Wild Trials

Why can’t I book on line?

Why is this more suitable as team building than the ‘Extreme Wild’ course?

  • We have specific challenges in this zone designed so that you need team work to meet their demands. You simply won’t get up the Jacobs Ladder or build the crate stack without careful coordination and problem solving skills.

What age groups are the Wild Trials aimed at?

  • We have suitable challenges for all age groups above 11. So great for Scouts and guides and schools
  • However, corporate groups or any adult team wanting some team building is our most popular booking

Can I book this for a stag or hen party?

  • Yes you can!

Can we have food or a conference room on the day?

  • Of course. Just ask what you are looking for and we can hook you up with what you need.

Wild Wood & Craggy Island

 

One company, two great adventures. Wild Wood is owned and managed by Craggy Island, the company started in 2004 to provide the best in indoor climbing and based in Guildford, with another branch near Sutton in Surrey.

 

We incorporated our background in rock climbing and adventure businesses to
design Wild Wood to be fun and exhilarating for all ages. Drawing on our knowledge of working at height and handling groups of children and adults of all abilities, we took a huge amount of time and effort to design what we think is the  best high level attraction of its type anywhere in the UK.

 

Find out more about indoor climbing and parties at Craggy Island here.
