Home » Business Insurance » Specialized Business Insurance » Adventure and Entertainment Insurance

Your adventure and entertainment business can take many different forms. Maybe you offer ATV tours and ropes courses. Maybe you offer kayaking and ziplining. No matter the activities you offer, there’s one thing your business is sure to have—risk. You need adventure and entertainment insurance that offers coverage for your operation’s unique needs.

You try your best, but sometimes accidents happen.

Helping you protect your participants is important to your business, which is why you have all your safety measures in place, but sometimes accidents happen. From heights to white-water rapids to creepy crawlies lurking in the trees, there are a number of ways your visitors could get hurt. Participant injury insurance can help your adventure and entertainment business cover costs associated with accidents and injuries that happen during your activities.

If you rent out equipment, you may need specific insurance.

Not many people own an ATV, kayak, bicycle, or paddleboard, just to name a few of the items required to experience the fun at your adventure and entertainment business. That’s why you offer to rent them out, but in doing so, you open your equipment up to the possibility of damage or loss. If you want to make sure your equipment is covered when you rent it out, you’ll need renters liability insurance.

Your business is at the mercy of Mother Nature.

When you run an adventure and entertainment business, more often than not, you’re at the mercy of the elements. All it takes is one powerful flood or strong windstorm to put you out of business for hours, days, or even weeks. What happens next depends on your insurance coverage. If you have business interruption insurance, your coverage may be able to cover revenue lost during your period of shutdown, keeping you and your employees afloat during your downtime.

Don’t forget the standard business coverages.

There are some business insurance products you’ll likely need, regardless of your industry. Commercial umbrella insurance offers coverage beyond the limits of some of your other policies. Workers’ compensation insurance is often a legal requirement and helps cover your employees if they’re hurt while on the job. A cyber liability insurance policy offers coverage against the financial losses associated with data breaches.

Renters Liability

Risk Factor

You want everyone to enjoy beauty and fun in your park, but that often means letting visitors rent out your equipment. Whether it’s simple kayaks and paddleboards or more complex ATVs, you’re open to loss, damage, and more when it comes to the equipment you rent out.

Solution

Take stock of the types of equipment you rent out to visitors and the risks for damage they may face. Look into a renters liability policy to cover physical damage to the rented equipment.

Equipment Breakdown

Risk Factor

While your homeowners policy covers a wide array of perils, such as damage caused by a fire or a falling tree, it doesn’t cover some common types of problems that can occur to the equipment in or around your home. For example, a sudden surge from the local power plant might damage appliances, HVAC systems, or your home power generator.

Solution

Add mechanical breakdown coverage to your homeowners policy. If you have multiple homes, it can be purchased for each one individually. Keep in mind that while it does protect against major events, it does not cover normal wear and tear.

Sexual Abuse and Molestation

Risk Factor

There are a lot of situations where you might have to get close to your guests. Whether you’re strapping on safety equipment or rescuing someone that’s fallen in the water, all it takes is one wrong slip of the hand to open your business up to liability. It doesn’t matter if the accusation is true or not, the costs of defending your business could rise quickly.

Solution

Sexual abuse and molestation liability offers coverage against claims of abuse and molestation and can help cover the costs of your business’s defense. Depending on the coverage, it can extend to a range of employees, including volunteers with your organization. In some cases, it may also help cover trainings and other preventative measures.

Workers' Compensation

Risk Factor

If one of your employees receives an injury or becomes ill due to a work-related occurrence, you are required by law to have the proper coverage in place.

Solution

Workers’ compensation protects your employees should a job-related injury or sickness occur during the course of employment. This coverage is required by law, so be sure that you understand your obligations.

Employment Practice Liability Insurance (EPLI)

Risk Factor
On average, it’s estimated that three out of five businesses will be sued by their employees. Restaurants, just like any other business, are vulnerable from the pre-hire process through to a possible reduction in workforce. Claims can stem from just about anything, such as someone taking a “joke” the wrong way and being offended.
Solution
Coverage to protect you against this risk normally comes as a standalone policy. The right coverage is critical to your risk management process as it protects against discrimination, wrongful termination, sexual harassment, and other employment-related allegations. Typically, the policy will cover your business as well as your directors and officers. Third party coverage is an added option, usually accomplished via a policy endorsement, and addresses claims made by customers or vendors against you from acts committed by employees.

Commercial Property

Risk Factor

Your business property is a significant financial investment. What if something happens to it?

Solution

Commercial property insurance can help protect the property your business owns or leases, including things like equipment, inventory, furniture, and fixtures. Whether you own your building or lease your workspace, commercial property insurance can be purchased separately or can be combined with other necessary coverage to protect your business’ physical assets.

Event Cancellation

Risk Factor

You sink a lot of time, money, and effort into planning an event at your park like a competition, fundraiser, or rally. What happens if you suddenly have to cancel that event? Now you’re out the money you invested and potentially revenue you could have earned.

Solution

If you have to cancel your event due to a covered peril, event cancellation insurance can help your business with lost expenses and revenues. Some coverages are even known as “all-cause” coverage, meaning they cover anything that isn’t explicitly excluded, including events like severe weather, labor strikes, and even terrorism. Premiums for this coverage are often based on gross revenue or expenses for the event and the risk of cancellation.

Business Income / Business Interruption

Risk Factor

Your business relies on nature and the outdoors, but nature is unpredictable and fickle. All it takes is a nasty storm to flood your rivers or an equipment malfunction on your ziplines before your business has to shut down for a few hours or more. Every minute you’re shut down means lost revenue for you.

Solution

Business interruption insurance compensates you for lost income if your business cannot operate as normal due to damage that is covered under your commercial property insurance policy, such as fire or water damage. This type of insurance covers the revenue you would have earned based on your financial records, had the incident not occurred. The policy also covers continuing operating expenses such as rent, electricity, and ordinary payroll.

Guest Passenger Liability

Risk Factor

You need to get your visitors around your park, whether that’s up to the top of a mountain so they can zip down or to a slip along the river so they can kayak back, just to name a few. The minute visitors get on your golf cart, ATV, or more, you become liable for injuries they suffer as a passenger if an accident happens.

Solution

Guest passenger liability insurance can help to cover the costs of a passenger’s medical bills if they suffer an injury during an accident caused by one of your operators. It can also help to cover the costs of defense in case your business is sued over an accident.

Participant Injury

Risk Factor

Adventure and entertainment parks are all fun and games until someone gets hurt. Whether the injury is just a scratch or something more severe, someone could file a lawsuit if they were injured while at your park or using your equipment. Even if you weren’t directly responsible for the injury, you could still be held liable.

Solution

Participant injury insurance can help cover costs if one of your participants gets hurt. This coverage can help pay the expenses associated with the injury such as medical bills, transportation costs, legal defense if your park is sued, and other relevant charges. Policies should cover any park-sponsored activities, events, and travel, and the coverage should extend to all participants and staff.

Cyber Liability

Risk Factor
Just about all businesses rely on technology in some way; it’s increasingly used to store sensitive information, such as credit cards, passwords, and social security numbers. However, you’re at risk if this information is lost, stolen, or compromised. In fact, you may even be legally obligated to alert those impacted by the breach and possibly pay for any financial loss incurred.
Solution
Experiencing a data breach is often not a question of if but when. Securing a cyber liability policy can offer coverage for expenses associated with compliance regarding data breach notification laws, securing legal counsel to advise on incident response, credit monitoring services, and paying for regulatory defense, as well as penalties arising from privacy law violations.

Spectator Liability

Risk Factor

Not everyone who visits your park is going to be participating in your activities, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t at risk while on your property. If something were to happen to a spectator, you could be held liable. The same extends to attendees of any events you hold.

Solution

Spectator liability insurance can help protect you in the event a non-participant or event attendee gets hurt on your property. It provides coverage for medical bills and other defense costs. In some cases, it may also cover third-party property damage, like if a spectator’s vehicle were to be damaged in the course of an event or activity.
