Welcome to the exciting world of Indoor Caving.
Our newly opened cave system offers you the chance to experience what it's like to go caving, but in the relative safety of an indoor environment. Navigating the twists and turns of our tunnel system, and squeezing through tight chambers and climbs to conquer the course.
Our cave system is set out of several levels and includes over 200ft of crawling, climbing, collecting areas and a ball pit.
Please note that whilst the cave system is perfectly safe, we have built emergency exits at multiple locations so that anyone who feels uncomfortable can quickly and easily leave the cave system back in to the main centre. If you have suffered from claustrophobia in the past, or currently, then this experience is not for you. If you are looking at booking a party package which includes caving you should first ensure that all participants are not scared of tight or confined spaces.
What does the caving experience consist of?
Your instructor will lead you in to the cave through the entrance hatch, and it's a short crawl to the first collecting area. Here we will gauge how the group is doing, and any unhappy cavers can be easily evacuated. You will then venture through some longer twisting tunnels, either separately, or as a team and then venture up in to the mine.
From here your instructor has multiple tunnels to choose from, in any direction, and they will pick the best one based on how he feels the group’s abilities are.
Time tends to disappear quickly in the cave, and a group of 6 people will lose an hour in no time at all.
What's included in my caving package?
We provide you with an instructor for your session and any and all equipment required. All you need to do is turn up on the day and prepare yourself to have some fun!
Can I combine the caving with climbing and/or bouldering?
Absolutely, we can provide you with a combined climbing/caving experience where we can split the time as you wish, or even split the group with some doing each activity. It's up to you. The name of the game is to have fun and a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
