We used our Go Ape experience to meet up with family members that we haven't seen for a few months. Not Go Ape's fault but the car park was a nightmare and I got the last parking space and I don't know what would have happened if I couldn't get in. The course was loved by all, it had a good variety of obstacles and is more in the trees than some other courses. The staff were very helpful and there were plenty all along the course.

Very pleasant staff at every stage. Instructors were firm with safety briefings but friendly and caring when the course became a little challenging (and some kind coaxing was required). Our kids felt so proud and were beaming when they had finished. Excellent morning.

I was extremely impressed with the safety instructions and the care of and friendliness of the staff. I would love to bring my grandchildren to these occasions again around the country but it is simply too expensive. We came at the beginning of the season. We were the only 4 people within the 1/2 hour slot (yet 30 are available) so when the are is so very very quiet, could you not offer cheaper rates, to allow those with less funds to experience something which is very useful. I was taking one with asbergers and one dyslexic and it was so beneficial to them, to have it so impressed on them that they had to listen to and follow instructions, which they meticulously did all the way through. It was 3 hours of concentrated effort. The dyslexic one arrived home and went straight to bed shattered by giving all her concentration. But how valuable for her. She was so made up that she had succeeded and had followed all the instructions without failing. There is an opportunity here for you to help families like ours in your quiet periods. I did ask about the use of the compass cards but because I was taking two children I didn't qualify for any help.

I was very happy with the go ape experience and my daughter really enjoyed it. However, i was very unhappy that i was charged a £3 booking fee. I feel this is excessive. Also, I allowed the sale to continue as I assumed I had read the price incorrectly. I was therefore surprised to discover that this cost had bern added. I do not feel that you are being upfront or clear about this.

I booked for the 2pm experience. We were briefed and went on our way to each stage. We got to stage 2 and we stuck behind a girl afraid of heights for 40 MINUTES. When we finally got out of stay 2 it was 4.30 because there was no way for her to get down or anyone to tell her to get down until she'd stood there about 30minutes somebody finally came over. I booked this as a surprise present and we had to leave by 5 to get to the next part of the day. When we got to stage 3, the SAME GIRL was on her way up so we knew we couldn't have time to complete the course. When we left and told staff what happened and that we couldn't complete the course they laughed it off. Will not be returning after spending over £60 to only get half way round. 3 hours should of been plenty of time to complete the course but due to no staff moving the girl who refused to move we were unable to get off the course or go any further.

One of my sons was a bit nervous to start with and the other was adamant he didn't want to do it once he was up a height, however, the course instructors couldn't have been any better at encouraging them and they were soon away. They were then on hand for the duration and were nothing short of exerlent at encouraging and helping them push some fear boundaries. They both had a great time. Fantastic. Chris S
