I booked the experience as a surprise for my boyfriend and then on the day when we arrived I found out he had vertigo! The staff were all great and our instructor made my nervous boyfriend feel really comfortable and there was no pressure. He ended up facing his fears and climbing the wall faster than I could! It was a fantastic experience and leaves you with a huge sense of achievement. Sian x
