Indoor Via Ferrata

Indoor Via Ferrata


Skyline is the UK's newest indoor aerial adventure and Europe's first indoor Via Ferrata. It is a challenging course with some fantastic obstacles to overcome. Just like traditional Via Ferrata courses, you will clip yourself onto a cable that takes you on an awesome adventure. The journey takes you through the 'Squeeze Press' tunnel, up the 'Lofty Ladders', swings across the walls on the 'King Swing' and for the ultimate thrill-seekers finale: 'SkyJump Extreme' - a rapid 20 metre descent with 6 metres of free fall (optional!). This is the ultimate all weather adventure challenge. Also available is The Launch, a mini Skyline journey for those who would like a taster of the Skyline.
