Is it for children or adults?

It is for both! Come on your own or as a part of a group. Different circuits cater for different heights, ages, and abilities. Families can complete circuits together or can choose to supervise kids from the ground.  This is the perfect outdoor activity for children age 7 and upwards or adults of all ages. Our courses are ideal for corporate outings, school tours, team bonding and social groups, hens and stags, kids and adult birthday celebrations.

I want to do the same circuits as my children.

An adult can complete the same circuits as their child but must book an adult ticket, regardless of which circuits you want to complete. Everyone must be booked under their true age at the time of the activity. No harness = no charge.

Do children under 18 need a Supervisor?

All children under 18 must be supervised by an adult, either participating or on the ground. Supervisors must attend, and
listen to the Safety Briefing. Adults supervising more than one child must keep all children within their view at all times.
Unsupervised children will be removed from the circuit, until a supervisor is present, no additional time will be allocated for
children left unsupervised for extended periods of time. There is no fee for supervisors who remain on the ground.

How much does it cost?

Prices vary based on age. See the pricing page.

It is better value to pre-book online and you are guaranteed a space at the time you have selected. 

For walk-ups, there is an additional charge of €3 per person and spaces are dependent on availability.
