Treetop Challenge

How far will you dare to go? With the option to adjust the difficulty of this high ropes course, you can crank it up each time you complete a lap of our Treetop Challenge. Even for the most adventurous, this is a high one - 15-metres to be precise. The Stirrups require all of your core strength as you wobble from one to the next, while the aptly named Mallards Ladder makes for a suitably tricky ascent. If you’re looking for fresh ways to push yourself this course includes a number of new challenges including the Tank Trap and The Shuffle – plenty to get the blood pumping for the ultimate adrenaline rush.

16+ regular price: £33
Under 15 regular price: £25

  • Absolutely loved it! It was nice to do something different and we had the perfect weather. My partner and I went for the first time and we both really enjoyed it, although it wasn't as challenging as we thought it would be, it was good enough to get out in the fresh air and beautiful surroundings of the Forest of Dean. Thanks to the lovely team there as well, they were really helpful :)

  • Would recommend to everyone even if you’re scared of heights you feel very safe once all clipped in to each section. Very fun going through the courses especially the zip wires! We spent about 2 hours up in the trees so plenty of time and it was especially gorgeous going in the autum!

  • We were a group of under 16’s and 2 mums in our forties and we all absolutely loved it. We were definitely outside our comfort zone at the start but by the end we all wanted to go back and do it all again! The staff at your Forest of Dean site were extremely helpful and supportive. We’ll be back soon, already decided we’ll be segwaying soon too!
