Regulations and instructions
Gloves are mandatory on the courses. You can buy suitable gloves at Laajis or you can bring your own. Don't come for any of our activities if you have corona symptoms. Remember to keep your safe distance. If you have any doubts, you're welcome to contact us and discuss on how we can help you feel safe during your visit.

Reserve in advance

You can book your adventure in advance on our booking service. Booking has to be made the day before by 18.00. Family ticket and group discount are available only when booked in advance. Prebooking is not mandatory and you can also come for an adventure without a reservation. Why book in advance: on our busiest days you're guaranteed your prebooked start time without additional queues. If you're unable to find suitable start times on our booking service you can also contact us by phone and inquire on the booking status at the park. Note that on those busiest days we could be unable to answer all calls, so it's just as easy to just come by and start your adventure!

NB! Courses will start closing 20-40 mins before park closing time. Note this when you're making a booking! Check the Adventure park opening hours. Check also other instructions and possible effects by weather below on the page. Just regular rain is not an obstacle for an adventure!
