Site policies

 

Smoking - We are a NON-SMOKING facility. Smoking of tobacco or cannabis  is only permitted in designated areas outside of the gates.

Pets - Guest pets are not permitted on the grounds with the exception of guide dogs or registered helper dogs - with written permission of management. 

Visitors - Visitors who are not registered as guests (accommodation, feasts, or other events) are not permitted on the grounds unless previously arranged. Visitors may be permitted on site if accompanied by a registered guest for a short visit, but may not participate in activities.  An activity day-pass may be purchased on-line or at the gate from a Good Knights' staff member for a set fee. All additional visitors are required to sign in so we have an accurate record of all guests on site in the case of an emergency.

Camping - No camping or personal tents. There is no camping allowed outside the gates, in the parking lot, or grassy areas, and all guest RVs must not be occupied at night.

Alcohol - Guests are allowed to bring alcohol onto the site and consume it (responsibly)  in or around their unit (i.e. tents, caravans, or burrow). Drunkenness and associated dangerous or rude behavior will not be tolerated. Our feast halls are licensed facilities and therefore outside liquor is prohibited. We operate a cash bar at all feasts - serving beer, wine, and mead.

Vehicles - Guest vehicles are not permitted inside of the gates of the park. Exceptions may be made by the management for invalids and for group bookings or special events.

Respect and Courtesy - We expect that all guests will act courteously towards their fellow quests. This is a shared environment and the conduct of each guest affects all other, and therefore is a shared responsibility. Guests who do not abide by this may be asked to leave with no refund or recourse.

Quiet time is between 11 PM and 7 AM. All guests are expected to respect this and the needs of guests to their own peace and quiet during this period.

Guest Safety - The safety of guests is of paramount concern to Good Knights Entertainment Ltd.  as it affects all other aspects. Circumstances and behaviour that are considered unsafe by the management and staff will not be tolerated and will be dealt with as a highest priority to ensure the safety of all guests. Unsafe use of weapons, fires, violence, verbal assault, or severe drunkenness will immediately be acted upon and could result in the immediate removal of the person or persons involved from the activity or from the site - without recourse or compensation. In some severe cases the police may be called to assist. Management reserves the right to remove or even permanently ban from the venue those responsible.

Accidents - All accident and injuries must be reported to a staff member as soon as possible. The staff member will assess the situation and take the appropriate action. All incidents will be recorded for future reference.

Campfires - All fires must be kept to the fire receptacles provided and be kept under control and maintained in a safe and manageable state. Guests are required to extinguish all fires or cover them with the provided screen prior to abandoning the fire. In addition, all guests must respect and obey any fire bans that county or provincial authorities declare from time to time.

Open Flames - The burning of candles and incense is not allowed in any tent or in close proximity to any tent or awning. Mosquito coils can be burned but only outside of the tent. As noted above, smoking is not allowed in any tent or building or on the site in general - except in areas designated for this purpose by the management.

Emergencies - Good Knights Entertainment Ltd has established policies for safe and orderly evacuation of guests in the event of an emergency. The protocol is to assess the risk and act to ensure guest comfort and safety in the case of fire, floods, or severe weather, or other emergencies. Staff members will assess the situation and inform guests of the appropriate action - inform, shelter-in-place, lock-down, or evacuate.

Private Weapons - Guests may bring private weapons, such as knives, swords, or archery equipment onto the site, subject to the inspection and approval of a staff member - and subject to proper care and use. Under no circumstances are firearms to be brought onto or discharged on the site by guests. All guest archery equipment must be securely stored in the locked archery shed (or in the guest vehicle) and must be inspected and approved by staff for use in supervised archery classes. Weapons being used in an unsafe manner (i.e. putting themselves, other guests, or staff at risk) will be confiscated and returned to the owner or responsible adult on departure.

Drones - the use of drones by guests on the site is prohibited. Special written permission may be granted in writing by the management or owners of Good Knights for limited use - under certain conditions such as the length of time and areas allowed to be operated.
