What is Tree Top Junior?

It’s a fun filled hour of canopy exploring, trail blazing and obstacles for all to enjoy. You’ll negotiate crossings and finish on a high (literally) with an awesome zip wire.

Can I go on as an adult?

If you want to join your little monkeys then just book yourself on. Bear in mind the course is designed for children so the safety cable won’t be quite where you'd like it.

Are there toilets?

Yes there will be, but they may be a little walk from the Go Ape cabin. Please allow some extra time for a toilet stop!

ReVIEWS & FEEDBACK

TREE TOP ADVENTURE, Bedgebury

28th September 2016

We thought the girl who gave us the safety brief was excellent. She made sure we all understood the importance of always being hooked on. There were 8 in our party and all managed to complete it. Some of the ropes are quite difficult to reach but it makes it more fun if it`s not too easy. A really fun activity.

The family members who went on the experience absolutely loved it. As parents we were walking round holding bags and taking photos. Sadly my husband fell and has badly injured his ankle. It was where the double zip wire ends and there are raised logs and it is very steep. My husband slipped and fell. Perhaps that could be looked at to prevent further injuries.

We very much enjoyed it, however, on item 4 there was a large jolt on the zip wire and my son did experience neck pain the next day. I feel this may need looking at. But it didn't put him off and we all had s great day, but it would make me think about booking again

Had such a great experience at Itchen Valley! Superb course extremely well maintained and definitely pushed you to your limits. The staff were the best part though both at check in and the course instructor could not do enough for you and were really friendly. They even jump started my car for me after I stupidly left the lights on, way beyond the call of duty! Thanks for a great laugh and highly recommend this course.

I arranged the go ape treetop adventure as a surprise for my freinds 30th and it was the perfect way to face and overcome fears, we were so proud of ourselves and each other for getting round. It's very tough but worth every moment of sheer terror before jumping into the Tarzan swing.

TREE TOP JUNIOR, Cannock

27th September 2016

The junior course was good for the age range as it was for a child's birthday, the only disappointment was that a young girl not from our group was in front and froze halfway across an obstacle which delayed everyone by about 10-15 minutes as no one could get to her as once your on the junior course you can't get off and no one can get around you. Not sure if there is anyway around this. Other than that it was a great experience for a group of 8 year olds. Would be good to see if there were packages available for Children's birthdays where food is provided (or woodland picnic) and also if packages are done to combine more of the activities in one price so it could be a complete day out. You may do this but i couldn't;t see it advertised while I was there. Thanks

Absolutely amazing day! Only thing that put a slight downer was the walk all the way round the park beforehand due to the work on the car park. This made us slightly late but all staff were understanding and great fun which definitely made up for it!

TREE TOP JUNIOR, Leeds Castle

We booked this for our sons birthday party and overall they all had a good time but the young guy who was giving out the safety instructions to the boys about the harness was incredibly miserable and was obviously having a bad day. He asked if the boys had any questions and when they did, he just rudely told them to be quiet and had a sense of humour loss with some boys who were understandsbly excited. The only reason I didn't say anything was because I didn't want to spoil my sons birthday, but he was the same with every child there. Miserable, rude, curt, wasn't enjoying his job and definitely shouldn't be working with children!!!

Tough but so satisfying and parts would even be described as fun. Elements were seriously tough but launching yourself off a platform into the air as you hurtle down a zip line is a lot of fun!

Booked to do the Forest Segway with my friend (both in our 50's). We were a bit concerned that we may be a bit old and odd but the staff gave us a very warm greeting. Our Segway leader was totally lovely and looked after us very, very well.
