Health and Safety Warning: • Please consult a doctor before taking this tour if you are pregnant, elderly, have pre-existing binocular vision abnormalities or psychiatric disorders, or suffer from a heart condition or other serious medical condition. • Some people may experience severe dizziness, seizures, epileptic seizures or blackouts triggered by light flashes or patterns while using the headsets. Such seizures are more common in children and young people under the age of 20. Anyone who has had a seizure, loss of awareness, or other symptom linked to an epileptic condition should consult a doctor before taking the tour • Children under 13 years old are not advised to use the headsets. Parents allowing their children to use the headsets do so at their own risk and are fully responsible for their safety, health and well-being. Use of the headsets could negatively impact hand-eye coordination, balance, and multi-tasking ability. Adults should monitor children closely during and after use of the headsets for any decrease in these abilities. • Please note that the content viewed on the headsets may consist of up to 17 short scenes, each lasting between 2 to 6 minutes with breaks of between 5 to 15 minutes. You are instructed to stand still while viewing the content on the headsets, and walking around is prohibited. • A comfortable tour experience using your headset requires an unimpaired sense of motion and balance. Using the headsets when you are tired, need sleep, are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, are hung-over, have digestive problems, are under emotional stress or anxiety, or when suffering from cold, flu, headaches, migraines or ear ache, increases your susceptibility to adverse symptoms. • Listening to sound at high volumes can cause irreparable damage to your hearing. Background noise, as well as continued exposure to high volume levels, can make sounds seem quieter than they actually are. Due to the immersive nature of the headsets used, do not have the sound at a high volume so that you can maintain awareness of your surroundings and reduce the risk of hearing damage.
