What you can expect to find at XC:
Skatepark: XC skatepark has an amazing street section with a huge variety of quarter pipes, flat banks, boxes and manny pads. We have a really impressive concrete bowl, 8ft in the deep end with a 9ft extension. The cherry on the cake is the concrete pool - designed to look and ride just like a back yard pool from California, it has pool coping (imported from California), pool tiles, a filter box (death box) and steps!
Climbing: XC climbing wall is 60m wide, up to 14m in height and is re-set regularly to keep things interesting! There are 6 x auto belays for solo climbers, and a feature wall with tough challenges for the more experienced climber including a 2m over-hang. XC climbing is suitable for all ability levels and for ages 5 years to adult.
Caving: XC has the largest organic indoor caving system in Europe, which is full of twists, turns and even a ‘sump’ which mimics an underwater experience. XC caves are suitable for ages 6 years + and all ability levels.
High Ropes: XC high ropes are 12m above the ground and have 8 challenging obstacle assortments to test your agility, balance and co-ordination. The entrance of the high ropes starts in a 12m caving section before viewing the heights of the High ropes!
XC hosts a wide range of clubs, parties and private tuition. It is suitable for all levels of ability and is open 10am-10pm.
