Visited here as part of a birthday party with 9/10/11 year olds.

It was a freezing cold December day and there was far too much waiting around which ended with kids frozen to the bone. We arrived on time for our appointment then waited ages for another group to turn up who were also in our time slot.

It took well over an hour before the kids had stepped foot on an obstacle, by which time everyone was thoroughly miserable. To add insult to injury , tiny kids went first which held things up even more.

The whole kitting up and induction thing needs to be much more organized.

The obstacles themselves were pretty good, but each transition involved kids clipping off of one obstacle and on to another. I've been on other courses where the harness simply works on a rail system, which is much quicker and much safer. Whilst the safety briefing was good and clear, it would only take a kid not to be paying attention for there to be a problem and there weren't staff supervising every transition.

The place is just a bit unloved - litter and debris here and there.

There are far better high ropes experiences around.

Booked a party package for 14 year old son and 6 friends, plus husband had a go as well. really well organised, really good staff. good value as well as the kids got 2 1/2 hours climbing time. as it was a party package all the kids got a party bag and certificate and my son got a rope runners t shirt as well. The climbing offers different levels of challenges and was really fun.

My daughter and friend went along in the holidays on the wristband day. It was a fantastic day where they were able to sample other activities, and great value for money. It was really easy to book. The staff were really helpful, approachable and went through lots of safety advise for all of the activities, ensuring the children's safety. I will defiantly be booking again.

We took our Scout troop for a morning on the ropes - they absolutely loved it! The instructors were very helpful, knowledgeable and safety-minded. This is without doubt one of the best activities we've done - recommended.
