Q. What should I wear?
Guests are encouraged to wear suitable outdoor clothing, closed-toed footwear is required. Sorry, we don’t have any rain gear available.
Q. How long does it take?
Allow up to two and a half hours to do all six zip lines. You then have the option of spending as long as you like in our Family play areas. Most people will want to spend about an hour there.
Q. Do I have to sign a waiver?
Yes. All adventure activities have risks and you will be required to sign our Release of Liability Agreement. We take safety very seriously, but nothing, not even taking a shower, is ever truly risk free. To save time during check-in, please click here to download a copy of the waiver.
Q. What hazards might there be?
Hopefully none! But you are going to be in a wilderness environment. You may encounter some of the following conditions:
- Uneven ground – Roots, rocks, uneven ground and branches may trip or scratch you while you are walking around, which is why we ask you to wear closed toed footwear and equip you with a helmet.
- Trees and brush – Trees and tree limbs can fall without warning, and brush can scratch your face, eyes and skin.
- Steep dropoffs – The canyon walls are near vertical, You must stay behind the safety fences and away from the edges at all times
- Wildlife encounters – Bears, moose, deer, coyotes, wolves and cougars all live in and around the park. It’s SO COOL to see the animals, but they can be unpredictable and potentially dangerous. Our guides are trained to be ‘bear aware’ and we have special procedures in place should you encounter an animal to protect you.
- Heat or cold exposure – You’ll be having so much fun; you may not realize you’re getting too cold or too hot. We recommend appropriate clothing, sunscreen and plenty of liquids to keep you healthy. We provide complimentary water and cups for you at three seperate places on our course
- Accidents – The safety protocols we have in place are second to none, and it extremely unlikely that you will ever come to harm while using our equipment, however we cannot categorically state that accidents will never occur.
Q. When the best time to fly?
There’s no bad time to fly, but in the summer we encourage guests to book the earliest time possible because it gets hot in the Okanagan, and you’ll appreciate the cool morning air. By the time the sun gets up, you’ll have the rest of the day to lounge of the beach or enjoy the many other facilities Peachland has to offer.
Don’t fret if the slot you wanted is already booked, even in the height of summer our park is a few degrees cooler than the beach. We’re in the mountains just 6km from Peachland and the ziplines cross over the beautiful Deep Creek, so it’s always a little cooler.
Q. What if I get scared?
Well, to be honest, you might. That’s kind of the fun of it! But we’ll never ask a guest to do something that they don’t want to do.
Our guides will give you lots of confidence and encouragement but, if you arrive and feel the experience is too much for you , then we will refund your money.
The tour starts with training and getting you harnessed up, before going to the first zip line. We won’t ask you to zip if you really don’t want to, but please understand that by that point we are unable to offer you a refund as the tour has already started.
We require a minimum of 48 hours notice of cancellation, otherwise we have to charge you the full amount of the tour.
We do understand that things can happen that affect your plans, but we’re sorry, we have to be firm on this policy. Just like an airline, we have a limited number of flight times, so once you’ve booked that time we cannot sell it to someone else.
If you are late for your tour, and miss the start time, the tour will proceed without you, and you will not receive a refund. So, please, be on time.
If you arrive intoxicated, we can’t let you zip, and you will not receive a refund.
If we have to cancel or abandon the tour for any reason (for example in the case of dangerous weather conditions) we will either refund all or part of your fee, or give you a “rain check” pass to come back and enjoy the park at another time.
For example; if you’ve completed four of the six lines, we would refund you 1/3rd of your fee or give you a rain check that lets you come back and complete your tour, whichever is your preference.
Q. What if it’s raining?
Tours run rain or shine and the weather is one of the fun unknowns of your tour. In fact, Ziplining in the rain can be an even better experience because the rain lubricates the lines and you get to fly even faster!
