GUEST CODE OF SAFETY AND CONDUCT
Read all of the text below. Failure to follow any of the regulations, conditions and instructions set forth below may result in serious injury to yourself or other individuals. Individuals not following Madison Seminary rules and safety instructions, will be subject to immediate ejection from Madison Seminary without refund.
Safety Standards – General Principles. Please understand that people may be excluded or removed in the interests of safety.
This may include, but is not limited to, concerns with sight-disabled people who need adequate eyesight to safely engage in an activity, height and weight restrictions, mobility and/or use and existence of all limbs in a stable and coordinated manner, a clear and alert mind which is unaffected by mental disability or other hindrance, being under the influence of any substances (whether legal or illegal, drugs or medications, alcohol, or any other chemicals and substances), signs of heat illness, any loose headwear or clothing or apparel which may damage property or pose a hazard to a guest or others, and whether or not a person may appear to be ill or injured or otherwise unable to safely participate.
For Your Safety:
Madison Seminary can be an adrenaline activity which puts substantial strain and forces on your body and senses, may cause muscular strain and stress on your body such as on your neck and back, and accelerated heart rate and blood pressure.
DO NOT PARTICIPATE IF YOU ARE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ANY ALCOHOL, DRUGS (WHETHER LEGAL MEDICATION OR ILLEGAL SUBSTANCES) OR OTHER SUBSTANCES WHICH MAY AFFECT YOUR HEALTH, SENSES, AND BODY REFLEXES AND COORDINATION.
DO NOT PARTICIPATE IF YOU HAVE ANY HEALTH CONDITIONS OR PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS OR INJURIES, OR IF YOU ARE TOO AFRAID TO PARTICIPATE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION HEART, NERVE, MUSCLE, BACK, NECK, BONE, JOINT, BRAIN, EYE, EAR, OR OTHER AILMENT OR INJURY, OR IF YOU ARE PREGNANT OR HAVE HAD SURGERY IN THE PAST FEW MONTHS OR IF YOU ARE STILL RECOVERING FROM ANY ILLNESS OR MEDICAL CONDITION, TREATMENT OR PROCEDURE. ONLY YOU CAN DETERMINE IF YOU FEEL GOOD ENOUGH TO SAFELY PARTICIPATE IN AN ATTRACTION. MADISON SEMINARY DOES NOT, AND CANNOT, GUARANTEE YOUR HEALTH, AND YOU FULLY ASSUME ALL RISKS OF ANY ACTIVITY IN WHICH YOU CHOOSE TO PARTICIPATE.
Each guest has legal and moral obligations to act responsibly.
This attraction is a physical activity which poses inherent risks. You must at all times act in a responsible manner to safeguard your own health and safety, and refrain from anything which poses a risk to others. Carefully read and obey all warning signs and instructions, attendant instructions, and recorded safety messages.
Safety must always come first above and beyond anyone’s desire to participate in an activity. If Madison Seminary determines in its sole discretion that you are not able to safely participate, we may prevent you from doing so (without any refund or other compensation to you).
Remember – safety is a shared responsibility! We can only do so much to keep you safe—it is up to you, as well. We can’t protect people from the consequences of their own reckless or irresponsible behavior. You must act responsibly for your own health and safety, and for that of others.
Finally, if at any time you feel you need help due to an injury or medical concern, please immediately notify Madison Seminary.
Our goal is to accommodate our guests with disabilities to the fullest extent possible and in compliance with law.
If you (or someone you are responsible for) have a particular disability or special need, we encourage you to contact Madison Seminary and speak with a guest service associate at least 48 hours in advance of your visit to better assist us in preparing for your visit. If you have a group of disabled persons, a week’s advance notice would greatly help us to better serve you.
While Madison Seminary complies with federal and state disability and accommodation laws, there are activities or areas of Madison Seminary which may not be safely accessible to all persons. Safety is the only consideration that takes precedence over fun! Thrill attractions, by their nature, may not be acceptable or tolerable to some guests and may cause injury to participants with known or unknown pre-existing conditions.
In general you should only participate at Madison Seminary, if you are in good health. Do not attend or participate if you know or suspect that you may be pregnant, have high blood pressure, heart, neck or body problems, motion sickness, recent surgery, or any other medical condition that may be affected by the features of Madison Seminary. You should not attend if you have any impairment or condition that would prevent participation.
Please note that Madison Seminary does NOT provide medication, insulin, or other medical treatments or devices; please plan your visit accordingly.
Weather is unpredictable, and can pose certain health and safety hazards. For example, if you are sensitive to cold or heat, you should consider not visiting Madison Seminary on a hot or cold day and/or limit your time. Or, if you have poor mobility or stability, it might be better for you not to come on a wet day where things might be more slippery. Only you can make informed decisions about weather forecasts and whether or not any given day would be appropriate for a visit.
Animals of any kind are not allowed, except for legally-defined service dogs or as may otherwise be required by law to assist those with disabilities (“disabilities” being defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act or other applicable laws). If you claim to have a legally-qualifying “service dog” you will be required to verify its legitimacy, pursuant to applicable legal requirements which are then in effect. A “service animal” is defined by law, and not by a person’s personal desires. For example, a “companion” animal, or an animal that brings “emotional comfort,” or a dog which serves as “personal security,” does not qualify as a legal “service animal.”
Even if a “service animal” is verified, and allowed to enter, please be aware that you are still responsible for controlling it at all times.
Please understand that we may require removal of your service animal from Madison Seminary property if it poses a threat to persons or property, including without limitation, if it is unruly, threatening, aggressive (barking, snarling, biting at patrons, etc.) and/or if you are unable to control your animal at all times.
All guests must behave in a courteous manner, and in a manner which is safe for themselves and for others. Violations may result in ejection from Madison Property without refund or other compensation. The following is strictly prohibited, subjecting the violator to ejection without refund:
All of the following are strictly prohibited items which will (minimally) subject the guest to immediate ejection without refund, and which (where appropriate) may result in Madison Seminary contacting authorities for law enforcement action, and holding the guest at to await the authorities. Madison Seminary reserves the right at all times to conduct Bag Checks (and to utilize other security measures, such as metal detectors), and to refuse entry (without refund) to anyone refusing a thorough bag check or to comply with other security measures.
Madison Seminary cannot, and does not, guarantee your personal security or that of your personal property and in no event will be held liable for your lost, stolen or damaged possessions.
Madison Seminary can only try to reasonably watch over the premises and the people therein, and respond in a professional manner to any security threat or incident.
If you experience a security issue, please notify staff; we are here to assist you.
Madison Seminary May Take and Use Images & Video of All Guests. Madison Seminary at all times reserves the right to videotape patrons, and take still images, and to utilize those images and videos for any reason, including marketing, advertising, promotion, on social media, live streaming on the Internet, for safety and security, for documentation as evidence in a legal or criminal matter or other investigation, for news reporting, and otherwise in an unrestricted manner for legitimate purposes. All property ownership of such materials, and copyright in and to all such materials, shall belong exclusively to Madison Seminary in perpetuity, without any compensation or other consideration to any guest or other person in, on or around the Madison Seminary property.

In any event where unauthorized video or images has been uploaded to any social media channel, Madison Seminary shall have the unrestricted and exclusive right and authority to have such materials removed. Any materials which defame Madison Seminary may result in legal action for damages, and Madison Seminary shall have absolute right and authority to obtain both temporary and permanent injunctions from the further use or dissemination of such material, in all channels and all mediums of communications, throughout the world, whether now known or hereafter devised, and to obtain all materials and obtain an order for the destruction of all such materials.

At a minimum, any protests/demonstrations must be outside of Madison Seminary's property and at least 500 feet away from all entrances/exits. Anyone violating this rule on or within property will be subject to immediate removal from premises.
