Take to new heights with this much-loved activity that sees children introduced to climbing in a thrilling, fun and safe way.

Our high ropes course is run by trained instructors who will talk groups through the element of the course the session is focused on and give a full safety briefing before offering tips on the best technique.

There are different sections to enjoy on the high ropes course with each session lasting 1 ½ hours. Simply advise us which elements you’d like to include in your itinerary and we’ll be happy to oblige!

Crate Stack

Working in teams of 2-4 climbers with their peers helping to build the stack, children must work as a team to use crates to try and construct the highest stack while stood on the top of it.

Gladiator Challenge

Belayed by their peers, participants try to climb the Gladiator Wall. There will be different challenges at different heights including the cargo net and tyres.

High All Aboard

Participants climb up a telegraph pole to the small platform at the top. Once four participants are stood on the platform they must hold hands and lean out as far as they can. This challenge will test the trust and confidence within the group and individuals.

High See-Saw

Young climbers will ascend a telegraph pole to the giant see saw at the top. Once four participants are stood on the see saw they must try and level it out. High see-saw tests the trust and confidence within the group.

Jacob's Ladder

Working in teams of 2-4 climbers and belayed by their peers, participants try to climb the giant ladder. The higher the teams get the further apart the rungs on the ladder become. Teams must work together to ascend the structure, lifting and climbing on each other to get as high as they can.

Trapeze

Participants climb up a telegraph pole to the small platform at the top. The instructor then counts down to when the participant needs to jump from the platform to catch the trapeze bar – a real test of nerves!

Traversing elements

Participants cross the inclined log to reach the other side and decide whether to continue to go up or down. If they choose to go up they climb to the next level, which is the Postman's walk. Once this is completed, the final stage is to cross using the multi-vines.
