We were lucky enough to do both tubing and white water rafting. We had a fantastic experience. The staff and instructors were great and were very encouraging to my daughter who felt a little nervous. Would recommend for a good family day out and lots of laughter. Oh and lots of getting wet!!!!

We arrived early and had a look around the course first, and have to say we thought it didn't look great. How wrong we were!!!! The guides and the course were all fantastic! The facilities could do with more showers but the wet suits were excellent quality and everything else was spot on. We had a blast and the rate... More

WHITE WATER RAFTING You are called by a coach, who goes through what you are going to wear. Wetsuit, flotation aid and helmet. Wear shoes that doesn't matter if they get wet. You change and then the coach will take you through safety instructions, which really came in handy. Don't think ' oh iv been on a real river' this... More

Kayaking (Park & Play Sessions Sundays PM & Tuesday Evenings) - Great place to introduce white water for those ready for the next step (Important - Under the right supervision by a competent instructor / experienced paddler). You can start on the lower sections and slowly work your way up the course as some of the sections get a bit... More

We went for a birthday treat and had the best day ever. It was brilliant fun and the staff were amazing. Highly professional and constantly safety conscious. If you go wear suncream! (We forgot). There were a lot of kids in the tubing session and they had a great time too. The leader (I think called joe) was great with... More

What a brilliant set up! We brought 6, between the ages of 10-12yrs. The whole session was spot on, ran on time and very smoothly. Kids had a blast and parents felt totally reassured they were safe. Highly recommended. 😀

Great staff that are well trained and friendly. It was a small group so plenty of time to do the course and extra dare devil activities too. Not... More

Booked the experience of white water tubing with family. Sadly only 3 of the 5 of us were provided with full body wetsuits which left my daughter and daughter in law in tatty wetsuits with holes in and no arms - consequently they were freezing cold and got out early. We spent far more time out of the water and... More

Fabulous white water tubing experience, went with my son and a we both had great fun thanks to the friendly and well trained staff. Included a safety briefing followed by at least an hour in the white water rapids, the experience started small before building up to the full ride around. Definitely recommend this for both children and adults.
