Frequently Asked Questions

You might be interested in:

Are there any age restrictions to enter LeakyCon?

Fans of any age are welcome to attend LeakyCon but, just as Harry had to be 11 to attend Hogwarts, our recommended age for LeakyCon attendees is 11 years of age. Some of our programming may not be suitable for attendees under the age of 11.

Do I need parental permission?

Attendees under the age of 18 attending LeakyCon without a registered parent or legal guardian must bring a signed permission form when they check in. The form can be downloaded here. Attendees under 18 attending the convention with a parent or guardian may forgo the permission form, provided that they check in together. Children under the age of 5 may attend for free with a registered parent or guardian.

In what currency will my credit card be charged?

While this event does take place in Ireland, tickets to LeakyCon are priced in US Dollars ($) and will be charged to your credit card in American currency. The Citywest hotel nightly room rate is priced in Euros (€) and will be charged to your credit card in such a manner.

What do I need to check in?

You will need to present a printed copy of your order confirmation and a completed permission form, if applicable, when you arrive on-site. We will scan your confirmation and exchange it for a convention badge which must be worn at all times during the event. Do not share your confirmation email with others. LeakyCon is not responsible in the event that a confirmation email has been shared with an unauthorized party.

Are there ID requirements?

No ID is required to purchase a ticket, however, if you are interested in purchasing alcohol at the event, you must present a government-issued photo ID verifying that you are over 18.

Is it possible to change or cancel my ticket?

Tickets may be upgraded or transferred by modifying the ticket information. Please note that all sales are final. If you purchase from another source, you risk buying a counterfeit or invalid ticket. LeakyCon is not responsible for tickets purchased from unofficial sources.

Is there a code of conduct for attendees?

Yes, of course! A huge piece of the Mischief Management mission is creating a fun, safe, accepting, and welcoming space where fans can celebrate what they love. The safety and security of all attendees is of the utmost importance to us. As such, we have a zero-tolerance policy for harassment of any kind and reserve the right to remove any person who violates that policy. You can read more about it here.

Can I cosplay? What’s your policy on costume weapons?

Real weapons of any kind are expressly forbidden on the premises of any Mischief Management event. Please see our Code of Conduct for more information.

Will there be an opportunity for autographs and photos with special guests?

Yes! These will take place on Sunday as a part of Expo Day. If you have a General or Marauder Pass, access to Expo Day is included in your ticket, but please note that autographs and photographs will come with additional cost. Marauder Pass holders receive two (2) complimentary autograph tickets and one (1) complimentary photograph ticket.

What does Expo Day include?

Day takes place on Sunday, and includes our autograph and photographs with special guests (at an additional cost) as well as access to the Marketplace Stage Q&As, performances, games, and pop-up programming. If you have a General or Marauder Pass, access to Expo Day is included in your ticket.
