Just taken our under 13s squad to the challenge Academy Hub, all the boys had a brilliant time on the high ropes course, Zip wire and high jump. Special mention to the instructors who were excellent & helped the boys overcome some real scary moments. Super time, highly recommended.👍👍👍

We had a fantastic time at the Adventure Hub ... it was very good value for money, excellent safety and attentive and friendly staff. My children loved it and begged to go back again soon. They loved the challenges offered and it tested and stretched their nerve. Great location with a nice clean play park, accessible toilets and a very... More

We bring a group to Baggeridge every year as part of our work with a national children's charity. Challenge Academy provide good value for money, the staff are very supportive, and booking is simple. Most importantly, the activities are fun but safe. The feedback we get from young people is always really positive.

My son had his 7th birthday party at Baggeridge Park yesterday and it was fab! There were a few kids who got scared and upset but the whole experience was amazing. It was the 2nd time we've used CTTE for a birthday party and we have been pleased on both occasions. Food is available at the park's cafe, which we... More

We went to Closer To The Edge at Baggeridge as a family group, with ages from 11 to 61 and only my son had previously been here. Staff were friendly, encouraging, great atmosphere and fantastic fun. Would highly recommend to anyone, we will certainly be going back again quite soon!

Today I took 16 members of 240 Squadron ATC to the high ropes course at Baggeridge. It's the first time many of the Cadets have done anything like this and I was utterly surprised on how they coped. The team work and leadership shown by the Cadets was brilliant. Every single one gave it a go and they all came... More

A perfect trip for a group of U13 school girls, who all absolutely loved the challenges. Climbing the totem pole and balancing on the seesaw 30ft high was definitely an exhilarating high point for the girls (and teachers!). All the staff at Closer to the Edge were great fun, encouraging those more nervous to kick their fear of heights, and... More

My family visited last year and had a fantastic afternoon. Unfortunately upon trying to book a return visit, we found that there is now a minimum number required for booking which precluded our family of 3. We live in the local area so the thought of a long drive to get to one of the other sites is not appealing... More
