Terms and Conditions
Submitting an application for a paranormal night indicates that you have read, understood and agree to the terms and conditions listed below. Please read the terms and conditions carefully, then check the box at the end and click agree to continue with the reservations process.
Submitting an application is a request
for a date and the number of slots indicated in the application. Your spots are
not guaranteed until your application has been accepted by Point Lookout
Lighthouse Preservation Society (PLLPS) and payment has been made in full. PLLPS will notify you in writing once your
application has been accepted. Full payment must be made within 15 days of
notification of acceptance of your application. Failure to make full payment within
15 days will result in your spot being forfeited and given to the next
Each investigation has 10 available
spots for participants. If your group includes less than 10 individuals, your
group will be paired with other groups until the maximum number of participants
is reached. If your group is comprised of less than 10 participants, you may
reserve and pay for all 10 spaces to ensure that no additional participants
will be present. PLLPS cannot be responsible for conflict between participants.
All participants are required to act with respect towards other participants.
Any actions which are deemed to be harassing, threatening, derogatory or
unnecessarily disruptive will result in expulsion from the event without
refund. The PLLPS volunteer on duty will make the final determination on
whether any action merits expulsion.
Complaints procedure: Any problems or
complaints experienced during the event must be brought to the attention of the
volunteer on duty at the time the issue occurs. If you are unable to speak to
the volunteer during the event, you must talk to the volunteer on duty prior to
leaving the premises. After bringing your concerns to the volunteer
coordinator, you must follow up by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org within 24 hours
of the end of the investigation so the issue can be investigated by the event
coordinator. All details will be kept confidential. Any issues raised after 24 hours will not be addressed. You
must inform the volunteer on duty of any issues at the event.
No alcohol is permitted at Point
Lookout State Park. Anyone who is believed to be under the influence of drugs
or alcohol at anytime during the event will be asked to leave without refund.
The volunteer on duty will make this final call and may involve the Maryland
State Natural Resources Police (NRP).
Investigations are designed for and
may only be reserved by people 18 and older. Children 16-18 years of age will
be permitted with an adult. No one under the age of 16 will be permitted on the
premises during the event. Proof of age may be required upon request and no
refunds will be issued for anyone asked to leave due to age ineligibility.
Cancellations by you: All reservations
are non-refundable. In the event of a cancellation due to unforeseen
circumstances within 45 days of the event, PLLPS will attempt a reschedule if
availability exists. Cancellations within 45 days may not be rescheduled. Reservations may be transferred by notifying
the event coordinator.
Cancellations by us: Events may be
cancelled due to inclement weather, damage to the structure or other incidents
at the event location or in the surrounding park. The Point floods quickly during heavy rains
or unusually high tides and may be inaccessible. Events cancelled due to any of
the above will be rare, and PLLPS will give as much advanced notice of
cancellation as possible. PLLPS cannot be responsible for any losses due to
cancellations, including but not limited to hotel costs, travel expenses, etc.
PLLPS will work very closely with participants to reschedule events as soon as
Certain areas of the lighthouse may be
off limits due to weather or other hazards. The coal and buoy sheds are always
off limits due to hazardous conditions. The lighthouse basement is periodically
closed due to heavy rains or other water events due to frequent flooding. The
attic area is suitable for some equipment but not for human weight.
Due to the age of the structure, those
with mobility impairments may find the structure or parts of the structure
inaccessible. Please contact PLLPS in advance to discuss any concerns prior to
submitting an application.
PLLPS will not be held responsible for
any equipment, personal property, vehicles, valuables or persons brought to the event.
Participants are reminded that no equipment is provided by PLLPS and are
encouraged to bring their own. Equipment may not be used in such a way as to
cause damage to the property. Nothing may be attached to or affixed on the
structure, temporarily or permanently. Point Lookout Lighthouse does have electricity, however it is in limited supply with limited
outlets available throughout the lighthouse. There is neither heat nor air
conditioning at the structure.
There is no water at the lighthouse
compound. There are state park bathrooms (standard bathrooms or port-a-johns,
depending on the season) within one quarter mile of the structure.
Participants are not permitted to have
any flame on the property including but not limited to smoking, candles,
incense or smudge sticks. Smoking will be permitted outside the structure and
away from doorways.
Point Lookout is a state park. As
such, ambient noise or lights from other park users in close proximity is to be
expected, especially by fishermen. Disruption from other park users will not be
sufficient cause for a refund.
There will be no sleeping on site at
the lighthouse structure. Campsites and cabins are available for rent through
the state park for a nominal fee. PLLPS encourages participants to consider
their level of tiredness and the hour of the event; obtaining overnight accommodations is
recommended to avoid late night driving when excessively tired. PLLPS will not
be held liable for accidents before, during or after the event.
No food or drink will be available or
provided. Participants are encouraged to bring their refreshments. Participants
must clean up after themselves and participants are required to take all trash
with them at the end of the night.
Participants should dress for the
weather and wear closed toed shoes. Participants should carry a flashlight as
events are generally carried out in near or complete darkness. The weather at the point can be unpredictable,
and may be cooler or windier than expected.
All participants are required to sign
a park service outdoor adventure liability waiver prior to the event.
PLLPS reserves the right to refuse any
reservation for any reason whatsoever.
19. PLLPS volunteers are onsite to open the lighthouse and provide an overview of the structure. Volunteers do not lead investigations or operate equipment for participants. Paranormal nights are self-led events. Be open-minded and have fun!
