So last year the people at the pass booths gave my sister and I hassle, I was 16 and she was 12. She did not have a school id or any type of identification and it was really really annoying to deal with those people that gave us our passes. I am 17 now and my cousin that is going with me is 12 do you think they will give us a hard time trying to get our badges? He also has no identification because he is in middle school. I'm 17 with a state id and school Id. So they shouldn't have us sitting there for 30mins+ trying to get our badges right?

I'm 17 too but I've never had hassle and I didn't need identification because I paid with cash the last two times I've been to ACEN. :x
I've never seen anyone have hassle over the identification, but maybe it's just me lol. I'd assume you wouldn't have any hassle, though. D:

The ID check is only for people 18+. They check at registration to help keep the younger crowd away from adult orientated panels and events.This year they are checking badges and ID' to do so. This is for the younger attendee's safety and sanity. :)

Please do not answer questions with guesses. This is incorrect.

We check IDs for ages 17 and older
, and it is only to confirm your membership is yours. We cannot reasonably expect someone 16 and under to have a form of photo ID. You should be fine, and if my staff gives you trouble you can ask for a supervisor who can correct them.

Registration does not check IDs to restrict your access to our age restricted events, registration does not control that, that specific department or IRT will be doing that checking and will ONLY accept a state/gov't ID. Registration will accept school IDs but IRT will not. Your badge will never count as your age verification for an age restricted event.

Thank you very much. I've paid with cash all 3 years that I have been there and they always hassled me holding me there for about 30mins. I am going to print this out so I will be able to show them proof because I am getting sick of this. I will be sure to bring my state ID along. Thank you once again.

I'm sorry that happened to you in the past. We are leaving a list of the most common policies in plain sight of our staff this year. So hopefully that will not happen again :)
