Each adult can only chaperone 4 minors at a time. Groups larger than 4 individuals under the age of 18 will require an additional chaperone for every 4 minors.

Proof of age may be required for any guests. Valid types of identification include driver’s license, non-driver ID card, passport, visa or military ID.
