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

What an excellent place this is. If you want some excitement, this is the place for you! We did the zip wire 490m long, 50m high and you travel at speeds up to 40mph. Terrifying!! There was also an adrenalin swing, and coasteering - too much for me I'm afraid, but it all looked very well organised and professional. All... More

AMAZZZZZZING! We came here in a group today, ages varying from 10 to 55! everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and was an absolute blast! We came with my Down Syndrome sister, and she was over the moon - already wants to go back. We will definitely be visiting again. Thank you for a fantastic day! Will be more prepared for next...

staying in Devon we soon realised that our teenagers are at in between age and limited in what they call fun, my husband sat looking and found the AQ we booked and paid for everything over the phone as the site on my phone wasn't playing ball for me but we booked 4 days ahead and my kids absolutely loved...

Absolutely loved my visit to AQ I did the zip wire over the quarry waters, and it was amazing!! So much so that I had a second go!! They are really open minded about what a "family" is, they say 2 adults and 2 children on their flyer but they gave us (5 adults) the option to buy a family... More

We were booked for coasteering on Sunday morning but decided to go on Saturday afternoon to do the swing and zip wire. The lads on the swing were brilliant, polite encouraging and very amusing ( good job too or I'd have never got on it!), young Paul on the zip wire was also very good and his reassurance got me...

I recently visited here for the day as part of a stag party who were staying in Newquay,i really did'nt know what to expect to be honest as i'd only briefly browsed the online advertisment for this place.Although it was around an hours drive from Newquay and we were all still severely suffering from the previous nights partying the fresh...

We found this after a friend had posted on face book that they had been. My 10 year old son and friend did the zip wire and loved it, however the video you get on face book is a rip of and not worth the £5.00 most of the video was from the top of them starting. If your going... More

I found out about Adrenalin Quarry in a flyer and it was the best find of the holiday. Myself and my friend had a thrilling time with the two instructors, both of whom were hilarious yet supportive to our group members. I recommend this coasteering session to anyone and everyone with a sense of adventure. Not only this, but the... More

Hi AYarlett, thanks a million for your 5 star review. The Coasteering instructors work hard to make the most of the sessions and I'm glad you liked the way they ran the show for you. We love that Zip, I'm really pleased you did too. Best wishes Will Sneyd (MD) More

We found the Adrenalin Quarry online and thought what the hell you only live once. My wife reluctantly agreed to go and we where both reassured by the professional staff with broad smiles saying "You will love it" And they where right, great fun.

How could they get it so wrong? Absolutely no idea how other reviews for this have been so positive. Having been coasteering before (not with AQ) I loved it and knew what to expect. Perhaps the instructors were having a lazy day but here’s my experience…. 1) A member of the group was singled out at the very start of... More
