It is imperative that all persons wear shoes at all times and that participants are aware of the changing surfaces and uneven terrain across the entire premises. We want everyone to enjoy all that our site has to offer, but it is solely the participants and spectators responsibility to be aware of their surroundings at all times.

Anyone who does not meet these requirements will not be allowed to undertake the Activities. It is your responsibility to ensure that all members of your party meet these requirements.

If participants are in any doubt as to whether they should attempt the Activities they are advised to walk the course before booking. If participants have medical concerns they are advised to consult their doctor in advance.

Due to the physical nature of the Activities Squirrel's Scramble (PascoeLang Ltd) recommends that pregnant women should not take part. Pregnant women who still wish to undertake the activities will be required to sign a disclaimer confirming that they are aware that there are risks to them and to their unborn child and that participation in the Activities is at their own risk.
