Took 12 year grandson and his friend. They went on first two levels and thought it was ace. Can't wait to go on next level. Definitely take grandchildren again.

This place is great. Staff are good, course is well designed and safe. It’s lovely to watch your little one’s confidence increase as he completes a circuit. Worth every penny.
