JUMP OFF A CLIFF:The Zip at Adrenalin Quarry in South East Cornwall, is the UK’s maddest ever zip wire. Long, high, fast. Twin wires cross the flooded depths of the old quarry, sheer cliffs rise on either side.The Zip is the only place in the UK where you can just turn up and jump. NO NEED TO BOOK! No fuss, no pre-booking, no hours of waiting around – we throw you off our cliff within minutes of arrival. We're easy to find, just off the A38 main road. THE GIANT SWING: IT WILL LEAVE YOU SPEECHLESS. Perched at the top of our cliffs, The Giant Swing hangs 50ft off the ground, 150ft over water. You’re hoisted to 80° then plunged 3-at-a-time over the lake. Just when you think there’s no turning back, you pull out of the dive and experience zero gravity, before doing it all again – backwards. First reactions (after recovery time): ‘I was floating on air for 20 minutes afterwards.’ ‘The most amazing thing I’ve ever done.’ ‘Awesome!’ ‘Someone’s gonna pay for this!’. ‘I want to go home now’.No need to book this either! Suitable for all ages 5 - 96 JUMP RIGHT OFF THE CLIFFS INTO OUR LAKE! COASTEERING with THE BLOB at Adrenalin Quarry is unique. Check out our videos and snaps on facebook. We’re the first coasteering venue where the action’s all freshwater and children aged 10 or more can join in. We’re the only coasteering venue in the world where you feel like you’re on the set of Jurassic Park.Go wild swimming, traverse rockfaces, climb sheer cliffs then jump no-strings-attached into the lake. There’s always a safety boat on the water and BCF/SLSGB-qualified coasteering instructors guide you all the way. We’re also fully AALA registered. All this plus free entry, amazing views, bring your picnic and watch all the action from the viewing decks or down by the lake. Pets on leads are welcome, we're easy to find right by the A238 main road.

Good fun for a break from driving

My 70 year old mum even loved it. The scenery is amazing. Staff super friendly. I've done bigger zip lines but it was a very fun stop off.

Came here with some mates and we all loved it!! Zip wire was amazing, although two of my mates couldn't come down!! The place is all set out well and is in a beautiful part of the country! Staff were great and hopefully will bring some mates here for their birthdays!!

Always looking to try things new my boyfriend and me took the opportunity to try Axe throwing here and it did not disappoint. Our tutor showed us the ropes and we got started with mixed success.

I came here for an afternoon with the girls for my hen do. We all did the zip wire and three of us dared to have a go on the swing! We had such a fun afternoon and made some great memories! I paid the extra £5 for our adventure to be videoed and also got some brilliant still photos... More

We visited on a cold, wet day but that didn't matter a jot! We went on the zip line which was great fun and in beautiful surroundings. We then went swimming in the lake which was glorious (if a little chilly). The staff were amazingly friendly and relaxed. We would highly recommend making this a part of your Cornish adventure.

Wanted to try something different!! OMG it was. Went on the giant swing and zip wire. Fantastic, would recommend it, worth the money, the staff were friendly and explained everything. Recommend purchasing the video as you don't remember all of it. Two crazy ladies from Devon looking out for the next challenge. 11 May 2017

Visited with my dad to do the zip wire. It was amazing! Got there early on a Sunday and it was quite busy but is pretty well organised and we weren't waiting long. Make sure you fill in the forms in the payment area before you queue up or you'll end up queuing twice. The zip wire was so much... More

Went here for my 50th birthday to try out the zip wire which I had wanted to do for a long time and have to say I wasn't disappointed. Lots of other activities for all ages although we felt the prices were a little high. That said if you book online be sure to take advantage of the early bird... More

Adrenaline Quarry has a couple of attractions including a Giant swing which goes out over the quarry, a long zip wire and coasteering. We didn't do the coasteering as it was too cold but I expect adding that into a day would make this a full day out. As it was we did the swing and the children did the... More
