and photo opportunities varies based on the special guest. Each guest has their own individual fees, and the pricing is done independently from the Collect A Con event. So be sure to check out the prices when you meet your favorite stars. Please note that some guests may only accept cash, so make sure to come prepared.
Both general admission and VIP ticket holders have access to meet the special guests. It’s an opportunity you don’t want to miss! So grab your ticket and get ready to have a fantastic time.
Prepayment and Check-In
Now, you might be wondering if you can prepay for autographs. Unfortunately, at this time, autographs and photo opportunities are only available at the show, at the special guests’ tables, on the day of the event. So make sure to bring some cash or a credit card to fulfill your autograph dreams.
As for check-in, you might be hoping to receive your VIP pass or general admission ticket the day before the show. However, currently, you can only check-in and receive your passes on the day of the show. So mark that day in your calendar and get ready for an amazing adventure.
VIP and Fast Pass
Now, let’s talk about the VIP and Fast Pass. The VIP Fast Pass includes Saturday and Sunday admission to the show, with early access starting from 9 am. VIP Fast Pass holders also receive a free Collect A Con shirt. Isn’t that cool? There is a separate line for each special guest, specifically marked for VIP attendees. So if you want to have a VIP experience and get those exclusive perks, make sure to grab a VIP Fast Pass. Some shows also offer a “Sunday Only” Fast Pass, which is for Sunday only and does not include a free shirt.
Hours and Ticket Information
The Collect A Con hours are 10 am to 6 pm on Saturday and 10 am to 5 pm on Sunday. But here’s the exciting part: VIP attendees can enter an hour early, at 9 am on both days. So if you want to beat the crowd and get a head start on exploring, consider becoming a VIP attendee.
For families, we have good news! Children under the age of 7 can enter for free. It’s the perfect opportunity to introduce young ones to the world of collectibles and special guests.
We also offer military discounts, which are available at the door, on the day of the show. It’s our way of showing appreciation for those who serve.
At Collect A Con, we strive to provide an unforgettable experience. That’s why we offer on-site card submissions. However, please note that we do not currently provide on-site grading services. For autograph authentication, we rely on the renowned PSA. So you can trust that your signed items are in safe hands.
