Frequently Asked Questions
How old do you have to be to take part?
Anyone aged 14 and above can participate. We also offer family rafts where children from the age of 10 can enjoy the experience.
Will I get wet?
It is a possibility you will get wet! But we provide wetsuits to keep you warm. It’s all part of the experience and some people even to choose to jump in at the end!
Is it Scary?
All experiences are designed with you in mind. We have different grades of difficulty and can tailor the session to suit your requirements.
Do you need any Experience?
No! All training is provided on the day
When should I arrive and how long should I plan to be there?
We ask everyone to arrive 30 minutes before their booking time, the session is 2 hours long and then you’ll need to get showered and changed afterwards, so plan to be with us for about 3 hours.
Do I need to be able to swim?
Yes, even though you will be wearing a buoyancy aid, all participants need to be able to swim minimum 25 metres.
How many times do you go around the course?
It varies depending on your group. We tailor the experience to suit you, so you can go down the course as fast and as often as possible or most groups like to have fun and play in and around the features on the course. Either way the instructors make sure you have a good time.
What happens if I fall out?
On some occasions people do fall out but you’re wearing safety equipment. You are given full training by our qualified instructors with the rest of your buddies and we usually drag you back in to the raft or meet you at the bottom of the course and get ready to go round again.
Can I wear my glasses?
We suggest that you wear contact lenses as if you fall out there’s no chance of you finding your them again and we also wouldn’t want you to cut yourself if they break whilst bouncing around the course.
Will I be rafting with people I don’t know?
It depends. We have two types of rafting experiences but both require six people in a raft. The first is where a group of friends charter a raft for 6 people so you’ll know everyone; and the second is where you can book individual places on a raft with other people to make up a full raft of 6.
What do I need to bring?
You will need to bring a swimsuit, shorts or something to wear underneath the wetsuit which you don’t mind getting wet and a towel. Plus a pair of training shoes that you don’t mind getting wet. Everything else you’ll need will be provided at the centre.
