  • Totally great time had by all for my son's 13th Birthday party. The only downside is no toilets in the immediate vicinity of the GO Ape Hut, nearest at the Leeds castle entrance. (this comment made by all the lads after going round the course for 2/3hours). The booking side of things very easy, I did go out to Leeds Castle GO Ape prior to booking and chatted with a member of staff re my booking as I always like to see things in person and get info face to face. So I was a little miffed at the time I had to provide 1adult for each two teenagers taking part, (but it was explained) then if I wanted one of the shelters for afterwards that would cost extra aswell! I did book when there was a promotion so I did save a few pounds. And I decided against hiring a shelter 'thingie' due to the lack of facilities. That all said all 6 teenagers and 3(adults)big kids had a great time. Thank you.
