AREA42 - Club Policies
Hospitality, Integrity, and Excellence are core values which are very important to us. When welcoming you, our member, we want to make sure our relationship starts out right, and you are aware of some key facts designed to provide for the safe and enjoyable use of our facilities by you and your guest(s). These policies and guidelines apply to your conduct at AREA42, which includes access to our clubs, amenities, all outdoor areas, including parking lots, sidewalks (collectively, “premises”), or any use of AREA42’s online, mobile, or interactive offerings or websites. They also apply to your conduct during programs, activities, or events sponsored by AREA42.
These policies and guidelines supplement those posted or otherwise provided in our clubs, on our web or mobile sites, or at our events. We may adopt guidelines applicable to a single club. In some instances, governmental laws may establish different requirements applicable to certain clubs that may not be outlined here. To the extent of a conflict with other guidelines, the more restrictive guideline applies.
Hours and days of usage shall be subject to reasonable change(s) at the sole discretion of AREA42. Hours and amenities may vary by location. Please view the specific location of your interest on this website to see our hours and schedules. In order to ensure that AREA42 facilities are properly maintained, AREA42 reserves the right to temporarily close for no more than one week at any time during the year. AREA42 may be closed on legal holidays and for certain promotions.
AREA42 is a “geek” club. Though children are welcome, AREA42 was not designed with children in mind. Parents must be aware that many of our games feature adult content, and members are not required to censor themselves. Since AREA42 does permit the consumption of alcohol, we are more an adult-type atmosphere.
In order to bring and/or consume alcohol at AREA42, you must be 21 or older and provide proof in the form of a valid identification card (issued by a state governmental agency containing your photograph, date of birth, height, gender, and color of eyes). AREA42 will not accept forms of identification that are expired, cracked, damaged, or altered in any way.
MEMBERSHIP and CHECK-IN
Membership Card and Guest Pass must be presented upon entry into AREA42. Memberships can be purchased online or onsite. AREA42 staff reserve the right to require a second form of identification with current picture (i.e., driver’s license, state identification, etc.). AREA42 may require that we take a picture of you to help make the check-in process quicker, easier, and to help us protect our members.

Although we do our agreement signatures, electronically, you can read a paper copy of agreement before signing. Please ensure you get a printed copy of your signed agreement before you enroll. You may find the most recent version of these policies and guidelines at . As a member or guest of AREA42, you are responsible to review and comply with these policies and guidelines at all times. For questions, please contact Staff Member or General Manager. There is an annual fee that we bill once per year. The bill date is dependent upon when you get started with us and your agreement will have these details.
We are working to afford our members the option of purchasing monthly, semi-annual, and annual memberships. Through this option, you will be automatically billed through a billing company. Until then, memberships can be purchased at our facility.
Some of our service agreements have an obligation period where you are committing to the service relationship for more than just 30 days, please see your agreement for details.
Late fees are assessed for any past dues. Please keep your billing information with us updated to minimize this from happening. We will need working billing information at least a week prior to your billing date. You can update your information with us at the facility or by contacting our customer service team (see Contact Us page).
We are sad to see you go and hope you will return. Our goal is to make sure we finish the relationship correctly, so we do require 30 days written notice for your protection and ours. Please see the Contact Us page for a link to accomplish this.
