Skyline- Indoor Via-Ferrata
WHAT IS IT?
Skyline is the UK’s latest aerial adventure and offers two journeys: The Launch which is aimed at younger participants aged 8 years and over; and Skyline, for participants aged 11 years and over. Just like a traditional Via-Ferrata you will use your safety equipment to attach yourselves to a cable, which is followed through a series of challenging obstacles. No previous experience is required as our qualified and friendly staff with train you to use the specialist equipment and how best to tackle the course!
Via-Ferrata exist in mountain ranges and on cliffs as a leisure activity to help people move through difficult terrain. It is Latin for ‘Iron Way’. Prior to your journey, you will be trained by a qualified Via-Ferrata Guide who will teach you to use specialist equipment to follow a cable which leads you along the challenges. The equipment prevents you from falling to the ground!
It is a perfect activity for thrill seekers, teenage families, organised groups like stag and hen do’s, secondary schools, colleges and universities and anyone who fancies a go!
