TREE TOP ADVENTURE, Bedgebury

6th December 2016

My 2 children (13 and 10) and I had a really wonderful day. They were so brave,and I only screamed once!! Unfortunately my friend decided after getting half way up the first ladder that it really wasn't for her,and her son agreed after the first zip wire that he was indeed afraid of heights, even with very gentle encouragement from the lovely goape team, but I was refunded their tickets, so hey ho it's not for everyone. We will be back when it's a bit warmer, it was a bit frosty up in the tree tops. Nb, bedgebury forest was absolutely beautiful.

Everyone is friendly and helpful. The experience was really lovely. My 13 year and old and I had a really good time. Probably good advice to stretch first, before going climbing!

Cannot fault it. That's twice my 8yr old has enjoyed tree top junior at Leeds castle and loved it both times. Special mention to the chief gorilla - young girl, off to New Zealand v soon. A lovely girl and i wish her every success. Great with the kids and the (rather cold) Dad.

TREE TOP ADVENTURE, Wyre

I booked Go Ape as a birthday treat for my 13year daughter. She had a fantastic experience, as did her friend and older sister! The staff were friendly and professional and ensured that they were all confident and happy with safety procedures before letting them loose in the tree tops! It was fun, challenging, a little scary at times and great fun was had by all. Good value for money and a fun outdoor adventure in a beautiful environment.
