Are there rules for minors at the Walden Galleria? Yes! The Walden Galleria (along with Carousel Center in Syracuse) has rules for minors which states that anyone under the age of eighteen (18) visiting must be accompanied by a parent or guardian twenty-one (21) years of age or older.
The parent or guardian (21 years of age or older) is permitted to supervise up to five (5) teens alone and all teens must remain within the company of the parent or guardian during the stay.
Acceptable proof of age for the parent or guardian is a driver’s license, state/provincial non-driver ID, military or college ID, passport or visa.
Please note that this policy does not apply to the cinemas or stores with exterior entrances and you should be aware of other curfews in New York.
A Message from the Walden Galleria Security
Ok parents listen up. if you decide to drop your son or daughter off at the mall thats fine, however they are only to go to the movies, and any Anchor Store in the mall. Dicks, Jc Pennys and Places like that. However they have to travel to those stores on the outside of the mall. and cant not be allowed in the common areas in the mall. the reason being and this is only on Fri and Sat.is if your child is under the age of 18 they must be with someone WHO is (21. if your in the mall with them but you get sepreated you must be with them. at all times. if you are not you will get a call from your Child to have you pick them up. we do tell your children if they do Re-enter the Mall, ” You could be charged for Criminal Trespassing… That is big in our mall. When your Child Re-enters that means they dont want to follow the Rules, Security has every right to Place them Under “ARREST” thats were the police come into play.. so if you want to avoid this trouble Go to the mall with your underage kids. Because Security got Strict. and with the Problems we get in the mall its best that you make sure your Child is safe. Security Has Every Right to Enforce this Policy. They are there to protect you. Its a hard enough job as it is. were not armed, we are just Officers assisting you. Dont hate people that help you. think of it this way. if i was to come to your house and open the door, and open your fridge eat your food. watch your tv. and you being the person you are. you would call the police. if you see what i am getting at. thats your property not mine. So if your at the mall, its a privillage to be there. but when you break the rules thats when we enforce the rules. Also look at it this way. Its Private Property.. There are good things to The Security. They are all trained to Do CPR, FIRST AID. They are all trained at what they do. its not something were you apply and they call you a security officer. This is a NYS Issued Security Licence. So People please dont Hate Security. Hate the people thata break the rules because they’ re the ones that are ruining the privacy of your shopping. and your saftey… Please Follow all the Rules in the mall. Treat it as if you were invited to be there. Don’t Steal because when your Caught your Toast. and that means you can be Removed From the Property for up to 4 Years. Listen to All Security and remember they are there to help you. Let us Help you. Be respectful and remember supervise your CHILDREN.. Thank you. . WGSD…
