Keeping you safe

When you come to The Factory, we want you to have a great time. We think safety is a huge part of a good experience. We have trained medical staff with our partner Med-On-Site, rules will be highly visible and enforced, and our adventure guides will be thoroughly trained for all situations.

Med-On-Site

Located inside 100 Kellogg right next to The Factory is our medical partner, Med-On-Site. Their medical staff are trained to the level of paramedics and nurses, specializing in athletic and emergency care. Their knowledge, skills and physician oversight mean they are able to perform any required medical acts in an instant, providing the highest level of care available for the Factory’s guests.

Staff Training

Each adventure guide must complete extensive training on our attractions, becoming experts on the safety equipment and rules. For example, the ropes course involves 40+ hours of practical training to ensure safe management of the adventure.
