  • Create your outdoor adventure

    Imagine yourself above the treetops, standing tall, the wind softly brushing your hair. Your senses are heightened. You’re an explorer extraordinaire! The conqueror of the world! With cat like reactions and the balance of an acrobat, you and your team courageously climbed to the highest peak, outwitted swinging rope bridges, charged across cargo nets, and balanced along bubbling beams, all whilst having mountains of entertaining fun along the way. Well, you’ve imagined yourself right in the heart of the adventure at Air Trail Tees Barrage. It’s like nothing you’ve ever experienced before!   20160211_RC87334-medium Standing proudly at 18 metres high, Air Trail Tees Barrage is the biggest high ropes adventure course in the UK and your kids are going to love it! Let their imaginations run wild as they explore 4 towering levels and 60 unique obstacles all towering high above the River Tees, it also includes TWO zip wires and a breathtaking walk the plank challenge! Unlike traditional ropes courses, you can pick your own route and create your own adventure, it’s time to GO EXPLORE! Air Trail Tees Barrage welcomes explorers of all ages and abilities and you don’t need any climbing experience. You are simply fitted with a harness, clipped on to the unique railing system and then you’re good to go. With 4 levels to choose from you can find your feet on the lower levels first, before progressing on wards and upwards.

    Air Trail Tees Barrage has something for everyone.

    Explorers can experience Air Tykes, the mini adventure ropes course, from the age of two. Explorers 1m tall can go on Air Trail, although if you’re under 1.2m (4ft) you do need to be accompanied by an adult. Remember, if you book your Air Trail adventure online, you can save yourself 20%. Treat you and your family to a memorable day out that will have you coming back time and time again.

    Air Trail is open all year round but the opening hours vary week by week depending what time of year it is, so the best way to find out is by clicking on the calendar and selecting the date you want to visit. As a general rule of thumb Air Trail is open to the public every Saturday and school holidays but we advise you check and book in advance so you’re not disappointed.

    We advise all customers to book online before your visit to avoid disappointment. All bookings must be made through the Air Trail online booking system here.

    Air Trail

    We ask everyone to arrive 30 minutes before they are due to go on Air Trail and then your adventure starts with a short briefing from one of the Air Trail Crew. You’ll then be fitted with your harness and you’ll be ready to enjoy 1 hour of fun.

    Air Tykes

    Children will enjoy 20 minutes on the mini explorer Air Tykes course once they have had their harness fitted.

    We suggest wearing clothes that you are comfortable in and suitable for the weather conditions. We ask that you wear suitable shoes, which means, no open toed or heeled shoes or flips flops and that shoe laces are tied tight.

    If you have booked online, you will receive a confirmation email with a reminder of the date and time of your booking as well as a reference number.  We request that you arrive 30 minutes before you are due to go Air Trail, as we need to go through a few guidelines with you and get you harnessed up and ready to explore. Unfortunately if you’re late, you’re late. Your time starts from the time of your booking so it is in your best interest to arrive early.

    No, everything is provided and you’ll be fitted with a harness which will clip you onto the structure. Air Trail is an outdoor activity so you need to dress appropriately. You can also buy Air Trail merchandise on site subject to availability.

    To make sure you and fellow explorers are safe whilst using Air Trail, please avoid wearing excessively baggy/loose fitting clothing and open toed footwear. Please ensure all shoes are fastened securely.

    Air Trail will only be closed in extreme weather conditions, such as high winds or thunderstorms. Rain doesn’t affect your adventure on Air Trail, and we advise dressing for suitable weather conditions. As they say, a little rain never hurt anyone!

    Unfortunately you will not receive a refund for the session.

    We have secure lockers available on site for small belongings as you’re not permitted to take any loose items on Air Trail e.g. phones, money, keys etc. Lockers take a 50p coin.

    We strive to allow everyone to experience the thrill of our high ropes course, however due to the nature of the activity a certain level of fitness and understanding of the safety information is required. If you would like to speak to a member of the Adventure Crew regarding specific needs, please call us on 01642 265454. For more details about disabled use on Air Trail, please read the Terms and Conditions.

    You think you have been on one high ropes course, you have done them all? Far from the truth my friend. Air Trail is the tallest of its kind in the UK, it has two zip rails (the first of its kind outside of the US). Each element is completely different with varying degrees of difficulty. No helmets are needed which gives you that extra sense of freedom. Plus with various routes up the structure you don’t need to follow a set path and get caught up with other explorers.

    You certainly haven’t tried a high ropes course until you have tried Air Trail!

    You can’t escape the fact that Air Trail is tall. However, who said you have to go to the highest point? There are 4 levels, 2 zip rails and over 38 unique challenges to explore which you can tackle in your own time that won’t impede any other explorers. If you wish, you don’t have to go past level 1. You know your own level. Remember you are perfectly safe, secured to the structure at all times with 2 qualified operators watching over to give you a helping hand if you need.

    Yes, there are male, female and accessible toilets onsite for customers, as well as toilets at Tees Barrage International White Water Centre. We advise that you make use of the toilets before you go on Air Trail as you’ll be on the structure for up to an hour and once you come down you are not permitted back on.

    There are a selection of hot & cold drinks as well as confectionery available at Air Trail but if you want something more substantial you can visit The Barrage Café in the main Tees Barrage centre building. You can also bring your own picnics and use the tables around the site to relax and refuel.

    Dogs are allowed on the Tees Barrage site but unfortunately not inside the Air Trail compound – this does not apply to Guide dogs.
