The Factory is committed to providing an inclusive environment for all guests visiting and enjoying the attractions offered at The Factory. The building is accessible to all persons with disabilities, and we are dedicated to providing the opportunity to equally enjoy and benefit from the attractions and services that we offer our guests.

Booking Online & Waivers

Do I have to book in advance or can I just show up?

No, you don’t have to book your visit in advance but it is strongly encouraged so that you can get the timeslot you want for our scheduled activities including the high ropes course, trampoline park, escape rooms, and virtual reality.

What will happen after I purchase an attraction online?

After booking your experience online, you will receive an email notification with your booking code. You will also receive a link to register your account (if you don’t have one already). We also recommend completing your waiver online in advance of your visit to save time. When you show up on the day for your activity, leave a few minutes ahead of time to get your Factory pass at the front desks.

How do I book The Next Level VR or mystery escape rooms?

You can book these directly through The Factory website or at the front desk just like our other attractions. If you call these businesses directly, they can also take bookings.

What if I just want to watch?

If you want to come in but not participate in one of our paid, scheduled activities, then you will need to buy a “General Admission Pass.”  This $15 pass becomes a voucher on your Factory account to use towards the arcades, food, and drink. If you’re not sure exactly what you want to do, this is a great option!

I'm supervising my child, but I'm not participating in any activities. Do I have to pay to get in?

As a parent, you get into The Factory for free if your child is participating in a paid attraction. If more than one parent is supervising, one parent gets free admission, and the other will need to buy a $15 General Admission pass. This $15 pass becomes a voucher to use towards the arcades, food, and drink.

Do I have to sign the waiver in advance?

A waiver is required for all people entering The Factory. We have an online waiver you can fill out before your visit or we have waiver kiosks at the front gate before you pick up your pass. Note that persons under 18 require a guardian to sign the waiver so filling this out online before your child’s visit with friends or a school group is required.

What if I have a party? Do all people have to sign the waiver separately?

Yes, all people entering The Factory need to sign a waiver. Please send the waiver link in your party invites to make the entry for your party go smoothly. Note for kids and teen parties, waivers must be filled out by a guardian so please get the parents of the party guests to complete before the day of your party. As the host, you cannot sign a waiver for all those under your supervision.

Do I have to sign a waiver if I'm not participating?

Regardless of whether you are participating or not, we do require a waiver for all people within The Factory facility. Fill out the waiver in advance online or use one of our waiver stations located at the entrance. It will only take a few minutes and lasts for a year.
