Comfortable clothes and shoes for zipping through the air. We do not recommend wearing very short shorts as the harness straps can feel uncomfortable when directly on skin. Closed shoes are best but secured sandals (not flip-flops) are also acceptable.

Yes, 4 years old is the minimum age to do the tour.
I’ve booked online and heaven’t heard anything – what do I do?
If you do not receive a confirmation email within the a few minutes after booking, your bank may have blocked the transaction or something may have gone wrong in the process. Please call us or send us an email to double-check your reservation and you may also need to call your bank to see if they blocked the transaction.
