For the health and safety of all our customers, all throwers must be 12 years old.
For throwers ages 12-17, waivers will need to be signed by parent/guardian before throwing.

Groups with minors need to be supervised by an adult for the duration of their throwing time. Supervising adults must be 25 years old.

Youth ages 12-17 cost their age per hour! So a 14 year old is $14/hour to throw! With any full priced adult on the lane!
