Climbing and Zip activity session

During a session you can pitch your climbing skills against 3 different climbs and then whizz down our zip wire from the top. All the safety equipment is included and during your briefing you'll learn some basic climbing skills and how to safely descened.

Leap of Faith and Crates activity session

This is one of our most popular activities. You'll split your time between the two activities - on the Leap of Faith you'll climb up a vertical post to take your place on the top platform. 25 feet above the deck your task is to leap into the air and hit the suspended buoy! Crate climbing sees you building a tower of beer crates...the only catch is you're standing on them! Can you beat the Centre's record?

Climbing and Zip activity session

There's definitely no upper age limit and as with most of our activities there's no strict lower age limit on the climbing tower. We usually find that children around 4 or 5 are old enough to enjoy the activity.

climbing activity sessions

We run climbing sessions all year around - rain or shine! Prior booking is essential and we ask for either full payment or a deposit to be left at the time of booking.
