AREA 51 LASER TAG

Appropriate footwear, rubber soled shoes recommended. Laser tag requires a lot of walking and maneuvering around barricades and up and down ramps.

ADRENALINE ARCADE

No specific requirements.

CAMO’S REVENGE (Our Mechanical Bull)

You will be required to remove your shoes prior to riding this attraction, so don’t worry about what shoes you’re wearing. What you do need to consider is that you will be thrown off Camo and inevitably, all eyes will be on you. No skirts or dresses. Know what we mean?

HIGH ROPES CHALLENGE

Shoes are required, must be securely on your feet, and have a functioning heel strap. No skirts or dresses are permitted as our safety harnesses will not fit properly over those articles of clothing–AND, let’s be frank, we don’t want you to give a “show” to spectators below.

INTERACTIVE BALLOCITY

You will be required to remove your shoes when entering this attraction, so don’t worry about what shoes you’re wearing. There are some areas of Ballocity where you’ll be required to crawl and we have some incredible slides you won’t want to miss. We recommend clothing that is comfortable and lets you move freely, and that doesn’t have loose buttons or tassels that will get caught in our netting. In addition, we highly recommend wearing socks while enjoying Ballocity. Socks on your feet will allow you to slide down our VERY FAST slides more comfortably.

ROCK CLIMBING

No skirts or dresses are permitted, as our safety harnesses will not fit properly over those articles of clothing. Shoes are highly recommended but not necessary. When rock climbing, you can expect that your shoes will rub against the rock wall surface, which could scuff your shoes.
