FAQs

At SKYWILD, safety is our top priority. The course has been designed and built by ACCT (Association for Challenge Course Technology) vendor Challenge Design Innovations and is inspected by a licensed ACCT inspector annually. ACCT is the governing organization overlooking the safety and well-being of aerial adventure parks, zip lines, challenge courses and towers. For more info visit www.acctinfo.org.

Dress for the outdoors! Wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes and clothing you don’t mind getting dirty. We strongly recommend that you do not wear any jewelry. Long hair must be tied back. Participants will be provided helmets, harnesses and any required safety gear. No headphones or electronic devices permitted on the course. Our staff will determine if your clothes are adequate, and if they feel your clothing may cause unsafe conditions, you may be refused entry onto SKYWILD.

SKYWILD does not provide changing rooms so please come dressed to participate. Small lockers will be provided for items you may need to store during your SKYWILD adventure.

Refunds are not provided unless the participant does not meet the weight requirement. Rescheduling is permitted up to 48hrs before your scheduled time. Vouchers will only be issued if the course is closed by management due to inclement weather; rain alone is not cause for closing of the course.

Participants are welcome to bring a water bottle. If you choose to do so, water fountains are available for refills. The less you bring to SKYWILD, the better. Each participant is provided the use of a small locker at no charge. This locker is only large enough to hold a cellphone, wallet, and keys. Please leave any large items at home or in your locked car.

Already have a reservation? Arrive at least 30 – 45 minutes before your scheduled start time. This will provide enough time for our team to get you harnessed up and ready to start your adventure on time to ensure you get a full 2 hours on the course. Remember, your ticket includes free Greensboro Science Center general admission, so if your reservation is later in the day, come early to explore!

Planning to reserve on site? Please remember: ticket sales close 30 minutes prior to each start time.
