  • 48″ was the height requirement. Best thing ever!!!!!

    Took about an hour total all around

  • How violent is it? Do you shoot people? Or is it more of an “escape” situation where you don’t have to shoot at people?

  • Is this a permanent feature at at the Springs?

    We’re on holiday in Florida December 18 and really hoping to do this with the family

  • I was trying to buy tickets for Dec 30th but can only purchase through Dec 22?

  • Received in response to the question about wheelchair accessibility: “We are most certainly wheelchair accessible for guests that are unable to walk through our experience. Guests may use their own wheelchairs as long as the wheelchair does not exceed 34” (87 cm) in width. Guests using electric conveyance vehicles or scooters may be asked to transfer to a wheelchair that we will have on hand at our experience.”

  • Will our park hopper plus ticket cover the cost of the ticket?

  • Hi Jeffrey,

    SR radio (Sorcerer Radio) made an announcement this morning in reference to your question. They stated that there will be no discounts for Annual Passholders, cast members, or DVC members as of now.

  • Is this an accessible experience for someone who needs an ECV or wheelchair?

  • How long should I will allow him to do this activity?

  • Is there an actual required age limit?
    From a previous comment, I see there’s a required height of 48″ but it is “suggested” age 10 or older.
    I have an 8 & 9 yr old that really want to do this. They are above 48″ high.
    I want to order tickets for the family, but I don’t want to pay for something they won’t be allowed to do.

    • There is a height requirement. They require all guests to be at least 48” tall.

  • Sometimes I think I have the worst luck! I have been so anxious to get the chance to do this since it was announced. Our trip is from the 8th-15th…super bummed out! Maybe they need someone to “test” it on the 15th…you know…for science?!

  • Based on the FAQ from the site linked,

    What are the height & age limits?

    We require all guests to be at least 48″ tall. We also suggest that guests be at least 10 years old or older due to the weight of the gear and some intense content. If a guest is under 18 years old, they will have to have a parent or guardian sign the liability waiver.

  • I see the Tickets are being sold through Atom. Will Annual Passholders and Cast Members be able to get a discount or does everyone pay the General $29.95 cost for the 30min presentation? Thanks

  • Is there any size or age limit? I want to try this with my husband and almost 6 year old for that time.
