- After the time has expired they will be allowed back onto the inflatable Air Park.
- Should they be caught in a second incident they will be given their final warning and told to leave the inflatable Air Park for 10 minutes, again given the reason for their removal and and asked to re watch our Safety Video Briefing again.

The above system is in place for the safety and well being of all of our patrons. It is not there to be abused by any customer. Should our any of our Arena Supervisors feel that the behaviour warrants immediate removal WITHOUT using the full Sin Bin system Stoke Interactive Air Park reserves the right to do so.
No monetary refund or compensation will be given for anyone that has been subject to the Sin Bin system.
The Arena Supervisors word is final on any inappropriate behaviour or bouncing.
