Maximum 1 class at a time per school booking. Total number of visitors (participants, supervisors, spectators) is set on a case by case for each booking.

Children under the age of 6 year old can not be admitted in the park at Alert Level 2; sorry but it’s not practical to respect physical distancing when fitting full-body harnesses and guiding younger children.

Stay with your group, don’t mix up with other visitors.

THE PARK IS CLOSED, NO PUBLIC ACCESS

COVID-19 RISK DISCLOSURE

We want to remind you that despite our best efforts, a certain level of exposure to COVID-19 risk will remain at any Alert Level.

There may be situations where it’s not practical to maintain physical distancing, for example when the staff checks your safety gear fits properly or when a rescue is needed. Specific control measures are in place in this case, for example wearing a face mask; the staff will explain what to do. Please follow their instructions.

There may be people from other groups visiting the park. Adventure Forest is a vast space but you will have to be careful to maintain an adequate spacing up in the trees and on the ground.

Some components of the fall protection equipment will be used by several people. Washing hands frequently is primordial. Large groups will be required to nominate designated supervisors to minimise contact with shared surfaces.

We all have a part to play, your active participation is essential, thank you!
