2. Damaged Caused by Me. I assume and bear all risk and costs of any injury or damage I may cause or that my child (or children) may cause to other persons or property as a result of participation in the Activity. I also agree to reimburse EIYC at full retail value for any loss or damage of any kind that I cause or my child (or children) cause to the EIYC facilities or equipment, other than normal and expected wear and tear.
3. Attorney Fees/Venue/Waiver of Jury Trial. I agree that if EIYC is required to enforce this agreement, or to defend against an action brought by me or on behalf of my child (or children), or to defend an action brought against EIYC by third parties for damages caused by me or my child (or children), I will indemnify EIYC against, and hold EIYC harmless from the same, and I will reimburse EIYC for all related attorney fees and costs, including fees and costs through appeal and bankruptcy. I agree that any legal proceedings I institute against EIYC must be brought only in Pinellas County, Florida, and that the law of Florida will govern any such proceedings.

Simulated confinement is an inherent part of the Activity, and does not constitute actual confinement, or restriction of my movement or freedom. If I allow the staff to handcuff me for a particular room (Kidnapped) I am consenting and allowing them to do so under my free will. I understand I can ask the staff to remove the handcuffs at anytime I wish. I also understand I can refuse the handcuffs as well and do the room without them.
