Visited with family on trip back to Telford, really impressed with staff and set up. Kids had a great time on the climbing wall and fan descender. Can't wait for their next visit.

Visited with an 11 and 14 year old. Got the £12 summer ticket which was for the high ropes, climbing wall as powerfan. All good fun. Good high ropes course. Low and high options, 150cm height restriction for highest ropes. Enjoyable. Would recommend
