Details

The amazing new aerial experience at Conkers offers an awesome adventure built for you to conquer! You really have to try this brilliant mental and physical challenge – but don’t worry - you do not have to be a top athlete to enjoy it.

The Hi Ropes Adventure has 15 aerial sections to complete – with climbing nets , high level walkways,. The Hi Ropes course is around 30 ft above ground but participants are always clipped on to the safe roller system.

The Lo Ropes Course is just the ticket for junior visitors to traverse and build confidence – offering 10 different and exciting stage challenges. The course is up to 10ft above the ground and participants are always clipped on to the safety rail as they negotiate the obstacles.

The Climbing Wall is around 30ft high – it has many routes and uses 2 auto-belay systems to ensure that climbers are always safe.

The amazing Powerfan Descender is 40' high – step into the void off the platform and you will experience the sensation of free-falling – before your descent is slowed at the last minute – a real leap of faith!

The fast and furious 110 metre Zip Wire – is a great way to finish the course
