DO YOU ACCEPT CARER OR COMPANION CARDS?
We assess sliders with special needs on a case-by-case basis, depending on their condition. Our safety guidelines specify 1 person on the stairs at a time; however, in some cases you can offer assistance for the stairs. All slides are 1 person at a time. This event is not suitable for any person who cannot slide down by themselves. Carer and companion cards are accepted for entry onto the site and assistance up the stairs, though if sliding an additional ticket needs to be purchased.
