VISITOR EXPERIENCE

 we know that visitor experience is of huge importance and we are always looking to develop our service and facilities to ensure that there is something for everyone onsite.  We are always looking to improve our service and will always listen to your feedback.  

HUGE VARIETY OF PROGRAMMES

You will see from this site that we have tried to offer something to everyone – clubs, community groups, schools, businesses, people with specific needs, the general public etc….  This means that each group will have different needs and different schedules. We are always here to help so when you make a booking with us we will guide you through everything that you need.  In the meantime here are a few of the basics:

BOOK ONLINE

We recommend you purchase your adventure passes online to guarantee your entry. We will need to monitor entry and exit very carefully in the new ‘socially distancing’ era.  Advance purchase is much more affordable and you guarantee entry to our site and all that it has to offer.

HOW TO FIND US

We’re based at Baggeridge Country Park in Sedgley, five miles south of Wolverhampton centre and easily accessible from Birmingham and Telford. Please be aware that the car park operates on a ‘pay and display’ basis.  Our adventure facilities are located close to the Park Café next to the lower car park.

WEATHER

We offer all-weather activity! If we have to cancel your booking due to extreme weather conditions, a member of staff will be in touch on the morning of your booking.  If you are unhappy to complete the course in the rain, we recommend that you check the weather forecast and postpone your visit but we need a minimum of 48 hours notice.

 

opening times

For general public bookings we are open during the season from 10 – 5.30pm during weekends, school holidays  Best to book in advance for a session, sessions start at 10am (Adventure Parties only) 12pm and 230pm and last for 2 hours, we can also run evening sessions for parties and clubs.  Group bookings are available all year round 10am to 8pm.

 

what to wear

We advise you to wear whatever you feel comfortable in along with sturdy footwear such as trainers or flat boots. Skirts, sandals and Crocs are not permitted. Always dress for the weather – during the winter months don’t forget your hat and gloves! Please bear in mind that you will be asked to wear a harness.

SPECTATORS

We have put a lot of thought into providing viewing areas where, if you are a spectator, then you almost feel part of the experience.  Large decked areas with seating mean that you are able to encourage and support those who might need it when standing at least 30 ft off the ground.  Visitor experience is very important to us. 

 

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!

 Claire Parker

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!

 Simon J

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

Fabulous set up with really great staff - they ensure that everyone feels safe and are very encouraging whilst allowing them to take the independence to complete challenges - very impressed

Samantha Shuttleworth
