Step One
You decide your security levels. What you choose will determine how you are treated. Suggested security level is medium. You may try both levels of security.

Jail Role Play Adventure

Maximum Security Single Cell No. 3

The Yard

Medium Level Security:  Inmates will be put into the inner cell block. They will be assigned to a cell. They will be allowed to roam around in the locked inner cell block. They get optional yard time once daily. They may watch television through the bars from the inner cell block when allowed. They are not allowed out of the inner cell block to the yard or shower without being escorted by an officer.


Maximum Security Level:  The Inmate will be placed alone in a cell shackled as was done in the early days of the jail.  Most people will want to experience both medium and Maximum security when they come.  

This is an opportunity for selected individuals to go to jail without committing a crime. You will experience jail intake and incarceration first hand. What better way to learn about what jail was like than to actually be in one. 


This adventure is available to individuals and families. If a family signs up, the jail will be reserved just for them during the period that they are there in a "family jail".


When men sign up, the jail will be reserved only for men. When women sign up, the jail will be reserved only for women. All rules stay the same when adults play. I make no exceptions.
