High Ropes course


Pupils of all ages have the chance to try a high and low-ropes course at Stanborough Park in Welwyn Garden City.

The Vertigo Adventures course has launched special rates for educational groups, to help foster team work amongst pupils and boost their confidence.

Groups can choose a session on the 10-feet tall Monkey Trail low ropes, which feature nine elements including sky islands and twin tube tunnels, or the more challenging 40-foot Hawk’s View High Ropes, which offer a bird’s-eye view of 126 acres of parkland.

The Monkey Trail costs £8 per student, and the Hawk’s View costs £12. For every 10 pupils who book one teacher goes free.

Pupils can also choose an extra activity for an additional £5. Options include The Flying Fox, which is a 165-foot zipwire, The Plummet, which is a 40-foot leap on the powerfan descender, or a Crazy Climb to the top of the tower.

Groups also have the opportunity to try a team-building workshop, with activities such as Jacobs Ladder, where teams try to reach the top of a giant Jacobs Ladder suspended 40-feet in the air, High All Aboard, which is a trust exercise and balancing act, Crate Stack, Gladiator Challenge and Tarzan Jump.

Team building workshops last around £90 and cost £15 per student, and include a dedicated instructor.

Activities are available for all ages, from KS1 to KS4 and beyond into further and higher education. Teachers can have a free familiarisation visit and a full risk assessment can be provided.

Rates quoted are for a minimum of ten students.
