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.

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

Turned up a weekday and had a good old time. Bit pricey for what your shelling out for but still great fun. We did the Zip line and Cliff Top Swing. But we're going back when the waters warmer for more. Make sure you visit.

Dear Hugh B, Thanks for coming, and thanks for taking the time to review us here on T/A. I take your point that we are pricey. This is not a cheap place to visit.

When we arrived we were told we had to pre-book to do coasteering, but they managed to add us to another group as there were only 2 of us, which we appreciated. We did the zip line first. My friend had a panic attack just before we were going down. The instructor was very calm and understanding and slowly talked... More
