Twin wires cross the flooded depths of the old quarry, sheer cliffs rise on either side.The Zip is the only place in the UK where you can just turn up and jump. NO NEED TO BOOK! No fuss, no pre-booking, no hours of waiting around – we throw you off our cliff within minutes of arrival. We're easy to find, just off the A38 main road. THE GIANT SWING: IT WILL LEAVE YOU SPEECHLESS. Perched at the top of our cliffs, The Giant Swing hangs 50ft off the ground, 150ft over water. You’re hoisted to 80° then plunged 3-at-a-time over the lake. Just when you think there’s no turning back, you pull out of the dive and experience zero gravity, before doing it all again – backwards. First reactions (after recovery time): ‘I was floating on air for 20 minutes afterwards.’ ‘The most amazing thing I’ve ever done.’ ‘Awesome!’ ‘Someone’s gonna pay for this!’. ‘I want to go home now’.No need to book this either! Suitable for all ages 5 - 96 JUMP RIGHT OFF THE CLIFFS INTO OUR LAKE! COASTEERING with THE BLOB at Adrenalin Quarry is unique. Check out our videos and snaps on facebook. We’re the first coasteering venue where the action’s all freshwater and children aged 10 or more can join in. We’re the only coasteering venue in the world where you feel like you’re on the set of Jurassic Park.Go wild swimming, traverse rockfaces, climb sheer cliffs then jump no-strings-attached into the lake. There’s always a safety boat on the water and BCF/SLSGB-qualified coasteering instructors guide you all the way. We’re also fully AALA registered. All this plus free entry, amazing views, bring your picnic and watch all the action from the viewing decks or down by the lake. Pets on leads are welcome, we're easy to find right by the A238 main road. « less

I took my 4 year old and her friend for some infant go karting, the website is misleading stating that coin operated karts are from £1 but in fact they are £2 a go seating up to two passengers. There were only 2 karts in use so we had to wait for other children to finish first, I expect as... More

We did the zip wire and the giant swing. The zip wire was good however I found it a little disappointing as I have done a lot of zip wiring abroad in the past where you pay the same amount but do about 20 different zips. The swing however. WOW. Just fantastic. The view you get at the top is... More

What a fantastic, well designed, family friendly place. On arrival- parking, cafe and other ameneties well sign posted. The friendliness and professionalism of the staff at Adrenalin Quarry were second to none. We had booked an afternoon of Coasteering and 'The Blob'. WELL WORTH EVERY PENNY. Excellent instructors that took great care to ensure safety, without 'the safety factor' overshadowing... More

A group of us recently visited the Adrenalin Quarry on the recommendation of a friend. I didn't know it was possible to fuse adrenaline and relaxation, but these guys have it mastered!! After flying almost 500m over a disused quarry, dangling from a wire, we spent a couple of hours soaking up the sun and swimming in the (rather stunning)... More

My son had been on at us to visit this attraction for a few years but we always thought it was a bit of a drive from Newquay just for the zip wire and swing. We did however eventually cave in and on an overcast day with nothing else to do we decided to go. The swing was really good,... More

We visited the adrenaline quarry with family who were down for the weekend. We only did the zip wire because we thought £25 each for the zip wire & swing was a bit excessive. At £12.50pp I wouldn't do it again.

We visited adenalin quarry in August to ride on the zip wire there. The zipwire was such a great experience, I think it should be a bit cheaper though if I'm honest because it is over in the matter of 30 seconds. Also the video passes (you show it before you get on and they video it for you and... More

Last day of our holiday in Cornwall, and whilst travelling back to Berkshire we (as planned) stopped at Adrenalin Quarry to JUMP OF A CLIFF. As climbing instructors this is something a little different to what we normally do. £12.50 per jump per person. Well worth the money for the experience. Efficient and pleasant staff. Will recommend to anyone visiting... More
