On two wheels or to the trees?
Our Tree Top Challenge at Mallards Pike Lake offers 2-3 hours of forest thrills as you zip, swing and clamber your way to the status of Chief Gorilla amongst your squad. Running for over a decade, our Forest of Dean high ropes site has witnessed a transformation of crossings and obstacles, sure to push you outside the realms of your comfort zone! If you’re looking for Segways in the Forest of Dean we haven’t left you out either. Grab life by the handlebars and prepare to be immersed in the dense wildlife as you whizz through the wood on two heavy duty all terrain wheels.

Our Former Tree Top Adventure
Nestled in England’s largest oak woodland, Forest of Dean plays host to one of our most beautiful adventures. Our Tree Top Challenge in Gloucestershire is one for the intrepid explorer. Speed down our newly–extended zip wires for full-on aerial adventure. Did you know that an Olympic diving platform stands at 10 metres high? Stick another 5m on top of that and you have our highest platform at Tree Top Challenge Forest of Dean! This Gloucestershire Tree Top Challenge is one for the intrepid as you stand toe-to-toe with some all new encounters like the Tank Trap, The Shuffle and Itchen Crossing plus many more.

We can’t promise you’ll see any apes, but you may catch a glimpse of the Tree Top Challengers swinging above you if you look closely enough. Don't let your eyes wander for too long though, as the windy trails will certainly need your concentration - watch out for the bumps!
