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!

I bought this 'experience' on Groupon for my 2 children. It's hideous! Shabby and unsafe. No harnesses on climbing wall. Solid concrete floor next to climbing obstacles. It's dreadful. I'm surprised this place has passed health and safety regulations! Avoid!
