An element of risk is designed into the activity. This follows the Go Ape philosophy that exposure to risk in reasonably controlled circumstances is necessary for people to learn how to safely assess and deal with risks that present themselves in life.
Participants are unaccompanied and take responsibility for attaching themselves to the safety system.
The minimum age is 10 years and participants must also be over 1.4 metres (4 feet 7 inches) tall.
Under 18 year olds have to be accompanied by a participating adult.
