Feedback from Bracknell, Swinley Forest

Take a look at what some of our tribe have said about their time in the forest. It’s always good to hear it straight from the Gorilla’s mouth (…and we’re proud to say it’s totally unedited!) And why not have a peek at what people are saying about us on Trip Advisor.

Rated 5 Bananas Brenda - Tree Top Adventure, on 23 October 2014
The kids were a bit nervous about the Tarzan swing initially, but really enjoyed it after the first go.
Rated 5 Bananas Phil - Forest Segway, on 23 October 2014
Loved the Swinley Forest venue, just a step away from suburban Bracknell. The only disappointing thing is that as you are segwaying in single file (for good safety reasons!) you can't really talk to each other.
Rated 5 Bananas Anthony - Tree Top Adventure, on 23 October 2014
It was worth the concentration on the tricky bits just to do the zip and tarzan wires.
Rated 5 Bananas DAVID - Tree Top Adventure, on 22 October 2014
My second GoApe visit to Bracknell, the previous one almost 15 years ago, and having always wanted to do it again, it was my birthday treat to close work friends (4 of them), 2 of whom had been through the Wendover course recently. All of us enjoyed the day very much, with varying degrees of confidence, but all benefitted in terms of confidence at height.We like the concept of an in depth safety/equipment briefing, and then being allowed to get on with the course alone.One small girl ahead of us was very frightened at one point...a GoApe supervisor appeared to help, as did the girls family, of course, and she continued the route...but would it be an idea on especially difficult sections to provide some sort of escape route for such occurences...I would concede that this could be seen as an easy option, and thus defeat the final satisfaction of route completion...just a thought though, I am sure you have heard it before.!!I will definitely be back sometime, probably at a different venue for a change.Thank you GoApe !!

Great time on the Segway with my two teenage boys who were throughly impressed.... so there's testament to some good fun; because there is nothing like a teenager to tell you whether you are doing it right! They can't wait to come back.
