Owner description: 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.

A very special mention to Dom who, without his knowledge and support, I would not have stepped off the edge on the zip. He was gentle, kind and reassuring. Dom checked and triple checked my harness on both occasions and went out of his way to ease my nerves.
Clare Pettey who was also there early, again, kind and professional and who also, like Dom, didn't rush our conversation.
Clare very kindly strapped my husband and son in to the giant swing and I watched in awe as they swung off.
Dom and Clare are two superb ambassadors for Adrenalin Quarry.
Thanks to Connie for a delicious coffee when we got there and for chatting to us after our adrenalin rushes!
Can't wait to return, thank you ☺

My fiancé and I were away on a trip to Cornwall with my parents. We are 25/26 years old and came across a leaflet with the Adrenalin quarry on it. We didn’t book and drove down from Perranporth where we were staying in around 45 minutes. We didn’t need to pre book and we ended up doing the giant swing and the zip wire! I was a bit nervous but we both thoroughly enjoyed the attractions and would definitely recommend a trip here! The giant swing is more of an adrenalin rush as the first free fall is very scary but well worth it!

They’ve been throwing people off cliffs since 2009, which is a great company motto. We’ve been half a dozen times and they always leave wanting more. The zip wire is the most impressive I’ve seen and the team are very professional.

My grandchildren insist on their yearly dose of Adrenaline Quarry and I get taken along with my heart in my mouth every year. No, I never go on the swings, slide, go-carts etc but just seeing them on these things makes me scared but happy to see the enjoyment they get with each visit. Great visit for families.

We visited with our three kids and I have to compliment the staff who were fantastic and thoroughly professional. The setup is first class and the zipline was fantastic, or that's what I was told by the three kids and was evident from their massive grins! The staff really helped my daughter overcome her fears without any kind of pressure so again my compliments to the staff. We will definitely be back.
