EXTREME SPORTS IN CORNWALL
Of all the things to do in cornwall, you want to jump off a cliff? Be our guest.
Last year we threw thousands of you – all types, shapes and sizes – off Cornwalls newest and most innovative attraction. In 2009, the opening of The Zip and Hoverworld at Adrenalin Quarry saw adrenalin junkies, thrill seekers, bold mums and twice-thinking dads (and vice versa), whole families from toddlers to grandpas, little boys to old ladies (no offence Gladys and Dennis) all flocking to South East Cornwall for the chance to fly down what was at the time The UKs Longest Zip Wire or power a hovercraft solo around the quarry lake.
If youre after outdoor pursuits & extreme sports, Cornwall is now the place to visit in the UK. Whether youre a Newquay-bound party animal or a family wanting more buzz for your holiday bucks, Cornwall caters for it all with great venues for abseiling, climbing, coasteering, surfing, motorsport, quad biking, kayaking, even zorbing.
Once youve made the right choice that youre coming to Cornwall, or youre lucky enough to live here, then the top of your places to visit list has got be Adrenalin Quarry. Were really easy to find, just off the A38 near Liskeard (handy when youre entering or leaving the county). Were also the only place in Europe
where you can dive down a massive zip wire, learn how to wild swim and coasteer and race karts at Kartworld – all in one day out.
Outdoor adventure used to be the preserve of dedicated adrenalin enthusiasts and all the organisation and preparation that went with that. The Zip has changed everything.
Its made the ultimate high ropes buzz immediately accessible to all: families, schoolchildren, people with disabilities, toddlers to senior citizens – you can all just turn up and experience the incredible freedom of flying within minutes of arrival.

Gravity doesnt discriminate. Nor do we. We throw everyone off our cliff with equal relish.
THE VIEW FROM THE ZIP
Every day, we see kids running to the viewing deck and stopping dead when they look out across the lake. It gets them every time.
Adrenalin Quarry is a great place to just hang out and take in the scenery. The lake, the shore, the cliff ledges and the woods teem with life: seabirds, ducks, Canada geese, Cornish Chuffs, buzzards, peregrines, rabbits.
They all seem unfazed by the visitors. We come and go, theyre here for the duration.
There are other big gravity rides in the UK, but none are as much fun, worth talking about, as easy to get on, as easy to get to. And NONE are in such an awesomely beautiful setting.
FEEL THE FEAR…
The wires stretch into the distance. The water ripples way below. The harness holds you tight and your heart starts pumping. The instructor hooks you up, checks all is secure...
Then its just you ... and the drop.
…DO IT ANYWAY
Time to go. Some tremble, some cant wait for the release. Everybody lands with a smile. What fear?
