Discover the night time adventurer in you!

Adventurers can explore our fun and family friendly high ropes course, navigating their way around bridges and beams high in the nights sky. We have two different high ropes levels so you can choose how high you dare to go, the tallest measuring over 9 metres! Our specially trained staff will kit you out with a full body harness and brief you on safety on the ropes. Head torches are included for this event.

Your Sky Ropes adventure lasts 75 minutes, including kitting out and a safety briefing. Once you back on the ground you can grab yourself a hot chocolate and toast marshmallows round our camp fire before heading home.  

When you’re on the ropes you’re free to explore how you choose, selecting your own route and moving at your own pace. Instructors will always be on hand for any help or questions.

Our friends from North Essex Astronomical Society are also holding their free public star gazing session alongside this event, more information on this can be found here:


  • Children over 1m in height can participate if accompanied by a chaperoning adult. One adult per child. Chaperones also need a separate ticket. Once measuring 1.22m (4ft) or over, you're able to go on the course unaccompanied.
