2. Children Below 7 Need to be Accompanied on the Course

3. Prices at Forest Adventure

The Grand Course price is $50 per participant and $46 for tertiary students on weekdays. For its opening, Forest Adventure has a special price of $46 per participant for the Grand Course.
4. What to Wear on the Course
Closed-toed sports shoes are a must. Sandals, slippers and loose-fitting shoes are not allowed on the course.
It is also recommended to wear trousers or Bermuda shorts to protect the skin from chaffing against the safety harness and in the event of rubbing against the rope obstacles.
5. Safety System at Forest Adventure
Unlike traditional high ropes course where each participant has a belayer on the ground accompanying him or her, the course at Forest Adventure uses a continuous safety line that runs through the course. Participants need to thread their safety equipment on to the safety line and trolley it along with them as they move through the course. This means that there are no instructors on the course. Participants will need to navigate the course on their own.
6. Participants That Are Stuck Get Help
Forest Adventure allows participants to challenge themselves without an instructor there pushing them along. Occasionally, this means that the participant faces something that stops them in their tracks. If a participant is stuck at an obstacle, an instructor can head up to guide him or her through the obstacle.
7. Make a Booking Before You Go
Before making your way down to Forest Adventure, make a booking online or over the phone. This way, you can be assured of being able to do the course when you are there. If you do not have a booking and there are too many people waiting to do the course, Forest Adventure may turn away walk-ins.
Having said that, if you have made a booking and for some reason cannot make it, be courteous and give a call to Forest Adventure and let them know you would like to cancel your booking. There could be a walk-in who may wish to take your timeslot.
