How long does it take?
This varies depending on the course you have selected, your level of confidence and the number of people on the course. As a general guide we recommend you allow up to 2 hours for the Croc Course and up to 3 hours for the Rocket Course. On quieter days, if you get around much quicker then we simply let you have another go. If you are taking on the Big Leap or Giant Swing then allow extra time for these activities.
