Will the actors touch us, or can we touch the actors?
The actors will not physically grab at you or restrain you, but you could be inadvertently touched or brushed up against due to the close proximity to the actors. PLEASE DO NOT PURPOSELY TOUCH THEM OR RESTRAIN THEM IN ANY WAY. Physical contact with our actors and staff could result in expulsion from the trail.

If you get too scared, stay calm and tell the actor in the room and they will escort you outside. Please note, like sporting events and large attractions, we do not give refunds.

As far as live creatures go, there are many life­like creatures throughout PsychoPath. If there are real animals, they will be handled by professionals.

Pregnant women are welcome to go through PsychoPath, but if you are worried we suggest calling your OBGYN and/or Physician to discuss the situation with them.
