Our pick for Greater Orlando’s top event in April: MegaCon

THE SOUTHEAST’S LARGEST COMIC, sci-fi, horror, anime and gaming event returns to the Orange County Convention Center on May 25-28 for MegaCon 2017. Regularly attracting more than 100,000 pop-culture fans to Greater Orlando each year, the event also provides plenty of opportunities for family fun.

As always, celebrity guests and signings will be the biggest attraction, and MegaCon has a galaxy of them lined up for this year’s edition. Some of the superstars scheduled to attend include Marvel Comics co-founder Stan Lee, Norman Reedus and Jeffrey Dean Morgan of The Walking Dead, actor Tim Curry, Daredevil’s Charlie Cox, rocker Alice Cooper, boxing legend Mike Tyson, actor/stuntman Ray Park, and even John Schneider, Tom Wopat and Catherine Bach of The Dukes of Hazzard fame.

Other features will include autograph and photo sessions with celebrities and comic creators, a costume contest, informative panels and Q&A sessions, the Batmobile from 1989’s Batman film, Star Wars events hosted by the 501st Legion, and a kids’ zone and family lounge. Also, attendees can take in the Rocky Horror Picture Show Experience, the Halo ODST Experience, a free retro video-game lounge, more than 400,000 square feet of geek-friendly shopping, and much more.

As of press time, tickets for all four days are still available, ranging in price from $20 to $50 for adults. (Children tickets are priced at $10 when purchased with an adult pass.) Furthermore, family passes and various packages are also available.
