This place is easy to find and has lots of car parking space. All staff are well trained and very patient. I booked on line and they found my booking on arrival no problem. Staff went through an important safety briefing with the equipment and how to use it, and made sure it fitted everyone individually before going on a... More

I booked an Archery experience for my Dad for Father's Day. We actually ended up using the experience on his birthday :). As it turned out we were the only 2 on the experience that day for our time slot so we got a full 45mins to an hour to ourselves. I cannot fault the service from Tom, who was... More

We took our 7 year old and 5 friends to Rope Runners and had a great time. The children were in charge of their equipment (clipping on and off ropes, moving their "Rope Runner" through brackets and using the zip line mechanism etc) but this added to the challenge and adventure of the day. We had a couple of boys... More

We absolutely loved it. 2 office working adults and 1 death defying child. The weather was overcast but dry, it was a Saturday morning, time to go to head out to Rope Runners. Upon arrival we joined another group like ourselves, staff fitted us with harnesses, helmets, and clearly went through safety procedures. During the procedures we were watching the... More

I took my daughter and 9 friends for the high ropes course for her 10th birthday. They all loved it, some were scared, some were not but all of them had a go. They have a variety of heights so there is something for everyone, even my other 6 year old daughter managed the low course. The safety mechanism is... More

We thought it was great The safety induction was informative, friendly and not too long. Staff were friendly and eager to help - great guidance was given regarding the climbing wall on how to make it more of a challenge There were six courses which all end with a zip wire £20 seems a bit pricy but that was for...

Well organised and good value for money. We did the ropes and you get 2 and half hours on them! There are 6 different courses which include ground level for younger children or the less adventurous. We will be back.

We booked an introductory air rifle session; and then when we were there decided to add the paintball range. Very enjoyable sessions, and my 11 year old really improved in his shooting. The instructor, Sam, was kind and laid back. There was a lot else on the site, which all looked very good, and was popular.

Two teenage boys 15 & 13 had a great couple of hours on the high ropes. The induction was good & the safety system effective & easy for them to manage. Whilst an adult needs to be onsite, you do not need to swing from the ropes with them. My kids really enjoyed it. They were given a lot of... More
