Join us to take part in two exciting challenges.
A 40 second journey through twists, turns and drops in a hair-raising experience not for the faint-hearted. It is the tallest and longest tunnel slide in the world.
Brace yourself for the exhilarating descent of the UK's highest freefall abseil. Hold your breath as you step "Over The Edge" for your 80m adrenaline-fuelled drop.
Everone taking part will be asked to raise a minimum of £250. This covers the costs of the events for the day plus a contribution to the Foundation.

Over The Edge
We strongly recommend you familiarise yourself with the full terms and condtions of the Abseil here. https://wireandsky.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/2018-Terms-Conditions-Abseil-Participants.pdf
Each Abseiler must be:-
• 14 years or older (with parental consent for under 18’s and supervision at a 1:2 ratio)
• A minimum height of 1.2 m
• A weight of less than 19 stone (120kg).
• Able to wear a harness which has a maximum width waist of [130cm] and a
maximum upper thigh width of [75cm] which are the maximum measurements of our harnesses.
• If you do not meet these requirements you will not be permitted to Abseil.
You must wear appropriate clothing under your harness, which is suitable for the weather conditions. The clothing worn should cover your upper arms, upper legs & body as a minimum, not restrict your movement, obstruct your vision, lead to overheating in
warm weather, be too cool for cold weather or become entangled in your safety equipment. For this reason, skirts, dresses, tank tops, short shorts or suchlike are not appropriate. We reserve the right to refuse to allow you to participate in the Abseil if we
consider that your clothing does not meet these requirements or otherwise poses a health and safety risk to you or other Abseilers..
Abseils will take place in all weather conditions except high winds, persistent rain, lightning, heavy snow or ice or other weather conditions, which we reasonably believe make it unsafe to participate in the Abseil.
2. There is a risk that the weather will worsen during the Abseil preparation phase. A refund will not be issued if you choose to leave prior to completing the Abseil because you
are dissatisfied with the weather if abseils are still operational.
