Event FAQs

How long will the event last?

Each session lasts for 90 minutes. This includes time to complete your Safety Briefing, with around 60 minutes of time to participate on the Tartan Titan.

It is very important that all participants arrive on time for their session. All participants must attend the Safety Briefing and if they are unable to do so we cannot guarantee admission.

Why do adults need tickets & what’s the ratio?

Due to Health and Safety requirements stipulated by our insurance company all children under 18 are required to be supervised by an adult. They need to be on the course with them so they can be on hand on the trickier sections. 1 adult can supervise up to 4 children. 

Do I need a ticket to watch my family/friends? 

No you are welcome to come into the site and enjoy the food and drink outlets while watching your friends and family free of charge.
