Air Trail Tees Barrage


Set over four levels, over 38 unique challenges stand before you ready to conquer. There’s something for everyone with an exciting assortment of wobbly rope bridges, troublesome tight ropes, crazy cargo nets and swinging stepping stones, all floating high above the River Tees. Ease one foot in front of the other as you take on the mighty walk the plank challenge and whizz along two full length zip wires. 

No equipment or experience is required, all you need is a spirit for outdoor adventure and a thirst for fun, and it’s not just for kids! Mighty mums and daring dads can unleash their inner Tarzan and join in the action. Even mini explorers can have an adventure of their own and let their imagination run wild on our exciting Sky Tykes course, a mini ropes course directly underneath Air Trail.

As well as family adventure, Air Trail can be booked for private hire, birthday parties, corporate packages or school days out.

Visit the Air Trail website for more information and booking information.
