Safety & Basic Training

Unfortunately, on days of high demand, some waiting time must be expected in the safety training. Follow the instructor's messages carefully to reduce the waiting time.

Weather & Clothing

The park is open whatever the weather in the season. In the event of a thunderstorm and / or heavy wind, parts of the park may need to be closed until the weather clears up. Unforeseen downtime does not entail the right to reimbursement of your ticket payment. We recommend exercise clothing or easy moving hiking gear for climbing. You quickly get warm from all the activity, so dress up with the opportunity for relief in the outfit. It may be beneficial to carry a bag of extra clothing. Running shoes or hiking shoes with good soles are preferable. There is no problem climbing while it rains - carry some light rain-gear in your bag.
