Youngsters invited to leap into February half term fun

Lancaster City Council has pulled together a programme of fun packed activities to get youngsters up, out and active this February half term.

Children are invited to come along to Salt Ayre Leisure Centre during the half term break and be one of the first to take a leap from Europe’s first ever 21m flight tower. 

Opening to the public on Saturday February 11, Gravity offers the perfect opportunity for thrill seekers from 7 years upwards to test their nerve and descend the multi-level tower using free fall, zip line and bunjee.  Whichever way you do it is up to you - but are you brave enough to leap from the 19m apex?

This epic adventure will be open throughout February half term from 10am until 6pm.  A 90 minute session costs £12.50 children (7+) and £15 adults (18+).  Weight restrictions apply. 
For those who prefer to keep their feet firmly on the ground, don’t forget the other brand new activities inside Salt Ayre Leisure Centre.   New attractions include XHeight - the choice of 18 exhilarating climbing panels (for 5 years +) and Energy – the 26ft multi-level indoor soft play adventure for explorers up to the age of 12.

For those who want to brush up on their swimming techniques there are plenty of lessons on offer at Carnforth and Heysham Community Pools (5-16 years) as well as junior lifeguard, diving and synchro sessions.  Back by popular demand again this year is the crazy inflatable fun session at Salt Ayre Pool for all ages and fun for all the family. 

Information on all the activities and how to book is available in the February Half Term Activities Guide.  You can pick up a copy from town halls and visitor information centres at Lancaster and Morecambe or view it online at
