Monkey Business Aerial Adventure Park

Can you tell me more about the safety aspect of the park?
Safety is the most important factor for everyone at Monkey Business Aerial Adventure Park.

Before you start your activity, our trained staff will run through all of the safety procedures. There will be a safety briefing (complete with a short safety video), a gear up session and then practice round on the low ropes.

All of our customers will be fitted with a state of the art auto-locking Smart Belays, designed to keep you attached to the course at all times, whilst still allowing you the freedom to navigate the courses as you wish. This easy to use safety system gives you peace of mind that you and your loved ones will remain safe and secure while climbing and zipping.

Our experienced instructors will be on hand every step of the way to provide support and instructions. Your safety is of paramount importance, so if you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Are reservations required?
Reservations are highly recommended. Walk in climbers are welcome but limited based on availability. There is no guarantee that we will be able to accommodate your group without advanced notice.

Plan to arrive early. If you arrive late to your reservation, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to serve your group at your time of arrival.

What do I need to wear?
Wear well fitting clothing that does not allow anything to hang loose or get tangled in cables and rope. Long hair and jewelry should not be left loose. Sneakers or hiking shoes are recommended. Closed-toe shoes are required — heels, flip-flops, and sandals are not acceptable.
What are the participation requirements?
To participate on the main aerial adventure course, you must be at least 50 lbs. The maximum weight limit is 250lbs. You must be 7+ years old and be able to reach 50”. For the smaller Mini Monkey course, kids must be a minimum age of 4 and have adult supervision.
Can I really do it all year round? What if it's snowing?
We are open throughout the summer months (May to September). If there is any ice or lightning, we will postpone your trip due to safety reasons. If you have any concerns about the weather, please don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss.
Can I watch my child from below the course?
Yes, we’ve got a great deck area where you can view your loved ones zipping through the air.
Are there any restaurants on site?
There are small snack foods and drinks on site.
What is the refund policy?
We have a strict no refund policy. We cannot do refunds due to weather, cancellations, or any other reasons.
