    2. Participants who have purchased student tickets for the Activities must be aged 18-24 years only. They must carry with them a valid ID document (e.g. driver's license, passport, ID card, student card etc) to verify their age in order to qualify for this discounted rate.
    3. Anyone holding a student ticket or booking who fails to produce a valid proof of age when requested to do so by our staff will be charged the full adult ticket rate before being permitted to undertake the Activities.
    4. Children under the age of 18 years may not participate in the Activities without their parent / guardian first signing a Flying Fox Disclaimer.
    5. Children under 16 years must be supervised by a participating parent / guardian customer at all times on the tour, or by an adult with the express authority of the parent / guardian to supervise their child. Minors aged 16-17 years do not need to be supervised by a participating adult customer. A participating adult can supervise a maximum of 11 children per tour / session, subject to the express permission of the parents / guardians of those children.
    6. The consumption of alcohol or drugs prior to or during the Activities is strictly prohibited. Participants who are deemed to be intoxicated will be refused admission. The Flying Fox Site Manager’s decision on this is final.
    7. You cannot participate if you fall into any one of the following categories:
      1. Below 1.4 metres / 4’ 7” in height
      2. Above 115 kg / 18 stone in weight

    8. If you are concerned about your health or have an existing medical condition you must consult Flying Fox head office or the Site Manager in advance in order to complete an Existing Medical Condition Form. See Health & Safety below for more details. Flying Fox reserves the right to deny access to participants deemed to be physically or mentally unfit to take part in the Activities.
    9. At Flying Fox we operate with harnesses that conform to UIAA standards, as we believe they best suit our needs and health and safety requirements. The size of this harness dictates the size of customer that we can safely allow to participate on a Flying Fox course. The maximum waist measurement of the harness is 110cm (43 inches) and the leg loops (which go around the top of each thigh) measure 70 cm (27 inches). If your statistics are close to or exceed these figures there is a possibility you may not fit in a harness and therefore will not be able to participate on the Flying Fox course. Waist measurements should be taken above the belly button; males weighing 18 stone (115kg) and females size 18+ are likely to be in this category.
    10. Anyone who does not meet these requirements will not be allowed to undertake the Activities. It is your responsibility to ensure that all members of your party meet these requirements.

    3. These Booking Terms and Conditions incorporate the terms of Flying Fox’s Privacy Policy, Existing Medical Condition Form, Standard Disclaimer Form and Disclaimer – Minor Accompanied by Non-Parent / Guardian.
    4. You and each member of your party will be required to sign a Disclaimer before being allowed to undertake the Activities. A responsible adult must sign a Disclaimer on behalf of any participant under the age of 18 years. For large groups of children (e.g. school groups), the responsible adult must sign a Disclaimer – Minor Accompanied by Non-Parent / Guardian.
    5. You must advise Flying Fox as soon as possible of any mistake in Flying Fox’s booking confirmation. Flying Fox shall use its reasonable endeavours to ensure that you and your party’s participation commences at the time booked. However, Flying Fox accepts no liability or responsibility for the late departure or completion of any of its Activities sessions for any reason.

Venomous snakes and wild animals may pose a hazard at some of our locations. As with any adventurous activity, participation is not without risk of damage to property, personal injury or even death.

    6. Assessment in the competent use of the equipment on the practise zip by a Flying Fox instructor,.

However participants are responsible for their own safety (and the safety of any possessions) while undertaking the Activities. Participants must give the instructors their full attention at all times.
    8. In particular, participants are responsible for actively braking their speed on arrival at the end of the zip line, by applying their gloved dominant hand onto the cable behind their pulley, as instructed by their Flying Fox instructor. Failure to so may result in serious injury.
    9. Flying Fox accepts no liability or responsibility for damage, injury or loss incurred in the event that you do not follow our safety advice and instructions.
    10. Flying Fox reserves the right to refuse admittance to the Activities or to remove a participant from the Activities should it deem it necessary to do so. This includes a participant who does not comply with the safety advice and the safety system, who is deemed to be physically or mentally unfit, or who is deemed to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
    11. A participating parent / guardian must accompany all under 16 year olds. One adult is permitted to supervise up to eleven 10-15 year olds, with the express permission of their parents / guardians. Young people aged 16-17 years may zip unaccompanied by an adult, but their parent / guardian or authorised adult must sign their Disclaimer. Each participating adult must sign a Disclaimer stating that he or she will accept responsibility for the safety and supervision of all children in their care.
    12. All participants are required to wear a safety harness provided by Flying Fox and fitted by an instructor. Larger or smaller framed participants may be required to wear an additional chest harness for safety reasons. See clause 2 for sizing details.

    15. If you (or any Minor Participant) suffers from an existing medical condition which may be aggravated by the Activities, we strongly recommend that you seek advice from your doctor, before you (or any Minor Participant) undertakes the Activities, to ascertain your (or any Minor Participant’s) medical, physical or mental condition and suitability to participate.
    16. If you (or any Minor Participant) has a serious mental condition, or an obviously debilitating physical condition, which in our opinion could pose a safety risk to yourself or to anyone else, then you (and any Minor Participant) WILL NOT be permitted to participate in the Activities – and the decision of the Site Manager on this is final.
    17. If you (or any Minor Participant) declare an existing medical condition and you decide to proceed, then you must sign an Existing Medical Condition form prior to your zip tour, in which you take full responsibility for any aggravation to your existing condition as a result of the Activities. Flying Fox accepts no responsibility or liability for any injury or loss due to the failure of participants to inform us in advance of any existing medical condition.
    18. Due to the physical nature of the Activities Flying Fox recommends that pregnant women should not take part. Pregnant women who still wish to undertake the activities will be required to sign a disclaimer confirming that they are aware that there are risks to them and to their unborn child and that participation in the Activities is at their own risk.
    19. Participants need to be able to see similar distances to those required to drive a car in order to be able to complete the course and to supervise any under 16 year olds in their care. Consequently, short or long sighted participants must ensure that they wear contact lenses or prescribed glasses.
    20. All participants are required to act responsibly and courteously at all times and to respect other participants. Flying Fox shall be entitled to prevent any person from undertaking or completing the Activities in the event it deems the behaviour of any participant unsuitable.
    21. Flying Fox cannot operate in certain weather conditions (such as high winds, heavy rains, fog / low visibility, electrical or dust storms). If your tour cannot go ahead for this reason, we will warn you in advance and re-book you at another time.
