Had an amazing time, but due to the large size of the group, I was only able to abseil down the tower twice, each time taking no longer than about 30 seconds. So a 2 hour experience was actually only 1 minute of abseiling.

I booked this first abseil at an outdoor location because I thought it would be more thrilling than on an indoor man-made wall. However, I was a bit disappointed that the abseil was not very high although I appreciate that it was probably adequate for some of the youngsters who I shared the experience with. I did wonder how the experience would last over 2 hours until I saw the time it took for other participants to overcome their fears and go over the edge. It would have been better if groups were assigned to these events based on age, as older people are generally more likely to trust all the safety equipment than youngsters who haven't had so many of life's experiences. I would have liked to have spent the time going up and down some more variety of surfaces/inclines/heights rather than just the couple of abseil's on a single descent.
