“We had a brilliant time with the nicest staff.”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

Despite the fact that some of us are a little scared by heights, we had a truly amazing time here. All the staff are friendly and kind, but we owe special thanks to Luke for getting us to the end. It took longer ( three hours) was more difficult but was much, much more enjoyable than we expected.

“Amazing day out! Fun for the whole family”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

Black Park was a bit hard to find for tourists arriving by car... We were 5 minutes late for our tree top adventure, but that was not a problem. Two of us went on the Segway tour, and two of us tried the tree top adventure, both of which was great! I would not recommend you to wear to much (warm) clothes on the tree top adventure in the summer, because it will get warm enough!
The Segway tour was about an hour (and went past the movie set for Star Wars VII which was currently filming in the forest) and the tree top adventure took about two.
Tree top adventure: You are very much responsible for your own safety, but you will be well instructed and everything is very safe if you do what the instructor says. It was truly amazing and I would definitely try this again! Thanks to Go Ape Black Park for a great day out!

“Great day out”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

Booked to go on a Friday, weather was not good in the morning when we booked and called up and changed it to later in the day with no problems. Instructor was very good and friendly, as were all the staff. From start to finish we were there for 3 hours, but this very much depends on how fast you work theough the different courses. Lved the Tarzan swing amd zip lines. Would go back to try other GoApe courses too in other lcations.

“Pure adrenalin”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

I did the treetop go ape with my sister and 13 year old niece. We had a fabulous time, the instructor was very thorough to ensure we knew what we were doing before we went up on out own.
Each of the sections has a difficulty rating and some of the more difficult ones have an alternate route, so you can opt out if it seems to be too challenging.
There are 5 sections (so 5 zip wires!) and they seemed to become more challenging as your confidence grows.
It took us 2.5 hours to complete the training and course, and I would highly recommend it to anyone up for the challenge.

“Conquer your fears”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

As posted on previous posts I'm scared of heights but when your 14 year old son wants to give it a go I can't back down can I? After a professional pre instruction we embarked on our adventure. At the first climb up the rope ladder my son was scared witless but he conquered it then on the first rope swing he froze. The instructor was perfect and helped fantastically ( don't forget I'm an adult and was just as scared but could not show it) then after the first couple of obstacles we were sailing across. I then had to call it a day early because JB was too overconfident and forgetting the safety instructions. safety FIRST) we will return soon for the whole day. Love it. Especially the long zip wires that take you to the next level.
