  • Costumes must be family-friendly and may not be obstructive, offensive, objectionable or violent.
  • Costumes may not contain any weapons or articles that resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.
  • Costumes may not contain sharp objects, pointed objects or materials that may accidentally strike another guest.
  • Layered costumes or costume props that surround the entire body are strongly discouraged.
  • Costumes may not reach or drag on the ground (e.g., full-length witch costume)

For Guests Ages 16 and Under

  • Costumes and masks may be worn, as long the mask does not cover the entire face and eyes are visible.

For Guests Ages 17 and Older

  • Themed T-shirts, blouses, sweatshirts and hats are acceptable.
  • Acceptable accessories include: transparent wings, plastic light sabers, toy swords and tutus.
  • Masks of any kind may not be worn, except for medical purposes.

Guests who do not adhere to these guidelines may be refused entry into, and/or removed from, the event, unless his or her costume can be modified to meet the above standards.
