Instructions/guidelines at “High Ropes Course”
This type of high rope course is unique. Our technical safety equipment in the high ropes course is in perfect order and condition. However the correct u se of the safety equipment is responsibility of attendants only. Therefore it is very important to be concentrated and careful with yourself and with the safety equipment and the fixed gears. Otherwise bad or even fatal injuries can be caused.
Please protect yourself by observing all of our warning and information signs, safety information, the general conditions and the following instructions/guidelines! Thank you. Throughout the stay in the high ropes course all instructions of the staff have to be observed. Each customer has to take part in the complete practical and theoretical safety-instruction carried out by our staff.
The safety equipment (harness, safety rope with carabiners and safety roller) can not be used without participation in the safety instruction carried out by our staff. After the safety instruction each attendant has to care for his/her safety equipment and to get through the course self-dependent.
Special guidelines for the high ropes course
Both safety carabiners always need to be hooked in the safety rope. When changing the carabiners to another wire only one carabiner may be removed and then hooked in another rope. Never remove both safety carabiners at the same time from the safety rope! Please check the safety equipment of your partner. Each carabiner that safes your life is thus checked by 4 eyes (yours and your partners´) which are always better than 2. Each station may only be passed by 1 person.
There may be not more than 3 persons on each platform at the same time. Locked or restricted areas must not be passed. Children with a body height under 1.40 m need to be accompanied by an adult during the course. School classes and children´s groups (per 5 children under 1.40 m) optionally can be accompanied by an adult or need to book additional safety staff.
The access to the high ropes course and the Zipline/Flying Fox requires a physical and mental condition which neither is a danger to you nor to others. If in doubt please refer to our safety staff and inform us about any impairments of health. Persons who are influenced by drug use (such as alcohol etc.) must NOT participate!
