Incredible day out. You should 100% do this if you're visiting Keswick. This experience was so fun that we are booking to do it again :) Heather, the host for the day was funny and patient with us and made the day go smoothly.

Hi Elmoremj, We have no age limit on the Ice Wall, the limit starts with our equipment. If the person in question can fit into a size 3 boot then you are good to go. Hope that helps. Feel free to ring us for more details
