Activity costs per person are:

Payments must be made at the centre, with cash or cheques accepted. You can pay on the day or visit the centre and pay in advance, if you prefer.

If your child is aged between 6 and 8 years-old you should arrange to visit the centre before booking so they can try on safety equipment, such as buoyancy aids and harnesses.

Adults accompanying children must stay on site – why not buy a ticket to take part too?
