So what is Zipit?
Platforms on trees at various heights (ranging from 1 metre to 20 metres off the ground) which are connected by a range of activities, such as rope bridges, swinging logs, cargo nets and ziplines, allowing you to move from one tree to another.
There are five different circuits, with each one getting a little bit more challenging than the previous one but you probably won’t even notice this as you move along, activity by activity. Admission to each circuit is dependent on age, but sometimes it is necessary to restrict access based on ability. This is for your own safety.
Zipit has built circuits of varying difficulty, suitable for anyone from age 7 upwards with a basic level of fitness. Ideal for those new to the world of adventure who like their challenges in bite-sized chunks, to weekend warriors seeking their latest adrenalin fix. No experience or skill is required, just a desire to have fun and be adventurous.
Be prepared for up to 4 hours of fun as each activity builds your confidence. Within this time you should complete 3 circuits. Please be aware that the circuit starts will be closed at least an hour before we are due to close the park so if you are are in towards the end of the day, check the circuit close times.
Before you Climb
Before your arrival, you need to make your booking online to reserve your harness (in peak season, we book out in advance, so pre-booking saves disappointment on the day).
On arrival, you check in at the cabin with our reception team - as advised at time of booking, you should arrive 15 minutes before your start time to get the paperwork sorted.
Then you are harnessed by one of our qualified staff and everyone that is booked in for the allotted time (usually 15 max) is introduced to their training instructor, who will walk you to the initiation practice circuit.
Allow up to 45 mins for the safety briefing, explaining the features of the course and safety equipment and giving you time to complete the practice circuit under the supervision of the instructor. This allows you to gain your confidence and ensures that you are familiar with the safety system.
Then let the fun begin……
Moving on Up
Our 5 circuits start with a ladder that leads you up to the first platform. Once you connect to the safety system, climb the ladder and enjoy the forest from a unique perspective! You remain connected throughout the course, ensuring your safety so you can focus on having fun. Balance on wires and swinging logs, zipwire through the tree canopy, swing into a cargo net. It’s non-stop fun and adventure once you take your feet off the ground.
