Experience descriptions, formats and durations
The information provided on our site by Acorne Plc with regards to the experience descriptions, formats and timing given on the WOW HD websites are only intended to present a general idea of the experience and shall not be considered binding. In particular, photographs are for illustrative purposes only and do not form part of any contract between you and WOW HD. As WOW HD offers experiences by a third party supplier at a wide number of venues, details such as session lengths, itineraries, equipment used and numbers of participants may vary from location to location. Most experiences will be “open” days meaning that other members of the public will be taking part too. This could mean taking your turn with other members of the public. If delays, curtailments and breakdowns are not within WOW HD’s control, we cannot be held liable if these should occur.. lease note that we reserve the right to alter any part of the experience where such an alteration has been imposed by the operator. We cannot be held responsible for descriptions by or on any third party or agent sites.
Experience suppliers will have third party liability insurance it is your responsibility to ensure you are adequately covered.
Please note that affiliate links or promotions running on WOW HD Will not be applicable to Virgin Experience products.
The recipient is free to book their preferred date within the Voucher validity period. Experiences are subject to availability and, in some cases, may be subject to weather conditions (if your experience is weather dependent we advise telephoning the centre before you set out to confirm that the event will take place). To avoid disappointment it is recommend that customers book well in advance, at least 6-8 weeks for the majority of experiences. During peak periods it may be necessary to allow a longer notice period although some operators may occasionally be able to fit in a booking at short notice. We recommend booking as early as possible as you must have undertaken your experience before the expiry date printed on the front of your Voucher. We strongly advise that you do not make any travel, accommodation or other arrangements until you have received confirmation of your booking from the experience operator. Once a date has been booked with a supplier your Voucher will be deemed to be used at that point.
Most experiences are subject to restrictions. These could include (but are not limited to) age, height, weight, physical and medical restrictions, and may vary from centre to centre so please check before making your booking. Details of these restrictions are available on our website and contained in your pack. It is your responsibility to ensure that you choose an experience appropriate for the intended recipient and it is the responsibility of the recipient to double check that the restrictions are not prohibitive. If you are unsure of the suitability please contact our customer service team.

Virgin Experience Day reserve the right to vary the prices of the experiences which they offer. A Virgin Experience Day current experience prices may differ from the value of your face value voucher.

Acorne Plc has contracted agreements with its operators regarding their standard of performance and, where appropriate, operators are registered with their relevant controlling or regulatory bodies. Once a booking has been made with an experience operator the participant is also bound by the Terms and Conditions of that operator. By purchasing or redeeming an Virgin Experience Day Voucher you acknowledge that experiences are dependent on certain factors beyond the control of Acorne Plc and Élan Media Partners and agree that Acorne Plc and Élan Media Partners is not liable for the cancellation, postponement or alteration of any experience for reasons beyond its reasonable control (including but not limited to weather-related reasons, mechanical failure, location changes or otherwise).

All UK and Eire experience operators contract with us to indemnify participating Voucher holders against damage to equipment they use, and against liabilities to third parties, subject to limits and compliance with their rules, terms and conditions, which may vary between operators. They also hold cover, subject to terms and limits, for contingent liabilities arising at these operators' venues. Where experiences require overseas travel, the participant is strongly advised to take out additional specialist travel insurance. Some experience operators may offer additional indemnities at an extra cost. Such indemnities are entirely optional and you are under no obligation to purchase them, as your entitlement to undertake the experience will not be affected if you choose not to accept an additional indemnity. Any additional indemnities purchased from an experience operator will be governed by that operator’s terms and conditions and do not form any part of your contract with Acorne Plc and Élan Media Partners.
