Great fun!

I really like this centre - both the climbing and bouldering sessions are good fun!
They make sure you’re fully instructed on how to safely climb before they allow you on the walls and provide you with chalk, a helmet and climbing shoes.

It’s such a great, fun, way to get fit and all the staff are very friendly!

They're a bit obsessed with themselves. It's climbing a wall with massive holds, no other climbing gym I've gone to has been so obstructive towards climbing.

This is a great climbing centre, with a variety of walls ranging in technical difficulties.

Our son has been a few times, and loves it. We've also had a party here for him.

Staff were fantastic and really helpful.

It's brilliant, give it a go

My daughter has been coming now for a couple of years and she loves it. Occasionally I try and climb a wall and join her and it's a really fun thing for a family to do. For insurance and safety reasons getting started can be a little ominous, you have to complete certain orientation classes but once done you can just rock up and get your climb on. The staff are without exception excellent, they are all polite, informative and incredibly helpful when you are stuck on a climb. At busy times the atmosphere can be fantastic and what is really heartwarming is that everyone, staff and climbers, are just really friendly. It doesn't matter to them whether you are an expert climber or an absolute novice like me, everyone chips in, helps out, gives you support and guidance, celebrates your victories and offer condolences and encouragement when it doesn't go right.
The only down side is when Steve gets hold of the play list, if you've experienced it you'll understand :)

Great staff
Oct 2017 • Family
We visited with our two children with learning disabilities, having booked a 60min taster session. The ce ntre feels really well run, with sufficient challenge for kids and adults of all abilities. Our kids are not straightforward and need patience, flexibility and a sense of humour - all the staff understood this immediately, adapted the session accordingly, went out of their way to help, and made sure they got the most out of their hour. Definitely recommended.

9th Birthday Party
Jun 2016 • Family
Booked a party for my son and 16 of his friends at Craggy Island. Although it is a lot smaller than I anticipated, it was perfect as you have exclusivity to the smaller of the two rooms which has a climbing wall for sideways climbing and the caving. The children enter the room through a cave at reception which is great fun. The party price now includes pizza from Domino's!!! Would definitely recommend if you are planning a party.

I am quite new to bouldering. Came here with a friend.

Friendly staffs and good climbing facilities. Various difficulty levels available.

Wasn't too pack when I visited on a Sunday. Lockers available for free but you'll have to bring your own padlock to lock.

Great for a different kind of kids party
Oct 2015 • Family
We held our Son's 8th birthday party at craggy island having not previously realised this was actually here. The party itself was great fun all the guests were kitted out in a climbing harnesses, helmet and head torch before being briefed on the activities which involved around 80 minutes or so of scrambling on the climbing walls but the most fun was had during the caving actives which saw the kids run off to explore a man made caving system behind all the climbing walls.

The parents can watch from various viewing galleries whilst the kids are enjoying themselves. The party catering facilities were a bit sparse, there is no formal on site catering provision however a local pizza company can deliver for parties and you can bring your own food also. There is also a generously sized party room for your use.

In summary great little place, kids really enjoyed the party and want to go again.
