Tomahawk axe throwing. Size of group was ideal. Well organised and run by Katie. I had to change my booking time prior to the event which was organised very well by the team. Never tried it before but was really good fun and would recommend it to anyone.

Lee and Rich were our instructors and they gave us a great session- loved the zorbing. Easy access from Leeds, plenty of parking. Perfect for a stag! Started the weekend off well.

Booked for 8 children for a birthday party. Setting was great, instructor very patient with the boys and weather was brilliant! Boys were able to do quite a bit of climbing, but been a bit greedy, would have been good to have squeezed a little more out for them. Saying all that they had a great time.

Great day out. Originally booked just Archery, but also got axe throwing for just £10 each. Both were great fun and instructor Rick was great at demonstrating and teaching the correct techniques.
