COWABUNGA’S MANCHESTER, LLC & COWABUNGA’S ENTERTAINMENT, LLC MEMBERSHIP TERMS AND CONDITIONS, RULES, ACKNOWLEDGMENT, ASSUMPTION OF RISK, RELEASE, WAIVER OF LIABILITY, INDEMNIFICATION, AND HOLD HARMLESS AGREEMENT
THIS IS A LEGALLY BINDING AGREEMENT. BY SIGNING THIS DOCUMENT, YOU ARE WAIVING CERTAIN RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO BRING A LAWSUIT TO RECOVER DAMAGES IF YOU ARE INJURED WHILE PARTICIPATING IN ANY ACTIVITY AT COWABUNGA’S MANCHESTER, LLC & COWABUNGA’S ENTERTAINMENT, LLC. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE SIGNING.
The COWABUNGA’S MANCHESTER, LLC & COWABUNGA’S ENTERTAINMENT, LLC MEMBERSHIP TERMS AND CONDITIONS, RULES, ACKNOWLEDGMENT, ASSUMPTION OF RISK, RELEASE, WAIVER OF LIABILITY, INDEMNIFICATION, AND HOLD HARMLESS AGREEMENT (“Agreement”) govern the Cowabunga’s Manchester, LLC & Cowabunga’s Entertainment, LLC Membership Program. Purchase or use of the Cowabunga’s Membership (“Membership”) at any time subjects the purchaser and designated minor children (“you,” “your,” “yours,” “Member”) to the provisions of this Agreement, as amended from time to time.
Cowabunga’s Manchester, LLC means Cowabunga’s Entertainment LLC, Cowabunga’s, its members, managers, officers, assigns, principals, any associated persons or companies, the physical premises of all business locations as well as all business and service operations performed on behalf of Cowabunga’s Manchester LLC or Cowabunga’s Entertainment LLC.
Cowabunga’s operates one level of playground membership.
The Cowabunga’s Membership Program entitles the Member up to two hours per day to the Cowabunga’s facilities, during any normal business open play hours as space allows. The facilities are located at 725 Huse Road, Manchester, NH & 265 Main Street in North Reading, MA. Having a membership does not guarantee walk-in admission and will be based on availability during the timeslot you want. Membership playtime should be reserved online and may be restricted if no available play slots are available.
Normal business open play hours are posted on cowabungas.com. The facility may sell out during certain play slots or be closed at any time and for any reason deemed necessary by Cowabunga’s, at its sole discretion.
Membership in the program does not guarantee that the facility will be open on every day of the month, or does not guarantee that during the times when it is open for open play there will be play slots available. However, if there is availability members do not need to pay an additional fee (beyond what has already been paid to become a Member), to gain admission to the facility strictly for open play.
Membership does NOT allow entry for any special events that require a ticket or entry for events that require an additional fee, unless a ticket is purchased or the entry fee is paid. Ticketed special events include, but are not limited to, Special Photo Events, Character Meet and Greets and/or Breakfasts, Holiday Events or designated events that have an additional ticket or fee for participation.
Membership period is a 30-day period. To remain active, Membership must be paid on or prior to the start of the subsequent 30-day period.
(1) For designated special events where tickets are being sold, Members may be granted a discount off the general admission ticketed price. Whether any discount is offered and the amount of the discount is at the sole discretion of Cowabunga’s.
(2) Weekly events that have an additional fee for participation may have a discounted price for Members listed when those events are for sale. Whether any discount is offered and the amount of the discount is at the sole discretion of Cowabunga’s.
(5) Members may be granted a 10% discount off of the base price of a Cowabunga’s birthday party package. A Member must have completed 2 full months of playground membership to receive this benefit. Whether any discount is offered and the amount of the discount is at the sole discretion of Cowabunga’s.
Cowabunga’s reserves the right to cancel any event, class, open play period or planned playground function, for any reason. Members are not entitled to any membership fee refund in the event of an event, class, open play period or planned playground function cancellation, except for a refund of a separately purchased ticket or tuition fee.
In order to exercise the rights of Membership, the Membership account must be paid, active and in good standing at the time of visit, event ticket purchase, or class enrollment. Memberships are for individual use only and are non-transferable.
Memberships are automatically set to auto-renew (Automatic Recurring Membership) upon enrollment.
Cowabunga’s is not responsible for any unauthorized use of a Membership. Cowabunga’s reserves the right to revoke and restrict Membership to any person for any reason, including, but not limited to, failure to follow the Playground Rules and Requirements, misconduct, misuse, or abuse of membership privileges. No refunds will be issued.
Members agree to submit and maintain accurate and current user information in connection with their Membership. Such information includes name, address, email address, and telephone number. Members can change their account information by visiting the Cowabunga’s facility and speaking with an employee.
The current monthly Membership Fee can be found at cowabungas.com/membership. Additional children enrolled under the same membership must be siblings.
The monthly Membership Fee does not include applicable taxes and is subject to taxation in accordance with applicable federal or state law.
We may change the Membership fee at any time, but the new Membership Fee will apply to newly enrolled Memberships. Existing members will maintain the Membership Fee they have at the time this membership agreement is executed, provided their account remains active and in good standing. Existing members that wish to receive any additional benefits granted by a newly updated Membership Terms and Conditions must accept and agree to any membership fee or program changes. Continued use of our program indicates acceptance of any changes. Any lapse in Membership and subsequent re-enrollment will be charged at the then-active Membership Fee rate.
Membership fees are not refundable once the Membership period has begun. Once billed, members are afforded use of the facility and program benefits for the 30-day period encompassing the renewal term.
TERM; AUTOMATIC RECURRING BILLING
The Membership term is one 30-day period, beginning on the date of purchase. A Renewal or Automatic Recurring Renewal within a current Membership term extends the existing expiration date of the Membership an additional 30-day period; such renewal term begins the day after the current term ends. When an expired Membership is renewed, the new Membership term is one 30-day period, beginning on the date of renewal.
Each Membership will automatically renew (“Automatic Recurring Membership”) each month for additional 30-day periods that commence on the day after the previous term ends unless, (i) you cancel your Membership, or (ii) we terminate your Membership.
By signing this agreement, Member acknowledges and agrees to participate in the Automatic Recurring Membership program. Automatic Recurring Membership fees will be billed monthly and automatically to the credit card you provide when you enroll in the Membership program or the form of payment we currently have on file for you, in the amount of the Membership fee, approximately one day prior to your Membership expiration date.
You may elect to discontinue Membership by contacting us in writing at email@example.com to cancel your membership. Member agrees to automatic payment processing via our credit card processor, which are used to process regular and automatic payments. Cowabunga’s does not store credit card information. All credit card transactions are processed by our credit card vendor.
CANCELLATION AND TERMINATION
You have the right to cancel your Membership at any time. If you cancel your Membership, no prorated refunds will be given, and the Member will be entitled to utilize the facility for the remainder of the current term of the Membership.
You may cancel your Membership by contacting us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your cancellation request, in writing.
We may terminate your Membership, including any associated accounts, without notice, for any reason at our sole discretion. This includes, without limitation, our belief that continued use of such Membership would violate any provisions of this Agreement, applicable law, or otherwise be harmful to our interests. In the event of any such termination, you will not be entitled to a refund of your Membership Fee.
In the event of our termination of the Cowabunga’s Membership Program, at our election, we will either maintain your Membership benefits until the expiration of the Membership current term or refund each Member a pro rata portion of the Membership Fee for the remaining portion of the current Membership term.

ACKNOWLEDGMENT AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK RELATED TO CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) AND COMMUNICABLE DISEASES
The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people. Other communicable diseases, such as common colds, seasonal flu, hand, foot and mouth disease, and many others, are also believed to spread from (1) proximity to, (2) person-to-person contact, and/or (3) contact with surfaces that have come into contact with an infected individual. Cowabunga’s has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and other communicable diseases; however, Cowabunga’s cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19 or any other communicable disease or illness. Further, attendance at Cowabunga’s could increase your risk and your child(ren)’s risk of contracting COVID-19 or any other communicable disease or illness.

By signing this agreement, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that my child(ren) and I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 or any other communicable disease or illness by attending Cowabunga’s and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 or other communicable diseases or illnesses at Cowabunga’s may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, Cowabunga’s employees, volunteers, and other playground guests participants and their families.

It is my express intent that this agreement shall bind the members of my family and spouse, if I am alive, and my heirs, assigns and personal representative, if I am deceased, and shall be deemed as a Release, Waiver, Discharge and Covenant Not to Sue the above named Releasees. I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to my child(ren) or myself (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I or my child(ren) may experience or incur in connection with my child(ren)’s attendance at Cowabunga’s or participation in any of the Releasees sponsored activity. On my behalf, and on behalf of my children, or the children I am guardian of, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless the Releasees, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating thereto.
