Levels

Important note regarding levels and waiting list –

  • Pay attention – Places are limited both for full passes and party passes! From past years experience, in order to save your spot, make sure to register early enough.
  • If you register to any of the partner levels, it is better to register with a partner. When registering with a partner, your chances of having a spot are higher. You and your partner can register to different levels.
  • If you register to any of the partnered track classes with a partner, your registration is confirmed only after you partner has registered as well. You and your partner should register on the same day.
