I'm justifying my poor review based on improvements that need to be made on the Ultimate Extreme (£89) experience. The day itself was good but there were many things which disappointed me and I feel I need to express my thoughts. 1. There is not enough information on what needs to be brought on the trip (it just says no... More

Absolutely terrific. Something very different and genuinely unexpected. A real adventure - scrambling, zip wires, abseiling and more - nothing too tricky on the Challenge, but more than enough to get the adrenaline running. The leaders are really good - who knew the history of a mine could be so interesting. Cool drive to the venue in battered old LandRovers.... More

The instructors were amazing, clear instructions and could see I was nervous, helped me take my mind of the heights we were at. I was amazed at... More

My second visit to this attraction and still a big wow, not for the fair hearted but well worth a go,one of those places where you will see something new each time you visit. I can't wait to go again and go further down the mine.

Wanted to do something different with the kids and this ticked all the boxes. Andy the instructor ensured we all had a great time. Great value and lots of fun will have to try extreme challenge next.

Had an absolutely fantastic day yesterday with Pred and Dan, (who were the most incredible guides). Quite simple one of the most mentally and physically challenging things I have done for a long time but also the most fun and I am so glad we booked this trip. The free fall drop at the end was the cherry on the... More

What an amazing day underground with Pred and Dan in the Cwmorthin mine. Zip wires, bridges, climbs, via ferrata and the free fall. Great leadership and group with lots of information on the mine and life there that had me seeing the families working the caverns as we played. I wonder what they would think of the use to which...
