Outdoor activities include:
This is one of the most popular activities, and is where you slide down water chutes, jump off waterfalls, dive into pools and wade though water, as you descend a mountain stream.
In our opinion, this is definitely the best…
Test your Head for Heights on the iron walks of Honister Crag. Using a system of iron rungs, wire bridges, ladders and a cargo net, you climb up the vertical cliff face, all whilst safely attached to a safety wire.
Climb in the Mine. This is the same system as the Xtreme, except this is set inside the mountains old mining tunnels and caverns, in the pitch black. For those who’d like to give Via Ferrata a go, but aren’t a fan of heights, this is a perfect option.

For the more confident or experienced, as well more advanced multi-pitch guiding, where you climb up a large rock face up several levels.

Indoor activities include:
Centred on a castle complete with a ballpool, tunnels and ramparts, there is also a rope bridge; a smoke breathing dragon and for the toddlers, a soft play corner.
