What we offer
Do you have the head for heights to take on the 30ft “Hawks View” high ropes course? Or perhaps the “Monkey Trail” at just 10ft high will bring the ape out in you. Don’t forget to try the zip, climbing wall or take a leap of faith on the powerfan descender.
What makes us a great choice?
Go learn! From KS1 – KS4 and beyond into further and higher education, you can have an excellent learning outside of the classroom experience at Vertigo Adventures. We offer great rates for educational groups, along with a free teacher ratio of 1 free per 10 students.
Go explore some more! For additional learning experiences, why not consider a team building workshop? With the aid of a dedicated instructor, each session lasts approximately 1.5 hours, costs £15.00 per student – with a maximum of 12 students per session. These workshops are most suited for students aged 8+. Activities include:
A classic team exercise that uses a giant ladder suspended 40ft in the air. This is a true test of co-operation, balance, co-ordination and a degree of strength.
High All Aboard
A real balancing act! Climb the 40ft pole to access a small platform, balance precariously whilst making room for a further 3 people. Encourages teamwork and communication.
This is a test of balance and co-ordination. Stack as many milk crates as possible to build the highest tower. An enjoyable, rewarding and satisfying challenge.
Compete with team mates to ascend the poles, tyres and nets to the top of the gladiator challenge that hangs from a 40ft steel bar. Designed to increase comradeship, patience and control.
First climb a 40ft pole to a tiny platform, then pluck up the courage to leap across to grab the trapeze bar hanging several feet away. A challenge that requires courage and determination, that ultimately becomes a fantastic confidence booster.
Group Sizes Catered For
