Our reviews

My sister and I took our brother here for his 20th birthday. We all had a great time and enjoyed ourselves enormously. I am not great with heights but the staff were all exceptionally friendly and made us all feel very comfortable and safe on the course. Would definitely recommend for groups of all ages and the zip line at the end is definitely worth it! Thanks to all the team for a great afternoon. – Emily

We came for my son’s birthday, two of his friends were a little nervous. The instructor John was amazing with them – made them feel confident, made one of them feel brave for having the courage to admit he couldn’t do the second quarry, he made the experience for them. The view was amazing for me as I sat in the cafe (The Cornish Barista) and watched them do both the quarries. We spent 3 hours there and the boys all slept well that night. The whole day was lovely.” – Zanliza

Our sessions include all the necessary kit and instruction. You can also store your belongings in our locker room. So, all you need to bring is yourself, wearing clothes and trainers that you don’t mind getting a bit dirty or wet. If you’re going for one of our water activities, you’ll also need to bring a towel and spare clothes. 
What group sizes do you cater for?
Usually there is no maximum to the number that we can accommodate, however this may change with Government guidelines. If you email us with the number of people you would like, we will take it from there!
Will the sessions get cancelled in bad weather?
Activities still run in rainy weather, but if it pours down, we have a backup indoor climbing wall! Using our indoor space is dependent on government guidelines, so cannot always be guaranteed.
