Flexibility and Convenience

Our memberships are flexible: if you have a Dual level or higher and your co-owner unable to visit, you may bring a guest with you in his or her place. For Family Memberships and higher, we accept up to four children, so if you only have two children in your household, each may bring a friend with them. Additionally, the co-owners of a membership are not required to reside in the same address; however, only one address per membership account will receive our mailings.
