The level of professionalism was superb and I would recommend that anyone who has a fear of heights or a lack of self-belief try it out. Or if, like me, you think you’re Superman, give it a go – when you freeze mid-air and need a daughter to talk you through it, your ego will come back to earth with a bang.”

Entry to the Park is free with a nominal charge of €2 for all day parking.
Dogs are permitted into the park, provided they are kept on a leash at all times and we would ask owners to kindly clean up after their pets.
