1. OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU
2.1. Participation in the Activities is not without risk as serious misuse could be fatal. You acknowledge that the Activities can be dangerous with many inherent risks and hazards. As a consequence, personal injury, and sometimes fatality, can occur. You and all participants in your booking voluntarily assume and accept all such risks and waiver the right to sue Flip Out for any personal injury or fatality by signing the Flip Out Waiver prior to engaging in any Activity. All participants are required to sign the Flip Out Waiver and Site Rules before participating in any Activity. 2.2. All participants must attend a safety briefing from a Flip Out team member prior to engaging in any Activity. All participants are required to wear Flip Out grip socks to increase grip and for hygiene reasons whilst taking part in any Activity in the activity area. 2.3. After the safety briefing participants will not be individually supervised by a court monitor or any other Flip Out personnel.
2.4. Children under the age of 12 and people with special needs cannot participate in the Activities unless they are accompanied by a parent, guardian, responsible adult or appropriate carer. The parent, guardian, responsible adult or carer must remain on site for anyone under 12 years of age or anyone with special needs. One adult is permitted to supervise a maximum of ten under 12 year olds. Flip Out personnel will not supervise children, regardless of the child’s age, or anyone with special needs at any time. For participants under the age of 18 or participants who lack capacity, a parent, guardian, responsible adult or carer is required to complete and sign the Flip Out Waiver on behalf of the participant, stating that he or she will accept responsibility for the safety of himself or herself and for supervision of any children or anyone with special needs in his or her care. Such parent, guardian, responsible adult or carer will ensure that all participants under the age of 18 or who lack capacity have read and understood the Site Rules. 2.5.

All participants are subject to the age and weight restrictions for each Activity as at time of booking. [The weight limit for an individual (fully clothed) participant is 125kg. Participants confirm that they do not exceed this weight.. If you have any concerns we advise that you visit a Flip Out Site at a time prior to your booking and speak to a member of the Flip Out team. Flip Out recommends that if you have weight-related concerns you should consult your health services provider and receive medical clearance before participating in an Activity at Flip Out. 2.6. Participants are advised to jump within their ability. If you are unsure as to whether you can complete a manoeuvre, you should not attempt it.

Participants will be required to certify in the Flip Out Waiver that, to the best of their knowledge, they do not suffer from any medical condition or other reason which may prevent them from participating in any of the Activities or which would make it more likely that they would be involved in an incident which could result in injury to themselves or others.
