Frequently Asked Questions
For a prompt reply, we recommend you read our FAQ below prior to contacting us.
Do I need to pre-book? Opening hours?
All our activities are on a pre-booked basis only. We suggest you book online or call us before travelling to us. We rarely can accommodate walk-ins. We can open any day of the year but on a strict pre-booked basis only.
What should I wear?
You should dress for the elements and the prevailing weather. If partaking in an active activity, we recommend clothes that are older, you don’t mind getting a little dirty and that you can move in.
What age do I need to be?
A driver should be 15 years of age or older on the day of the experience. However, we may permit younger persons in the driver’s seat, at the discretion of the instructor on the day. This highly depends on the person’s age and height, and they may be required to sit with a driver who is over 15 years of age. If you wish for anyone under the age of 15 to drive, we recommend you call us when booking or prior to purchasing a voucher to discuss your requirements. At all our times, our instructor’s decision on a driving day is final.
Do you charge for extra drivers?
No, additional drivers are welcome without charge. However, please note that the drive time for each additional driver will be shorter. If you intend for there to be more than one driver, please tell us when you book your day.
