Happy Customers

Highly recommend their taster session for kids. I took my 7 year old daughter for the 1.5hr session and she loved it. It was a great challenge for her helped massively by the encorgagement and motivation of Matt, the instructor. Never pushed too hard but helped Anna achieve her goal …. to reach the top. Of all the activities we did at the weekend, Anna said her highlight was the climbing wall.

Love the fact they have a cafe on the next floor with a viewing gallery …. Great to watch your kids climb past you!

Looking forwards to the next visit … thanks again Matt!

Brought 2 kids (8 & 10) – the older child had had a previous bad experience and was slightly reluctant – the teaching and encouragement from Matt the instructor was inspirational! Both children loved it and he really left our son feeling confident and desperate to climb again! Thanks!
