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 lynda - Tree Top Adventure, on 29 May 2015
Fun day but the parking charges are excessive. We only visited the Go Ape site and were not able to use the other facilities as we were limited for time, we were charged £9.00 for just over four hours parking.

I liked the zip wire
Rated 5 Bananas Lynne - Tree Top Adventure, on 29 May 2015
What an unforgettable experience! In more ways than one! I actually had a panic attack half way across an extreme part of the course and ended up fainting, dangling almost upside down by my harness, halfway between the platforms. I can't praise the staff enough for their speedy, professional response and actions. They went out of their way to ensure that I, and the rest of my family (who were obviously quite concerned!) were OK. They rescued me, looked after me, fed me chocolate, made me coffee and generally nursed me till I was fully recovered. Special thanks to Adam and Dave, I am really grateful to you. We will definitely be returning soon.
Rated 5 Bananas carolyn - Tree Top Adventure, Tree Top Junior, on 29 May 2015
The younger Grandson that I took became nervous about one of the rope crossings - I spoke to a helper and a very nice young girl went up to him and then coaxed him across. The confidence boost was excellent for him - he then went around five more times on his own. The older one went on the Tree top experience and loved it. Yes we will come back. Staff excellent and helpful. Thank you all for a fun time.
Rated 5 Bananas Robert - Tree Top Junior, on 29 May 2015
My children loved it and always want to come back again as soon as we've finished. Longer and less crowded courses would be good for Juniors.
