A new high ropes adventure course has opened in Folkestone.
SkyWalk, which has been four years in the making, is now open at Folkestone Sports Centre, in Radnor Park Avenue.
It is a two level high ropes obstacle course and can be used by anyone over 1.2m tall.
Manager Tessa Stickler said: "At last we have completed the installation of the unique high ropes course.
"It could not have come at a better time - children and families are desperate to get outside and get active after being cooped up indoors for the best part of the last 12 months.
"Keeping within Covid restrictions, the course is ready for small groups of six people to come and challenge themselves, have fun and lots of fresh air.
"It's high, it's challenging - but great fun."
Sky Walk officially opened on April 3, but pupils at Sandgate Primary, who won a drawing competition, were the first to use the new equipment at the end of March.
Staff say the course has been fully booked for the past two weeks.
Each session lasts 60 minutes, with a 15-minute briefing and a 45-minute climb, and costs £10 per person.
As numbers are limited, sessions have to be pre-booked.

The centre is now planning a full refurbishment of the Ski Centre, including the introduction of a built in misting system on the slope, new reception and social area.
It is scheduled to by completed by June.
