Owner description: JUMP OFF A CLIFF:The Zip at Adrenalin Quarry in South East Cornwall, is the UK’s maddest ever zip wire. Long, high, fast. 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.

We had a fantastic time here. We did the Giant Swing and Zip Wire. We paid extra for the videos which were very fun to watch back and show friends. Both experiences were great, although a little pricey. We didn't have time to do the coasteering but will do that next time. It's also worth mentioning you can swim in... More

I brought my 9 & 14 yr old children here for the zip line and they both really enjoyed. It is expensive if you consider how long the ride is, however overall I considered it a fair price, more so if you have a second go at a reduce cost. If the zip wire is not scary enough then I'd... More

Another event ticked off my bucket list! We took our grandchildren (aged 7&10) for a visit and the staff were really great and helpful. We took advantage of the "Early bird" offer and had a great time. We are 60 plus and felt really safe as did the children. We didnt try the Swing but they did and havent stopped... More

We were staying in Devon just for a weekend getaway in October so our options were a little limited being off-season, but we picked up a leaflet for this on our hotel and decided to give it a go. I'm SO glad we did! We just turned up to take a look at the zip wire and jumped right in... More

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.

Dear Ellie, thanks for the review and thanks for coming. Adrenalin Quarry and Kartworld are separate businesses, but share car parks and access. I can understand how they might get lumped together! I'm glad the kids had fun, feel free to let them loose on The Zip and The Giant Swing next time. There is also the lake and lawn... 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

Dear Ahelos, thanks for great review, and thanks also for your frankness. I can't comment on prices for Zip wires abroad, but I do know that we've been at the same price since 2009. I'm really sorry that any of the team lacked enthusiasm and seemed bored, that is unusual but I'm sure it's fair comment on how you found... 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!!
