Your family's safety and security are our highest priorities. Adults must be accompanied by a child on the exhibit floor, and children must be accompanied by an adult on the exhibit floor. Security cameras, electronic access controls, and security personnel are in place at all times. Guest Experience staff are always here to assist you. We require one adult for every five children. No security can take the place of adult supervision. Remember to have fun with and supervise your children.
