Features at The XC include a super modern skate park, a 14m indoor climbing wall, one of the biggest organic indoor caving systems in the world, multi routed bouldering wall and a challenging high ropes course as well! Basically, if you're full of energy and have super feet or fingers and no fear, this is your place!

Boasting complex street section, Hubbas, pool and bowl, the Skatepark is an intricate joyland of rails and pipes if you know what you're doing, and a friendly land of flat surfaces if you're more at that end of things! Beginners are warmly welcomed so long as they're padding up properly! You can use skateboards, skates or 26 single speed bikes.

The High Ropes course hits 12m high and is for hardy over 8s, with a series of safe but unnerving challenges to test your balance and bravado! Excitingly accessed through the caving system, too!

Over 6s can try the caving and bouldering experiences so long as you're in there with them and it's really worth going in because with 150m of caving tunnels and caverns they'll be out of sight most of the time if you don't. And having more fun than you! There's another 200 sq m of bouldering, however, so if you really don't fancy it that's easier to supervise."
