What people say rock and rapid

"Great rainy day activity for all the family"

Rock and Rapid testimonial

As a family of five who like to try new things, I can’t recommend this enough. The staff member who helped us was top class. Friendly, accommodating and keen. Although, we were all at different levels of experience, some of us complete notices at climbing – we all managed to spend an enjoyable couple of hours.

Emma E / Indoor Climbing

"Brilliant fun"

Rock and Rapid testimonial

Really good day out and cater for all levels of ability. As complete beginners we were a bit nervous to begin with but soon got up to speed. Very good value for money.

Darren J, Worcester / Indoor Climbing

"Great place and great staff"

Rock and Rapid testimonial

We visited this whole on our holiday on a rainy day, my son enjoyed it so much he wanted to go back so we did. Twice! The staff are super friendly and very knowledgable. We will no doubt be back next year!
