Group Climbing Wall Warwickshire

Group Climbing Wall Warwickshire

Reach new heights as a team when you and your buddies take on the group climbing wall! This outdoor centre in the heart of Warwickshire is a wonderful place to run around blow the cobwebs away and try a new vertiginous sport.

The climbing wall your group will be tackling is 10 metres high. If you can’t picture that it’s just a little bit taller than the normal height of a two storey house. And we’re talking to the point of the roof not the eaves. Imagine clambering up that high and then another metre or two and you get the idea.

So yes you will need a head for heights but no-one in your group is obliged to scale the wall to the very top – you can climb to where you feel comfortable so there’s no need to go out of your comfort zone. But with all your mates standing at the foot of the wall to encourage you you might just surprise yourself with a burst of self-determination and go higher than you expected!

If you’ve never come face to face with a wall like this before let us explain what it’s all about. Wood panels on a very secure metal frame make up the basis of this sheer wall. Tough resin ‘holds’ that represent the natural forms of the rocks are bolted to the wood by expert climbers who create routes of varying difficulty using different colours of holds – in this case the red holds are the hardest as they’re the smallest and most difficult to get a grip on.

As you look up at the wall you’ll see there are three ropes hanging down from the summit. In climbing circles this is known as ‘top-roped’ which means the lines are already set up and ‘all’ you have to do is climb them.

Security safety and basic techniques will all be explained to you and your group at the foot of the wall before you climb. If you’ve never climbed before you’ll start by using any foot and hand holds and as the session progresses you might get to the point of using just two colours. And if you’re wondering how you get back down again you use the ropes to abseil yourself to the ground!

Whether you’re a complete beginner or a proper mountain goat who scrambles up anything with ease there will be a route for all members of your group on this climbing wall. Instructors are always on hand for the duration of your session to secure your climb offer advice and encouragement too.

Group Hyperslide Zipwire

Group Hyperslide Zipwire

You and your team will have to keep your wits about you and prepare yourselves for a high-level challenge when you take on the zip wire in Devon! The silence of this serene corner of the countryside is most definitely broken when plucky wire riders can’t help letting out a scream or two as they plunge over the valley.

The line itself is strung over rather a deep dip that spans around 200m of Devonshire countryside. We have to admit if we were standing on the starting platform we’d be feeling more than a little apprehensive. This is not for those with vertigo. Before you freeze with fear up there the technicians will get you kitted out with the harness and carabiners you need to be able to hook up to the wire.

Now it’s your turn. As you are attached to the line you might very well have your eyes shut and you might not even be able to look down. But before you know it you’ll be gliding off along the wire. That distinctive ‘zzzzipppp’ noise from the friction of metal on metal gets louder and louder as you accelerate faster and faster along the line before coming into land on the other side legs a-dangling to be caught be a member of this Devon team.

No doubt at this point you’ll be quite breathless and unable to speak but in a few seconds the realisation of what you’ve just done will hit and you’re likely to be itching to have another go. So if you’re up for the hike back over why not give it another run? This time you might keep your eyes open the whole way along!

If the zip wire is just a little bit too tame for you this Devonshire centre has come up with a twist for the most daring zippers amongst you. The Hyperbugs team building challenge will see you zooming down the line armed with bug-shaped bean bags that you’ll have to drop onto targets way down below you. Yes it sounds pretty easy but it takes skill and precision to release the bug bag at the right moment. And do you throw it or just let it drop? We’ll let you work out the best method…

Whether you go for the standard voucher for this zip wire in Devon or you opt for the team challenge it’s going to be a vertically thrilling task you’ll be taking on. Of course safety is paramount and the team here will be on hand to lead the way motivate you and congratulate you when you reach the other side of the valley. Happy sliding!

Team Gladiator Assault Course

Team Gladiator Assault Course

Forget Maximus and Commodus in their packed-out Roman amphitheatres this is the Gladiator Assault Course in Devon! Take on all manner of noble challenges at this picturesque outdoor adventure centre near Dawlish and see if you’ve got the strength and will of a fighting fit Russell Crowe!

Admittedly when you turn into the rather idyllic tree-lined driveway at the entrance to this Devonshire venue there’s little sign of the gnarliness that is to come. In fact it all seems rather green and lovely as the trees gently sway in the breeze and the birds sing…

All that is soon forgotten when you find yourselves going up over under and along a myriad of physical challenges worthy of a Roman fighter. As you scamper along sawn off tree stumps trying not to fall off into the mud scrabble up sheer wood walls as though your life depended on it and struggle through the swampy water you’ll be feeling incredibly motivated as your team mates cheer and encourage you on.

The organisers here in Devon say it’s quite an achievement just to make it in one piece to the end of the course as it really is an assault on every muscle in your body. As Maximus said it’s all about ‘strength and honour’. The next day you might well ache in parts you never knew existed and you’ll have a whole pile of muddy damp clothes to deal with but it is so worth it for the euphoria of crossing the finish line.

Just when you think you and your buddies have busted some serious moves to complete the course as a team it’s time to do it all over again! This time if you’re willing it’s all about setting a personal best time as you go head to head with all your comrades. If you make it around the course again with as few penalties as possible you might just make it onto the assault course leader board that takes pride of place in base camp.

Facilities here are excellent You’ll be pleased to hear that after giving your all on the assault course this Devon venue does a nice line in hot showers and changing facilities. There’s even the aptly named Stagger Inn on site where you can enjoy a refreshing beverage fit for a victorious gladiator.

Activity Choice West Sussex

Activity Choice West Sussex

Standby for mud laughs and some pretty crazy entertainment for all of you on this activity day in West Sussex! Whether you are a gang of four or a gaggle of 18 this outdoor pursuits operator prides itself on offering madcap days with multiple activity choices that’ll get you and your team fired up to win.

The activities range from the classics to the downright eccentric. Let us explain. We are offering two ‘off the shelf’ group packages here in West Sussex. If you take the half day you choose three activities if you go for the full day you’ll be doing six different pursuits in the wilds of East Grinstead.

As you might expect from a farm venue with hills tracks and mud there are multiple motorised events on offer. If you like your much-loved driving activities there are things like off roading on the Jungle Run or the Meadow Meander and taking a nippy 125cc Yamaha Breeze quad on an obstacle course.

Heading down the more eclectic route how about trying to get to grips with the pink plastic pig (that’s a Robin Reliant in case you were wondering!) that steers in a bit of an odd way? Or perhaps it’s time to attempt the Dizzymobile that’s like seeing double with two axles that are controlled independently by you spinning round on stools (think a kid in a PhotoMe booth!).

If you fancy being more at one with nature and switching the engines off there’s the thrilling zip wire activity. This aerial runway above the West Sussex countryside is a tree-top ride that’ll either have you screaming or roaring with delight or you’ll end up keeping your eyes shut the whole way down.

Another vertiginous offering is the abseil challenge activity. Once again you might find yourself gazing out over West Sussex’s finest farmlands trying to catch your breath as you gallantly climb the steps in the middle of this purpose-built to the abseil platform at over 12 metres off the ground. One last look around and it’s time to go for it.

These are just a few of the multiple activities that this West Sussex venue offers for group events. All you have to do is found out how many you’ll be on the day buy the voucher and then pick what you and your merry team would like to do. With everything from archery and zip wires included it’s like an A-Z of adrenaline-busting activities that’s sure to get you all revved up.

Woodland Shooting Combo Leicestershire

Woodland Shooting Combo Leicestershire

Targets sniper action assault missions and arrows – this shooting challenge has all this and more! Groups will love this place. Hidden in the depths of the countryside well away from all civilisation you will be able to run around let off steam and shoot ’em up making as much noise as you like. It’s time to attack!

This is an action-packed day out that you will love. Starting at a very civilised 10am there’s no dawn raid here more like a bit of chat and a cuppa as you are introduced to your instructors and listen to that all important safety brief. But that’s when the small talk ends as things start to get competitive from the off with an archery session.

Head to the covered outdoor stands take your recurve bow nock your arrow take a breath pull back and release. Who will be the top shooter? Whoever wins will need to keep the good work up to maintain their top of the leader board position as you’ll be moving on to air rifle shooting next.

This challenge is a classic that’s in a full metal jacket style as you peek out of the metal bunker staring down the barrel of your bolt-action pre-charged air rifles ready to release the trigger and fire off one of your 30 pellets at the field targets. Once again you’ll be all individually scored to see who’s the hotshot of the gang.

Then it’s time for teamwork as you spend a full-on three hours exploring the woodland paintball. A plethora of challenges await including the mission to capture the battle bus storming the enemy on the landing craft assault defending your troop whilst positioned in the bunker of death and resisting capture at the bamboo fort.

As you wander through the forest make sure you expect the unexpected. You might come across a convoy of enemy vehicles refuelling and your captain immediately gives the order to immobilise it and prevent it from leaving. Around another corner you may well discover a radar vehicle sending secret communications. Once again this sort of threat to security needs eliminating.

We think this intense day that’s packed full with activities offers a superb and varied shooting challenge for all participants. All the ammo is included and if you’re a bit trigger happy on the paintball (500 balls are included) you can always buy more to be able to keep firing those shots at the enemy.
