Aerial Adventure Park Visitor Agreement

(Including Assumption of Risk and Agreements of Release and Indemnification)

Today's Date: August 8, 2020

Please  read  this  document  carefully.  It  must  be  signed  by  all  adult  (18  years  of  age  and  older)  visitors  to    the  aerial  adventure  park  owned  and  operated  by  Navitat-­Knoxville  Ijams,  LLC    and  located  in  Knoxville,  Tennessee  (“the  Park”).  “Visitors”  as  used  in  this  Agreement  includes  participants  in  the  activities  of  the  Park,  trainees,  group  and  individual  chaperones,  observers  and  others  on  the  premises  of  the  Park.  If  a  Visitor  is  a  minor  (under  18  years  of  age),  his  or  her  parent  or  legal  guardian  (each  referred  to  in  this  Agreement  as  “Parent”)  must  sign,  for  himself  or  herself  and  on  behalf  of  the  minor.    Parents are  urged  to  consult  with  legal  counsel  regarding  the  permissible  scope  of  a  Parent’s  authority  to  sign  on  behalf  of  his  or  her  child.    A Parent, or  a  chaperone  appointed  by  the  Parent,  shall  accompany  all  Visitors  under  the  age  of  twelve,  as  directed  by  staff. 

In  consideration  of  the  services  of  Navitat-­Knoxville  Ijams,  LLC,  I,  an  adult  Visitor  and/or  Parent,  for  myself  and,  to  the  maximum  extent  allowed  by  law,  on  behalf  of  the  minor  Visitor  for  whom  I  sign  below,  acknowledge  and  agree  as  follows:     

  ACTIVITIES:  This  Agreement  applies  to  all  aspects  of  a  visit  to  the  Park,  including  participation  in  the  aerial  tour  described  below,  and  other  activities,  such  as  events  or  services  provided,  sponsored,  authorized  or  allowed  by  the  Park.  Visitors  are  allowed  to  move  about  the  premises  on  which  the  Park  is  located  and  in  and  around  guest  buildings,  and  to  hike  on  designated  trails,  complying  with  all  posted  signage  and  placards  and  instructions  given  by  the  Park  staff.    Visitors  may  be  transported  to  activity  sites  and  elsewhere  in  vehicles  operated  by  the  Park  staff.    Participants  in  the  aerial  tour,  assisted  by  personal  protective  equipment  (including  harnesses,  lanyards  and  pulleys)  and  methods  approved  by  the  Park,  will  move  across  uneven  and  sometimes  steep  terrain,  climb  stairs  or  ladders  or  other  structures  to  access  high  platforms,  and  traverse  from  platform  to  platform  by  means  of  high  ropes  course  elements,  zip  lines,  suspension  bridges,  sky-­bridges,  rappels  (controlled  descent  by  rope),  and  other  ropes  course  elements  at  heights  of  up  to  100  feet.    Visitors  may  engage  in  other  activities,  supervised  and  not  supervised. 

  RISKS:      The  property  on  which  the  Park  is  located  is  remote  and  includes  rocky  and  wooded  terrain,  cliffs,  ravines,  and  creek  beds  which  may  be  home  to  potentially  harmful  plants  and  animals,  including  but  not  limited  to  snakes,  ticks,  and  poisonous  plants.  Structures  and  personal  protective  equipment,  including  harnesses,  lanyards,  pulleys,  ascension  devices,  belay  devices  and  lowering  devices,  may  fail.    Other  Visitors  and  Park  staff  may  act  carelessly,  including  failure  to  adequately  secure  safety  equipment.    Environmental,  including  weather,  hazards  may  cause  illness  and  injury.    The  activities  of  the  Park,  moving  about  its  premises  and  transportation  to,  from  and  upon  the  premises  will  expose  visitors  to  falls,  collision  with  other  persons  and  fixed  objects,  scrapes,  bruises,  stings,  broken  bones,  sprains,  neurological  damage,  shock,  and,  in  extraordinary  cases,  death.  Circumstances  may  cause  emotional  upset,  including  hurt  feelings,  panic,  or  other  psychological  trauma.  Other  risks  will  be  encountered  and  injuries  may  occur  in  spite  of  efforts  taken  by  the  Park  staff  to  prevent  them.  The  risks  described  above,  and  others,  are  inherent  in  a  visit  to  the  Park  and  cannot  be  eliminated  without  changing  the  nature  of  the  activities  and  the  value  and  appeal  of  the  visit.    

Further, I am advised that if I am sick or feeling that I am getting sick, or if I am a member of a high risk group, it has been requested by Operator that I stay at home, and not participate in the activities of the zip line tours, including those activities described above. Further, I am fully aware of the general recommendations of the CDC as it regards social distancing, hand washing and disinfection. I am aware that older adults and persons with underlying health conditions are considered to be in a high risk group, and therefore are at increased risk of severe illness and complications from COVID-19. Examples of underlying health conditions include heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, people with weakened immune systems, and people who are pregnant. The CDC recommends that people in high-risk groups consult with their healthcare provider about attending any functions or gatherings where participants will be in close proximity to each other. I am also aware that the Activities described above, are ones where, from time to time during the activity, there will be close contact/proximity with other persons, and also contact with surfaces that other persons (who possibly may be infected with COVID-19) have come in contact with in an outdoor adventure environment.

ASSUMPTION  OF  RISKS:  I,  an  adult  Visitor,  am  knowingly  and  willingly  choosing  to  participate  in  the  activities  of  the  Park,  including  those  described  above,  and  including  transportation  and  moving  about  the  premises  of  the  Park.  I  acknowledge  and  voluntarily  assume  ALL  the  risks  of  my  visit,  inherent  and  otherwise,  and  whether  or  not  they  are  described  above.  If  the  Visitor  is  a  minor,  I,  Parent,  have  discussed  the  activities  and  risks  with  him  or  her,  the  minor  child  understands  them  and  wishes  to  participate  in  the  visit  and  activities  nevertheless,  and  I  consent  to  such  participation. 

Further, by signing this Agreement, I acknowledge that I am aware of the contagious nature of COVID-19, and the risks mentioned above regarding COVID-19, and voluntarily assume the risk that I, or the minor child for whom I sign, may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by participating in the Activities described above, and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death, and which exposure may result in all of such consequences affecting every other person I, or the minor child for whom I sign, comes in contact with after exposure.  In assuming this risk, I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at the Premises may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of Operator and others, including, but not limited to, employees, agents, and representatives and other zip line tour participants, or customers, invitees or guests of Operator or its employees at the Premises, or their families.

REPRESENTATION  ON  AUTHORITY  OF  SIGNATORIES:    In  signing  this  Agreement,  I  represent  and  warrant  that  I  am  duly  authorized  and  have  legal  capacity  to  execute  and  deliver  this  Agreement.    By  executing  this  Agreement  on  behalf  of  a  minor  child  or  ward,  I  represent  and  warrant  that  I  am  the  parent  of  the  minor  child,  legal  guardian  of  the  minor  child,  or  otherwise  have  the  authority  to  execute  this  Agreement  on  behalf  of  the  minor  child.  I  further  acknowledge  that  Navitat-Knoxville  Ijams,  LLC  is  reasonably  relying  on  my  representation  that  I  have  the  legal  capacity  to  execute  and  deliver  this  Agreement  and  that  any  misrepresentation  made  may  subject  me  to  civil  and  personal  liability.       

AGREEMENTS  OF  RELEASE  AND  INDEMNITY:  I,  an  adult  Visitor  and/or  Parent  of  a  minor  Visitor  (Parent,  for  myself  and,  to  the  maximum  extent  allowed  by  law,  on  behalf  of  my  minor  child  or  ward  for  whom  I  sign),  hereby  agree  to    release  and  agree  not  to  sue  Navitat-­Knoxville  Ijams,  LLC,  its  members,  owners,  directors,  staff,  volunteers  and  independent  contractors,  and  owners  of  the  property  on  which  the  Park  is  located  (“Released  Parties”)  from  any  and  all  liability  for  any  loss,  damage,  expense  or  injury,  including  death,  that  I,  or  my  minor  child  or  ward,  may  suffer,  arising  from  or  in  any  way  related  to  my  (or  the  minor’s)  visit  to  the  Park,  including  transportation,  participation  in  Park  activities  and  the  use  of  its  premises  and  facilities.  I  further  agree  to  hold  harmless  and  indemnify  (that  is,  defend  and  pay,  including  costs  and  attorney’s  fees)  the  Released  Parties  and  each  of  them  from  liability  for  any  claim,  including  damage  to  property  or  personal  injury  and  death,  by  whomever  it  might  be  brought,  including  me,  my  minor  child  or  ward,  a  member  of  my  or  the  minor  child’s  family,  a  co-­participant  or  otherwise,  arising  from  or  in  any  way  related  to  my  (or  the  minor’s)  visit  to  the  Park,  including  transportation,  participation  in  Park  activities  and  the  use  of  its  premises  and  facilities.  These  agreements  of  release  and  indemnity  include  claims  arising  from  the  negligence  (but  not  the  gross  negligence  or  intentionally  wrong  conduct)  of  a  Released  Party. 

I understand and agree that this release includes any such claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of the Operator, its employees, agents, and representatives, or their respective families as the cause of COVID-19 infection(s), whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any of the Activities described above.  I also understand and agree that in the event I, or the minor child for whom I sign, are the cause of any such COVID-19 infection(s), whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in the Activities described above (and notwithstanding whether I, or the minor child for whom I sign, had knowledge of his, her or their COVID-19 infection at the time it was contracted by a third party), the hold harmless and indemnification I agree to above in favor of the Released Parties shall extend to any claim, including damage to property or personal injury and death, based thereon, by whomever made.   

 

OTHER:  I,  an  adult  Visitor  and/or  Parent  of  a  minor  Visitor  (for  myself  and  on  behalf  of  a  minor  for  whom  I  sign)  further  acknowledge  and  agree  as  follows:   

  1. Chaperones,  either  individually  appointed  or  accompanying  groups  of  minor  Visitors,  must  familiarize  themselves  with  policies  of  the  park  including  those  regarding  chaperones.    These  policies  are  posted  in  all  Guest  areas  and  on  the  website.  Chaperones  are  responsible  for  supervision  of  minors  participating  in  the  aerial  tour.  A  chaperone  must  be  immediately  available  to  provide  comfort  and  assurance  to  a  child  who  might  need  emotional  support,  on  the  aerial  tour  or  otherwise,  and  to  make  medical  decisions  on  behalf  of  the  child  if  necessary.  The  Park  is  not  responsible  for  the  acts  or  omissions  of  chaperones  providing  such  supervision  and  assistance.   
  2. I  authorize  Park  staff  to  either  administer  or  obtain  emergency  medical  care  for  me,  or  for  the  minor  child,  in  the  event  of  an  illness  or  injury,  and  I  agree  to  be  responsible  for  all  costs  related  to  that  care,  including  transportation.   
  3. I  hereby  grant  permission  to  the  Park  staff  to  use  any  photographs  or  video  taken  of  me  or  the  minor  visitor  while  on  Park  premises  for  any  promotional  purpose,  without  compensation.
