FAQs

Are there Restrictions or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

The participant named on the registration ticket, needs to be the participant taking part. ID will be required and further documentation will require filling in and signing before any participant takes part in the abseil. Under 18's will require a responsible adult to sign.

We do require that all participants are above 1.4m tall and the age of 10. If we suspect that a participant is below this height or age, then proof will be required before they can participate.

We do have a maximum weight limit of 18 Stone or 115 kg.

All Jewellery is to be removed. Wedding rings may be taped, but this needs doing prior to the event with fabric tape and will be at your own risk.

All long hair is to be tied back where possible into a low ponytail to aid the fitting of helmets.

Personal climbing equipment is not permitted.

Access to the platform is restricted and participants will be expected to climb obstacles for access.

Delays & the weather:

Delays should be expected when the weather deteriorates to a point where access to the roof is not safe for participants or our volunteers. This is to include extreme high or low tempratures, snow, hail, thunder & lightning. Light rain is permitted but will be monitored.

Delays can also be expected with participants nerves. Last year we successfully got all participants over the edge, but sometimes this was not on the first go.

Should either of the above delays happen please be patient and we will get the event back on track as soon as we can.


What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

We recommend using public transport where possible but we are aware that participants may travel a distance to take part. There is NO on-site parking and therefore the use of local public car parks is required. There is multiple car parks within a 3 minute walk of the abseil location. All of which are Pay & Display and can be found on the Swindon Borough Council website.

What can I bring into the event?

Bring your nerves, it will help! Please wear appropiate clothing for the weather on the day and be aware that whilst waiting on the abseil platform you will be exposed to further extreme elements.

Only trainers will be permitted on the abseil platform. Any other footwear or bare foot will not be accepted.

Please arrive for the registration time allocated on your ticket. Late arrivals will not be allowed to participate. A waiver will then be completed along with training. Spectators will not be allowed within the registration marquee or the abseil platform.
