Spectators

Spectators are welcome but must follow our safety rules. Children between 10 and 17, a parent or Guardian must remain on site and in proximity during their session. Children are not allowed to be left on their own to wonder around the site as there are a number of dangers such as moving cars, air tanks, heavy equipment which may cause injury or could be damaged by the children as well as deep water hazards. Therefore adults must remain on site with the children if they are spectating.

Do you allow alcohol?

We will not allow anyone to participate if they are under the influence as this is dangerous and a health and safety risk. 

Cancellations

We have a 2-day cancellation policy.  

We reserve the right to cancel the session due to inclement weather, however conditions would have to be pretty extreme for this to happen.

If using vouchers, we will only reschedule the session if we have been given advance warning of up to 48 hours, unless the voucher has not been redeemed or is past its expiry date. If cancelled on the day, I'm afraid you will lose your activity slot.
