What should I bring with me?

You may take cameras, phones, or any other device on the course as long as they are secured to you and tucked away to prevent them from getting caught or falling to the ground. Water is available on the course, but you may also bring a water bottle if it can be attached with a carabiner to your harness (please bring your own carabineer). We don’t recommend you bring a bag with you into the trees because they are bulky, but if you must bring a bag, it should fit closely to your body and may not interfere with the harness or related Go Ape gear.
