We want you to have fun, but also stay safe.  Therefore, please mind these site restrictions for your safety and ours, and to ensure the event is fun for all.

  • Do not use skateboards or ‘hoverboards’. This is a safety concern.
  • Do not use drones. This is a safety concern.
  • Do not bring bottled gas tanks (e.g. helium). This is a safety concern.
  • Do not use noisy devices, such as floor stompers, whistles and/or air horns.

  • Do not distribute any food products, such as candy, water, soft drinks or fruit.
