What Should I Wear?

- No loose clothing or shirts wrapped around the waist
- Be sure to wear closed-toe shoes.
- The forest is home to insects like flies and mosquitoes.
- Long pants and long sleeve shirts can reduce the risk of being bitten by insects.
- We are open rain or shine so it is always a good idea to come prepared for the weather.
- Long hair must be tied back
- Avoid jewelry that could get caught in a rope
Guests can be refused access if they do not wear appropriate clothing
What happens if it rains ?
We don’t let rain stop us having fun and our course is totally safe in the rain. The only time we stop climbing or shooting is if there is lightning or high winds. In this case, we close our courses until the weather has passed, and get everyone back up climbing as quickly as possible.
HOW LONG WILL I BE THERE ?
HIGH ROPE COURSE: Our activities are 2 hours in length including training. We do ask that you arrive 30 minutes before your scheduled start time to fill out your waiver and to get your equipment fitted. You will then complete a safety orientation where we will explain the rules of the park and show you how to safely use your equipment before practicing. Once the instructor is confident that you are ready to go, you can start the course on your own.
Late arrivals will have less time on the park, especially in peak season.
ARCHERY: the archery session runs for 45 mins including a safety induction and training by our expert instructors.
HOW HIGH AND DIFFICULT ARE THE HIGH ROPE COURSES?
The skill level and height of each section of the course is marked using a colour coded system indicating the challenge based on elevation and difficulty. Yellow (Kid Course): Minimum Elevation/Minimum Skill
- Yellow (Kid Course): Low Elevation/ Minimum Skill
- Green (Kid + Course): Medium Elevation/Minimum Skill
