There are now two new exciting family attractions at Keswick Climbing Wall: “Rookery Woods”, an adventure play area for the under 8’s and a thrilling 170 m, or 558 feet Zip-line.
Rookery Woods is an outdoor play area for young adventurers. Designed for anyone 8 years and under it includes a mini zip line, soft archery, orienteering, a sheep hunt, climbing and traversing, scrambling, creative play, a balance trail, traditional games and more. Set in the woodland surrounding Keswick Climbing Wall, this outdoor activity, with free onsite parking, is available daily 9am to 6pm.
The Zip-line sets off from a 14m tower and takes you flying 170m over the fell-side with stunning views of Skiddaw, Blencathra and the Helvellyn range all around. Suitable for anyone aged 8 and over, slots for this thrilling activity can be booked on their own or as part of an activity day package.
Debbie Beament, Keswick Climbing Wall Manager said “We have been working hard to create somewhere that can keep the whole family, regardless of age, adventuring all day. With Rookery Woods, the youngest members of the family can now be kept busy in the great outdoors, while the older members are out on their half or full day activity.
The Zip-line is a project we have been working on for a while and we are delighted that it’s been completed in time for the school holidays. We are now taking bookings for the zip sessions and it’s proving to be very popular. At 170m, it’s one of the longer zip lines in this area and it is open 7 days a week: you just need to call us to book your runs.
We are also offering an Adventure Day package, which is fantastic value. You get £85.50’s worth of activities for £65.00 pp and you will have the chance to try orienteering, archery, climbing, high ropes and the 170m zip line. It’s a full and busy day on one site and with free parking”.
