Attraction Information

Fan of Stone Cold’s Broken Skull Challenge? Time to find out how tough YOU really are on a 25-obstacle outdoor assault course. Kids as young as 7 are welcome to give it a try, so put on your trainers and get ready for action-packed fun for the whole family.

The obstacle course is 1km long and you’ll have 90 minutes to complete it. Just to give you a taste of what’s to come, you’ll face a 10ft wall, a vertical cargo net, wall traverse, monkey bars and many more obstacles. You’re guaranteed a proper physical and mental challenge!  

As you can already tell, The Playground will give you a family day out like no other. By the end of the day you’ll be muddy, tired out and very, very proud. Completing the obstacle course will boost your kids’ confidence - that’s for sure!

  • Assault course with 25 obstacles
  • Fun and challenging family activity
