Absolutely everything youwould want in an indoor climbing area. Second to none. Would not hesitate to do it again.

My son had a great week climbing and generally having fun out and about. The instructors were great and helped the group mix well together. He's keen to return next year already!

I can't rate this highly enough. My 6 year old loved this so much that I am about to take the 4 year old as well. Very safe, clear instruction and good monitoring. Plenty of routes and interest. 1 hour booking slots. Highly recommended.
