If you are a school teacher, you’ll know that it can sometimes be a jungle out there. Well, what better way to let them loose, burn off some energy and develop life skills than with a day out at Zipit?

Contact Zipit team to book in your school tour.

We advise booking for your maximum number to ensure that the harnesses are reserved.

Zipit activity time is 3 hours, so if you can only spare 2 hours, we recommend waiting until you have more time, to have the best Zipit experience – we want everyone to go away happy!

On arrival at your booked time, check in at the cabin with our reception team and have your name sheet and waiver with you, you would have received this via email. 

You will be harnessed by one of our qualified staff and everyone that is booked in for the allotted time is introduced to their Training Instructor, who will walk you to the Safety Briefing circuit.

You have 3 hours at Zipit and should allow up to 45 mins for the safety briefing, which starts at your booked time, 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.

Once you have completed the Safety Briefing successfully, it’s time to move on at your own pace. So take the advice of your instructor and start at a circuit level suitable to age and ability.

Let the fun begin……

We ask that all supervisors attend and listen to the Safety Briefing.

One Supervisor must remain on the ground, other teachers can participate if they wish. 

  • We recommend that you wear something comfortable that you don’t mind getting a bit dirty.
  • Gloves are provided for School Tours
  • Small sanitiser to fit in a secure pocket.
  • You should wear comfortable shoes with good grips, no flip-flops or open-toed shoes or sandals.
  • Long hair must be tied into a bun.
  • Recommended that body piercings be covered.
  • Midriffs should not be bare as the harness may chafe.
  • We do not have changing room facilities.
  • You may need to bring insect repellent and sun cream during certain months.

Minimum age is 7 years.

Minimum Height is 1m.

Maximum Weight is 120kg (leg strap dimensions can also limit fitting of harness).

The maximum waist measurement of the harness is 110cm (43 inches).

The maximum expansion of the leg loops, which you step into and tighten around the top of the thigh, measure 70 cm (27 inches).

Our parks use a safety system which involves the use of magnets. Magnets may interfere with the operation of pacemakers and ICD’s. We recommend that you check with your doctor, before making a booking.

Unfortunately, due to safety risks anyone who is pregnant is unable to participate.

Fantastic, incredible staff, fantastic induction, super value for 3 hours of fun.- My grandson is still talking about it and we will definitely return.

Brilliant activity. From start to finish we had a great time at zipit. With children ranging from 6 to 16 there was more than enough for everyone. The staff were fantastic and got us up and running in no time. If you felt like you couldn’t do one of the activities, they reassured you to keep going and made you feel safe. We will definitely be going back and encourage anyone to give it a go if you’re near lough key.

It was an amazing experience where the kids develop their confidence in a challenging but safe environment, I can’t recommend this highly enough. The staff were so helpful and professional we will be back.
