Why do you insist my child holds my hand and remains by my side at all times?

We insist that all children are accompanied by an adult and kept very close by your side due to the risk of injury to your children. We do not take responsibility if your child gets bitten or scratched by a terrapin. There is also a chance that a young child could be spooked or trip over and fall into the pond so keeping them close and safe is something that must be strictly enforced. If you do not follow our rules we will deny you entry into the enclosure.
