The Urban Challenge is a mobile obstacle course with a difference. Under the watchful eye of our highly-trained instructors, participants are encouraged and empowered as they take on a series of Challenges, specially designed to take them outside their comfort zone. Before they know it, they’ll be facing fears and achieving more than they ever believed they could. You don’t have to be fighting fit or as strong as an ox to take part. A positive attitude and a good sense of humour are far more important. You’ll be able to experience activities such as the leap of faith, an 100ft assault course, climbing and abseiling, zip wires and tyroleans.
The Urban Challenge is a team event for companies, charities and groups of like minded individuals. Each team consists of 4 participants. The event is open to over 18s only.
