The climbing sessions run somewhat differently now at all of the Treetops Adventures parks, regarding children who can climb alone and those who need an adult to climb with them as a course supervisor.

What to wear

Secure, enclosed shoes (such as sneakers) are required. Treetops recommends wearing appropriate clothing, suitable for both the harness and physical activity. They do not recommend crop-tops, shorts and skirts that can ride up when worn with the harness. Long hair must be tied back. Gloves are provided but you’re welcome to bring your own gloves or purchase your own pair at check-in.

Treetops Adventure St Ives

KidZip sessions are available if you would prefer any kids aged 8-12 to climb without a supervising adult from your own party. In the KidZip sessions, a group of 20 or so climbers are taken through the various courses with a Treetops Adventure staff member. 

Treetops Adventure St Ives

While the KidZip option is an excellent one if you prefer not to climb yourself, be aware that the group is large (20+ climbers) and moves extremely slowly with only one staff member supervising. In our sessions, the kids only completed three ropes courses in the two hour period and spent a lot of the time waiting for the rest of the group to catch up. I would certainly advise the better option to get better value and more exercise would be to climb as a group with your own supervising adult.

Treetops Adventure St Ives

There are drinks, ice blocks and snacks available at the check in / booking desk, however there is no cafe at the facility or nearby. There are plenty of picnic tables to bring your own food however. 

St Ives Showground Playground

Before or after the climb, check out the excellent St Ives Showground Playground.

There is plenty of parking available  – drive all the way to the Treetops Adventure through the St Ives Showground.
