Had a wonderful time in Activate during the Christmas Grotto Season. Mrs. Claus was great with the children. We went on a very quiet time, our choice. Santa was wonderful and natural with our daughter... more »
Nice spot. We visited the soft play area with toddlers. Good value and delicious scones 👍🏻
Looks like a great climbing facility, but is unfortunately unprepared to accommodate drop ins. An induction or belay test is required (absolutely fair enough) for bouldering or routes respectively but unfortunately no member of staff was on the roster that could perform either (I was also told the belay test took an hour and has to be booked in advanced - haven't seen that in a climbing gym before as usually its about 15 minutes and performed on the spot). Pretty disappointing - would keep this in mind if you plan to just drop in there.
