My son wanted to go on the zip wire for ages, so we went up to see . unfortunately from the start of zip wire ride it was apparent they didn't have enough staff to facilitate it. A member of the public was as to assist staff to bring my son up the ladder and to go ahead of him on zip wire. My son got stuck just over half way and had to pull himself in by hand with no gloves. Thinking this was as bad as it could get he was left hanging on other side crying and in agony as member of public couldn't open the harness. It took 3 days for swelling to go! Staff in coffee shop gave ice but no manager available???

Great fun and staff put you at ease. We only did zipling but would love to go back and try some of the other activities available.

A fun activity day, whether it's a team bonding day or fun competitive bit of craic with friends. Don't need to be overly sporty either. You do tend to get rather dirty and no showers are provided so be warned! I would do it again and would recommend.

Visited with my Mum and kids ( 10 and 11). Had a great time. The staff were wonderful. The new zip wire is not as dramatic as the old one despite being much longer though.
