If any guest in breach of any of these Entry Conditions is a member of a group, then such group of individuals may also, at Teamworks’ discretion, be denied entry or escorted from the Circuit without any right to a refund.
All persons must remain behind the safety barriers at all times unless directed by a member of Teamworks’ staff. Behaviour likely to cause danger or annoyance to other persons is not permitted in any part of the Circuit. Smoking (including of e-cigarettes) is prohibited within the building.
