HOW OLD DO I NEED TO BE?

We don’t operate a minimum age policy but instead operate a minimum height and maximum weight policy, for reasons of safety of participants

Maximum permitted weight of each participant is 136kg (21 stone)

Participants must be minimum 1.2m tall to participate without direct adult supervision on the course

Participants between the height of 1m and 1.2m must be accompanied by a responsible adult, age 18 years or over, and must be directly supervised on the course at all times

Individuals under 1m in height are not permitted on the course

Participants must fit in the harness provided by us. We stock a wide range of harness sizes but in the unlikely event we do not have a harness which fits, sadly you won’t be able to take part in the activity and a full refund will be issued

DO I NEED TO BE PHYSICALLY FIT?

You should be in good health and in good physical condition to participate. We recommend you do not participate if you suspect your health could be at risk or you could aggravate a pre-existing condition

This activity is not recommended for individuals with:

WHAT MAKES ALTITUDE ADVENTURE DIFFERENT FROM GO APE?

Altitude Adventure is a Sky Trail® Navigator, two level course with 34 varying elements, 2 walk the planks and is one of the safest high ropes systems in the world

The unique overhead track system allows participants to take their own journey across a series of elements (obstacles) between each platform on both levels, at their own pace, and with the ability to pass other participants on the platforms

ARE THERE TOILETS ON SITE?

A washroom is available on site located to the rear of the Jurassic Falls Adventure Golf reception

Except as set out in our booking terms and conditions, we do not accept cancellations or permit bookings to be rescheduled within 7 days of your booked session. However, your booking can be transferred to other persons for the same date and time. This does not apply to group bookings of 15 people or more

If you are a business customer, we do not offer refunds on bookings, if you wish to cancel your booking and the course is in operation

If you are a business customer, bookings eligible to be rescheduled need to be booked for a session within 3 months of the original booking date. Such bookings can only be rescheduled once
