Description

Otterspool Adventure Centre is an Outdoor Adventure Park open to all members of the community and we warmly welcome people from all walks of life to enjoy the experiences and facilities we have to offer. We pride ourselves on being welcoming and inclusive. We work closely with charities, local authorities, schools and Universities to ensure that all people who would like to come and enjoy the centre can do so in an exciting, welcoming and safe environment.

Our mission is to deliver positive, fun and enriching experiences that enable a sense of freedom for participants allowing them to grow in confidence and learn new skills whilst having a great time. We aim to achieve this through a range of activities delivered in a respectful and supportive environment. We hope to promote teamwork, communication skills and an interest in the outdoors.

Through our varied activities we aim to provide both adults and children with a new and exciting experience. We inspire people to become more active by introducing physical exercise in a fun and innovative way.

We offer the following activities:
High Ropes - The High Ropes Course at Otterspool is one of the largest aerial assault courses in Europe. It is a fun-packed adventure of over 52 elements and is staged over two levels to ensure that everyone who visits us gets a chance to push themselves to the limit

Climbing - Our climbing tower is spread over two faces, providing two very different challenges designed to test your strength, ability and determination.

Abseiling - Enjoy the adrenaline rush and sense of satisfaction that you will get from mastering our abseiling wall. Our instructors will be with you every step of the way, guiding and encouraging you down our 50ft wall.

Obstacle Course - Take on our 16 point ground based Obstacle Course. Learn how to approach and conquer each of our unique and entertaining obstacles under the guidance of one of our instructors, before really going for it with a speed lap to see who has what it takes to beat the course!

Team Building - Teambuilding at Otterspool is the perfect activity to bring people together to learn to solve problems as a team. All of our activities are led by fully trained and qualified instructors who are there to make sure you get the most out of the challenges no matter what your age or level of experience.
