Great birthday venue we have a great morning on the high ropes course. The instructors were very helpful and considerate of the 10 years old boys. The boys had a wonderful time and in afternoon we did archery a great contrast. I am looking forward to the next trip.

Only cost £10 per 14 year old as we were staying in the hotel - thank goodness. We went off for tea and cake as we were told it would take them around 2 hours to complete. They came looking for us after 30 minutes. It was just about ok to kill time. Good for youngsters, older people but nobody... More

Was very scary at the start but I felt amazing once I had completed the course! The 45ft jump at the end was adrenaline fuelled and a good end to the course! Would defiantly do it again!

I bought my husband a gift voucher for his birthday as I was keen to try it myself and we were not disappointed!!! Great fun, staff really helpful and professional! Safety checks were reassuring and once away we were left to conquer our fears with a little friendly support from our guide below! Challenging but not too terrifying, would highly... More

My friend and I travelled to Beamish Wild with the intention of doing something 'different' than the normal shopping or cinema. How pleased we were that we went! The staff were extremely welcoming and friendly and made you feel comfortable despite the nerves! Clear instruction was given regarding how to work the ropes and allowed for any questions to be...

Brilliant! Excellent safety, top instructors and instruction, great fun and an awesome course. I can only apologise for the piercing screams from my two teenage daughters ("I'm not a one for heights" said one, but really loved it). We had the best afternoon, thank you.

My only criticism is it doesnt last long! However a great adventure out for kids... And adults alike! An idea thing to fill in a half day somewhere with lovely adventure walk near by aswell as the museum beamish hall... And just a short drive away Tanfield railway and causey arch.

Took my 11 year old son. He had a fantastic time on the high ropes, staff were great explained in great detail how they apply the kit, clear instructions on safety rules. Gave help and encouragement when required to a few of the other members of the group. I was rather nervous myself and I was observing with my feet... More
