Holiday Animals, LLC is committed to conducting its skating activities in a safe manner and holds the safety of participants in high regard. It is our goal to strive to reduce risks and insists that all participants follow safety rules and instructions that are designed to protect the participants’ safety. However, participants registering for this activity must recognize that there is an inherent risk of injury when choosing to participate in ice skating activities.
You are solely responsible for determining if you are physically fit and/or adequately skilled for ice-skating activities. It is always advisable, especially if the participant is pregnant, disabled in any way or recently suffered an illness, injury or impairment, to consult a physician before undertaking any physical activity.
Warning of Risk
Ice-skating is intended to challenge and engage the physical, mental and emotional resources of the participant. The Holiday Animals ice rink is made from synthetic ice and produced by Glice, Inc. Despite careful and proper preparation, instruction, medical advice, conditioning and equipment, there is still a risk of serious injury, including but not limited to head injury, neck or back injury, wrist and ankle fractures, and other orthopedic injuries to limbs and joints. Individuals who have a history of these problems should seek the advice of their physician BEFORE engaging in activities that may aggravate pre-existing problems.
It is impossible to foresee all hazards and dangers. The very nature of ice-skating is risky, including but not limited to slip and falls, colliding with other skaters of varying degrees of skill (including being struck from behind), tripping on irregular surfaces, cuts from skate blades, inadequate or defective equipment, ill-fitting skates, failure in supervision or instruction, horseplay, carelessness, poor technique, poor conditioning, rule violations, striking a stationary object, premises defects outside the rink, and all other risks inherent to the sport of ice-skating. In this regard, it must be recognized that it is impossible for the us to guarantee absolute safety.
