Multiple cast members from Pinky and the Brain that Orson Wellesian tribute to evil genius and Matt Groenings greatest creation, Futurama (which surpassed The Simpsons long ago) will be in attendance as we gather to bow down before our pantheon of hand-drawn gods.

One-day tickets start at $25, while three-day weekend passes start at $40. Hours are 3:30 to 10 p.m. Friday; 11 to 8 Saturday; and 11 to 6 Sunday.
