Mobile climbing wall, body zorbs and bike track

During most holidays the mobile climbing wall, body zorbs and the new bike track and obstacle course visit several venues across Aberdeenshire holding drop in sessions for all the family. You can simply turn up and pay for a go.

Children remain the responsibility of their adult carers whilst at these activities.

The climbing wall is suitable for all ages from 3 years to adults and the body zorbs are suitable for approximately 5 years to 12 years (depending on size and weight). The bike track is suitable for any age who can confidently ride a bike (we provide the bikes).

Each go lasts about 10 minutes. This may vary slightly depending on how busy the session is.
