If you are sensitive to smell, you must alert us at least 2 hours prior to arrival so we can accomodate you. Room sprays, bleach cleaners, lysol, etc. are used daily and we are not resposible for any irritation/allergic reactions to such smells. Failure to play a room due to sensitivity to smells will not merit a refund..

Any bodily fluids emitted from any player, including children, during the game is the responsibility of the player/group and must be cleaned up properly with disinfectant and disposed of. Failure to do so will result in a cleaning fee proportional to damage caused/clean-up needed at a minimum of $50.
I am aware of and acknowledge that there are no clues or game play that require standing or climbing on furniture nor will I be required to force anything that does not easily move. Anyone who physically cannot or willfully chooses not to engage with stairs, slides, and other adventure themed elements can at any time contact a game master for alternative game play. Anyone vulnerable to flashing lights, water vapor, strobe lighting and anyone pregnant or whom otherwise has a physical or mental condition that at any time does not feel safe to participate in any of the themed elements of the room may at any time contact a game master and be removed from the game play and given a partial or full refund on a case by case basis.
I have no physical or mental illness that precludes my participation in a safe manner for myself or others. I am not under the influence of drugs or alcohol which impairs my ability to maintain my safety awareness or endangers others.
