SLIDESHOW: Action at adventure fun weekend Cliffhanger, Sheffield

Waiting for Video...
 

A Sheffield park played host to all sorts of outdoor events and sports as thousands of people turned out to try new activities at the weekend.

Cliffhanger meant Millhouses Park was packed with everything from climbing walls and kayaking to water zorbing and table tennis.

Youngsters were able to try their hand at smoothie-making, while a range of bicycle sports including bike polo was on offer.

Star readers also turned their hand to making movies on Saturday – we asked you to shoot video clips for a unique report on what was also the longest day of the year.

The finished film, with soundtrack Summer Somewhere by local band Screaming Maldini, was shown on a big screen at the event on Sunday.

Cliffhanger co-organiser Matt Heason said: “The event went really well, and the weather has been kind to us.

“Even though we didn’t have the Bouldering Championships this year, the event feels like a big-scale event, with a nice atmosphere and lots of families enjoying the various activities.

“It’s been a brilliant weekend.

“The Big Drop has probably been the most popular – it’s an eight metre high platform with a five metre jump into a giant airbag. There have been long queues for that all weekend.

“The bike polo has also been fantastic. It’s really a spectacle to watch.”
