Perfect if you are not afraid of heights or for a rainy day
For a sky high family day of fun, why not try some indoor climbing? My own little monkey is certainly a climber and loves nothing better than to scale to great heights in a way that makes me really nervous. At least at an indoor climbing centre he would be strapped in!
It will give everyone a physical and mental challenge with a whole heap of adrenaline thrown in.
