'Kids had an amazing time yesterday.  Thank you to all of your staff for making the session fun but with background covid issues adhered to.  Kids finally felt free to explore and just enjoy themselves.  Well Done.' - Charlotte Smart - Facebook Review 5 July 2020


Adventurers can traverse through the high and low ropes courses, take a leap of faith down the PowerFan Descender and swing through the trees along the Zip Wire – above all, a high-level adventure guaranteed to get the adrenaline pumping! The course has state of the art safety systems and all instructors are highly qualified outdoor specialists. 


There is so much to experience on our high ropes course.  You can climb jump, swing, traverse and slide, all under the direct supervision of our brilliant team.  Our rail safety system means that once you are harnessed up and attached to the system then you are safe and unable to unclip yourself.

The instructors are amazing and so encouraging when you have those occasional ‘I can’t do this’ moments! There are lots of them which means their organisation is second to none, safety is paramount and all this for a fantastically great value price! I didn’t know this place existed but I’ll be spreading the word, Thank you Challenge Academy!

Staff were first class, very patient and helpful. Safety is no1 priority but this doesn’t detract from the fun. Totally recommend this for something that the whole family can do together – it’s great for the kids to see Mommy and Daddy more scared than they are! Well done guys!

Thank you to all the staff for a brilliant fun educational day! It gave our pupils with less confidence a chance to shine and our pupils with confidence an extra challenge. The teamwork involved has encouraged our pupils to support each other not only during physical activities but also during class lessons. We will definitely be returning during the summer as one of our invaluable ‘Sports Experience’ programmes

 Rough Hay Primary School
