I understand that this is a special event and the experience may be very different than previous events hosted at Fear Columbus Haunted House.
I understand that due to the unique nature of this attraction it is impossible for Francis Frights to ensure our safety from colliding with other guests, staff members, props, walls or other set pieces while traveling through the event. I understand that at any point if my behavior inside the attraction is seen as a risk to the safety of others or myself, all member of my party will be removed immediately without a refund.
I understand that actors or staff members will not intentionally touch any guests. However given the dark and disorienting nature of this attraction they may indirectly or unintentionally touch or brush up against. I aknowledge and accept this risk.

I hereby assert that my participation is voluntary and that I knowingly assume all such risks including serious injury or death.
I further agree to defend and indemnify Providers for all loss and damage (including, without limitation the reimbursement of the fees and expenses of attorneys and expert witnesses) arising from claims or lawsuits for personal injury, death, property loss and damage or other losses or damages arising from or related to my participation in the haunted house activities organized by Francis Frights LLC. I understand losses include, without limitation reimbursement of Providers for the fees and expenses of Providers serving as witnesses, preparing for trial, or participating in any proceeding.
