Winner At Netmums Outdoor Play Awards
Today at Banana HQ we received some fantastic news.
This is a fantastic win for us, as the winners are decided by mums, dads and carers who participate on the open forum - Netmums. In fact there are a staggering 1.7million mums, dads and child carers who are registered Netmums members and were eligible to cast their votes in the awards, to find the UK's best loved outdoor attractions. Which makes this award even more special!
We caught up with our lovely site manager at Rivington, Sam Mason to get his take on the news:
"We are delighted to receive this award it's wonderful to be recognised for what we do. There's nothing like seeing families having fun up in the trees and now we hope to welcome even more budding apes after being recognised by Netmums as one of the regions best outdoor attractions."
The fact that so many mums and dads love Go Ape is great news for children all over the country, and hopefully more will be able to follow in their fellow Tarzans footsteps and head up into the trees. With recent studies finding that modern kids spend only ten per cent of their time playing outdoors, four times less than their parents' generation! We all think it's time that children spent more time outdoors wherever that maybe.
Currently at Rivington we have the UK's number one Tree Top Adventure. Which is suitable for those over the age of 10 years old and above 1.4m tall. However, for all those mini Tarzan's out there, we have been working hard to build more Tree Top Junior's. These courses are specifically designed from 6-12 year olds and over 1m tall. Although we do let kids on who are under 6, just as long as they reach the 1m mark. They are scattered all over the country so why not check it out to see if there is one near you!
Everyone at Go Ape and especially Go Ape Rivington would like to thank all you lovely mums, dads and child carers who voted for us in this fantastic award.
