    Tobogganers must wear full length sleeves, full length trousers, covered footwear (no flip flops or crocs) and a pair of full fingered gloves whilst on the slope.

    There is a light sprinkler system on the slope so you could get a little damp even if its not raining.

    We will go ahead in all weather conditions so dress for the weather and consider layers in case you get too hot.

    Please aim to arrive at least 10 minutes before your booked time. 

     

    Your time on the slope (30 minutes or 1 hour, dependent on booking type) will begin at your booked time. 


    If you arrive late, we will try to get you onto the toboggan slope as soon as possible however we will have to complete a safety brief and you may have to wait for a member of staff to become free. Unfortunately, we will not be able to carry your time into the next slot so please arrive in plenty of time to avoid disappointment. 

    Yes, you can book tobogganing as a birthday party online here - www.mendip.me/party/


    Tobogganing is available in 3 different session types: 


    Individual toboggan spaces are available for ages 4 - 12. 

    Hour long, exclusive slope bookings is for ages 4 - 12. 

    30 minute, exclusive half slope sessions are for everyone aged 4+. 


    All tobogganers must be at least 4 years old for all session types. 


    By popular demand, we have kept the option for 12's to join in with tobogganing. Due to safety reasons, this is only available with exclusive, 30 minute, half slope bookings.  


    You can use your Toboggan voucher against individual toboggan spaces on standard tobogganing sessions. All vouchers that were valid as of the first lockdown in March 2020, have been extended for 18 months past their original 18 month expiry date. 


    If your voucher is for Tobogganing, chips and a drink, please double check the cafe opening times as it is currently operating on reduced hours. If the cafe is not available when you visit for your toboggan session, you will be issued with a voucher that can be redeemed on a future visit for chips and a drink. 


    If you would rather use toboggan vouchers towards an exclusive session or a different activity, you can use the value of your voucher towards any activity. Simply enter your voucher codes during checkout and your basket total will be discounted by the amount originally paid for your voucher(s). 


    Toboggan vouchers are not valid on Twilight Tobogganing. 

    Tobogganing goes ahead, whatever the weather! It can be even more fun in the rain. 

    There is a covered area for spectators at the top of the slope. The slope itself is not covered and we have sprinklers for when the slope is too dry, so rain just means that everyone slides faster and has more fun! 

    We always recommend dressing for the weather and bringing waterproofs or a change of clothes if it's particularly wet on the day of your tobogganing session.
