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.

For the last 2 years I've gone coasteering at Adrenalin Quarry as a part of my holiday to Cornwall. Each holiday it's the thing I look forward to the most as it's exciting and really gets your adrenalin pumping!

I decided for my husbands birthday I'd like him to jump off a cliff and that's exactly what happened!!! We came early and decided we'd do the zip. I was very impressed at the speed of the staff keeping the queues to the very minimum. As my husband and I had our harnesses pulled tightly on we stood on the... More

I really enjoyed my visit. I went on the Zip first. I enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it. However I was suprised so few were going on The Swing. I was quite nervous about going on The Swing but I wasn't going to let it stop me. So glad I got to ride it. It beats any fairground or... More

We went with friends as a birthday treat and fully expected to move on and do something else in the afternoon...... But no, the weather was fantastic and the adults enjoyed the zip wire experience.

Came across this place accidentally while on holiday in Cornwall, drove up and had a go. I'm really scared of heights but with a little encouragement from the staff and a gentle push, I was away! Omg, amazing... I absolutely loved it and wanted to do it again straight away. Will definitely do it again. Staff were lovely. 5 *

This is one of the best attractions in Cornwall. Do a variety of adrenalin fuelled activities and then relax in a truly tranquil setting. Beautiful grassed area to have picnic/bbq. Swim in the quarry (not as cold as you would expect, its warmer than sea). It is so scenic and picturesque. I have a 7 yr old disabled daughter and... More

I was only a spectator as my son and his fiancee went down the zip wire and also rode the giant swing. They were somewhat nervous but so happy that they both did it together. Now I wish I had. Staff were wonderful and we have some great videos and photos which were very cheap for the quality. My advice... More

I will admit I am reviewing this from the standpoint of spectator, the rest of the family threw themselves in to thin air, I watched. There are multitudinous activities you can de here, the main two seemed to be the zip wire (40 mph down a wire over a flooded quarry) and a very large swing, out over the same... More
