Rated 5 Bananas liz - Tree Top Adventure, on 6 May 2015
It was a great day but unfortunately the boys were not quite strong enough and struggled with the equipment but the staff were great and said that we could try again when they were a bit bigger and stronger and that we would get a full refund. I am very appreciative of the staff at Wendover Go ape for all of their help as it was my son's 10th birthday and he was disappointed that he could not do all of the course. I would highly recommend this place to all my friends in the future and would be grateful if you would pass on my comments to the staff there.
Rated 3 Bananas Israr - Tree Top Adventure, on 6 May 2015
It was amazing apart from the fact we couldn't complete the whole thing due to the weather which we wasn't told about online. Further more while we was up on the extreme rock climbing and was told to climb down while a thunderstorm was happening. My friend found it extremely hard so she asked if she could let go and fall softly down. This wasn't the case and she had to climb down or else she was told she would come falling down quickly. Not the kind of thing you want to hear. But the guys were great and I would come back hopefully. Had a great time
