Attraction details
Owner description: Liquidfriction Adventure centre offers not only amazing adrenalin filled activities off site such as canyoning, white water rafting, coasteering and many more, but onsite activities too such as our jacobs ladder and other high ropes challenges. Based in the Afan forest our grounds offer amazing views and scenery, which are a perfect location for our log cabin and dorm room accommodation, bar, restaurant and pool which can be used by both day visitors and guests staying with us.

“Fantastic liquidfriction tubing”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

yesterday me and my friend had a really brilliant day in Wales river tubing with liquidfriction, the instructors were great, safety was paramount but that didnt take away from the thrilling experience tubing down a river in the beautifull welsh countryside, I cant wait to do it again i had a great time loads of laughs, and once again i have to say that ross and Becs were fantastic making sure we all had a great time and that we were safe, thanks guys.

“a bit of a Mickey Mouse set up”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

As stated in the previous review, you cannot fault the guides/instructors enthusiasm for the activities but there were several disappointing factors.
Once you get to the headquarters/base you are responsible for getting yourselves to the location where you are to undertake the activities, this is not highlighted prior to booking nor can I see it anywhere on the website? This proved problematic with large groups, meaning several vehicles had to be driven to required site; ours in particular was a two hour drive away.
We were told that we couldn’t do certain activities due to weather constraints (this is fair enough, weather conditions are out of their control) only to find the next day that another group was doing the activity that we originally requested – felt as if we were doing what the instructors wanted to do rather than what we wanted.
One of our group had an item of clothing go “missing” (expensive pair of Under Armour shorts) from HQ/base, the instructors weren’t helpful at all and didn’t care, we had our time with them and all they were concerned with was the next group.
As again with the previous review, we haven’t received any photos and can’t get a reply from them.

“nice but had some negatives :(”
Reviewed January 20, 2012

I thought the crew had great enthusiasm for the sports activities and my other half loved it. I on the other hand found it very scarey and personally thought it was quite dangerous but anyway. Unfortunately we paid for a photograph pack in with our activity that we purchased on Group On and I sent several messages chasing up these photographs. 2 months later i recevied an email stating that these photos had been lost and we were not offered our money back but were given a 20% off voucher for another activity. I didn't really think much of that.
We stayed in the log cabin on site and the owner was very friendly and helpful. The cabin was very cold and basic but clean and was ok for just stopping over. The area was lovely with a running river and wildlife along with some horses in the field opposite.
They had a little on site pub which they call the drinking hole which was a nice little place to sit and have a drink.
Overall, there were parts that were nice but just such a disapointment about the photos.
