ReVIEWS & FEEDBACK

CHRISTIANE

TREE TOP ADVENTURE, Bedgebury

30th July 2016

I thought the whole experience was awesome and particularly enjoyed the scariest bits, such as the crossing where there was just a rope, I am not sure what the name of the crossing was but it was like stepping straight onto the top of the trees, I also liked the big Tarzan Swing and of course the Zip wire at the end of each section. It was lovely for the three of us, my husband, my 11 year-old daughter and myself, to be in the tree tops for three hours... I was especially pleased to still be able to do something like this at 62 ! I would like to add one or two things which might help future participants: I was wearing trousers with buttons on the side and the buttons kept catching the nets on the net crossings. I was also afraid that the buttons might damage the nets. On the big Tarzan swing, it might be a good idea to advise people who wear glasses to tie them up with a spectacle strap as I almost thought that my glasses were going to come off because of the impact of the swing. These are two things you could perhaps add to the advice on what to wear. The other thing I would like to mention is that, if you have a young child with you and if there are two adults, make sure that the child goes second between the first and the second adult, so that there is always an adult to receive the child and an adult to see the child off. Do not change the order. Finally, if you welcome suggestions, this is something which I saw in a park and thought that, if it worked, it would make people feel even more Ape-like. I have done a sketch of it but realised I cannot attach images, so I'll try to send it straight to your email address. If this does not work, perhaps you could let me know how I could send it ?

It's the second time I've done this in the 12 months since I was diagnosed with a rare, incurable cancer. The feeling of achievement at the end is absolutely incredible. I'd very much love to get to Grizedale and do the zip trekking adventure - that would be amazing - but it's a long, long way from home and who's to know when my time's going to run out? But on these two occasions at least, I have lived to the max. And it wouldn't have been the same without my 2 best mates - love you both

Overcoming my fears and perceived limitations. I have had a hip problem my whole life which meant that I couldn't do anything like this. I've had them both replaced so now I can try anything.....and succeed!!

My partner and my daughter completed the course. I tried but had no upper body strength. I think it is so well organised and friendly .. even though I didn't complete I was not made to feel like a failure. Well done guys on a great place

Really enjoyed the whole experience, loved how tricky some of the challenges were and with a little courage on my part we powered through. I went with my neice as it was her 5th birthday and that was her wish. She loved every minute of it, as we got off at the end she wanted to go round again. So much fun :)
