Rated 5 Bananas Amanda - Tree Top Adventure, on 1 September 2014
it pushed me to the limits having never done anything like this before but was a totally worthwhile experiance and a huge sense of achievement on finishing
Rated 5 Bananas Louisa - Tree Top Adventure, Tree Top Junior, on 31 August 2014
Great instructor ... v patient and a reassuring and friendly face to see on the way round.
Rated 5 Bananas Catherine - Tree Top Adventure, on 30 August 2014
Brilliant day and an outside activity that was enjoyed by all the family. I was worried it would be too physical for me (40 plus and unfit!) but I thoroughly loved it. The instructors were very clear in their instructions and made sure you were okay with all safety aspects before you set off. We had one child raring to go and one child who is scared of heights and was worried but he soon overcame his fears and had a good time with a bit of coaxing from Mum and Dad. Good family fun which involved all of us at the same time. Rain did not spoil the day but would recommend taking a change of clothes and a large bin bag for wet stuff!
Rated 5 Bananas Lorna - Tree Top Adventure, on 30 August 2014
The Tarzan swing on site 4 still freaks me out..... but I love it! I will be back:-)
Rated 5 Bananas veronica - Tree Top Adventure, on 29 August 2014
I was a spectator. Taking part were my daughter, granddaughter and her friend. The whole experience was incredible. My granddaughter had always wanted to 'Go Ape' but was always a bit dubious about heights. The safety training was excellent and taught the children team work, concentration. They had a lot of fun and excitement and would recommend this to anyone with a sense of adventure. The weather during the first part of the experience was very wet but did not stop any enjoyment - best part apparently were the zip wires.
