How do I book my Rope Runner session?
The recommended option is to book your adventure online, but walk-ins are welcome at any time.
It is highly recommended that you book in advance as we tend to be very busy and our sessions have limited places. Booking in advance will ensure that you have a spot available for rope running at the date and time you want.
When do I need to arrive?
We recommend that you plan to arrive 30 minutes before your scheduled session time. This is to make sure you are checked-in, waivers are signed and your harness is fitted prior to your safety talk. If you are not ready and fitted when the safety talk begins, you’ll have to wait for the next session (if available) or potentially forfeit your session. Arrive early so you don’t miss out!
Do I have to sign a waiver?
Everyone must sign a waiver. All children under the age of 19 must have parents sign a waiver prior to accessing the park.You can sign the waiver when you arrive at the park, however, if parent or guardian will not be present, please DOWNLOAD, print and sign in advance
What are the opening hours for Rope Runner Park?
Opening times are generally influenced by daylight hours and the season. We recommend that guests check availability in advance using the calendar on our online booking system.
Are there any restrictions to be a Rope Runner?
Rope Runner is an attraction designed for pretty much everybody but we do have a few basic requirements:
+ Minimum age is 7 years old and the minimum height 124cm (49 inches) accompanied by a paying adult All children under the age of 10 must have 1 paying adult chaperone for every 3 kids

+ Any participant younger than 19 requires a waiver signed by their legal guardian or an adult (19+) who has obtained permission from the legal guardian. You can DOWNLOAD the waiver to print and sign if the parent or guardian will not be accompanying them.
Can I reschedule or cancel my booking?
Yes, you can cancel with a full refund or reschedule up to 48 hours prior to your session. Cancellations made within 48 hours will forfeit the entire booking cost. Groups of 10 or more can cancel or reschedule up to 4 days prior to their session. Please Note any special event or special deals may hold their own separate Terms & Conditions.
Why do I need to schedule at a specific time?
At any given time the park can accommodate up to 60 guests. To ensure that everyone who plans to go rope running that day has access to a harness and the elements, we need to book sessions. Sessions are scheduled every half an hour, and each session starts with a brief safety talk. Booking a session gives you access to the park for two hours from the start of your safety talk.
What happens in bad weather?
Rope Runner Park is open rain or shine and it is the ultimate all-weather outdoor activity. Please come prepared in the appropriate clothing for the weather conditions.
In some extreme weather conditions, such as high winds of above 61 km/hr and local thunderstorms we may be forced to close the park. If we decide to close the park, we will call in advance to organise full refunds/rescheduling. If you are in the park climbing but less than halfway into your session, we will organise full refunds/rescheduling as well.
What if I’m late?
In fairness to all guests, we don’t delay our session start times. If there is availability in the upcoming session time, we can book you into the next one. If there is not, any late arrivals without prior notice will forfeit their booking with no refund or reschedule. Please check traffic reports especially on busy holiday weekends, and arrive 30 minutes before your session.
What if I don’t show up for a booking on the day?
Will the harness fit me? Can I bring my own harness?
Our full body harnesses are one size fits all and no other safety equipment is allowed.
Are there physical requirements?
Your entire body will work out but you do NOT need to be an athlete to be a Rope Runner. If you are able to pull yourself a few inches off the ground with your arms and walk up 2 set of stairs you can do it!
Can I be a Rope Runner if I am afraid of heights?
If you are worried about your legs and hands shaking, do not fear you are not alone. This is a great activity to overcome those challenges and conquer your fear of heights. Our guides are there to assist and coach you throughout this aerial journey.
