A parent must accompany any child under 5 at all times. Depending on the number of kids who just want to play in the foam pit, the zip line may be closed or will run on and off every 30 minutes. After 3:00 during the weeks and during all weekend hours, no child under 4 will be allowed on the course. This is for the safety of younger kids and to allow the age appropriate kids the chance to enjoy the course as it was designed.

Kids not on the course will wait in a line for their turn.
