Are there age and height restrictions?

The jumping pillow will have clearly-stated rules for use, including maximum numbers of children. As the play is unsupervised, play is at own risk and disclaimer signage clearly states we can accept no responsibility for injury or loss howsoever caused.

What if I want to leave and re-enter?

Children are issued with wristbands on entry, which must be worn during your visit to Grass Hoppers. You are therefore free to exit and return during a play session on a given day.
