Updated: Feb 19

Please see our up-to-date ACCESSIBILITY INFORMATION below.


If you have accessibility needs not adequately addressed here, please use the "Contact Us" tab or email us at socalcreatures@gmail.com to let us know! We will do our very best to accommodate you.


PHYSICAL

  • The majority of our venue is ADA compliant, with ramps.

  • The bathroom is ADA compliant to enter, but the stalls are not ADA. This is a pending renovation.

  • There is one (1) clearly marked Handicapped Parking Space by the front door of the venue.

  • Adequate, varied seating options are available - including chairs, couches, and padded floor space.


EMOTIONAL

  • We will have High Energy (the main room) and Low Energy ("Chill Zone" & private rooms) spaces to accommodate different needs and play styles.

  • If you are nervous about attending, please come at the beginning of the event! Our Welcome Wagon Orientation will help you get your bearings, and the start of an event is always more relaxed, which will allow you to settle in.

  • We have Volunteers whose job it is to help you feel welcome and introduce you to new people. Please reach out to any volunteer if you are in need of extra emotional support.


TEMPERATURE

  • Our venue is air-conditioned, well-ventilated, and temperature controlled. You may request that the AC be turned up or down if needed.


AUDITORY

  • Think "dog park with music," not a bar or club.

  • Music plays from speakers in the main room, of moderate volume.

  • The Open Mosh Area in the large main room tends to be filled with barking, howling, and other human animal sounds. The Outdoor Kitchen will likely include low-to-moderate volume with overlapping chatter.

  • The Forest Room includes ambient forest noise (birds chirping, wolves howling, rain, wind, etc) at a minimal volume. You may request that this be turned off during a scene.

  • We have a quiet "chill zone" room where you can seek refuge if you become overwhelmed for any reason.

  • We will have free disposable ear plugs in every room (where the hand sanitizer, band aids, wet wipes, etc. are located).


SCENT

  • Attendees and staff are asked to arrive low or scent free.

  • The Forest Room includes a very light scent from an organic pine essential oil diffuser.


VISUAL CONDITIONS

  • We will NOT have any flashing lights. This is an epilepsy-friendly event.

  • Our spaces have low-to-moderate fluorescent lighting. Some rooms have additional mood lighting such as Christmas lights and fairy lights.

  • **Note for Pawliday Mosh** There will be more Christmas-style lights than usual at this event. Expect Christmas lights in the main room, and some of the individual rooms. We will not put that style of light in the Low Energy room, the Quiet Room, or some of the individual rooms. so that there are points of refuge.


OTHER

  • Individually-wrapped snacks & water are available in the outdoor kitchen.

  • We are asking that attendees arrive low-scent/scent-free.

  • If you have a Personal Aide or ASL Interpreter you would like to attend with you, they are welcome to attend at no charge. Email us at socalcreatures@gmail.com for a special promo code.
