By purchasing, booking, redeeming, or participating in a Great American Days Experience or by accessing, browsing and using www.GreatAmericanDays.com (the “Website”) you agree to be subject to the following Terms and Conditions.
As used in these Terms and Conditions, the terms “we” and “Great American Days” refer to Great American Days, Inc, a Virginia company. The terms “you”, and “user” refer to any person who purchases, books, redeems, participates in, or otherwise uses an Experience.
In consideration of your participation in an Experience, you represent that you are of legal age to form a binding contract and are not a person barred from receiving services under the laws of the United States or other applicable jurisdiction.
Great American Days reserves the right to change these Terms and Conditions at any time without prior notice. All changes to these Terms and Conditions will be posted on the Website.
Great American Days offers two main types of certificate; an Experience Certificate that can be redeemed against a specific activity or group of related activities and a Gift Certificate that can be redeemed against our entire range of activities. Each certificate has a unique reference which must be quoted when dealing with Great American Days. All certificates and the associated references must be kept safely and securely. Great American Days will take no responsibility for any loss you may incur as a result of a certificate or certificate reference being stolen and impersonation or identity theft.
Experience Certificates can be redeemed for the specific Experience associated with the Experience Certificate. Details of the Experience will be included in the gift pack or email that accompanied the Experience Certificate. Experience Certificates are not issued with a specified monetary value. An Experience Certificate cannot be redeemed for cash and is not a gift certificate, gift card or prepaid store card.
Experience Certificates are valid for one (1) year from the date of purchase except where otherwise stated by law. You must schedule your Experience before the expiration date, which is clearly stated on the Experience Certificate. However, please note, if you schedule an Experience for a date after your expiration date, you will be responsible for any difference in retail price caused by price increases, relating to the Experience, that have occurred since the Experience Certificate’s date of purchase.
Gift Certificates can only be redeemed for Experiences through Great American Days, and cannot be redeemed or exchanged for services with any other entity. Gift Certificates cannot be redeemed or exchanged for cash and do not store any amount electronically nor can any value be electronically added or subtracted to a Great American Days Gift Certificate.

When you redeem or book an Experience, you authorize Great American Days to facilitate reservations on your behalf with any third parties with whom Great American Days has contracted to provide the Experience (“Experience Supplier”), including making payment arrangements on your behalf with the Experience Supplier. Experience Suppliers have their own terms and conditions. In order to participate in an Experience, participants will be required to accept the Experience Supplier's terms and conditions. Participants may also be required to sign an acceptance form or a waiver by the Experience Supplier and will be informed of this when they make a booking or by the Experience Supplier at the time of the Experience. The relevant Experience Supplier’s terms and conditions are included in the gift pack accompanying the Experience Certificate and are available on the Website or by calling 1.866.987.9876.
To book an Experience, contact Great American Days via the Website or via phone at 1.866.987.9876 or through any of our marketing partners as directed. You must provide the Certificate Reference. Once Great American Days confirms that the Certificate is active, you will select or confirm your Experience and select a location and preferred dates. When scheduling an Experience you must make sure that all participants are able to meet the stated physical and other requirements associated with the Experience. Please make sure that you read the Experience Supplier’s terms and conditions taking particular attention of the Experience Supplier’s cancellation policy.
Great American Days is your booking agent to schedule and make payment on your behalf to the Experience Supplier. Once Great American Days schedules the Experience with the Experience Supplier, Great American Days will contact you and provide booking confirmation information including a Booking Confirmation Number. You must present the Booking Confirmation Number to the Experience Supplier on the date of your Experience in order to participate in the Experience. Redemption and/or participation in an Experience is conditioned upon your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions and the Experience Supplier’s terms and conditions that apply to your specific Experience. Great American Days is not responsible for any additional terms, conditions, requirements, restrictions, waivers, guidelines, rules or other obligations imposed by the Experience Supplier that are not stated in these Terms and Conditions. Experience Suppliers are solely responsible for their health and safety standards and operating practices. Great American Days and/or the Experience Supplier have the right to refuse to provide any Experience or any portion thereof to you or your gift recipient for any reason.
Experience Suppliers are independent contractors of Great American Days and are not agents or employees of Great American Days, its subsidiaries, corporate affiliates, licensors, or licensees. Great American Days makes no warranty, representation, or guarantee regarding the Experience or the Experience Provider, including without limitation the availability, quality, safety, or efficacy of any Experience or Experience Supplier.

However, details of each Experience are subject to change from time to time and may vary among Experience Suppliers and/or locations.
In addition, the Experience Supplier may contact you in order to provide additional information or restrictions about the Experience prior to your scheduled date of participation. It is your responsibility to comply with all necessary requirements of your Experience as set out on the Website or as otherwise provided by Great American Days or the Experience Supplier.

Great American Days is not responsible in any way for any appointments made directly with the Experience Supplier. Bookings must be made in advance. Guidelines and suggestions for advanced booking will vary by Experience and are provided on the Website and during the booking process.
