Are the high- altitude circuits and the zip lines accessible to people with functional diversity?
Participants with any kind of physical disability (sensory or locomotion, permanent or temporary) or mental disability, or any other cause that requires special attention, please contact us to study the adaptation of our activities to their needs.
In the event of a sudden change in the weather (e.g. strong winds and/or rain, thunderstorms, risk of fire, etc.), the Company reserves the right to evacuate the facilities for safety reasons. In such an event, a change of day for the activity will be offered, always subject to availability.
Can the activity take place if it is raining?fptadmin2023-08-14T13:50:17+00:00
The activity can be done in the rain, as long as there is no heavy rain and it has been assessed that it is safe to do the activity. On rainy days we recommend that you bring a mackintosh and a change of clothes as it will be muddy and you will be grateful for something dry to wear at the end of the activity.
In the event that the Company considers the weather to be suitable for the activity, the services booked may not be cancelled or refunded, even if the weather is not clear or the weather conditions are not entirely suitable.
Are the high-altitude circuits and zip lines accessible to wheelchair users?fptadmin2023-08-14T13:43:05+00:00
The activities require a minimum physical condition to overcome the games and challenges at altitude. Also, participants must not have any physical health problems (e.g. heart disease, respiratory problems, etc.) and accept that there is a risk of injury (e.g. scratches, bumps, bruises, cuts, sprains or other injuries) when doing the activities.
In case of doubt, we recommend that you ask your doctor if you can do Forestal Park Tenerife activities with X condition.
Is there a maximum age limit for activities in the park?fptadmin2023-08-15T18:01:53+00:00
It isn’t recommended that pregnant women practice adventure sports in order to avoid blows, pressure on the abdomen or any other risk for the correct development of the baby. For safety reasons and taking all precautions, our activity isn’t suitable for pregnant women.
I have a child under the age of five, but he/she is taller than 1.10m or vice versa, can he/she enjoy the high-altitude rides?fptadmin2023-08-15T18:00:29+00:00
To access the routes at altitude, participants will be equipped with PETZL harnesses, model PANJI, which are one size fits all and cover a wide range of sizes, thanks to the adjustment of the belt (up to 120 cm) and leg loops (up to 75 cm). It is essential that the harness is correctly adapted to the morphology of your body in order to be able to carry out the activity and avoid ‘harness syndrome’ in the event of getting hung up.
In case you weigh more than 110kg and the harness is adapted to your morphology, you must take into account that a maximum of 130kg is allowed.
How do I know that the facilities comply with safety regulations?fptadmin2023-08-15T19:34:23+00:00
Every year, both the installations of the high-altitude circuits and the zip lines as well as the supporting trees pass an external inspection in accordance with the European standard for high altitude acrobatic circuits. This certification is visible at our reception and you can consult it here
In any case, please consult our regulations so that you are aware of all the conditions of participation that must be fulfilled in order to enjoy a safe experience (link to the park’s regulations and the conditions of participation sheet).
Do I have to wear a helmet?fptadmin2023-08-15T17:56:37+00:00
European regulations for acrobatic routes at height don’t require the use of helmets as this isn’t an activity that involves a danger to the area protected by this element. In any case, if any participant needs to use a helmet for any special reason, please contact us to confirm the availability of the material or to give you the relevant instructions in relation to your case.
Is the activity safe?fptadmin2023-08-15T17:57:15+00:00
Since the end of 2016 we have been working with a safety system called ‘continuous life line’ i.e. you connect at the start to a safety cable ‘life line’ that runs through the whole circuit and you cannot disconnect until you land back on the ground.
Before starting the activity, you will receive a safety talk on a test circuit where the instructors will explain how this system works, how you have to use the elements and what steps you have to take to perform the activity under the highest safety standards.
Can I take my camera and/or video camera with me during the activity?fptadmin2023-08-15T18:13:34+00:00
You can use your mobile phone, photo and/or video cameras, etc. as long as your hands are free for the activity. We recommend that you bring your mobile devices in a case that you can hang from your harness or neck. Selfie sticks are forbidden.
Remember to share your photos and videos on social media with the hashtag #forestalparktenerife and tag us.
Will an instructor accompany us during the activity?fptadmin2023-08-15T18:13:01+00:00
The activity is carried out under supervised autonomy, i.e. the instructor is in charge of supervising the safety equipment, teaching how to use it on the test circuit and goes up to the circuits in case help is needed. From the ground they supervise that all participants and companions follow the instructions and rules of Forestal Park Tenerife.
What do I need to enjoy adventure in the trees?fptadmin2023-08-15T18:12:25+00:00
The instructors at Forestal Park Tenerife try to keep the participants flowing through the park without queues and crowds. In any case, if there is a route with a long queue, we recommend that you look for another less crowded circuit and then go to that route, there are nine different circuits with more than ninety different high-altitude games for you to enjoy an unforgettable adventure.
Can I leave the activity without completing the three hours of activity?fptadmin2023-08-15T18:09:43+00:00
The Forestal Park Tenerife circuits are designed so that every so often you land on the ground and can rest to continue enjoying the adventure in the trees. In case you are unable to continue the activity, when you land on one of the routes, go to our reception to get unequipped and hand in your harness, even if you haven’t completed the three hours.
Is it possible to spend more than three hours on the tours?fptadmin2023-08-15T18:08:42+00:00
The three-hour duration has been established for either the easy and medium difficulty circuits or the difficult or extreme level circuits, i.e. around five different circuits combining different difficulties. In any case, at the beginning of each circuit you will find a sign indicating the estimated duration, the difficulty and the games you are going to play, so that you can choose which circuits you want to go on.
How long does the activity last?fptadmin2023-08-15T18:07:03+00:00
The general admission ticket, which gives access to the high-altitude circuits and zip lines, includes three hours of fun (approximately half an hour of training and two and a half hours of adventure in the trees).

Indeed, people who aren’t going to do the activities can come and watch from the trails how you do the routes at altitude. These visitors will enter the park free of charge, so there is no need to book a ticket for them.

In Forestal Park Tenerife the circuits are divided by colour according to their level of difficulty: GREEN (easy), BLUE (medium), RED (difficult) and BLACK (extreme).

If you are making an online purchase on our ticketing calendar and it only lets you choose X number of adults, but does not let you choose more or it doesn’t let you choose X number of children, or vice versa, it means that there are few places left and there are not enough to select all the tickets you need that day at that time.
