Abseiling is a great way to de-stress, unwind and escape to the great outdoors at the same time! This abseiling experience is all about feeding your fear, as you lean back over the edge and drop down a 30ft (10m) high abseil tower near the Ashdown Forest, East Sussex.
This two hour experience is designed for you to learn the basics of abseiling, under the supervision of a fully qualified instructor. Your instructor will run through a safety briefing and some abseiling techniques before it's your turn to have a go. The enthusiasm of the staff really is contagious, meaning you will be sure to have an exciting and enjoyable time.
On most sessions you will have at least 3-4 abseils and once confident, your final abseil will conclude with a little catch - you'll be wearing a blindfold!
From complete beginners to those who have tried abseiling many times before, the sessions will be tailored to suit your own experience.
