Took my 10-year old daughter and four of her ten-year old friends for what turned out to be a very wet two and a half hours on Sunday morning. It didn't seem to put them off and as for me, sheltering underneath an umbrella and occasionally dipping into the hut for hot chocolate from the vending machine, I was just... More

I went here with a large group of young people and adults of varying ages! The youngsters had an amazing day and there was something for all abilities. BUT no good for wheelchair users. All access paths are down a slope and covered in gravel and soil. The one track that said for disabled access was a gravel track with... More

Took my son, his 13 year old brother and a few friends as a birthday treat. From start to finish the whole booking process was easy and efficient. We unfortunately had a bad weather day but it really didn't impact enjoyment, the rope area was very sheltered as promised so I could sit and watch without getting wet, and the... More

Rope Runners is a very well organised outdoor activities centre outside Brentwood Essex. Located in a beautifully dense forest and surrounded by wide fields, it was a fantastic day where everyone pushed their limits and felt very proud of it. Under close supervision and keen encouragement from super friendly staff, children and adults found that they could conquer their fear... More

I visited on a Sunday with my partner (both adults), our initial reaction was quite overwhelming due to the number of people already there of which a high number were young children. We found the course relatively easy however the safety lines were long (to suit children and adults) This meant that on zip lines you have quite a drop... More

Friends of ours wanted to meet up and suggested Rope Runners. It was a bit out of our area, but as they lived closer we agreed to go, plus it meant all the children could participate - ranging in age from 9-13. The older chldren had a fantastic time, but the 9 year old wasn't confident enough to go on... More

Took my two Granddaughters aged 13 and 10 - this was the second time and they had a brilliant time, although both times it has rained it didn't spoil it for them. It was so good to see them have so much fun and they did the ropes, the climbing wall, zip wire and the drop. Will be bringing them... More

A brilliant day out for those that like heights! Was really disappointed with the rudeness of the receptionist, was very annoyed with the way that she disrespected my daughter (13). She blatantly made fun of her, trying to be funny, my daughter was very upset by this. But overall the other staff were very kind and welcoming and will definitely... More

Had a brilliant day yesterday. The staff were excellent, especially Jessika who helped us out of the Tower. I'm surprised how brave my 6 and 8 year olds were. We will definitely be coming back.
