Having looked for something a bit different and outdoorsy, I took my girlfriend to Go Ape in the Forest of Dean for her birthday. A number of friends had recommended it and the price seemed reasonable (£30 each), so I booked in.
It was easy to get to, despite being in the middle of a forest! The staff were very friendly on our arrival, welcoming us and letting us know what to expect. I was a bit nervous, due to a slight fear of heights, but the training session was thorough and made me feel more secure.
The lady providing the briefing was pleasant and knowledgeable and encouraged us as we started out.
After the training, you're set free to follow the course, which consists of tarzan jumps, zip wires and balance obstacles, all up in the trees.
My girlfriend and I had a fantastic time - it was scary, fun, exhilarating, physical and at times challenging but overall, well worth the money - a great experience.
