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.

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.

Fantastic day had by all. Zip wire was an experience not to be missed. Scary at the top but well worth it. Coasteering was amazing. A bit on the cold side being April but worth a summertime visit. What made the experience were the guys who took care of us. Chatty, funny, experienced and it didn't pass me by that... More

Both the giant swing and the zip line were a lot of fun. The kids loved the swing for sheer excitement and sip lining over a lake was beautiful without creating too much anxiety!! The staff were great and the price is very reasonable. Definitely something to do with the kids for if you want some excitement.

This is a great place, with beautiful surroundings. We took our friend, for his birthday on the zip wire and it was so worth the money, just for the thrill. We will be going again, in the summer, as you can swim in the lake and have a picnic or bbq on the green. Also go karting Is just around... More

This is a place for thrill-seakers. I have never before experienced an adrenaline rush like this before. Our teenage kids loved it too, so much so that we 'had to' pay for another ride for them. The whole experience was absolutely amazing, but painfully expensive, too. You have to do it at least once, though!
