Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does a Mobile Rock Climbing Wall operate?
A: Each Climber is securely fitted with a Safety Harness. The Climber then begins their ascent up the Climbing Wall. Upon reaching the top of the Wall, the Climber simply pushes off the wall face, then slowly abseils to the ground, using the Auto Belay system. Climbers can begin their descent at any point during a Climb.
Q: What type of events is Laser Skirmish best suited to?
A: Any event where people enjoy being active, competitive, and having fun! This includes:
- * Birthday Parties
- * School Fetes
- * Community Festivals
- * Family Fun Days
- * Social Clubs
- * Youth Groups
- * Corporate Promotions
- * Team Building Programs
- * School Sports Events
- * Vacation Care Entertainment
Q: What is an Auto Belay System?
An Auto Belay is a safety device that automatically lowers each climber when they have finished their climb. The Belay adjusts to the climber's weight to provide a slow and smooth descent back to the ground.
