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

We were so excited to go to the Adrenalin Quarry and all four of us were planning on flying 2 adults and 2 children. At the 11th hour my youngest chickened out and was too scared to have a go. I was really disaponited for him and I think he would have loved it. My husband went on with my... More

We did the giant swing and zip line. It was great fun and all enjoyed it. The swing being the scarier activity. My granddaughter aged 5 did both ! Although she found the swing a bit of a shock ! The short video was well worth the extra bit of cost just to see her face. When we arrived, staff... More

Had a brilliant time, all 7 of us (4 adults, 2 teenagers and a 9 year old) completed the zipline all of the kids doing it twice. An amazing experience stepping off the top and flying down over the flooded quarry. The staff were very welcoming, very competent and fun, finished off with a lovely cuppa at the cafe where... More

HI Noddymoo, Yippee! thanks for coming. 18 months ago we started working on the Video Cafe (derelict forge, no roof, power or water) and began dreaming up the Video System (unique, custom built, really complicated, temperamental and fiddly, but it works) It's been a journey and the day you described in your review was what we had in mind.

I booked my two eldest and I on the full Monty - Swing, Zip, Coasteering and the Blob. The whole experience was brilliant. I truly couldn't fault any aspect of our day.

Me and a couple of mates came to adrenalin quarry to do the coasteering and all three of us thought it was fantastic. We were put with a group of lads on a stag weekend who were all a good laugh. The coasteering was such good fun and the blob at the end of the session was fantastic. The staff... More

Hi 2dareis2do, wowsers! Thanks for such a great review. We have a relatively new Coasteering team who have been through the mill with intensive training in some pretty cold water and your review shows that it's paying off. Nice one. When I see "I can't recommend this place enough and we'll definitely be back" on Trip Advisor I'm absolutely made... More

This place is amazing. The swing is a must. Chris the guy who set us up on the swing is a legend. He should learn thought that there are numbers after 4 when counting down before pressing the button! Lol

In my son's own words as he came down the 500 yard-long zip wire. With fantastic scenery, the organisation leaves nothing unattended. The staff there are completely on the ball and leave nothing to chance. I am scared of heights and was worried about letting my son do this, but seeing how safety conscious they are about all of it,... More

So awesome! The staff are brilliant and make everything really great from the giant swing and zip wire all the way to coasteering (a group of girls and we did it all)- the blob was hysterical fun.

The Coasteering session at Adrenalin Quarry is one of the most nerve wracking things I have ever done, jumping off a cliff from 40 feet is not something you do everyday! It is amazing fun and I would recommend it to all thrillseekers. It's also good value at £30 for two/three hours of fully instructed coasteering. Staff are acceptable, but... More

Dear Jamie K, thanks for coming down to the Quarry and doing the full Monty! I really appreciate you choosing to come here and also recognise that we are not the cheapest venue around. I am, however, absolutely gutted that our staff were anything less than lovely to you, and apologise unreservedly for any lack of tact, manners or enthusiasm.... More
