Know Before You Go

Be prepared for inspection as you enter the facility. The inspection will include the use of metal detectors. Please remove everything from your pockets and have all zippers and pouches on bags open and ready for inspection. Should you bring a bag, it will be searched and may slow down your entry time.

Bag Policy: Backpacks, duffel bags or bags larger than 12" x 12" x 6" are prohibited. 

While we will do everything in our power to be as quick and efficient as possible, we encourage guests to please arrive well in advance of the scheduled event start time in order to allow ample time to enter the facility.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work to create a safe environment inside the Chiles Center.
