Some activities have height, weight and age restrictions. It’s also wise to check which of our two sites your chosen activity is on. If you‘ve booked more than one activity, you may need to drive between sites, though occasionally, we can offer transport between the two.

Check our T&Cs before booking and if in doubt, just give us a shout on 02890614115 or email
