FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

No. You can follow underneath the courses for free. We love spectators, especially those that take great pictures and tag us when they post them to social media ?
Don’t worry, that’s half the fun!
If you lose your footing while climbing, your safety line will prevent you from falling very far, only about 8 inches. You will be able to get back up and continue.
No flip flops, sandals or open toed shoes.
Sneakers, tennis shoes or boots are perfect and will help with your footing on the course.
For your enjoyment and safety, we recommend loose and comfortable clothing. Check out the weather forecast for the day and dress accordingly.
While gloves aren’t a requirement, we would recommend them for a more comfortable experience! Gripper Gloves are available for sale both at the time of online reservation or at the park for $2 a pair. Climbers can bring their own gloves.
Set your alarm clock! It’s important to arrive at least 20 minutes before your reservation time. We need to check you in and we also recommend using the bathroom before putting your harness on. If you are late, you will have to wait until the next available time slot. The best thing to do is leave in plenty of time.
Generally, each course takes about 1/2 hour to complete.
But this may vary depending on the course, your level of confidence and the number of people in front of you on the course.
We strongly recommend that you book in advance as we get very busy, especially during peak periods, such as weekends and school holidays.
We do allow walk ons but you may have to wait to be harnessed and begin climbing.
The New England weather likes to keep us on our toes. Luckily you can have just as much fun in light rain as you can in the sun. So we remain open during the light stuff. Heavy rains are no fun to climb in and even worse to rescue someone in, so we do close when it gets heavy. If we are forced to close due to bad weather, we will contact all reservation holders as soon as possible.
We require 24 hours advance notice for a full refund. If the park closes due to weather we will refund or reschedule your reservation. You can choose to reschedule your reservation to a future date and time up until your scheduled start time.
We teach you everything you need to know to be safe while climbing. The courses do contain some easy and some physically challenging obstacles so there is a risk of scrapes and bruises.
Unfortunately no, you must do the obstacles to get to the zip lines.
