Anyone with a positive attitude and a sense of adventure can try Flying Trapeze. For safety reasons, we suggest that all participants should be over the age of 6 years; if you have a 5 year old child or younger that is interested in trying Flying Trapeze, please contact us so that we can evaluate that he or she can fly safely with us. We also have recommendations for our flyers regarding weight limits - 250 pounds. If you have physical concerns, questions about your limitations, or any prior condition, please consult your physician before you fly.
No. By taking advantage of the timing involved with Flying Trapeze, first time flyers can learn several basic tricks without much upper body strength. We teach people how to use the momentum of the swing, rather than strength, to be successful. If you can successfully hang from a bar with your arms straight, you have the strength needed to participate in Flying Trapeze.
ARE THERE ANY RESTRICTIONS?
- If you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you will not be allowed to go on the trapeze.
- If you are pregnant, or think you might be, Flying Trapeze is not for you.
- If you have back, neck or shoulder injuries or have had surgery on these areas you should not go on the trapeze.
We suggest a similar outfit that you would wear to the gym such as leggings or sweatpants and a tighter fitting top (nothing too loose or baggy). You will not wear shoes on the trapeze, go barefoot or socks can be worn. Long hair should be pulled into a ponytail. Remove your jewelry before flying, it can be caught on the net or get lost in the grass. Glasses must be taken off before you go on the trapeze, so wear contact lenses if necessary.
DO I HAVE TO SIGN A WAIVER?
ALL participants must read, fill out and sign our liability waiver. If a participant is under 18 years of age , the Waiver must be signed by a parent or the legal guardian. Bringing a signed waiver with you on your first visit will save time when you check in.
The board is 25 feet off the ground, but only 16 feet above the net.
WHAT ARE THE CANCELLATION POLICIES?
- All classes and private event bookings are non-refundable.
Late Cancellation or No Show: All participants are paying for a reserved class space with a limited amount of availability, therefore we do not refund for “late cancellation” (under 72 hours) or “no shows”. Leaving us with less than 72 hours notice does not provide us enough time to re-book another participant to replace your class spot.
Flying Trapeze Class: Please make sure you make any changes at least 48 hours in advance of the scheduled class time.
Private Event Booking: Non-refundable 50% deposit once booking confirmed. Rescheduling requests made at least 3 days from event may be possible but not guaranteed, based on availability. For unforeseen last minute weather related cancellations, we will do our best to reschedule your event (no fee); should this not be possible, you will receive a your 50% deposit back.
WHAT IF THE WEATHER CAUSES A CLASS TO BE CANCELLED?
The trapeze rig is located outdoors, and therefore weather factors may affect its safe operation. We always do our best to teach the class as long as we can do it safely. Lightning, and rainstorms may result in unexpected cancellation of classes or events on short notice. The moment we know the class will be cancelled, we contact each participant registered in the class by phone or text. Since weather is completely out of our control, there are no refunds for bad weather. Instead, you will be given the option to reschedule to another class time.
