Adventure Starts Here
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?
Zipit treetop adventure parks allow school children to discover nature and the world around them while taking part in activities that can stimulate them in ways the confines of the classroom cannot.
A day at Zipit can awaken their sense of adventure in a safe and controlled environment. Children can climb across treetops, whizz down zip lines and ride a BMX bike across a bridge.
Throughout each adventure, they can learn teamwork, boost self-esteem and discipline. The activities will also keep them active and give them a taste for the outdoors and adventure which can stay with them for life.
At Zipit, we can accommodate various sizes of school groups from aged 9 upwards. We can offer up to three hours of activities and staggered starting times mean we can facilitate over 100 pupils from your school.
Teachers can join in too (free of charge) and test their sense of adventure among the treetops. We do require at least one adult to remain on the ground to supervise at all times.
All ranges of abilities are catered for at Zipit and no pupil will be permitted on any course before completing a short safety briefing.
Schools that have visited Zipit have delivered positive feedback about their experiences. Our expert staff are on hand to attend to your every need and make sure you get the most from your unique adventure experience with us at Zipit.

Know Before you Go
To book a school tour, please give us a call on 051 858008 or fill in the form HERE and we will get back to you. You may not be able to see availability online but that does not mean that there is not space available for your group. Depending on your numbers, we can stagger the start times to ensure that everyone gets to enjoy the activities.
We ask you to confirm your numbers 48 hours in advance of your booking, to ensure that we can roster the correct number of staff for your group.
The students can always grab a snack between circuits, but any scheduled lunch break, will result in lost time at Zipit, if you organise this within the 3 hours.
The Zipit experience is 3 hours for each group. If you do not have this time, we would advise waiting and visiting us another time, to avoid a 'rushed' experience for the students - we want them to go home buzzing!
How Your Time Works
When you make your booking with us, we will send you out a confirmation email and a form to complete with the names of the visiting students.
It is important that you arrive on time, as there may be a group following on after you, so your time may be shorted if you arrive late.
Students are harnessed by one of our qualified staff, put into groups and introduced to their Training Instructor.
The 3 hours includes the Safety Briefing which explains the features of the course and safety equipment. Students complete a small practice circuit under the supervision of the Instructor which allows them to gain their confidence and ensures they are familiar with the safety system.
Then they move on at their own pace. We have instructors positioned around the course, but we do ask that at least one supervisor remains on the ground. Any other supervisors/teachers are welcome to participate free of charge.
Let the fun begin……
Oh, and don't forget to sanitise before you start!
We do ask that teachers/supervisors stay on site. With free tea and coffee and our fabulous team to keep you company, we hope to make your day as enjoyable as the kids!
Why not participate along with the students, and create some great moments. We do ask that one supervisor stays on the ground to ensure we have a contact, should it be required.
We welcome students with additional needs, but would ask that you chat to us first to be sure we can give them an enjoyable experience. Those students with SNA's should be asked to accompany them around the circuits, but there is the option to do this from the ground.
