A few of us bowled up at Adrenalin Quarry to jump off the UK's highest and longest and fastest Zip Wire - and my goodness did we zip!!!! The staff are super friendly, very calming and patient and importantly they make sure you're safe - fab, fab fun!

So off we went - right over the top of the quarry above the lake - it was FANTASTIC! Lottie and I did it together - Lottie was 8, I am slightly older. She had some big blue barrels accompanying her to make sure she got to the bottom - the best thing though - she had the biggest Cheshire cat grin on her face as we raced to the bottom. She also screamed more loudly. It was hilarious and we couldn't wait to get back to the top and do it again. You do have a bit of a walk but it gave us chance to go over those mad seconds of zooming. A good idea is to get your friends to meet you at the bottom and drive you back up - that way you can throw yourself down again much more quickly!!!

Adrenalin Quarry has the UK's longest, fastest and highest Zip Wire: 50M high, 490M long, with twin cables for double the fun.

No need to book the zip, just turn up and get ready for the rush, you'll be flying in minutes. No age limit, no excuses. (Min/Max weights for the Zip are 25kg/125kg - min weight may vary with weather conditions).

The Giant Swing

Literally swings over the Quarry - the notion made me giggle - not sure with horror or excitement.  It's a huge swing hanging 50ft off the ground, 150ft over water!  It takes up to three of you in one go, throughly strapped on, to 80° then you're plunged over the lake. Just when you think there’s no turning back and your tummy will never return you pull out of the dive, experience zero gravity, and do it all again backwards.

We didn't get this done on our day - we shall be doing it next time - and I am giggling at the thought! It looks great, terrifying fun - let us know what happens! 

No need to book, just turn up and get ready for the rush, you'll be swinging in minutes.
