We recommend that participants check with their own doctor if they have a condition (including pregnancy!) that could be adversely affected by driving a range of vehicles over bumpy off-road terrain.


You will be asked to sign a disclaimer to say that you participate at you own risk and our terms and conditions advise that this is your responsibility to check any health issues.

Up to two spectators per participants are welcome to attend and add to the enjoyment of the day. There is a £15 charge for guests on events that include lunch.

All spectators need to know that off-road vehicles are driving on our site and that they attend at their own risk. Spectators may also be asked to sign a disclaimer.

For a genuine late cancellation/transfer, participants can provide a written explanation and support this with documentary evidence within one month of the original date for the case to be considered and a free transfer offered.




What happens if there are severe weather warnings?


In extreme weather conditions we reserve the right to substitute courses or vehicles for similar ones. Where possible we will contact you in advance to advise you of any changes.


Due to the nature of off road driving it is generally more fun in the rain and bad weather, however, there are some occasions where we will have to cancel an event.


Snow is one of the main reasons that an event might be cancelled. We will endeavour to contact all customers as soon as possible to cancel the event. In some situations this may be on the day of the event as the instructors may have to take a view on the day. If this is the situation we will contact you as early as possible on the day.


If we cancel your event do not fear, we will contact you the next working day with a list of available dates that you can rebook your experience. If your voucher is due to expire do not worry, we will honour your voucher for a full year from the date that the event is cancelled.


If you are worried about your event being cancelled due to the weather, please contact us via telephone. If it is on a weekend, please leave a message and we will get back to you that day.




What happens if there is a breakdown?


All our vehicles are maintained to high standard however occasionally things get broken. If a vehicle brakes down during or on the day of the event we reserve the right to substitute a vehicle for a similar vehicle. 


If the Grizzly brakes down unfortunately we don’t keep a spare full size monster truck. We always have a mechanical team on site on event days and if we can fix it we will. If we can’t fix it, and you are on the way to our site we will try to contact on the number you’ve provided.

If you’re already on site we will check your contact details in order to book another date. If we have to cancel you due to a break down your voucher will be extended for one year from the date you were due to attend and we will send you a list of dates to rebook your experience.

Please note if we have to cancel you due to a break down we are not liable for any hotel or fuel charges you incur.




Can we bring children?

We advise that our site is not suitable for young children, however, if you would like to bring your children they will need to be supervised by and adult over the age of 18 at all times.


Our site is not pram accessible so they would need to either walk or be carried.


Our site is about 3 min walk from the car park and there will be vehicles driving around our fields so supervision is necessary.




Is there disabled access?

Unfortunately as we are an off road driving centre and are located in the woodland there is no wheel chair access to our site.

Once this has been received we will contact you to rebook the appointment.
