    This is the 1st time with family outdoor with my son and his age is 11. We had a great fun and adventures. We loved it. Will definitely make my calender booked for next time and more. I really enjoyed and playing. The guy named SEB at Sherwood was very friendly and cleared all my son doubt. He explained each and every thing regarding the safety and how to handle. Special thanks to him and his team. All staffs are good with their smiley faces. I strongly recommend who ever needs to relax and get their physical build and get motivated by yourself with different level of challenges. I could write more pages..... But in one word. I loved it. I will recommend to my friends and families members. I shall come along with them. Haahhaha

    Went to go ape today at mallards pike Forest of Dean to do the tree top challenge. I was part of the 11am booking my name is Rose. The two fellas that were supporting us how to do the challenge were amazing! I struggled from the start, but every so often they would shout out encouragement and offering support. I really felt like I couldn’t do it , but my family and their support I completed it. These guys made the entire experience better, for that I’m truly thankful. Sorry I can’t remember their names

    We visited for the Treetop Adventure today. My 7 year old daughter managed both challenges with no worries or fear. My 9 year old nephew was very apprehensive, wary and cautious. He managed the first challenge really well and completed the zip line. When he got to the top of the second challenge his nerves kicked in and got the better of him. One of the amazing staff members Max stepped straight in and went up to have a chat with him. Max was great and rather than talk my nephew down he managed to guide him through the challenge. His support and encouraging chats got him all the way round the challenge. My nephew is over the moon he managed to complete it and did the zip line twice too. Just want to give Max and the team on shift today a huge shout out. Thank you all so much, you were great! We would highly recommend Go Ape Dalby. It was a fantastic day.
