We understand the taking on The Beast could be a daunting prospect. Here are a few ‘frequently asked questions’ that should help you plan your day.
If there’s anything further you’d like to know please drop us an email
Do I need a ticket?
Yes, if you wish to go on the inflatable obstacle course. Sessions on The Beast are ticketed and will run through the day in 45 minute intervals from 10am to 8pm.
Tickets available to buy online (in advance) or via the onsite Box Office on the day.
Please note online sales close at 6am on the day of the event. If you wish to buy tickets for today, please come to the Park and visit the Box Office (card and cash payments accepted).
Do I need a ticket if I’m not going to go on The Beast?
No. The Beast is a public event and you do not need a ticket to come as a spectator. You are welcome to come and watch your friends and family go crazy on The Beast and enjoy great food and beverages in the event village.
How much does it cost?
All tickets are £15 per person. Each ticket includes at least one full circuit on The Beast. If time permits within your session, you will have the opportunity to run the course again.
The event village, including food and drink stalls, will be open throughout your experience.
How do I pick a time slot?
Our booking system will show all available dates and time slots. Pick a time slot that suits you and your group and you’re good to go.
Please note the first 2 sessions each day are designated ‘speed sessions’. These sessions are for serious runners who wish to complete the course in the fastest time. We do not recommend these sessions for family groups or those who wish to take it at a leisurely pace.
What time does Betteshanger Park open and close?
Betteshanger Park opens at 8am and closes 30 minutes after the last session. The event village will be open from 9.30am and will close after the last session. The Beast sessions start at 10am each day.
What time should I arrive?
You should arrive at least 30 minutes before your booked session. This will give you enough time exchange your ticket and a signed disclaimer for your wristband and to hand your belongings in at the locker area.
What should I wear?
We advise light and stretchy clothing to get the most out of your experience. Shoes are not permitted on The Beast. You can wear socks but you are better off with bare-feet.
Where do I put my belongings?
There will be a locker area in the venue to store your belongings while you are on The Beast.
How long will it take me to complete The Beast?
The average runner will complete the course in around 20 minutes.
Can I run The Beast under the influence of alcohol?
No. People who are intoxicated will be refused access to The Beast and your ticket will not be refunded.
Do I need to be fit and strong to complete The Beast?
No. Whilst, The Beast is challenging and demanding at times, you can take it at your own pace and if you can’t do one of the obstacles, you can skip around them. It’s not a competition – it all about having fun and unleashing your inner child.
Is there an age limit to go on The Beast?
Yes. You will need to be aged 10 or over.
What if I am pregnant or have a heart condition?
Due to the nature of The Beast, it is not recommended for pregnant women, people with heart conditions or those carrying any serious injuries to take part.
Can I take food and drinks with me?
Yes, you are invited to spend as long as you wish within our event village. We will also have great local food and beverages to purchase throughout the day.
Do I need to sign a disclaimer?
Yes, just so we make sure you’re ready to ‘tame The Beast’ and understand the risks involved in doing so. You will not be given a wristband until you have signed the disclaimer.
Please print and sign a disclaimer and bring it with you on the day. A disclaimer will be required for everyone in your party.
Are dogs allowed?
Dogs are welcome in Betteshanger Park but must be kept on a lead at all times. Dogs will be permitted in the event village but not into The Beast arena/beyond the ticket desk.
