SAFETY IS OUR #1 PRIORITY

 

Face masks, under-helmet head coverings (bandanna or baseball cap), and gloves (full-finger with a reinforced palm to protect your hand against the cables and ropes) are required to ensure a safe and sanitary environment. If you don’t have your own, all items are available for purchase at all check-in locations at the park. Face masks are required throughout the park, and under-helmet head coverings and full-finger gloves are required on activities including the Eight Towers Adventure and Mountain Biking. Please note that face masks, under-helmet head coverings and gloves are not available to rent or loan.

Per Governor Pritzker's emergency rule adopted by the Illinois Department of Public Health, people over age two who are able to medically tolerate a face covering (a mask or cloth face covering to cover their nose and mouth) are required to use a face covering when in a public place, whether an indoor or outdoor space, and they are unable to maintain at least a six-foot social distance. For more information and to review the full emergency rule, please visit the Illinois Department of Public Health website.
