Todds Leap, Ballygawley REVIEW

You are here Home  > Entertainment >  Todds Leap, Ballygawley

Todds Leap an activities centre, which features a purpose built off road course and an electrifying mix of fun filled unique adventure and team building activities. The most electrifying choice of outdoor activities Northern Ireland can offer – a fantastic mix of fun-filled adventure for team building days.

The main buildings at Todds Leap are on the level and accessible by anyone in a wheelchair or who have restrictive mobility problems. There is a large door to enter the building and inside there is a large corridors and open spaces to manoeuvre a wheelchair around with ease. There is also an elevator to provide access to the next floor of the building and a large disabled toilet, which can accommodate the largest of wheelchairs.

The grounds around it are concreted and smooth to ride a wheelchair on. However, as you move down towards the outdoors activities, the ground are a rougher and due care in need when operating a wheelchair.

There are many activities outside which would be completely inaccessible to some people because of the disabilities they may have, but all activities are organised in advance to attendance. Forward planning with the group you are attending with and the advice of the professional at Todds Leap, there are still plenty of activities that you can take part in. I took part in such activities as clay pigeon shoots, blind 4×4 off-road driving and archery.

Some were difficult, but the staffs were on hand to help me participate also to the full of my abilities. There were other activities such as the zip line that I would have love to take part in, but physically were beyond me, but that wouldn’t exclude others.

There are also overnight log cabins for people to stay in. These are a little distance away from the main activity centre and can only people accessed by vehicles. Manual wheelchairs can be loaded into and passengers transported up, but it could be a little more difficult for people in electric chairs.

Up there, the cabins are accessible by wheelchairs, with ramps up to there and a size living areas. The bathrooms and a bedrooms are a little small, but not impossible to access.

In 2013 Todds Leap collected Disability Best Practice Employer Award (Joint winner with Belfast City Council) at the Irish News Workplace and Employment Awards.

Over the past eight years, the company has employed 12 staff with disabilities and every adrenalin activity is assessed to ensure disabled people can be included.

Overall Rating:
I found the activities at Todds Leap interesting and enjoyable to take part in, the food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The only disappointing part was in relation to the accommodation in the wooden cabins for wheelchairs. The doorways were too narrow into the bathroom and kitchen, the ground outside the cabins was not a level surface and the bunk beds were very hard to get in and out of from my wheelchair.
