RockReef on Bournemouth Pier develops new Drop ‘N’ Go Sessions

RockReef Indoor Climbing activity attraction on Bournemouth Pier is launching a new ‘Drop ‘n’ Go’ session whereby parents can drop their children off and leave them for up to 2 hours. The first session launches on Saturday 21st October and subsequent sessions will be every Saturday thereafter.

Marketing Manager Sarah Hunter advised, “The new sessions will allow parents to drop off their children with the team of fully trained & DBS checked instructors. To make it extra easy for parents, our meeting point is outside Hot Rocks at Pier Approach from between 9:30 – 9:50am with collection from 11:45am – 12:15pm at the same location so no parking is needed.”

Sarah continued, “The session is available to children age 4 upwards. Booking in advance is essential. A session will cost £15 and includes up to 1 ½ hours climbing and unlimited squash.  We’re anticipating that in the run up to Christmas this will provide the perfect shopping opportunities for parents and will prove extremely popular!”

With 25 unique Clip ‘n’ Climb walls and the ‘Stairway to Heaven’ climbing challenge, RockReef indoor activity attraction provides endless amounts of fun for participants, whilst pushing and testing their agility, confidence, climbing and problem- solving skills.  Each wall creates a different challenge – whether it be testing speed, deciding on the quickest or hardest route to navigate or where to distribute one’s body weight.

​“Competition winners Jack and Tamara zip surf with the Red Devils Freefall Display Team”

Two local school children have won the opportunity to tandem zip wire with the Red Devils Freefall Display Team at the Bournemouth Air Festival!  The competition, run by RockReef appealed for the public to nominate youngsters for the unique experience.

Marketing Manager, Sarah Hunter on Bournemouth Pier said, “We were inundated with nominations for many children from across Dorset.  It was quite a task selecting our two winners but the ones we selected did stand out as very deserving winners.”

9 year old Jack Kent was nominated by his brother, Shane.  Shane wrote…’Jack was moved by the story of four year-old Jacob; a young boy with a severe case of Cerebral Palsy, in need of an emergency operation to prevent him from being wheelchair bound. Due to the fact that Jack is so compassionate, he decided to raise at least £500 towards the ‘Dorset Children’s Foundation’, a charity that is currently helping Jacob, and which is run by one of Jack’s great footballing legends Harry Redknapp. On Saturday 17th June, in boiling hot conditions, Jack dribbled his beloved football from Sandbanks to Bournemouth Pier and back (8 miles), in order to help poor Jacob get the care he needs to walk again. Amazingly, Jack has raised over £600!’

The competition’s second winner was 11 year old Tamara Andrews.  Tamara was nominated 3 times; by her father Martin, her uncle Christopher Andrews and family friend Janet Finn. Martin wrote, ‘I would love my daughter to win this.  She has had a difficult couple of years since losing her mum but keeps going and is becoming a wonderful young lady, gaining top honours from school and being so helpful and kind.’

Janet contributed, ‘Since losing her mother to breast cancer, she and her Dad Martin, have become the perfect partnership. With the love and support of the rest of her family and friends this beautiful, bright girl is full of confidence who is willing to take on any challenge.’

The Red Devils Freefall Display Team came out in force with 10 of them taking on the challenge of the zip wire.   Corporal Alex Perry advised, “It’s great to back in Bournemouth and sharing the zip wire with 2 fabulous, deserving winners.  It was good to hear their stories and hopefully they’ll come sky diving with us when they’re older.”

Jack enthused, “I loved it.  I want to do it again!”

Tamara said, “I was really excited to hear that I’d won this prize. Dad hadn’t told me that he’d nominated me so it was a bit of a shock.  The zip wire was really, really good and it was brilliant meeting the Red Devils!”
