I-X Center implements new safety policy for Indoor Amusement Park

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The annual Indoor Amusement Park at the I-X Center kicks off Friday, with stricter security protocols in place following several violent incidents at the attraction last year.

Security officials say they will be enforcing policies and introducing a new family-friendly setting. This year's biggest security change is a new curfew rule.

After 5:00 pm, everyone under the age of 18 is required to be accompanied by a parent or parental chaperone to enter the Amusement Park. Proof of ID required.

The security presence will also be enforcing a customer dress code. Guests must wear appropriate clothing, including shirts, skirts, pants, and shoes. The park officials reserve the right to exclude visitors who do not follow the dress code.

Examples of unacceptable attire include:

  • All gang related items on clothing or person, costumes and disguises that conceal identity are prohibited.
  • Baseball caps are to be worn bill forward.
  • No skull caps, do rags, hoods or improperly worn clothing are permitted.

Last year, police rushed to the I-X Center after a brawl broke out between park attendants.
