Visited here recently as couples for my boyfriends 21st birthday present and we booked the 'ultimate assault' for £25 each for 2.5 hours and we were thrilled with it! The staff were very enthusiastic and friendly and helped us with our wetsuits, shorts, helmets, buoyancy aids and health and safety forms. We then got a briefing and a walk around... More

Our U14's rugby tour visited the assault course at Ultimate Adventure and left a very happy bunch indeed. The staff were down to earth and easy going, the course was spot on regarding difficulty and two hours of great fun flew by to waste a Saturday afternoon. I would thoroughly recommend any group from kids and family's to stags and... More

We came for a day out on a hen party. It was really great fun, challenging but exciting and the instructors Claire and Andy added real quality to the day! The whole day was a great experience and would recommend it to anyone looking for some fun and a challenge.

Did both the Awesome 4some and Ultimate Assault and both were lead by Alice who looked after us and helped provide us with an excellent and exhausting day. I highly recommend this to anyone with an adventurous side or who want to delve into the deep end to overcome height fears.
