They may be scared at first
Everyone (well, 99.9%) has a genuine apprehension of being at height and that is no bad thing. Our instructors will help you with the right encouragement and tips but usually, once children have gone around the Wild Kids course once, they lose their fear.
Completing Wild Kids needs a degree of physical fitness but most children are able to complete the obstacles without too much difficulty. The course has been carefully created to offer a physical and stimulating challenge to youngsters of this age group and of all abilities.
Wearing the right stuff
Ideally, please make sure they wear something you don’t mind getting a bit dirty. Dress for the weather. Bring along something waterproof if it’s raining and warm if it's cold! Please make sure they wear appropriate footwear - trainers are ideal. We recommend gloves, especially if it is cold. Long hair must be tied back.
Take some pictures
In fact, take as many as you want, there are some great photo opportunities at Wild Wood.
Arrive in god time!
Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your booked slot to give you time to park and sort yourself out. Late arrivals will be charged at full price at busy times to be fair to all our customers who have booked a time slot. If you are late then the next session has to take priority and on a very busy day there would be a real possibility we might not be able to fit you in.
Wild weather closures
Wild Wood operates in pretty much any weather. However, it will be very rare but sometimes we will have to close at short notice because of exceptional bad weather. This will include electrical storms directly overhead, very high winds and snow or ice which makes the courses unsafe. If this happens, we’ll try and contact you, which is why we ask for your mobile phone number when you book. If we haven’t been able to inform you of a closure before you arrive, the duty manager will update you on likely re-opening times. If we do have to cancel your booking then you will have the opportunity to rebook at a later time.
We hope we have covered everything you need to know, but if you have any more questions please let us know here.
