Altitude Challenges - Tuesday 25th August
To round off our summer activities come along for some adrenaline fuelled challenges!

Then try the climbing wall taking you higher, up to 11 metres! Finally round off your action packed session with the power fan descender, a leap of faith from 11.5m and take the chance to free-fall before being stopped safely just before the ground!
Aged 8 and over? Start out on the low ropes course (5 metres above the ground) before tackling the high ropes (10 metres above the ground) taking on elements such as the burma bridge, islands in the sky, stepping stones and swinging tyres. Next take on the climbing wall taking you up to 11 metres. Finally round off your action packed session with the power fan descender, a leap of faith from 11.5m high and take the chance to free-fall before being stopped safely just before the ground!
Completing all the elements of the Altitude challenges should take around 1 to 2 hours so after all that excitement bring your picnic and join us in the parkland for lunch, a great way to celebrate a busy summer of FunQuest activites.
- There is a £3 to £5 suggested donation per child for each event; this small donation helps us run events for you so please make a contribution at each session if you can.
Please ensure that your child is fit and well to take part in our events; it's no fun if you're feeling poorly and spreads bugs to others.
Age guides are given as this is the minimum age we anticipate enjoying an event, however for those on the cusp of a minimum recommended age please use your discretion as you know your child best. When an age is given as, for example, “Strictly age 8+” no children outside of this age range will be able participate.
Please note that all children under the age of 8 must be accompanied by an adult throughout our events. Children aged 8 and over can be left at our events provided they are signed in and out by a responsible adult and a contact number is given.
Participants must follow the instructions given by our leaders and volunteers at all times. Failure to do so or inappropriate behaviour may result in children being unable to attend future events.
If an event is marked as "fully booked" we usually operate a waiting list; if you would like to be added to this list please follow the relevant link and enter your details, if a place becomes available we will be in touch.
