is it safe to bring my kids?

CVR is a family-friendly show. There are, however, studies that indicate using headsets under the age of 13 is unsafe. There will be restrictions on some of the technology that kids can try at the show. Please keep in mind that the show floor will feature loud music, mature content, and other elements that young children may find over-stimulating.  All children under the age of 12 MUST be accompanied by a paying adult.
