My 10 year old adventurous water loving son thought this was amazing. We had a fun experienced instructor who was brilliant. We’re already planning doing this again next year.

What a great couple of hours! Visited here with my niece (11) and 2 kids (2 & 7). They all had a great time, the staff couldn’t have been friendlier or more accommodating. Will def be back!

Had a really lovely few hours here with our 5 year old. The play area is brilliant and kept her entertained for ages. The bouldering area is great and it’s really nice we could all go together as a family. Cake and coffee were nothing...More

Tried out this climbing wall over the Christmas holiday while visiting Keswick. This is a pretty good wall, it is reasonably big in terms of the number of routes and height of routes. Plenty of shorter routes that are top roped, and a couple of...More

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
