Room Party

Looking to host a get together of friends at the con? Wanting to get a bit rowdy while you enjoy the weekend away from home? There is an option for you! As you know, most of the con above the first floor is “quiet” space for those wanting to rest in the hotel. This means that the ONLY place you can have your noisy get together or room party is on the SECOND FLOOR “Rowdy” area. Here, you will not be asked to turn it down, quiet down, or shut off the lights. Here, you can have as much (responsible) fun as you want and do it without having to worry about the regulations in the rest of the hotel. Find out more by emailing roomparty@animeiowa.com or check out the Room Party thread on the forums.
