WHAT IS ZIPIT?
Not sure what to expect? Take a look at our go-pro views of the Lough Key Circuits from 2020. All parks have similar activities but we work with nature to give the trees a rest so experiences may vary from season to season.
With platforms starting at just 1 metre high, this is aimed at the younger children, but it is also great for families with younger children to complete together. Little ones aged 7 to 8 can repeat the circuit (under supervision), but they cannot move on a higher level, even if they “are like a monkey”!
With platforms up to 4 metres high, this circuit is for children aged 9 or more and it is a great confidence-builder for adults facing their fear of heights for the first time.
Going as high as 10 metres in places, the White circuit is slightly harder and higher than the Orange. Just like the Orange circuit, it has a minimum age of 9. For adults, looking to warm up for the Blue and Red circuits, this is a good starting point.
If you are aged 12 or more, then it’s onwards and upwards to our longest Blue circuit, with heights up to 15 metres and lots of zipwires. This one takes a while, but there are a couple of ‘short cuts’ if your time is limited or you don’t think your energy levels will last until the end.
If you still feel you have room for more adrenaline (and a little fear!) then age 15+ can move on to the Red circuit – a real challenge requiring major energy and upper body strength. For those of you who are thrill-seekers, ask our Instructors for tips on how to make your experience even more extreme, as you base jump from 15-20 metres!
Included in your time is the Safety Briefing. A 30-45 minute demonstration and practice circuit, explaining how to use the safety harnesses. After a short talk by the Instructor, you then complete a small circuit under Instructor supervision, to ensure you can independently and safely continue on the circuits.
