Brilliant day out. Our guide Louise was incredibly helpful and guided us through everything. The day started with a safety session and then we were allowed to go on to the different courses. The zip lines were my favourite along with the Tarzan jumps. Would highly recommend this place to anyone, definitely plan to return.

I booked online and unfortunately we got lost along the way(my sat navs fault) a lovely girl called me too ask where I was but unfortunately we cut off. When I could eventually call back a lovely man answered and gave me directions and said just get here when you can. I then later receive a voicemail to call for directions off the girl I first spoke too. I thought it was so nice as I'm sure they could have just said no too us being late. Also Craig who did our safety talks ect was amazing!! He definitely made the day that little more enjoyable. Thank you too all at dalby forest.

TREE TOP ADVENTURE, TREE TOP JUNIOR, Alice Holt

Our boys had a great time at Alice Holt on Tree Top Junior and we enjoyed watching them. I enjoyed my Tree Top Adventure but I did find that the safety wires were positioned too low on some crossings, although at 1.8m I'm not particularly tall for a man. With lines often positioned fairly centrally you can't always take a central path when moving from step to step which meant on these crossings you had to hold the wire for support and balance, which eliminates the potential to practice stepping across and balancing without aids as if 'freestyle'. Short adults or children should not have the same limitation however.
