On our recent visit to Butlins Minehead Resort, climbing seemed to be a recurrent theme.
My eldest daughter went on the zip wire and climbed the climbing wall with her dad. She had been very excited about climbing the climbing wall since she had seen it in the brochure. This was a real challenge but the instructors were excellent and with a bit of help from dad she made it to the top. The climbing wall, rope course and zip wire incur an additional charge but worth it for adventurous kids.
Not to be outdone by her sister my 3 year old climbed the tree climb. She had been asking to have a go throughout the whole break and we finally relented. The children have 3 attempts at reaching the top and ringing the bell and the fastest time of the day wins a cuddly parrot. My eldest reached the top all 3 times. We were howevever, disappointed that it didn’t appear that her time was being recorded anywhere. I didn’t think my 3 year old would get very far but I think you’ll agree that she did brilliantly.
In fact I think if she hadn’t have looked down she would have made it to the top.
Butlin’s climbing wall is suitable for children and adults aged 8+, the tree climb located in the Skyline Pavilion is suitable for any age.
