My daughter and her friend celebrated her birthday on Saturday 26 November - they both absolutely loved it - it helped that the weather was dry! The staff were so helpful and I would recommend to anyone who has kids that love being outdoor and adventurous!

Visited with my wife on a Saturday at 10am. Despite the cold the sun was shining and the instructors lines the group of 12 up to go through the safety instructions. The harness and various contraptions were all explained, and all pretty easy to use. There is a small practice area so you know exactly what you are doing before... More

Went with my parents and my husband. My Mam is scared of heights but she persevered and completed the course! Despite the rubbish weather, we had a great time. The staff were super friendly and supportive! Would definitely recommend!

Amazing staff made us feel comfortable, really fun day out. Was definitely a good workout too as I was aching all day yesterday! Lovely pub right next to the course called the stables for a well deserved pint!

Our teenage daughter has now got to the point where she can whiz round the whole route twice while others are still warming up! It's terrifying to watch! She had her 11th birthday there and all her friends loved it.

Only one other much younger child turned up for their time slot, others were booked but didn't turn up - possibly due to the torrential rain! The staff were friendly but quite brisk when... More
