The Dollar Loan Center unveiled the new John C. Kish Foundation Sensory Room – the first space of its kind in the state of Nevada – on Saturday, April 30. The room, which was designed in conjunction with the non-profit organization KultureCity, will provide a welcoming area for arena guests with autism or other sensory needs. KultureCity also confirmed The Dollar Loan Center as a Certified Sensory Inclusive Venue.
Foley Entertainment Group operates the venue, which is located on the main concourse behind section 12. It has a bubble wall, light wall, games and other elements designed to lessen sensory overload and engage both children and adults. For access to the room, please visit Guest Services behind section 3 during a home game for assistance.
KultureCity is the nation’s only non-profit that provides sensory inclusion certification, a process that includes training for venue staff, offering guests approved sensory inclusive bags and creating a “social story” or visual narrative that prepares guests for their visit.
“Our communities are what shape our lives and to know that the Foley Entertainment Group is willing to go the extra mile to ensure that everyone, no matter their ability, is included in their community is amazing,” said Uma Srivastava, Executive Director of KultureCity. “We’re honored to partner with The Dollar Loan Center to provide a truly inclusive experience for all fans and guests!”
