When you purchase or activate a voucher or buy a course or experience from Black Card Entertainment Ltd you become legally bound by these terms and conditions. Please do not proceed and purchase or activate a voucher or complete a booking until you have read, understood and accepted these terms and conditions.
The prices displayed on our website are correct to the best of our knowledge and maintained on a daily basis. Prices of courses and experiences may vary throughout the year. In the event of an order being placed against an accidental incorrect price, we will endeavour to inform the purchaser of the error within 14 days of the purchase being made, we will allow the purchaser to either cancel the booking or choose to pay the additional difference in price.
Where the duration of a course or experience is mentioned on our website and marketing material or by a member of our staff this is an approximate guide to the length of time you should expect to be at the venue. The duration may vary slightly from venue to venue. When you are taking the course or experience as part of a group there may be some waiting time involved.
3. Descriptions & Images
All descriptions contained on our website and in our marketing material are correct at the time of going to press. However, please note that descriptions are generalised as we offer similar activities and experiences across different venues which may vary in content across different Partner Centres and locations. Descriptions may be updated throughout the year as courses & experiences change. The images used in all promotional literature to illustrate courses & experiences, particularly those that take place at more than one location, are used as an indication only.
All experiences & courses are offered subject to the availability of dates, a minimum number of sales, vehicles, facilities, staff and where applicable the celebrities availability. Bookings should be made as far in advance as possible especially during peak times such as weekends and holidays. We suggest if you plan to purchase a voucher for a date at short notice, you call us to ensure there is still availability before completing the transaction. You should not make any travel or accommodation arrangements in connection with the course or experience until you have received your booking confirmation from Black Card Entertainment or the Partner Centre. Where specific elements of the course/experience such as vehicles are not available due to mechanical breakdown, the Partner Centre reserves the right to make reasonable substitutions on the day. If this is not possible the Partner Centre reserves the right to cancel the course/experience at short notice.
Certain courses & experiences provided are subject to minimum age, health or other requirements. In most cases, these details are listed on our website and at the time of booking, although they are subject to change at any time. It is the purchaser's and/or redeemer's responsibility to check that the restrictions are met. Once you have confirmed a booking you are not eligible for a refund if you are forced to cancel because the minimum requirements are not met. Details of restrictions and requirements are set out on our website under the products page. Please read them carefully.
Many experiences & courses we offer are weather dependent. If bad weather affects a booking it will be rescheduled by the Partner Centre or us at no cost to you and there will be no refunds. There can be no guarantee that a particular date will not be withdrawn due to adverse weather conditions. We strongly recommend that you contact the Partner Centre on the day before you depart for your experience. In the event of cancellation, Black Card Entertainment will not be held liable for the cost of lost insurance premiums, travel expenses, pre-booked accommodation costs or any other costs incurred.
We ask you to leave plenty of time to get to the venue. Many of the courses and experiences we offer require a safety briefing it is essential that the participant attends the briefing otherwise they will not be able to participate. No alcohol or drugs can be consumed before any of the courses or experiences we offer. The staff at the Partner Centre reserve the right to refuse an activity to persons suspected to be under the influence of alcohol and / or drugs. Where the experience requires the wearing of safety equipment such as a crash helmet or a lifejacket this is mandatory and there are no exceptions. Other safety precautions will be advised in your confirmation details. Each venue employs professional instructors who reserve the right to end an experience or course or offer alternative tuition if they believe the participant may endanger themselves or other members of the public.

The very nature of some of the services that we promote as an agent means that they are dangerous. Prior to ordering or participating in any course or experience, you should be aware of the risks involved. Black Card Entertainment can provide further information if you are in any doubt about any course or experience. We require our Partner Centres to hold appropriate and valid public liability insurance before we will promote their services as an agent and we make no warranty or representation about their course or experiences whatsoever. Responsibility rests with you to make independent enquiries with the supplier and other third-parties as to the need to acquire your own insurance cover.
