Join us at Sky High Adventure and explore Manchester’s premier indoor caving experience! With us you can enjoy the thrills of caving without the chills of Manchester’s infamous weather, all year round!

As exciting as it is challenging, caving is a great adventure that will require you to slide, crawl, turn, and twist your way through our 54 metre indoor caving system. You’ll navigate the darkness of the tunnels, with just a helmet and head torch, so you can enjoy the ultimate indoor caving experience. And with a few surprising additions hidden away inside the cave, this experience really is fun for everyone!

The journey usually takes around 45 minutes to complete, as your instructor incorporates activities into the journey. There is the opportunity to share your adventure with spectators too! There are cameras in the caving system connected to an external screen, so those who don’t venture into the cave with you can still share your adventure!


Ready for a different challenge? Join us on our exciting, 4D, colourful bouldering wall at Sky High Adventure! Our multi-dimensional bouldering course is a great way for climbers of all abilities to try out the ultimate indoor climbing experience.

Testing your strength, navigation and agility, go back to basics as you take on the bouldering course free from harnesses. Taking command of the bouldering course is a great way to challenge yourself, have fun, and get fit in a safe and friendly environment.

The bouldering experience will not just challenge you on your first, or even second attempt: the bouldering courses at Sky High Adventure are updated and adapted to ensure the challenge is always fresh, new and exciting. You must consider each move you make as you traverse the distinct areas of the course, meaning each course is as complex as it is creative.
