If you've never been to a climbing gym then your first visit might frighten you... No ropes on the wall? Visible scaffolding? Strange letters and numbers everywhere? That's all par for the course. There is no reason to assume it's unsafe, its just unfamiliar. The...More

Amazing place! Nowhere like it purpose built by Nigel who is a very knowlegeable and likeable chap. Various amazing talented, friendly people poodling around doing aerial silks, trapzium, parkour, and people just wombling around hanging on to door knobs and the like. Absolutley fab experience!

Enjoyed what was on offer and the staff were very friendly and welcoming with plenty to see and do which I think I will return with the family

Great new bouldering facilty in Leicester! Run by a really nice guy with a sense of humour who has obviously put his heart + soul into creating a challenging wall that he understandably loves + takes pride in. That's no surprise really as he's scrubbed...More

If you want a taste of obstacle course racing or ninja warrior training without signing up for the real thing or a race, then this is the place to go! Play for an hour or spend half a day there, it is definitely worth a...More
