Where are we going today?

If you have ever pictured yourself as Tarzan, then you might want to head to Thomas Falls Challenge Course because it's pretty close to what Tarzan would have experienced!

The Thomas Falls Challenge Course is located near Diana in Texas, and gives kids and parents alike the chance to really challenge yourselves with this treetop obstacle course!

Your adventure begins when you have to tackle the log climb up to the skywalk swinging bridge (yes, it swings!) before you embark on your very first zip line...first of many!

This zip line takes you through the old growth forest canopy, onto an even taller platform! This takes you ACROSS the lake, and then a very cool wagon ride! (You didn't expect that, did you!?)

This wagon will take you to the platform where you can overlook the cliff...90' above the lake! Eeek!

Don't worry - you will be too busy zipping past the covered bridge and island to ANOTHER tree top platform to worry about the height!

Thomas Falls Challenge Course is great for kids because it builds their confidence, their strength, and gives them something special when they finally complete the course...and it was all them.

Everyone is trained by staff before you start, so you know all the safety measures.

A fantastic way to get out into nature AND achieve something you didn't think possible! 

Let's get ACTIVE!

    Arguably the best music venue in London and a well kept secret just 10 min walk from Kings Cross St Pancras. The sound quality and acoustic is just increadible. I spoke with a couple of the musicians who were playing on the night and they said they never played in a venue like this. The hall is medium side which means that probably wherever you seat you will have a good view and there is a nice balcony. There's also a restaurant on the ground level. I haven't gone in but seems like a good idea for my next visit. Very friendly ushers on the door...Read More

    The venue is really not done justice by the photos online as the waterfront bar/cafe is absolutely stunning. The bartender knew to put an orange slice in our Blue Moon lagers and was extremely pleasant. The band was of a very good quality and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.

    Would recommend!

    Excellent place for concert and other art projects. Everything is well organised with out waiting so I suggest to be on time. Acoustic is also very good and there is also a nice. Service is very friendly and prices are quite cheap especially for that part of London.

    King's Place concert hall was initially billed as a 'Wigmore Hall alternative'. Well, thanks to the acoustics, there is no danger of that happening.

    They have got the sound so wrong. It initially feels dry, and then instead of the reverb warming the sound, it muddies it a bit too late. The worst of both worlds. It's amazing that with this apparent technological age, we create something that is acoustically light years behind the Wigmore, built 100 years ago.

    The music venue at King's Place is a favourite of mine, particularly for chamber music. It has excellent acoustics and is laid out well. On top of this, they always program very interesting, varied content and showcase extended festivals, like the year-long Bach Unwrapped taking place during 2013.

    Easy to access (it's a stone's throw from King's Cross Station), it also features an Art gallery and some places to eat, including the quite tasty (but quite expensive) Rotunda. All in all, a great cultural destination and worth checking out the program...Read More

Bar downstairs could do with more staff as I had to wait for some time for my drink.

For a start, the roof above the stage ought to be lower to project the sound out to the audience. There's a lot more to it than that though.

For me, the atmosphere is cold, modern and a bit soulless. And it's not nice that the concert hall is stuck in the basement. There are some pretty clueless designers, architects and sound engineers around it would seem.

On the plus side, at least there is the cultural incentive to conceive and realise a project like this in the first place.
