Owner description: 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.

In spite of some foul weather and freezing rain on Friday when we arrived at Adrenaline Quarry, we all had a fabulous time. My kids braved the Swing (OMG!), and then I joined them doing the Zip. It's a lovely adventure in a fantastic natural setting, doing something really different, and we all keep laughing when we talk about the experience still. It is great fun to watch peoples' faces while you wait your turn, and even more so after you've had your go, and the friendly banter helps create a particularly enjoyable experience.

Dear Senan,

thanks for a corking review!

I remember your visit and enjoyed throwing you and your family off the cliff.

We too enjoy watching the dismay on peoples faces as they find out what they've let themselves in for on the swing. Bliss.

Come back and see us anytime

Best wishes

this was a fantqastic day out. the zip wire is a not to be missed activity for all..... ages. my husbanb ,who is 71 loved it...the staff there are so lovely,and increadably gentle with you; the catch at the end is surprising smooth and gentle .we loved it so much we did it twice..its cheaper too on a second go. my husbands only dissapointment was that he was nowhere near the oldest to go on the zip wire . so come on all you mature adventureous nutters like us .go and allow yourself to be a big kid again .why should they have all the fun.

This was My second trip to Adrenalin Quarry, the first time was for Coasteering but as a mixrd group of Family & Friends we got down as we had indeed given a Zip Line Trip as a gift for Christmas. So whilst in the area it would be rude not to ALL have a go.

Firstly the swing - two of us were "brave" enough to do this. Without giving too much away it really is unnerving being pulled back and released. The views once swinging are amazing and it is a completely "surreal" experience simply dangling over the Quarry.

Two by two - like Noah in the ark, we were dispatched from the top of the Zip Line. What a complete rush, our ages ranging from 14 to 50 we all got such a buzz, so much so we all discussed visiting again soon as its about an hour away. Staff were as ever helpful, friendly and safety concious.

Fantastic way to get out in the good weather, it really is quite spectacular surroundings and the pub @ the bottom of the hill - HAYLOFT serves good grub. We shall be returning.

Dear Carlideal,

Wow! Thanks for coming back to see us, I’m really glad you had a great day. What an intrepid bunch you are, please come and say Hi next time you visit.

I love the Noah’s Ark reference, I’m going to think of a way of having some fun with your idea.

You’re dead right about the food at theHayloft as well, we never hesitate to recommend it, and the Sportsmans right by our entrance is always good for a drink.

My 11 year old convinced me to go on the zip wire as she did not want to do it alone. What a scream! At least her screams must have been heard over all of Cornwall. She did it twice. I did it once and we'll be back in the summer for the big swing! A really fun experience.
