MindTrek is an immersive activity in which you and up to seven other participants move through an open space within the MindTrek facility guided by virtual reality technology. The immersive nature of this activity requires participants to interact with each other and with the computer-generated events and characters projected into participants’ field of vision. These projections include terrain, landscapes, and events that are not real; participants are restricted to a flat, open, warehouse area.
In consideration for gaining access to 34 Cummings Park, Woburn, MA, 01801 (the “Location”) and engaging the services of MindTrek Woburn, East Coast Reality, Zero Latency, Neurogaming, their agents, owners, officers, directors, representatives, assigns, affiliates, volunteers, participants, employees, insurers, and all other persons or entities acting in any capacity on their behalf, (herein after collectively referred to as “MindTrek” ), I on behalf of myself, my spouse, my children, my parents, my heirs, assigns, personal representatives, estate, and insurers, agree as follows:
I acknowledge that my participation in MindTrek virtual reality games or activities entails known and unanticipated risks that could result in physical or emotional injury including, but not limited to broken bones, concussions, vision issues, sprained or torn ligaments, paralysis, death, or other bodily injury or property damage to myself, my child(ren), or to third parties. I understand that such risks simply cannot be eliminated without jeopardizing the essential qualities of the activity. I expressly agree and promise to accept and assume all of the risks existing in this activity. My and/or my child(ren)’s participation in this activity is purely voluntary and I elect to participate, or allow my children to participate in spite of the risks.

I hereby represent and affirm that I have adequate and appropriate insurance to provide coverage for such medical expense. I UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT MINDTREK WILL NOT PAY FOR ANY COST OR EXPENSES INCURRED BY ME IF I AND/OR MY CHILD ARE INJURED UNLESS SUCH INJURY WAS CAUSED BY GREATER THAN ORDINARY NEGLIGENCE OF MINDTREK. In consideration of MindTrek allowing my or my child[ren]s’ participation in virtual reality games or activities, I for myself and on behalf of my child(ren) and/or legal ward, heirs, administrators, personal representatives, or assigns, do agree to hold harmless, release and discharge MindTrek of and from all claims, demands, causes of action, and legal liability, whether the same be known or unknown, anticipated or unanticipated, due to MindTrek’s ordinary negligence: and I, for myself and on behalf of my child(ren) and/or legal ward, heirs, administrators, personal representatives, or any assigns, further agree that except in the event of MindTrek’s gross negligence and willfull and wanton misconduct, I shall not bring any claims, demands, legal actions and causes of action, against MindTrek for any economic and non-economic losses due to bodily injury, death, or property damage sustained by me and/or my minor child(ren) that are in any way associated with MindTrek games or activities. Should MindTrek or anyone acting on its behalf be required to incur attorney’s fees and costs to enforce this Agreement, I for myself and on behalf of my child(ren), and/or legal ward, heirs, administrators, personal representatives or assigns, agree to indemnify and hold them harmless for all such fees and costs.

I agree that if any portion of this Agreement is found to be void or unenforceable, the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.
If there are any disputes regarding this agreement, I on behalf of myself and/or my child(ren) hereby waive any right I and/or my child(ren) may have to a trial and agree that such dispute shall be brought within one year of the date of this Agreement and will be determined by binding arbitration before one arbitrator to be administered by the American Arbitration Association pursuant to its rules and procedures. I further agree that the arbitration will take place solely in the state of Massachusetts and that the substantive law of Massachusetts shall apply.
I further grant MindTrek the right, without reservation or limitation, to videotape, photograph, and/or record me and/or my child(ren) on closed circuit television as well as for marketing purposes.
