I'm confused at the FAQ. I have 3 kids 8 and under. I want them to build a foam weapon on Thursday. Do they all have to buy a $45 day pass? If not then how do I register them for the event? Thank you.
"Obtaining a Child Wristband will allow you to purchase event tickets for them for KID events. If your child wishes to participate in a non-KID event that requires an event ticket, you will need to purchase a regular Gen Con Badge for them."
So yes... since building a foam weapon is not a KID event, they are required to purchase an event ticket which requires having a "real" badge.
For any events in category KID, you should be able to purchase tickets on a child wristband, which is free. More than that and you'll have to have someone else purchase a ticket for you; tickets can be used by anyone. Or, if one of the older kids wants to do a lot of non KID events, you CAN purchase a badge one of them, so they can do a lot of those events and get extra tickets for the younger ones. To be clear, you can't do non KID ticketed events on a child wristband, sorry for any confusion.
Hope this helps!
They should have more events in the kids section.
We will have more coming this week or the next week.

I'm getting in late Wednesday with my family. I have a child who I have requested a wristband for who will be asleep. Do I need to bring my childs ID to pickup the wristband when I grab my badge?
I have two children ages 8 and 5 and I would like to take them to the library. It's a ticketed event, but the system won't let me buy tickets. I feel like the library shouldn't require a badge purchase... so I know what the FAQ says, but is the library considered not a kids event???
I should add that we've used the library in the past using generic tickets, but this year I want to plan ahead since we've also been turned away when it was full...
Right, the library is not a KID event.
