The Deal

Vertigo avoiders can climb to heights, walk over tree fallen trunks, and tackle rope bridges on this high ropes course (usually £24 per person). Whether climbers have a nervous disposition or consider themselves fearless, they are clipped into a harness at all times, and the instructors are on hand to offer encouragement, advice and to ensure the equipment is always correctly administered. Kitted out in their sturdy shoes and comfortable clothing, guests can redo their favourite course many times or complete all the courses in their two and a half hours, hopefully leaving some time for the climbing wall, the big zip wire and the fan descender.

Choose from the following options:

  • £18 for two on weekdays (63% off)

  • £34 for four on weekdays (65% off)

  • £22 for two on weekends (54% off)

  • £38 for four on weekends (60% off)

The Merchant

Rope Runners climbs to the top of the Essex Tourism Awards, winning the award for Best Tourism Experience 2011.
