Your zip wire experience starts at the south end of the picturesque Archbishop's Park, accessible from Lambeth Road, Lambeth Palace Road and Carlise Lane. Head to the check-in area and get signed in.
Next is your safety briefing video taking you through all aspects of your experience. Drop your bags in the locker area and then you'll be kitted up by our expert instructors. You'll be fitted with a full harness and helmet for your ride.
Now some exercise... you'll walk to the far end of the park and climb our 35 meter launch tower. It's a long way up, but a cooling breeze and unique view awaits you!
At the top of the launch tower, you will have all your kit checked again before taking your ride. Countdown 3....2...1, lift your feet and off you go!
At the landing tower, you have the chance to add the "mega drop" freefall experience, or if your nerves are completely shredded already, simply walk down the last few steps to de-kit and inspect your photos.
The experience normally takes about 45 minutes, but may be longer at weekends.
