Afraid so – for the adult sessions which will run from 12pm to 8pm each day, you will need to be 18 or over.
WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE?
You should arrive at least 30 minutes before your scheduled Monster session.

The earlier you arrive the more prepared you will be for your experience!

The venue will be open from 11:30am each day and closes at 8:30pm. The Monster sessions start at 12pm each day, but the food, drinks and party areas will open throughout.
HOW LONG DOES THE MONSTER TAKE TO GO ROUND?
Depending on how fit, strong and ambitious you are, The Monster can take anywhere from about 5-20 minutes to go round. On average we’d say around 12-15 minutes. With a hangover, it can feel like a lifetime!
DO I NEED TO BE REALLY FIT AND STRONG TO DO THE MONSTER?
No. Whilst, The Monster is challenging and demanding at times, you can take it at your own pace and if you can’t do one of the obstacles, you can skip round them. It’s all about having fun at the end of the day.
WHAT IF I AM PREGNANT OR HAVE A HEART CONDITION?
Due to the nature of The Monster, it is not recommended for pregnant women, people with heart conditions or those carrying any serious injuries.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
We would advise light and stretchy clothing to get the most out of your experience. At the end of the day The Monster is a physical obstacle course. You can wear jeans and a shirt if you want, but you’d be much better off in Active Wear! Yeah we said it - Active Wear! Shoes are not permitted on The Monster. You can wear socks, but you are better off bare-feet.
WHERE DO I PUT MY STUFF/BELONGINGS?
There will be a secure cloak room in the venue to store your belongings while you are on The Monster.
