The time stated on your confirmation is the arrival time. No participant may take part in any activity without first attending a pre-session safety briefing as designated by the individual activity marshal.

If any of these occurrences apply, the booking will have been deemed to have been cancelled and cancellation charges will apply. There are no exceptions.
