I am aware of Governor Inslee's phased approach to reopening Washington State and I acknowledge that restrictions may change.
I (and all guests) agree to comply with the restrictions that are in place at the time of my event. This includes not exceeding facility capacity, wear of face masks, and maintaining social distancing.
I understand and accept that failure to comply with these restrictions and/or follow the instructions of Park staff enforcing them, may result in termination of my event, eviction of all in my party, and forfeiture of fees paid.
