Your answer
The undersigned has voluntarily elected to use and, if applicable, to allow the minor child(ren) identified above and all minor children under my supervision and referred to individually and collectively herein as “Child,” to use the Whitaker Center facilities and equipment located at 222 Market Street, Harrisburg, PA 17101. In consideration for being allowed to use said facilities and equipment, and any other services provided by Whitaker Center or its employees or agents at said location, or any other location within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, I represent, acknowledge and agree as follows: *
GENERAL RELEASE: I acknowledge and agree that this Agreement covers and is intended to release and provide other benefits, legal protections, and consideration to Whitaker Center and its agents, officers, directors, volunteers, participants, employees, and all other persons or entities acting in any capacity on its respective or collective behalf. *
RELEASE OF POTENTIAL INJURIES: I acknowledge and agree that the use of equipment at Whitaker Center and that participating in physical activities involving interactive exhibits and interaction with other patrons can be dangerous. These risks include serious physical or emotional injury, paralysis, death, damage to myself, the Child, and/or third parties, and damage to personal property of any or all such persons. I understand that such risks simply cannot be eliminated without jeopardizing the essential qualities of the activity, which I further agree is for recreational purposes and completely voluntary. I acknowledge and agree that, while the activities that take place at the Whitaker Center are monitored generally by Whitaker Center employees and volunteers, it is not feasible for such employees and volunteers to monitor the activities and actions of all customers at all times or all customers simultaneously. Furthermore, Whitaker Center employees and volunteers have difficult jobs to perform. They seek safety, but they are not infallible. They might be unaware of a participant’s health or abilities. They may give incomplete warnings or instructions, and the equipment being used might malfunction. *
VOLUNTARY ASSUMPTION OF RISK: I acknowledge and agree that I and the Child are participating voluntarily at our own risk. I acknowledge and agree that the actions or activities of other customers or the actions or inactions of Whitaker Center employees or volunteers could cause me or the Child significant bodily injury (as described in this Agreement), and that Whitaker Center is not responsible for the actions or activities of customers using the Whitaker Center or the negligence of its employees or volunteers in supervising the Whitaker Center or its usage, including actions, activities, or omissions that result in such harm. Some of the risks include, but are not limited to, the following:a) Participants may die or become paralyzed, partially or fully, through their use of the Whitaker Center and participation in activities therein.b) Participants may suffer cuts, scrapes, bumps, bruises, the transmission of disease strains and allergic reactions through use of the Whitaker Center equipment or contact with other participants or surfaces they have contacted. Participants may sprain, pull, break or otherwise seriously externally or internally injure their head, face (including nose and teeth/jaw), neck, torso, spine, arms, wrists, hands, legs, ankles, feet or other body parts as a result of falling or making contact with other participants. As noted in paragraph a) above, such injuries can lead to paralysis, disfigurement or death. Participation may result in heat stroke, heart attacks, dehydration and other exertion-related medical events.c) Observing, standing, sitting or taking photographs at or near any activity can result in similar physical injury (even if the observer is not himself or herself participating at the time). *
AGREEMENT TO PAY MY OWN MEDICAL EXPENSES: I acknowledge, accept, and assume the risk of any and all medical conditions, limitations, or disabilities (whether temporary or permanent) that I or the Child possess, whether known or unknown, which might contribute to or exacerbate any injury I or the Child might sustain as a result of using the Whitaker Center or any of its equipment. I acknowledge and agree that if medical assistance (of any form, including emergency care, hospitalization, out-patient care, and/or physical therapy) is required or performed as a result of any injury I or the Child sustains while using the Whitaker Center, such assistance shall be at my own expense.
RELEASE OF LIABILITY: The Releasing Parties hereby forever, irrevocably and unconditionally release, waive, relinquish, discharge from liability and covenant not to sue Whitaker Center, and its successors, predecessors-in-interest, and insurers (collectively, the“Releasees") from any and all claims, demands, rights, actions, suits, causes of action, obligations, debts, costs, losses, charges, expenses, attorneys’ fees, damages, judgments and liabilities, of whatever kind or nature, in law, equity or otherwise, whether now known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, and whether or not concealed or hidden, related to or arising, directly or indirectly, from my or the Child’s access to and/or use of the Whitaker Center premises and/or its equipment, the Child’s and/or my entry into the Whitaker Center, the condition, maintenance, inspection, supervision, control or security of the Whitaker Center, the failure to warn of dangerous conditions in connection with the Whitaker Center, and/or the acts or omissions of Whitaker Center or any of the Releasees, including, without limitation, any claim for negligence, failure to warn or other omission, property damage, personal injury, emotional injury, illness, bodily harm, paralysis or death. I understand that this release and waiver applies to all equipment and all activities, exhibits and games at Whitaker Center. I understand that this release and waiver applies to and includes all activities that I or my Child engage in at the premises, whether inside or outside the Whitaker Center. In the event that any claim released herein is brought by, or asserted on behalf of, the Releasing Parties, I shall immediately defend, indemnify and hold harmless the Releasees, and any of them, from any loss or liability, including reasonable attorneys' fees, associated therewith or arising therefrom.I understand and fully acknowledge and agree that all of the risks identified herein and any other risks associated with use of the Whitaker Center and its equipment are beyond the control of the Releasees. I agree and acknowledge that should Whitaker Center or any other Releasee or anyone acting on their behalf, be required to incur attorneys' fees and/or costs to enforce this agreement, I agree to immediately defend, indemnify and hold Whitaker Center and any other Releasee or them harmless for and against all such attorneys’ fees and/or costs. *
ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES; TIME LIMIT TO BRING CLAIM: I understand that by agreeing to arbitrate any dispute as set forth in this section, I am waiving my right, and the right(s) of the minor child(ren) above, to maintain a lawsuit against Whitaker Center and the other Releasees for any and all claims covered by this Agreement. By agreeing to arbitrate, I understand that I will NOT have the right to have my claim determined by a jury, and the minor child(ren) above will NOT have the right to have claim(s) determined by a jury.

THE ARBITRATION SHALL BE ADMINISTERED BY JAMS PURSUANT TO ITS RULE 16.1 EXPEDITED ARBITRATION RULES AND PROCEDURES. JUDGMENT ON THE AWARD MAY BE ENTERED IN ANY COURT HAVING JURISDICTION. THIS CLAUSE SHALL NOT PRECLUDE PARTIES FROM SEEKING PROVISIONAL REMEDIES IN AID OF ARBITRATION FROM A COURT OF APPROPRIATE JURISDICTION. This Agreement shall be governed by, construed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, without regard to choice of law principles. Notwithstanding the provision with respect to the applicable substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C., Sec. 1-16). I understand and acknowledge that the JAMS Arbitration Rules to which I agree are available online for my review at jamsadr.com, and include JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures; Rule 16.1 Expedited Procedures; and, Policy On Consumer Minimum Standards Of Procedural Fairness. *
