Safety is paramount at Lake Erie Canopy Tours, and every measure is taken to ensure guests are safe, sound, and thrilled at every turn.
As the nature of the adventure park includes activities high up off the ground and utilizes different climbing gear, we ask that all guests adhere to the rules & regulations while at Lake Erie Canopy Tours aerial adventure park for the safety of all guests.
Training & safety gear is provided prior to your tour or adventure challenge course experience. Our helpful staff of guides and adventure course monitors are on hand to lead you through and answer any questions along the way. Please review the Lake Erie Canopy Tours course regulations below.
Continuous Belay Systems:
Once fitted, a participant's harness is connected to a cable system on the course of your choice. The continuous nature of these systems prevent the possibility that the participant will become disconnected while on the ropes course. As participants move from element to element, the click-it clasps move from activity to activity with a key to ensure only one of the two clasps are unlocked at any time. Moving your harness will become second nature as training is provided on-site prior to your tour.
CANOPY TOURS & ADULT ADVENTURE COURSE - RULES & REGULATIONS:
The continuous belay system ensures guests are secure, always be attached. Attempting to dismantle the apparatus, damage gear, or altering the safety of guest equipment in any way may compromise the gear and will result in immediate eviction from the park.
Height minimum: must be able to reach at least 5 ft. (adult challenge and ziplines)
Weight minimum: 70 lbs. (ziplines only)

We do not recommend you participate if you have preexisting conditions or injuries, are pregnant or have back, neck or heart issues. Please consult your doctor if you are unsure whether this activity is suitable for you. SMOKING is NOT allowed on any of the Lake Erie Canopy Tours courses.
For the safety of all guests, no-one under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs, or impairing legal drugs will be permitted on any Lake Erie Canopy Tour activity. For your safety, pregnant women are not permitted to participate in canopy tours or adventure courses.
RELEASE OF LIABILITY:
