Blackpool high ropes adventure course takes shape

Blackpool’s exciting new high ropes adventure course at Stanley Park is beginning to take shape. Experts from JMA Adventure are currently building the eleven metre high structure on land next to Blackpool Sports Centre.

The course, which is set to be fun, physical and perfect for team building exercises, educational trips, birthday parties and even just a fun day out, is due to be completed in late April and will open soon afterwards once testing and training is complete.

As well as the challenging eight metre high ropes course, there will also be a four metre high “low ropes” course, for participants with less of a head for heights.

Fearless participants will face challenges from flying down a zip wire into a cargo net and scaling a rock climbing wall to traversing swinging tyres, a series of challenging bridges and obstacles and an exciting “leap of faith”.


Prices will start from just £8 per person and a range of packages will be available, including:

  • Team building and corporate packages for local businesses
  • Curricular and extra-curricular activities for schools and colleges
  • Skill development and team building packages for youth and community groups
  • Birthday parties for younger and older people

The facility is suitable for anyone aged 5 years and up.

Cllr Graham Cain, Blackpool Council’s cabinet member for leisure and tourism, who visited the site to check on progress this week, said: “The build stage looks to be going extremely well and the construction is now really taking shape.

“This is an incredibly exciting project and one which will help Stanley Park to compete with the best parks in the country.”
