Unfortunately, they’ll have to wait for next year! We have age limits set for safety reasons and educational purposes. However, if you are registering other children, you may bring the 5 and under children with you. We have an awesome playground and they’ll love watching their siblings, whetting their appetite for next year!

At the same time, there are aspects of our topography and certain safety requirements of some of our elements that can pose a challenge to guests with limited mobility and/or over 250 lbs. We do have options that can be explored for special accommodation and we welcome a conversation about any particular needs your guests may have. Please give us a call at 717-738-1490.
Yes, every participant must sign a Release Form. If the participant is under age 18, a parent/guardian MUST sign the form. Therefore, for school groups it is necessary to process the Release Forms prior to the event. The group organizer is responsible to collect the signed Release Forms and bring them along on the day of the event.
Signed Release Forms must be received in our office before we will begin your event.
