[Advertising Feature] Almondsbury-based outdoor adventure centre offers challenges for participants all ages.
A purpose built high ropes course is coming to Mojo Active’s Almondsbury location, great news for anyone seeking a new and exhilarating way to experience the great outdoors.
The challenge course will complement the low ropes elements already used by the activity centre, and will be open to the public from mid-September, from 10am to 5pm weekends and school holidays. Families and individuals can book 1.5 hour sessions online at www.mojoactive.co.uk
“Our high ropes course is packed with exciting challenges for people of all ages. As well as providing an active day out for individuals and families, it will also cater for schools, corporate team building, stag and hen parties, and children’s parties,” says Mark Johnson, who co-founded Mojo Active in 2012 alongside business partner Jo McConnell.
The structure combines 15 vertical and horizontal challenges and is accessed by an initial climb up a Burma Bridge. From there, you will cross the rickety bridge, climb to the islands in the sky, swing over the organ pipes and enjoy the long ride down the final zip wire, all under the careful supervision of fully trained instructors.
Latest safety equipment
Participants wear a climbing harness and are protected by a safety wire at all times. The course uses the very latest ‘CLiC-iT’ belay system, with at least one of the karabiners connected at all times to ensure optimum safety. Children aged 7+ should have no problems clipping on securely and enjoying the full experience. This allows groups and individuals to learn about risk taking, test their own perceived limits and understand how to work collaboratively – all while the adrenalin is kicking in and they are having fun.
“North Bristol has been calling out for a high ropes facility, and we have recently invested to meet this demand, while enhancing our range of activities that support our philosophy of outdoor adventure, fitness, safety and fun,” says Jo, “If it’s been a while since you’ve climbed a tree, then it’s time to come and see us!”
Mojo Active was founded on the simple desire to provide a great outdoor experience regardless of age or ability, and that formula is proving successful. People are encouraged to participate in an activity, however Mojo teams are trained to adjust levels of involvement according to their comfort level. For example, each high ropes element includes an exit point back to ground level if needed!
Challenges for all ages
Facilities are set in 100 acres of private land overlooking the Severn Bridge, and offer the scope for an adrenalin-fuelled range of activities. These include a 400m military-style assault course, low ropes, tunnel maze, climbing wall, zip wire, archery range, den building and survival skills – a giant outdoor playground that caters just as well for a seven-year-old at a children’s party as for a corporate event for several hundred professionals.
Mojo also runs special ‘away days’ as part of their schools and holiday club programmes, including surf trips, mountain biking and mountaineering, beach days and raft building.
On the doorstep
The centre is located five minutes away from the M4/M5 interchange (J16 M5) or two minutes from J17 on the M5 at Over Court Farm, Over Lane, Almondsbury, Bristol BS32 4DF.
High ropes visitors can park at the Mojo Active entrance, where there is a reception and toilets.
