Family and nieces and nephews went today had a blast they gave us a short run though then left us to be, the sling climbing is fun gives the thrill of you doing own rope and coming back down trust is big.... Very much recommended.... Staff were great friendly

My daughter had her 10th Birthday here last Sunday and she loved it. I too loved it as the staff were absolutely brilliant, very friendly, extremely helpful and very patient with the kids. I would highly recommend Hangdog for kids parties. We did our own Pizza catering, however catering is available in house also. Thanks again Hangdog

We recently had a family day here, for our extended family. We had kids aged from 7-16 as well as some big kids climbing too. Hangdog staff were excellent, very informative and obliging. The kids loved the rock climbing but I think they all found the caving just as much fun. The smiles on their faces said it all. For... More

My children aged 10 and 12 and my partner have been to Hangdog three times now and always have a fun and challenging three or so hours. Climbing challenges them mentally and physically and the smiles when they reach new heights are great. Each climb can be more challenging depending on which "path" you take.

Nearly every time I visit the Hangdog I meet new people , have a great time and get back home feeling better than before. That is mainly thanks to the amazing people and super friendly staff. Even going there alone is no problem, you can meet people to climb with fairly easy. If you are in the Gong, don't miss... More

Fantastic fun. Kids love going there especially for parties. Staff are very friendly and are eager to help. The new cave section is great, but needs forced ventilation to prevent it from getting excruciatingly hot in the summer months.

I have been here several times, along with doing outdoor climbs at Mt Keira. It is a great place to learn and build confidence and also build strength. It is great for kids parties also.

Always great climbing and friendly staff. It is in a prime location to get there and there is plenty to do with a gym upstairs as well.
