During the experience, participants will be exposed to loud sounds, sudden movements and effects which may be too intense for some people. Due to the nature of the game, we are not ADA/Wheelchair accessible. We are sorry for any inconvenience. Please do not show up intoxicated. Persons who appear to be under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs will not be allowed to participate and NO refund will be given.
