About this event



This access statement does not contain personal opinions as to our suitability for those with access needs, but aims to accurately describe the facilities and services that we offer all our guests/visitors. Access Statement for Scare Asylum Introduction Scare Asylum is a scare maze attraction based within Raze the Roof indoor soft play centre in Penryn, Cornwall. The site is all on one level and accessible, however due to the scare maze being on the 1st floor it is not suitable for wheelchairs. Access to the scare maze depends on an individual’s mobility requirements – please contact us in advance to see if we can accommodate you. Wheelchair users are welcome on site at a concessionary rate and can access the VR and bar areas. The event takes place at night with artificial lighting provided to aid navigation and emergency lighting installed over most of the site in case of emergency. All staff carry torches. Visitors with vision and / or hearing impairments are welcome on site and may access the scare maze; although Guide dogs are not allowed in the maze (A carer or staff member (arranged in advance) may accompany the customer through the maze). You should allow at least 1-2 hours for your visit. To discuss your individual needs and requirements please do contact us in advance and we will do our best to accommodate you at the event. We look forward to welcoming you.
