FAQ Oslo Summerpark

We have collected regularly asked questions and their answers below.

What are the opening hours?
Opening hours in the park vary with the season.
Updated opening hours can be found here

What about children in the park?
Children under 12 must always be accompanied by an adult up in the rope courses and on the bike routes. We require that there be at least one adult to three children. This does not count on the lowest climbing routes where adults can help children from the ground. We can unfortunately not allow access to unaccompanied children to the  ‘high routes’ in the Climbing Park.

What are the declaration of personal responsibility and safety rules?
Anyone using the park must accept and fill out a declaration where they commit themselves to obey the safety rules of the park. For persons under 18 this must be signed by an adult responsible for them. This can be done digitally during online booking or at registration, upon arrival at the park. Unfortunately we cannot give access to the park to guests who do not accept the safety rules.

What sort of training will I get?
All those who are going to use the park must undergo an obligatory training course with an instructor. The course must be completed at least one time each season. On busy days some delay must unfortunately be allowed for before training. Follow the instructor’s directions carefully to reduce waiting time.

How long should I expect to be in the Climbing Park?
Registration, equipment collection and training can easily take between 30 minutes and one hour. We recommend that guests expect to spend at least three hours in the park.

Is the park sometimes full?
The Climbing Park does not, unfortunately, have unlimited capacity. We have a maximum number of harnesses which we distribute, and when this number is reached we do not allow anyone else in until some harnesses have been returned, so that the park does not get too full.
Reserve a space in the Climbing Park by booking in advance. Booking site can be found here

What is ‘Drop-in’? 

Drop-in is when you come to the park without a booking. In contrast to those who have prebooked tickets, you are not guaranteed entry. 

How do I pay?
We accept cash and most payment cards. Groups can have a bill sent afterwards (this must be arranged in advance).

Is there anywhere to buy food?
During park opening hours the Vaffebod sells snacks, coffee, and sandwiches. There is also a small kiosk inside the Top Centre, which sells amongst other things drinks and icecreams. We place a heavy emphasis on local and healthy food.

Can I bring a picnic?
There is a barbecue spot and benches where you can enjoy a picnic (due to the risk of fire single use grills, coal brought from home, etc. are not permitted).

Can I bring my dog?
Dogs are allowed in the park. Bring a bag for its waste, and always keep your dog on a lead. Besides this, follow the forest rules for lead use.

Disabilities and special needs?
The park has the resources to welcome and arrange activities for guests with disabilities and other special needs. In the Top Centre we have disabled toilets and entrances.
Certain activities should be arranged in advance.

What if the weather is bad?
During the season the park usually stays open whatever the weather. In the event of lightning and/or strong winds parts of the park can be closed until the weather lifts. Unforeseen stops in the service do not entitle guests to ticket refunds.
