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.

An amazing experience with something for everyone. My wife, myself and my 2 teenage sons did the coasteering in August and although the weather wasn't great, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The equipment and guides were superb and the location was great. The swimming, climbing and jumping were very challenging, but at no time do you feel pressured to do... More

What an experience and what a great setting. This place has so much to offer the adrenalin junkie and the more conservative amongst us. You can choose to throw yourself off a cliff, have a huge swing over oblivion or set up a picnic and dip your toes in the water. We will be back

We had a fantastic time here. We did the Giant Swing and Zip Wire. We paid extra for the videos which were very fun to watch back and show friends. Both experiences were great, although a little pricey. We didn't have time to do the coasteering but will do that next time. It's also worth mentioning you can swim in... More

I brought my 9 & 14 yr old children here for the zip line and they both really enjoyed. It is expensive if you consider how long the ride is, however overall I considered it a fair price, more so if you have a second go at a reduce cost. If the zip wire is not scary enough then I'd... More

We did the zip wire and the giant swing.
