“Excellent fun”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Took our 11 year old here for a holiday activity. He was in a group of 8 being given climbing tuition. He started off in the bouldering cave to get used to the climbing. The whole group then started their ascent of the wall. The tutor was very encouraging and supportive. My son had a great time. There was a great cafe upstairs with a view over the climbing wall.

“Excellent activity with 5-6 year olds!”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

We had a fantastic time with our enthusiastic instructor Adam who knew his stuff and kept us all entertained, kept the children under control and made sure the adults had a turn as well. A great activity for a slightly damp Lakes afternoon! We will definitely do it again next year.

Thanks for your review. Be great to have you back some time. I'll be sure to let Adam know he's doing a good job. If you enjoyed climbing be sure to search out your local wall. We have a lot of fun at our wall, but the challenges remain regardless of where or what you are climbing.
Many thanks,

“Brilliant fun”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

My boyfriend and I came here to get out of the rain and were not disappointed. The staff members were really friendly and helpful, and no matter what experience you had they tailored the activities and tasks to fit you personally. Would definitely recommend this for a rainy afternoon, we both thoroughly enjoyed it!

“Great multi age taster session”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

An enthusiastic instructor guided us through 90 mins of bouldering and climbing for a group of 7 aged from 4years to almost 40. The parents we were able to enjoy trying out a new activity at the same time as the children, with the instructor managing the children's excitement and also more quiet moments as they found their preferred level of challenge.
