We took our 7 year old and 5 friends to Rope Runners and had a great time. The children were in charge of their equipment (clipping on and off ropes, moving their "Rope Runner" through brackets and using the zip line mechanism etc) but this added to the challenge and adventure of the day. We had a couple of boys... More

We absolutely loved it. 2 office working adults and 1 death defying child. The weather was overcast but dry, it was a Saturday morning, time to go to head out to Rope Runners. Upon arrival we joined another group like ourselves, staff fitted us with harnesses, helmets, and clearly went through safety procedures. During the procedures we were watching the... More

I took my daughter and 9 friends for the high ropes course for her 10th birthday. They all loved it, some were scared, some were not but all of them had a go. They have a variety of heights so there is something for everyone, even my other 6 year old daughter managed the low course. The safety mechanism is... More

Staff were friendly and eager to help - great guidance was given regarding the climbing wall on how to make it more of a challenge There were six courses which all end with a zip wire £20 seems a bit pricy but that was for...

Well organised and good value for money. We did the ropes and you get 2 and half hours on them! There are 6 different courses which include ground level for younger children or the less adventurous. We will be back.

We booked an introductory air rifle session; and then when we were there decided to add the paintball range. Very enjoyable sessions, and my 11 year old really improved in his shooting. The instructor, Sam, was kind and laid back. There was a lot else on the site, which all looked very good, and was popular.

Two teenage boys 15 & 13 had a great couple of hours on the high ropes. The induction was good & the safety system effective & easy for them to manage. Whilst an adult needs to be onsite, you do not need to swing from the ropes with them. My kids really enjoyed it. They were given a lot of... More

Brilliant day out at rope runners. 2 girls age 10 loved it. Staff were very friendly, funny, helpful and on hand if needed - which they were a couple of times when my daughter struggled up high on some wobbly bits - they were really helpful and encouraging - highly recommend - we can't wait to go back xx

Good value, good fun for any age. My boys 9 and 17 did a half day activity session which cost £18.00 each. One hour archery, one hour air rifles, remainder should have been paintball target shooting. Unfortunately the paintball guns were broken, so zorbing given as an alternative.
