ON THE DAY OF YOUR BOOKING
Please ensure that you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your allocated start time.
Registration forms are then completed by each person participating in the activities.
Running order of the activities will be dependent on all groups booked in that day and subject to change throughout the day.
There may be a break between the end of one activity session and the the start of the next activity session, depending on group size and availability.
No refunds will be given for any participants who decide that they do not want to complete the full activity.
CHANGES TO GROUP NUMBERS
We will need any group number changes confirmed 72 hours prior to the booking. If there are no changes made from your initial booking, then we'll assume that the group size has not changed. If less people turn up than what you have booked for, inside the 72 hours, then £10 per person for those absent people will be retained from the deposit. The cost per person may be also be re-priced to reflect the reduced group size, if group discounts have been given based on your booked group size. Any changes to the group size which constitutes more than 50% of the original total will be treated under the cancellation policy rather than a change in group size.
All customers are expected to arrive 15 minutes prior to their booking start time. If any participants arrive late, activity times will be amended accordingly, with no refund given to ensure there is no knock on effect on customers arriving after you. However, we will do our best to accommodate late arrivals but cannot guarantee this, especially during busy times. If Foylehov are the cause of activities are running late, we will strive to complete your full session otherwise issue an appropriate refund.

If you fail to turn up for your booking, any deposits paid will not be refunded and if a voucher was associated with the booking, it will be voided.

DANGEROUS BEHAVIOUR AND EQUIPMENT DAMAGE
As with all machinery, there are certain dangers; appropriate care should be taken both when operating and observing any mechanical device to lower any risk of injury.
Listen to all safety instructions given to you by an instructor. (A full list is available in reception.) Remember these are for your benefit as well as theirs.
Aggressive and abusive behaviour (verbal or physical) towards members of staff or other visitors to Foylehov Activity Centre will not be tolerated and will result in an immediate end to the activities, forfeiting deposit and activity payment.
Damage to Equipment
Reckless behaviour with regards to equipment usage will not be tolerated and will result in removal from the Activity Centre. Misuse of equipment is deemed as reckless. Do not handle any equipment until told to do so by the instructors.
Damage to the equipment, caused by user complacency, will result in the loss of any deposit. Individuals will be liable for the cost of all breakages deemed to be caused by abuse of the equipment.
ALCOHOL & DRUGS
We enforce a zero alcohol & drugs policy for all groups taking part in any of our activities. If we feel that any member of a party is under the influence of alcohol or drugs it will result in participation being denied and the deposit being forfeited.
MOVEMENT AROUND THE ACTIVITY CENTRE / FARM
Foylehov Activity Centre is on a working farm and as such it is necessary that all visitors obey any directional signs on the courses / farm or marked barrier fencing at all times, not only for their own safety but also for the safety and well-being of the animals on the farm. Please ask an instructor if unsure.
Participants must stay within the boundary of the activity sites at all times. These will be shown to you by the instructors. This includes movement between activities and around the whole farm / Activity Centre.
Spectators must always stay behind the barrier fencing and should not cross any part of the tracks unless told to do so by an instructor. Participants must be aware that there may be uneven ground or rough edges on the obstacles and care must be taken at all times.
All pilots / drivers must wear helmets and are offered protective overalls when operating machinery. Ensure all loose clothing and hair is fastened / tied before commencing Hovercrafts / Powerturn Buggy Sessions. Refusal of overalls is at the participant's own risk.
We would advise you to wear adequate and appropriate clothing and footwear, suitable for participating in outdoor activities and appropriate for the time of year and current weather conditions. A change of clothing is also advisable. We will not be held liable for any damaged or soiled personal clothing and we will not be held liable for any cleaning costs associated with any of the activities you participate in at Foylehov Activity Centre.
AGE RESTRICTIONS - ADULT MECHANICAL ACTIVITIES - HOVERCRAFTS & POWERTURN BUGGIES
For all adult mechanical activities, progression from Practice Arena to the Track(s) aspect is at the instructor’s discretion. Our insurance agreement states that all Hovercraft pilots / Powerturn Buggy drivers must be a least 15 years old to qualify for the full activity package.
If a Hovercraft pilot is 11 - 14 years old they are permitted to fly the Hovercraft themselves in the Practice Arena. Similarly for the Powerturn Buggy session.
Customers aged under 11 years old are not permitted to drive any adult mechanical device themselves but can receive a piloted ride in the Hovercrafts and Powerturn Buggies from one of the instructors. Alternatively then can be passenger with a full paying adult aged 18 or over in the Powerturn Buggy. False declaration could result in your child not being covered by our insurance.
Being an outdoor activity centre located in Northern Ireland we are equipped to deal with most weather conditions. As such the majority of our activities go ahead regardless of weather conditions, but we do recommend that visitors dress appropriately for the conditions. On the very rare occasion, we may have to reschedule / cancel some activities at short notice due to extremely adverse weather conditions. If this is the case, we endeavour to notify customers as soon as possible and will give you the option to reschedule your booking for another suitable time / day. If this does not suit we will refund your deposit fully.
Hovercraft pilots must be also aware of wind conditions and the associated dangers which will be explained by the instructor if necessary. The wind will affect the way in which the hovercraft handles.
Customers must make staff aware of underlying health issues such as back / knee complaints, poor eyesight of hearing difficulties before signing the registration form. Some of our activities may not be suitable for pregnant women.
