    John was a superstar
    Great service from start to finish, had previously booked with another company who cancelled by text day before, after ringing round, found Kong adventure to be very helpful, they proceeded to sort out a booking at very short notice. Upon arrival they were very welcoming, John who took them on their adventure was truly a great guy, very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The teens had an excellent morning session of Ghyll scrambling, thanks for organising at such short notice, much appreciated. When back in the area we will most certainly be calling in.

    Rock climbing experience
    Great rock climbing experience for my teenage granddaughters. Climbing teacher, Sam, was very encouraging and made the experience a lot of fun. Would definitely recommend this to families with teenagers as it's good for building confidence and skills.

    Fun Escape Room!
    My son and I (10 years old) completed the Escape room. It was fun from start to finish and we loved working together to solve the puzzles. They were fun, varied and tricky in places but we managed to escape with 9 seconds remaining! I would definitely recommend this for a family activity

    Wet day, children 4-6
    We had a really great time at Kong adventure and would definitely recommend it to friends. The staff were great, particularly with my 6 year old who had his first time rope climbing, they made it interactive with a few games and It was an hour of none stop climbing. I would recommend booking for climbing lessons, we just turned up the first day and there was no space. We used the hard play- it was a very wet day so busy. It kept the kids, 4 and 6 entertained for well over an hour so I managed to have a coffee (average) and cake (very good).

    Kong Adventure Escape Room
    We tried the Kong Adventure escape room and were not disappointed. The host was excellent. Set the scene and was just the right level of helpful ...which is a big positive because sometimes room hosts can be overly generous with clues. The room is well themed with a good selection of props and puzzles to crack. It offered a good mix of mental and (mildly) physical challenges. Best escape room we've tried so far! Well worth a visit if you have an hour to spare.

    Kong climbing was good fun for me and my son (6) to do together on a wet day. A bit of fun and adventure. Staff couldn’t be more friendly and helpful. Great with kids. Even has decent coffee in the cafe.

We visited on a rainy day to try and keep our 3-yo entertained while on holiday in Keswick.

We later discovered that there had been a fatality at the indoor caving activity some years prior, and honestly, I’m sadly not too surprised.

The hard play is £5 for a session which is relatively reasonable and is meant to be for children aged 3 and upwards. There were children playing in the area that were barely 2 and I wouldn’t really classify it as a ‘safe’ activity.

I’m all about my children learning about risks in a controlled environment, but it just seemed to be quite run down on the whole.

It’s a fun activity for the kids, but some of the holes are extremely small and made me worry for my child’s safety.

We paid £25 for a one hour children's climbing session, only one member of staff for 6 children, therefore questionable safety and poor supervision and support for the children who needed encouragement and assistance. Children were clipping themselves onto the belays, just didn't feel fully safe to me.
My child didn't get much climbing in between belaying other children and then walking around trying to get help from the overstretched member of staff. Won't be coming back.

Did this Escape Room with 3 friends one of whom had done an escape room before but the other two hadn’t. I’ve done quite a few and enjoyed the theming of this one a lot. It’s the only one I’ve ever done which had two levels of expertise available. We chose the easier level with my friends being newbies. It was the right level for us and actually in no way too easy. We got out in a decent time and with not too much to spare. Having done rooms before though I wasted some time trying to solve stuff that wasn’t needed - I’d forgotten there was a harder level and I’m used to pretty much using everything to escape. Some puzzles did not actually need solving.
Good host who explained everything well. Excellent activity to do with friends on a wet day in Keswick!

I’m sorry to leave this review as I can see most reviews are really positive
I paid £25 for a kids hour climbing. My Grandson opted for that rather than the clip and climb option, which he has done in other places, as he wanted to learn some techniques and attempt some more challenging walls
However he only got 3 climbs in the hour session which really disappointed him
There was one instructor for about 10 children, and as a Grandparent watching it didn’t really feel safe
