Belfast, Northern Ireland-area alpine-themed adventure centre We Are Vertigo has added a spa aimed at parents to its mix of active activities. Parents can check children five years and older into the Adventure Centre and then check themselves into the spa to enjoy a massage, facial or pedicure.

The Adventure Centre includes high ropes, a 30-ft ice climbing tower, a climbing wall and a three-tier Swiss Alpine-themed soft play area. Once children are checked into the centre, they are supervised by a dedicated staff member for the duration of the spa session. We Are Vertigo also also includes a trampoline park, zipline and endless ski slope.

The brainchild of husband and wife team Gareth and Lorna Murphy, the venue opened two years ago with a mission to bridge the gap for parents and simplify their lives. It has more than £2m (US$3m, €2.8m) invested in its facilities to date.

“We have created a destination which has something for all ages, and while the kids play and burn off some energy, mums and dads can indulge in the sanctuary of the spa for a bit of ‘me time,’” said Lorna Murphy.

The spa features five treatment rooms, including one couples room, and offers facials, nail treatments, waxing, tans, full body and deep tissue massages. It uses Aromatherapy Associates and Essie product houses.

“The addition of the spa will create a unique experience for the parents, where they can check the kids in and drop them off, then come into us, where they can relax for the duration of their chosen treatment and get totally spoiled,” said Murphy.

She said the spa has received “amazing feedback” so far.

“Parents are excited about it – I’m excited about it,” she said. “I do believe that we’re all time-short these days, and it’s something that caters for the needs of the entire family, providing the ultimate in multi-tasking and relaxation.”
