TREE TOP ADVENTURE, Dalby

23rd February 2017

We had a fantastic afternoon at the Dalby tree top adventure this had term. Our youngest daughter was so desperate to reach 10 and be tall enough to take part. So yesterday was the day! All four of us (me, husband, daughter age 11, youngest daughter 10) had the best experience. Exciting and worth every penny. Would highly recommend to everyone as a great three hour adventure!! Staff friendly and helpful. All in all a great half term thingto do.

Such a great experience, especially for someone who doesn't usually handle heights well! Feels really safe, and you spend so much time thinking about how you're going to tackle the bridges that you forget how high you are, and just have fun.

TREE TOP ADVENTURE, Aberfoyle

I loved the zip wires they were exhilarating and the views were spectacular. The swinging logs were terrifying especially when it was raining as it made them slippy but it was all part of the fun. It wouldn't been as fun without the fear factor and sense of achievement! Loved it and already planned to come back!

TREE TOP ADVENTURE, Grizedale

23rd February 2017

I was looking after my 14 year old and 12 year old. There were two times on the route where i found my 12 year old had unclipped both blue and red. They were only unclipped for seconds in both occasions - the first was right at the beginning when she was confused and the second was towards the end when she was a little tired and trying to rush things when she had got the wrong side on something. I would never take her up on this again obviously. I think it is too dangerous for someone her age and there isn't enough information to explain this. The safety concentrates on whether i will accept responsibility (repetitively - in retrospect suggesting you know this is too dangerous for people her age) without explaining how clear a head people need to be able to keep. Sorry this is negative feedback but if it saves someones life ? and i don't like not being able to submit without answering all your questions - which says to me you are thinking about yourselves rather than interested in my feedback

Everything was very efficiently handled and the kids had a great time. The young man James who put them in the harness and did the briefing with the kids was great with them, even remembered their names as they went round.
