Yes, All volunteers are required to attend on of the following volunteer orientation meetings:
The meeting will prepare volunteers for their duties, as well as give specific information on how the event will run and what will be expected of volunteers.
We set our arrival time for participating volunteers at 5:30 p.m. the night/nights you are scheduled to volunteer.
We must set arrival time in order to sign-in all participants, give them their assignments/instructions, and also place the actor and educate them on their surroundings (Haunted trail volunteers will be in a wooded environment).
We are open RAIN OR SHINE.
Scheduled time of line closing (time which we close the gate, not the queue line) is as follows: Friday and Saturday ticket sales will quit at 9:15pm. Volunteers need to arrive no later than 5:30pm until at least 10:30pm, but possibly as late as 12:00am depending on how busy we may be on that night.
If an actor must leave early, they must inform the Park Superintendent BEFORE they are assigned an acting spot for the evening. If the Park Superintendent is not informed prior to assignment the volunteer must stay for the remainder of the evening.
We do not permit the usage of cell phones and other mobile communication devices during volunteer times. All cell phones etc. must be turned off (Not on vibrate or silent mode). If there is an issue that a cell phone must remain on during participation, please notify the Park Superintendent prior to participation.
All volunteers must be age 12 or older to volunteer on the haunted trail, as face painters, make-up artist, and walking sticks. All parking attendants and inflatable attendants must be 17 or older. All student volunteers under the age of 18 years old must have Student Volunteer Permission Slip signed by a parent or legal guardian before volunteering. No exceptions.
Trail actors can dress in any costume or makeup of their own choice, unless given a specific assignment, and dress to the season. WEAR LAYERS!! If you get hot you can always take a layer off, but if you get cold, you will be cold all night. Closed toe shoes recommended. Parking attendants will be provided a safety vest and flashlight.

Yes, volunteers will have an opportunity to select an area scene/area during the volunteer orientation. Spots are assigned first come first serve.
Upon injury, an incident report is taken, the parents or legal guardian of the person injured will be notified, the Park Superintendent will be notified, and in serious situations the ambulance service will be notified. Each situation varies depending on nature of injury. Park Rangers staff our event.
Upon completion of service, the volunteers must see the volunteer coordinator. They will be given a personalized form, which will be recognized as community service verification.
Any infraction of the rules will cause immediate disqualification of the participant. We have set rules, which are set in place for the safety of our volunteers and our patrons. In most cases, the volunteer will be taken to the maintenance shop for the remainder of the night at which that point the volunteer will be asked to leave the property. No volunteer hours will be granted for rule infractions.
We do use disorienting lights (strobes, etc.), which could induce a seizure. We also use fog, which could induce an asthma attack, and have confined spaced which could cause a claustrophobic episode. Please make your volunteers aware of these issues.
