Clip ’N Climb

Are you a keen climber looking for things to do in Bournemouth? If so, we offer 28 Clip ’N Climb walls that vary in difficulty, which suits ages 4-94 and all abilities. Why not challenge your friends to the ‘Speed Climb’, which features two identical climbing walls, a clock and your skills to see who can make our fastest climber of the day leaderboard? Or take on the ‘Triffid’, which has a reputation for being the most challenging wall at RockReef due to it having just finger grips.

At RockReef, no climbing experience is necessary, as we’ll provide you with all of the training you need during a 30-minute induction. With this in mind, you really won’t find a more diverse range of fun things to do in Bournemouth.

If you’ve got little explorers in tow, or fancy giving this exciting activity a go for yourself, we’ve got the perfect things to do in Bournemouth this weekend. PierCave consists of three separate caving tunnels, which all vary in difficulty. With twists, turns, dips, bumps and rocks, cave your way to the ball pit where family and friends can watch in the comfort of our lovely RockReef Cafe.



For thrills and spills you won’t find elsewhere, our HighLine is not for the faint-hearted! This swinging obstacle course includes a mix of challenges, such as the Swing Logs, Free Beamer, Cross Logs, Hi-Low Steps, Cargo Net, Tunnel and Slope Walk. You’ll be able to set the level of difficulty before taking on the HighLine before you take on this challenge, making this a must do for all.


Vertical Slide

Our vertical drop slide is sure to get your heart racing. You’ll wear a full body suit and helmet for extra protection and slide ability, before grabbing hold of the handlebars which are winched down. The challenge is to see how long you can hold on for as it rises 25ft up, before letting go!
