JUMP OFF A CLIFF:The Zip at Adrenalin Quarry in South East Cornwall, is the UK’s maddest ever zip wire. Long, high, fast. Twin wires cross the flooded depths of the old quarry, sheer cliffs rise on either side.The Zip is the only place in the UK where you can just turn up and jump. NO NEED TO BOOK! No fuss, no pre-booking, no hours of waiting around – we throw you off our cliff within minutes of arrival. We're easy to find, just off the A38 main road. THE GIANT SWING: IT WILL LEAVE YOU SPEECHLESS. Perched at the top of our cliffs, The Giant Swing hangs 50ft off the ground, 150ft over water. You’re hoisted to 80° then plunged 3-at-a-time over the lake. Just when you think there’s no turning back, you pull out of the dive and experience zero gravity, before doing it all again – backwards. First reactions (after recovery time): ‘I was floating on air for 20 minutes afterwards.’ ‘The most amazing thing I’ve ever done.’ ‘Awesome!’ ‘Someone’s gonna pay for this!’. ‘I want to go home now’.No need to book this either! Suitable for all ages 5 - 96 JUMP RIGHT OFF THE CLIFFS INTO OUR LAKE! COASTEERING with THE BLOB at Adrenalin Quarry is unique. Check out our videos and snaps on facebook. We’re the first coasteering venue where the action’s all freshwater and children aged 10 or more can join in. We’re the only coasteering venue in the world where you feel like you’re on the set of Jurassic Park.Go wild swimming, traverse rockfaces, climb sheer cliffs then jump no-strings-attached into the lake. There’s always a safety boat on the water and BCF/SLSGB-qualified coasteering instructors guide you all the way. We’re also fully AALA registered. All this plus free entry, amazing views, bring your picnic and watch all the action from the viewing decks or down by the lake. Pets on leads are welcome, we're easy to find right by the A238 main road.

Visited on family hol with 2 kids, 10 and 12. First we did the zip wires to the bottom. This was great! Kids loved it . Once we zoomed down to the bottom it was on to our main activity - the coastering. After pouring ourselves into the wet suits - very amusing! off we went into the quarry which... More

Dear Gruffyh1, thanks for the top marks and for braving the rain. Fair comment on the changing, we've always had the lake and lawn open for free and have had a mindset that it's like a beach.....lock your stuff in the motor and get changed where you can. Expectations are changing so we're figuring out what to do for 2017.... More

This is a great experience. Zip wire descent over a flooded quarry. The staff were very attentive and observed all the necessary safety checks. Unfortunately the guys at the take-off platform phoned my weight, incorrectly, to the guys at the landing stage and i went down into the water around 10 feet from the end. Still attached to the line... More

This place contains lots of things to do and all at very good value prices! We were only interested in the zip line for this particular visit, but the other activities, such as the big swing, axe throwing and coasteering all looked like great fun. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and were on hand at both ends... More

Me and my friend went here today and we had such fun! We went on the giant swing and the zip wire, had such a blast! It was so much fun. The giant swing was very terrifying but worth it! We bought a video pass which is so worth the money as the memories we now have to keep forever... More

This is an excellent days activities all located on the one site with the most caring reassuring staff who were mindful of the needs of individuals'. One of our party was twelve years old and was extremely nervous and did not intend on doing the zip wire. However, at the end of the day she decided without prompting and of... More
