One participating adult can supervise two under 12 year olds. Participating adults may not supervise from the ground.
An adult (over 18) must join every 4 children under 13 years on the course. 13 – 15 year olds require at least 1 adult per group to supervise on the ground (you’re welcome to join in on the course). If your child is over 13 years and you are supervising from the ground you won’t need to book or pay.
Are there storage or changing facilities?
If your items cannot be left securely in a vehicle, "Sparti" park cannot accept liability of any items lost or damaged. We recommend you leave valuable items at home. If you need to take camera or glasses they must be attached.
What happens in bad weather?
Rope park is an excellent wet weather activity! The course remains open in all weathers, except when it is icy, stormy, in high winds or during lightning. Rain makes the course muddier than usual – which all adds to the fun! Don’t forget to dress for the weather. Have a rainwear with you every time. Sometimes, unfortunately, we might need to close the course for reasons beyond our control. We will do our best to offer alternative dates you like.
How long does the course take?
Adventure takes approximately 2 ­ 3 hours to complete and that includes your safety briefing. It all depends on how speedy you are, how busy the course is and who you’ve got in your group. It will be busier during weekends and school holidays for sure.
Is there a time limit to complete the course?
Nope, you can go at your own pace and let people ‘overtake’ if you fancy taking a little more time over an obstacle or section. If you want to reduce the chance of being held up by people in front of you, we recommend that you book an early morning slot, as there will be fewer people ahead of you. The busiest time ­ from 12 to 15 o`clock.
How long time may i keep Harness?
Good question! Up to 3 hours. But if you took off the equipment before the end of the period ­ it is already necessary to pass it back to the reception. Nobody will help you to put it on you again. Therefore, all strongly recommended prior going to the toilet.
Can spectators come and watch, take pictures and observe from the forest floor?
Yes – that’s a great idea to get them in the forest.
Is it safe?
Of course. Rope park Sparti courses are substantial and physically testing tree­top obstacle courses. CLICK­IT SYSTEM is the most reliable and high­quality security system in the world.
