As a visitor you are required to (i) READ AND FOLLOW all written rules, directions, warnings, and recommendations and make proper use of our leisure facilities and safety equipment, if any, provided, and (ii) FOLLOW our staff's instructions and directions.

If you are a visitor in charge of people who, for reasons of age or disability, are unable to read or understand any rules, directions, warnings and/or written recommendations, please have these explained to them and ensure they are reminded of such rules, directions, warnings, and recommendations as necessary. Our staff will be happy to provide all the necessary assistance.

The rides and other Park facilities, including interactions with these, can provide you with wonderful memories and exhilarating fun! However, they can also pump up your adrenaline through different forces (centrifugal and centripetal), accelerations, speed, fast and unpredictable movements, which can push you in different directions. This can cause, among other things, muscle tension and stress in your neck and back, raise your heart rate and increase your blood pressure.

IT IS THEREFORE ESSENTIAL THAT YOU DO NOT RIDE OR ALLOW PEOPLE IN YOUR CARE TO ENTER ANY RIDES OR TAKE PART IN ANY INTERACTIONS OR ACTIVITIES IF YOU ARE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL, MEDICATION OR ANY OTHER NARCOTIC SUBSTANCE THAT MAY IMPAIR YOUR HEALTH, SENSES, MENTAL ALERTNESS, REFLEXES AND/OR CO-ORDINATION.

DO NOT ENTER - OR LET YOUR DEPENDENTS ENTER - ANY RIDE, OR TAKE PART IN ANY INTERACTION OR ACTIVITY IF YOU HAVE OR HAVE HAD OR BELIEVE YOU HAVE ANY MEDICAL CONDITION, PRE-EXISTING HEALTH PROBLEM OR INJURY INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, HEART, NEUROLOGICAL, MUSCULAR, BACK, NECK, BONE, JOINT, TENDON, LIGAMENT, BRAIN, EYE, EAR, OR ANY OTHER MEDICAL CONDITION OR INJURY THAT MAY BE TRIGGERED OR AGGRAVATED BY YOUR USE OF THE RIDE OR YOUR PARTICIPATION IN ANY ACTIVITY.

UNLESS OTHERWISE DIRECTED, YOU SHOULD NOT USE OUR RIDES IF YOU ARE (OR SUSPECT YOU MAY BE) PREGNANT; IF YOU HAVE HAD SURGERY WITHIN THE PAST FEW MONTHS; OR IF YOU ARE STILL CONVALESCING OR RECOVERING FROM ANY ILLNESS, DISEASE, MEDICAL TREATMENT OR PROCEDURE.

YOU ALONE CAN DETERMINE WHETHER YOU ARE PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY FIT TO SAFELY ENTER A RIDE OR TAKE PART IN ANY OTHER ACTIVITY.

WE CANNOT GUARANTEE YOUR (OR YOUR DEPENDENTS') HEALTH: YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR DETERMINING THAT YOU (OR YOUR DEPENDENTS) ARE FIT AND ABLE TO USE A RIDE OR PERFORM AN ACTIVITY, AND FOR DETERMINING THAT YOU MEET ANY AGE, WEIGHT, AND HEIGHT RESTRICTIONS UNDER APPLICABLE OPERATION RULES.
