We came to do go ape as a family of adults for my sister's 30th. Some of us are affraid of heights, some of us are very sporty and some the absolute opposite but we all had an amazing time. The staff are friendly, the views are amazing and it was great fun for all of us
Rated 5 Bananas Sarah - Tree Top Junior, on 3 May 2016
The staff were so professional, happy and helpful. They obviously love their jobs! The course was great and my family went round the courses several times! They loved the zip wire! Lovely touch to receive a sticker and certificate at the end! Thank you. Great birthday treat for my husband and son!
Rated 4 Bananas Lucy - Tree Top Junior, on 3 May 2016
For all the encouraging informative members of staff, we remember the one who ALMOST spoilt it for our little boy. In his haste to get our harnesses on, he said to my son 'you can't do the trail you are too young' not having found out that we were booked on the junior trail. A little less haste and more diplomacy in talking to the younger members of a group would have made our experience better. My son for a moment, after days of excitement thought he wasn't able to join us on the trail, not a good start to a birthday treat. Please be aware of how you speak to children, they can take things to heart.
