To Guests Accompanied by Small Children:
Yo-Yo competition and practice is taking place within the venue. In other words, a sport in which yo-yos made of metal, spinning at high speeds and carefully controlled by competitors is taking place. These competitors have, in most cases, many years of experience and the case that they may make a careless mistake which may harm another person is unlikely. However, if small children suddenly approach these competitors while they are practicing, there is a risk that they may collide with a fast-spinning yo-yo. In order to limit the risk of accidents, we ask that you please accompany your small children at all times. In the case that an accident is caused by the actions of your child, you may be asked to leave the venue. We kindly ask for your understanding of this important issue.
