“well worth a trip”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Enjoyed an afternoon doing the high rope course. Due to maintenance we were unable to do the highest course, however, the lower course was just as much fun and proved a challenge to some group members.
The staff were very attentive and informative.
Safety being their main priority.
Good value for money

“Fun day out one of the best ones i have been”
Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

I have been to 3 high ropes course and this was one of the best ones. It was quite hard compared to the rest. Only thing they could improve on is have more zip lines or a longer one there is plenty of field like go ape in delamere. another thing is i am very short and cant reach one or two of them and the man would not let me go across on the wire and i ended up really hurting my leg it was only when o cried he let me which annoyed me a lot. An i had a sore leg and a massive bruise for weeks. but overall it was really good

“Superb value for money - and great fun.”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I booked this session for a mixed group of 13 people, including four 46 year old mums. As a local, I was keen to show Liverpool off in its best light and the afternoon didn't disappoint. We had a great instructor, Alan, who managed to strike a good balance between reassuring the more cautious adults and entertaining the daredevil kids. The equipment was fantastic, well laid out and thoroughly maintained and we all felt very safe doing the different elements of the course. One of our favourites was the simplest where three people at a time had to balance on a pile of beer crates while Alan built the pile higher and higher. The mums proved particularly clumsy at this - to the great delight of the kids. The day ended with a thrilling/terrifying jump off the high tower Powerfan. We were all buzzing by the end of it - and came away with a real sense of pride at what we'd achieved. Added satisfaction for the parents came from the fact the day was so competitively priced that we still had enough pennies left to splash out in Otter's excellent cafe next door.

“Scared to death”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

This is a must place to go if you love the outdoors and physical activity. I can not say i enjoued it due to being terrified of heights, but i still managed to complete the whole course and very happy with myself. There is so much there for all the family to enjouy. Staff are very good and are happy to help with anything. Thanks to Jay and Chay we got out there alive.
Cafe is also nice and has a good choice for food and drink on offer.

“A high quality adventure experience for all ages, and great food as well!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

Active Adventures is an outdoor activity centre situated in the banks of the Mersey,a couple of miles from the city centre. There's a two level high ropes course,a long zip wire, big maze, and a 'powerfan', which gives the impression of parachute jumping! There are loads of instructors,and it's really well laid out, with loads of room. The cafe, which I'd part of the site, is good enough for a review of it's own!! Great, simple quality food (try the cakes !) Good service, and you don't have to participate in an activity to enjoy it either.
Oh., and the prices are much cheaper than similar things like Go Ape etc. I think it's a really good place for a family day out, or
with a group of mates.
