TOTAL NINJA PARTICIPATION WAIVER
Total Ninja (operated by Total Ninja BRP Limited, Total Ninja Stoneridge Limited, Total Ninja Northgate Limited and Total Ninja Kolonnade Limited) Safety Agreement and Terms & Conditions of Participation, hereafter referred to as the PARTICIPANT AGREEMENT.
At Total Ninja we take your health and safety seriously. We wish to highlight that any of the activities available can be potentially hazardous physical activities and that participation can lead to a risk of injury and even death.
I, the Participant or Parent/Guardian of Participant(s), confirm as follows:
1. I understand and accept that in participating in activities at Total Ninja that there is an element of danger and risk of physical or emotional injury, paralysis, death, or damage to me, to property or to third parties including participant(s) and others and consequently the participant(s) is/are to undertake to use Total Ninja equipment and facilities (the “Facilities”) and to conduct themselves while on Total Ninja’s premises, in a sensible and responsible manner and in compliance with all notices, instructions and directions as published or displayed from time to time and in compliance with any instruction given to the participant(s) by an authorised person in Total Ninja’s control. I understand that such risks simply cannot be eliminated without jeopardising the essential qualities of the activity.
The risks include, among other things and without limitation:
Risk of cuts and bruises. Other more serious risks exist as well. Due to the nature of the activities, there is a risk that participants may fall off equipment, and sustain sprains or breaks, or could suffer more serious injuries. Transitioning between obstacles carries the possibility of any manner of accidents. Similar risks are also inherent in Jump Towers or Air Bags.
2. I expressly agree and promise to accept and assume all the risks existing in this activity. My participation in this activity is purely voluntary, and I elect to participate despite the risks. I warrant that I will only undertake obstacles and challenges that are within my ability level and throughout which I will be able to maintain control.
3. I understand that the activities provided by Total Ninja require a reasonable level of fitness and agility and I warrant that I am fit and able to participate. I also warrant that the participant(s) is/are in a good state of health and free from any injury, medical condition, disease or illness which may be aggravated by participating in activities that makes it dangerous for me to partake in such activities. I expressly agree and promise to accept and assume all of the risks associated with the activities.
Additionally, the participant(s) recognises that such a breach in this term is dangerous or may increase any risk of injury to the participant(s) or others or make more likely that the participant(s) will be involved in an accident which could result in any form injury during the activity.
4. I acknowledge that the activities provided by Total Ninja are not available to pregnant women and that by accepting these terms I confirm that the participant(s) is/are not pregnant.
5. I acknowledge that cosmetic body enhancements including but not limited to false nails, non-removable jewellery and other surgical additions could cause injury to the participant(s) of any activities. Total Ninja strongly advises any participant(s) to remove these if possible before participating or not to participate, as Total Ninja will not be held accountable for any injury caused to the participant(s).
