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

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

7 of us spent a lot of money for what essentially was 2 minutes of fairly lame experiences. Ok for those that never do adrenalin challenges but far too safe for those of us who are looking for real thrills. However the staff were polite and helpful and very safety conscious but the experience was a tad lame.

A fun diversion for an hour or two ( watch out the queue's can be quite long! we waited an hour after "check-in") Very enthusiastic staff, a nicely kitted out site, considering the it is a long walk from one end of the wire to the other but then it would be! Maybe a shuttle bus would make you more... More

An older couple with two adult son's and recently worried about becoming a bit safe in our lifestyle so decided to go down the zip wire to shake things up a bit. I hate heights, rollercoasters et al so was a tad nervous but determined. It was brilliant! Went way too fast. Staff were excellent and the only negative was... More

I went here today with three of my friends to do the ice bucket challenge, and what a success it was. The staff were totally amazing and accommodating, the video was brilliant, we did the ice bucket challenge off the zip wire and although I have a morbid fear of heights and suffer from vertigo the staff made us feel...

We were visiting Kartworld and managed to pluck up the courage to go down the zip line at Adrenalin Quarry. Eight of us did the jump and all thoroughly enjoyed it! It was great that the younger members of our party were able to join in as there was no minimum weight limit. We felt very safe and the staff... More

Great fun and fast. Only problem it's over too quickly. My niece went down the same time as me. She is only 3! She said she loved it.

Dear Nicola P, Thanks for coming......yes it is over too fast, I need to get back on it straight away! Thanks for bringing your niece, she's a cool kid doing it so young, it seems to appeal to really little kids as well and we love it when they go for it. Best wishes Will Sneyd (MD) More

I was slightly dubious about visiting Adrenalin Quarry as it hadn't been recommended by our holiday company and I was concerned about safety etc. I needn't have worried it was a great Morning out, really well organised and good fun for all. They could make it more of a day out with a nice cafe etc but we went on... More

We visited last week with our 7 year old who braved the zip! Excellent fun and they got through quite a queue of people really quickly. You feel very safe too. Would recommend
