We had a mixed ability group of independent business owners who are all part of the same networking group in Harrogate. Our guide put together a half day combining team brain teasers on the lawn and physical team challenges on the ropes. Great fun and our team is stronger and better connected than ever before. Thank you to Marc and... More

We chose archery and zorbing for my sons 9th Birthday party at Ripley Castle. The boys all loved both activities and Marc was excellent at handling 11 excited and active boys! The setting was beautiful and we were lucky that the weather just about held out. The booking process was very efficient and all round it was a great event..thanks!

We booked an afternoon at Hazelwood Castle of archery, axe throwing and air rifle shooting for my wife, me and our 14 year-old son. What fun! Our guide/instructor, Rick, was really helpful and had us firing, shooting and throwing in no time. With each activity you spend some time practicing to get the hang of it, and then you play...

My daughter chose zorbing and orienteering for her 10th birthday party with 12 of her friends. At the end of the two events, they were beaming with the excitement and all had a very restful night! Ripley Castle grounds was a fantastic place to have it and their instructor Marc had so much energy and was excellent with the girls!

We had an orienteering/bush craft party for my sons 8th birthday. This wasn't what I was originally looking at (tree top climbing) but after the valuable guidance from Katie we changed our selection. After seeing the tree top climbing I am very glad we did as my son would have struggled reaching up high! The group of boys loved the... More

This is our 4th birthday party in a row for my son at LFT Ripley. We keep coming back because there's really not much else around that's 'outdoors-y', its really good fun and excellently run, from the instructors on the day, to the behind-the-scenes admin. We had an hours zorbing first where the instructor, Lee (who was ace, really kept... More

A fantastic, well organised and great location in which to hold a party for a bunch of 11 yr old boys. Zorbing was the chosen activity, and the leader had all the kids engaged and channelled their excitement into all the activities. Highly recommended.
