Excellent fun for children and adults alike, with a soft play/climbing area for little ones too. Good menu choice available. My 12 year old niece was thrilled with her one and a half hour climbing experience while the little ones had a ball on the softplay frames.

My daughter has been learning to climb here for over a year now. She has gained so much confidence & so many skills, I'm continually amazed at the difference this can make to a 9 year old. It is fun & educational & inspiring & motivational. They even run outdoors climbing sessions which are amazing. I would highly recommend Boulders... More

We brought a bunch of 10 year olds here for a birthday party and they thoroughly enjoyed it. The guide was friendly and helpful, they managed to keep seven excited kids under control for 90 minutes, and the food was pretty good too. Highly recommended!

We were given a detailed overview by one of the instructors who was very knowlegable which put my mind at ease as watching people climbing from the cafe area was making me nervous (Anyone whose watched the Cliffhanger movie will know what I...

Went on a taster sessions with work (Cardiff University) for its Positive Health and Environment Week, and I must admit it was incredible. I was worried before hand that I would be very nervous, and that I wouldn't feel comfortable since I've never climbed before. But the instructors were very nice and it was such a positive and relaxed atmosphere.... More
