“We had a bloomin brilliant time at Challenge Academy yesterday! Myself and my partner tagged along with my younger brothers and we’re so glad we did! 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, and making sure I come back for more goes on that power fan. Thank you Challenge Academy! ” read more…

I visited with some family friends who have young children (7 and 9), we all had a great laugh. The instructors were professional and entertained the kids, we felt that we were all catered for. The younger kids did the ultimate package with the zip wire at the end, one of my friends children was very nervous but the instructors offered loads of help and encouragement. The prices are really fair, it’s definitely great value for money. In the whole park there is a nice coffee shop and playing park, parking is cheap too. Great day out! ” read more…

“Mel I would just like to say what a fantastic team building day we had with your team, there were many challenges throughout the day that really made us think about how we had to work as a team to achieve our goal, and also support each other to do this. We felt challenged physically and mentally, and above all we had fun!. We all noticed the improvement we made as a team from the morning session, to the afternoon session. I am confident that this experience will make a difference to our team work in the future. Thank you to you and your team, from all of our team “

“Just a quick note to thank you and your staff for facilitating such a fantastic set of activities for us. The students are still buzzing from the experience and we all thought that you showed great patience and sensitivity when dealing with our pupils. Working with children with severe learning difficulties can be daunting and we were pleased that you showed the utmost respect for them which resulted in some fantastic achievements…….we will definitely be booking with you next year “

“Thanks for the help this week. I have used a few High Ropes courses over the year. Yours was the best.  Also, your team were much more than High Rope technicians. Greg and Chris were excellent in giving feedback to the delegates.   If I get a chance to refer you to others, I will do so without hesitation…”

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! ” read more…

“We went bank holiday monday with our 2 autistic sons. Both wanted to try the high ropes, but one decided, when he was up there that it was too high and wanted to come down onto the low ropes. This didn’t cause a problem for the guys that were there and happily swapped him over. They thoroughly enjoyed it. The zip wire was different to ones that they’ve been on before and they really enjoyed it and my son came down on the powerfan after some encouragement and was really glad he did. Definitely worth a day out really nice guys and very good value for money. Will definitely be visiting there again soon.” read more…

I bought this trip for my sister as a birthday present. She admitted it was the best birthday present anyone had ever given her. 
We are not the outdoorsy type and I’m scared of heights , but i was determined to get out of my comfort zone. So I tried every activity they had . The staff were really nice and friendly, they didn’t rush me even though I was being a chicken most of the time . 
I am visiting again , until I conquer my fear of heights. This was the scariest thing I’ve ever done, it was also the most fun I’ve had . I’ll keep going back till I’m no longer scared.” read more…
