If one child is not allowed to play due to an age restriction on a game, we will not allow any of the children to play the games.

It is the party organiser’s responsibility to ensure that parental consent is obtained from all parents/guardians of party guests to play age related games.

In the event of an out of age game being requested Essex Gaming Bus will ask the organiser for a final decision to be made. We cannot be held responsible in any way for obtaining the permission of the guest’s parents/guardians.

We have many games preloaded onto the the console to cater for all age ranges. We can not be held responsible if the children start to play games out of their age range. However, we will do our upmost to monitor the children so they do not play games that are not suitable for their age.
