*Not all attendees can attend all three days. The three day effects the capacity of other days. The “three day” ticket has a cap to ensure attendees who do not plan on attending the whole weekend have a fair chance of attending the day of their choice.

Q: Can tickets sell out at the door?
A: Like most events or things, anything is possible.We don’t have a crystal ball… Tickets are available online for months. We post “get your tickets in advance” daily on social media for a reason. We try to always have tickets available at the door for “day of” purchases. If purchasing a ticket the “day of” the show, there may be a wait.
*The box office sells Friday tickets on Friday, Saturday tickets on Saturday, and Sunday tickets on Sunday.
*The pace that tickets are sold at the door the day of the show are determined by the Fire Marshal.
If you have not pre-purchased a ticket, be prepared to wait or potentially not get in.

Q: I went to buy a ticket online for the day I want to attend but it says, “Tickets available at the door only”, what does that mean?
A: The message “Tickets available at the door only” means that pre-sale online sales for that day have ended. If you missed out on buying a ticket online, the only way to purchase a ticket for that day is to buy a ticket on-site at The Burbank Convention Center.

“Tickets available at the door only” = the ticket must be bought physically at the convention center at the box office.
*The box office sells Friday tickets on Friday, Saturday tickets on Saturday, and Sunday tickets on Sunday.

SIGNING GUESTS, AUTOGRAPHS & PANEL FAQ

Q: Is __________ scheduled to appear all three days of the show?
A: All celebrity guests are scheduled to attend Son of Monsterpalooza all weekend unless otherwise noted on our website www.monsterpalooza.com. For guest list, click the “GUESTS” tab at the top of the page.
*All guests are tentative

Q: Are autographs with featured signing guests free?
A: No. Autographs are not free. Signing guests and their management set their own prices for autographs and photos, not Son of Monsterpalooza.
*All guests are tentative*
*Son of Monsterpalooza is not responsible for guests or their policies*

Q: How much are autographs? How much are photos/selfies?
A: Signing guests and their management set their own prices for autographs and photos, not Son of Monsterpalooza. Unfortunately, we aren’t told in advance what signing guests charge. Based off what seems to be the norm for autographs, one can expect autographs/photos to range from $25-$40 per autograph or photo. Some signing guests may charge more, some may charge less. It is their choice what they charge – not ours.
*All guests are tentative*
*Son of Monsterpalooza is not responsible for guests or their policies*

Q: Will all featured signing guests take photos/selfies with me?
A: It is up to the signing guests and their management whether or not they want to take photos/selfies with fans. Photos with fans may have fees.
*All guests are tentative*
*Son of Monsterpalooza is not responsible for guests or their policies*

Q: Am I guaranteed to meet/get an autograph/photo with ____________ signing guest if I attend?
A: Simply buying a ticket to Son of Monsterpalooza does not guarantee you will meet who you want – as everything is first come first serve. Please arrive timely, as autograph lines may become long and demand can be unpredictable. Realistically, a signing guest can only sign so much in a day. If your attendance goals are focused on autographs, we recommend attending Friday, or purchasing a weekend ticket.
*All guests are tentative*
*Son of Monsterpalooza is not responsible for guests or their policies*
*Please come to the show to enjoy the entire convention, not just one signing guest.

Q: When will more signing guests be announced?
A: We announce signing guests around the same time every year. Guests are announced on social media when they are announced. You can also check our website’s “GUESTS” tab – as signing guests are usually posted there before being “announced”.

Q: Can autograph and/or booth lines be cut?
A: If a line reaches its limit, the line will be cut. Lines cannot extend beyond certain points to ensure aisles aren’t congested. If a line reaches its limit and are cut, you will have to come back later once the line discipates to join it. If autographs are your goal, we recommend attending Friday or the whole weekend for best chances of meeting your goals.

Q: Am I guaranteed a seat for ____________ panel if I attend?
A: Simply buying a ticket to Son of Monsterpalooza does not guarantee you will have a seat for the panel you want to attend, as seats in the theatre are not infinite. Please arrive timely, as presentation popularity can be unpredictable.

Delusion: The Blue Blade
Sep 20 @ 6:40 pm

The world has become erratic since the theft of the Blue Blade; artifact of unknown origin rumored to give its owner the power to tear through the fabric of space and time. Once held by the Safeguard Society, an elite group of historians, the blade was stolen by Professor Evelyn Lowell… one of their own.

Evelyn went underground and unlocked the mysteries of the blade. For years she ran a black market, amassing wealth by taking clients to other eras. But as prying eyes grew near, she disappeared. Rumored to be protected by a shadowy cult.

The fate of time and space hang in the balance as Evelyn and the blade slip further away. As a sign of desperation, the Safeguard Society look to you, their most promising initiates, to track down Evelyn and the blade.

There have been no leads. Until tonight.

CRYBABY – 2018
At Perpetuum Penitentiary the madness continues. As Paula continues to serve her time, she continues her decent into darkness. An unseen side of Paula is now coming into focus. A thought or mention of her dead child torments her soul and brings forth a psychotic rage aimed at those around her. The prison psychiatrist has prescribed Art Therapy, inflaming her rage and suffering. As a last resort, he has given her an unorthodox tool… A therapy puppet named “Lincoln”. Meant to represent her suffocated infant son, it will push her to a place of evil & perversion. The depravity spreads like a virus.

Will the puppet, Lincoln, lead her to acceptance of her crime? Or will it push her to nightmarish depths previously unknown. Will Paula chose a path to redemption or will she be devoured by the darkness, becoming a permanent inmate of hell. Otherwise known as Perpetuum, Death Row.

Paula, her dead son, and You are ……… Crybaby

Freakling Brothers Trilogy of Terror – Las Vegas
Sep 28 @ 6:00 pm

Freak Facts

Established in 1976, Freakling Bros., creators of Las Vegas’ premiere haunted attractions, unveiled the cities first free-standing haunted attractions in 1992 at the corner of Sahara and Decatur Boulevard.Circus of Horrors

Three years later the company pioneered the development of the industry’s first six trailer, completely self-contained mobile attraction, paving the way for a new concept in “haunted houses” that would sweep the country.

By the year 2000, two additional attractions had been added giving the company three separate and unique haunted structures. Every few years one of these attractions is demolished and completely rebuilt, insuring Freakling Bros. the ability to present the newest and most innovative technology available.

Gates of HellIn 2011, in an aggressive attempt to remain on the cutting edge, we unveiled the first ever R-Rated Haunted attraction in the state of Nevada, The Gates of Hell: an experiment in serious, uncompromising, interactive horror. It was an unprecedented gamble based on one simple theory: that our adult audience was ready for something more. What we had initially built for a niche’ audience surprised us by becoming a main stream success. Geared for the 17+ crowd, and based on the concept that “things happen to you”, The GATES of HELL is now a nationwide haunt industry phenomenon and an absolute game changer in the city of Las Vegas. 2011 represented a sort of rebirth for Freakling Bros. We experienced overwhelming crowds, and were Ranked #1 in the Western U.S. by Scarezone.com.

Then in 2013, with the unveiling of The Victim Experience, an all new level of intensity was achieved: “The only must-see Haunt in Nevada!”. “Third most Extreme Haunt in America!”. “Our staff considers Freakling Bros. one of the top Haunted Attractions in the world!”. We have reestablished ourselves, once again, as the trend setter in the haunt industry.

Circus of Horrors Performer

By concentrating on primal fears, relying on the power of live performers, and employing the art of theatrical illusion, Freakling Bros. has been and continues to remain a leader in the haunted attraction industry, with a reputation as “one of the best in the business” for over 30 years.

(Laguna Hills, CA, June 15, 2018) – Announcing the big, blood-soaked return of the most inventive haunted attraction company in Southern California, Sinister Pointe Productions will unleash a brand new kind of Halloween event this fall, Sinister Pointe’s Scary Place. Haunt lovers will be scared to death in three stories of unrelenting terror, covering over 150,000 square feet and featuring two all-new mazes and a brand new haunted dark ride.

The experience will begin as the brave and foolhardy alike cross the veil into the foggy realm known as the Scary Place. Two mazes and a new ride will await haunt goers in this murky realm of terror for a full night of Halloween fun including…

Evil on 2 – Walkthrough Attraction
There is an evil that has taken over the second floor of this quaint little hotel and we need you to venture into this maze to investigate! Let’s just hope that the terror within hasn’t spread!

PHOBIAS – Walkthrough Attraction
Welcome to “PHOBIAS”. Step right up and see if you have what it takes when you’re put up against some of your greatest fears. A fully interactive maze experience that will test your abilities to cope with your worst nightmares. We hope for your sake, being alone isn’t one of them!

Boogeyman Express – Ride
All aboard the boogeyman express. Rumor has it that the boogeyman and his evil minions roam these grounds hunting innocent bystanders! So I have an idea, lets go see if the rumors are true! Please keep your hands and arms inside the carts at all times, for this here is the most hair-raising terror train in the wilderness!

Between the screams, horror fiends can feast on a variety of snack foods and check out the revolting entertainment including a main stage, wandering magicians, games, roaming packs of monsters, and the Sinister Pointe Dark Market where new merchandise from vicious vendors will be available for purchase.

CRYBABY – 2018
At Perpetuum Penitentiary the madness continues. As Paula continues to serve her time, she continues her decent into darkness. An unseen side of Paula is now coming into focus. A thought or mention of her dead child torments her soul and brings forth a psychotic rage aimed at those around her. The prison psychiatrist has prescribed Art Therapy, inflaming her rage and suffering. As a last resort, he has given her an unorthodox tool… A therapy puppet named “Lincoln”. Meant to represent her suffocated infant son, it will push her to a place of evil & perversion. The depravity spreads like a virus.

Will the puppet, Lincoln, lead her to acceptance of her crime? Or will it push her to nightmarish depths previously unknown. Will Paula chose a path to redemption or will she be devoured by the darkness, becoming a permanent inmate of hell. Otherwise known as Perpetuum, Death Row.

Paula, her dead son, and You are ……… Crybaby

Freakling Brothers Trilogy of Terror – Las Vegas
Sep 29 @ 6:00 pm

Freak Facts

Established in 1976, Freakling Bros., creators of Las Vegas’ premiere haunted attractions, unveiled the cities first free-standing haunted attractions in 1992 at the corner of Sahara and Decatur Boulevard.Circus of Horrors

Three years later the company pioneered the development of the industry’s first six trailer, completely self-contained mobile attraction, paving the way for a new concept in “haunted houses” that would sweep the country.

By the year 2000, two additional attractions had been added giving the company three separate and unique haunted structures. Every few years one of these attractions is demolished and completely rebuilt, insuring Freakling Bros. the ability to present the newest and most innovative technology available.

Gates of HellIn 2011, in an aggressive attempt to remain on the cutting edge, we unveiled the first ever R-Rated Haunted attraction in the state of Nevada, The Gates of Hell: an experiment in serious, uncompromising, interactive horror. It was an unprecedented gamble based on one simple theory: that our adult audience was ready for something more. What we had initially built for a niche’ audience surprised us by becoming a main stream success. Geared for the 17+ crowd, and based on the concept that “things happen to you”, The GATES of HELL is now a nationwide haunt industry phenomenon and an absolute game changer in the city of Las Vegas. 2011 represented a sort of rebirth for Freakling Bros. We experienced overwhelming crowds, and were Ranked #1 in the Western U.S. by Scarezone.com.

Then in 2013, with the unveiling of The Victim Experience, an all new level of intensity was achieved: “The only must-see Haunt in Nevada!”. “Third most Extreme Haunt in America!”. “Our staff considers Freakling Bros. one of the top Haunted Attractions in the world!”. We have reestablished ourselves, once again, as the trend setter in the haunt industry.

Circus of Horrors Performer

By concentrating on primal fears, relying on the power of live performers, and employing the art of theatrical illusion, Freakling Bros. has been and continues to remain a leader in the haunted attraction industry, with a reputation as “one of the best in the business” for over 30 years.

Delusion: The Blue Blade
Sep 29 @ 6:40 pm

The world has become erratic since the theft of the Blue Blade; artifact of unknown origin rumored to give its owner the power to tear through the fabric of space and time. Once held by the Safeguard Society, an elite group of historians, the blade was stolen by Professor Evelyn Lowell… one of their own.

Evelyn went underground and unlocked the mysteries of the blade. For years she ran a black market, amassing wealth by taking clients to other eras. But as prying eyes grew near, she disappeared. Rumored to be protected by a shadowy cult.

The fate of time and space hang in the balance as Evelyn and the blade slip further away. As a sign of desperation, the Safeguard Society look to you, their most promising initiates, to track down Evelyn and the blade.

There have been no leads. Until tonight.

“This coming season attendees are invited to descend into Dark Harbor’s newly, Omni-immersive and hyper-enhanced mazes for its darkest season yet,” stated Charity Hill, Executive Producer of Dark Harbor. “With a myriad of voluntary experiences, alternate paths, secret bars, and hidden passages we are proud to deliver a choose-your-own-adventure mega haunt.”

Clock-in to a shift aboard the infamous Grey Ghost and avoid Chef’s chopping block while working up an appetite for flesh in the maze FEAST.

At Midsummer Scream on Sunday, July 29, the producers of Dark Harbor announced a devilishly-perfect addition to their creative team, the sinister & twisted mind of Jon Cooke. The NEW Dark Harbor Production Designer brings with him over a decade of experience designing some of SoCal’s most celebrated theme parks and haunted attractions.

As Dark Harbor’s darkest and most sinister season approaches, those daring enough to set foot on property will navigate a bone-chilling 9-degree Ice Bar, dodge hundreds of devious entities, seek out hidden havens, indulge in devilish treats, imbibe intense concoctions, survive Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch Sinister Swings, brave the Panic 4D Experience, and white-knuckle death-defying aerial and fire stunts for the haunt’s most frighteningly immersive season yet.
