Description: JUMP OFF A CLIFF:The Zip at Adrenalin Quarry in South East Cornwall, is...
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.

The zip wire is 1500 feet long and approx. 150 feet above the water when you start off. We had visitors from the Midlands and they were not disappointed. Staff seem to be very safety conscious so you feel quite safe. We only tried the zip wire as at £12.50 it could turn into a costly day out. Free admission... More

Took a group of children to enjoy the experience and was not disappointed. All of them were really quite scared but most of them pushed their fears to one side and did it. Once they had experienced the zip wire followed by the swing they were so amazed that they had done it they had a real sense of achievement.... More

Perfectly named. A great adrenaline fuelled day in a quarry. Tried out the zip wire and the giant swing. The zip wire is fantastic and fun - feet together if you want to go faster, starfish if you want to slow down. The giant swing seems to go up for ever, that's probably the scariest part, apart from the first... More

Dear Jennifry D, thanks for a great review and thanks for coming. I totally agree with you about the swing, it's going up that really gets to me, the drop seems like relief after that. Come back any time, we'll be here. Best wishes Will Sneyd (MD) More

Abit apprehensive at first, but wanted to prove a point to my son. He chickened out, but hey, what an experience. For the price of £12.50 per person, my daughter and I enjoyed the thrill of our lives. The staff were professional and friendly. Not worth paying extra fiver for video recording which you can take with your phone. Next... More

We were there all day and did the full set of activities for a stag do in April. The staff were incredibly helpful, warm and accommodating all day and went out of their way to look after us.

Visited this morning and was very impressed with the staff who were friendly and good fun. It was all well organised with lots of different things to do. The swing is not for the faint hearted but certainly clears your lungs. Well recommended. We will be visiting again.
