Went for the afternoon to The Challenge. Really great fun and the obstacle course is suitable for kids (over 7) and big adult kids too. I will find it a little harder to laugh at the people falling off the big red balls on tv. The staff are really friendly and the facilities are great too with lockers for your... More

We spent the whole day at The Challenge and had a great time. There are a fair few obstacles to conquer and the restaurant also serves some nice food and drinks (plus a happy hour!). We were sore and tired after a full day of climbing but it was worth it, especially if you're looking for something a bit different... More

Had a lot of fun on this wipe out circuit. The obstacles are fun and challenging. Also you have the option to do the challenge on time and everyone will have to get out of your way so you can do it as quick as possible. Impossible to beat the local dudes though!
