Things to remember

When riding the Ziplines, clients are required to sit in a harness. All participants must be equipped with gloves in order to have the chance of braking or simply to protect their hands. The second of the Ziplines is equipped with an automatic braking system.

The Fall Arrest Blocks are designed to secure users when progressing on a scale.

The Climbing Wall includes two routes for climbing. The client is secured by a Trublue auto belay which, once the customer reaches the top of the wall, allows him to go down gently to the ground.
