Many different climbs catering for the different levels of ability. Workers are very on to it watching all climbers and by standers keeping them safe. And plenty of time in the time slot for kids to get tired. Ya

Had a great day biking the Old Coach Road trail. The bikes were really good, the staff were very helpful and friendly. Fab half day trail that outlet 11 year old managed well.

Great indoor activity when the weather packs it in. My only issue was the price for the amount of time. I understand it's the only indoor activity in the town but $15 for an hour is steep. Also should advise climbers or spectators to check...More
