What happens in case of inclement weather?

The Garden uses a Lightning Prediction System to alert guests when lightning is near. An alarm will sound one 15-second blast of the horn, signaling that lightning is near.

In the event of lightning, all guests should seek shelter immediately. Safe indoor waiting places include Fogg Café, Kapnick Hall and the Berger Shop in the Garden. When lightning is clear, the alarm will sound three 5-second blasts of the horn.
