Adventure Team unveils new 42ft Climbing Centre
Nottingham City Council’s Adventure Team launches its brand new facility on the 21st November 2011.
Funded by the Youth Bank of Nottingham, the new challenge at Colwick Park Adventure Centre is a breathtaking 42ft high and people of all ages are dared to put their bravery to the test on a variety of unique high challenges.
Children and adults from across Greater Nottingham are invited to try new outdoor activities including the postman’s walk, gladiator challenge, crate stack, all aboard, two climbing towers and the leap of faith!
The show-stopping leap of faith involves a 42ft solo climb up a wooden totem pole, balancing on a tiny platform at the summit and throwing yourself into mid air…..The bravest will find a stationery trapeze bar awaiting their grasp!
