“Disapointing”
Reviewed 1 August 2011

This is the worst tree climbing parkI have been to (i have experience from 3 others previously in France and Norway), the site is poorly maintained : plateforms are not straight, already some rust on wires and fastenings, nails sticking out of trees. The site is poorly delimited with ropes all over the places, the forrest is of the least interresting type and not well cleared. The site present other activities as well but everything is amateurish and does not give a good impression of safety.

“Climb & Swing through the trees - fun for all the family”
Reviewed 9 September 2010

We went to Monkey World in August 2010. It's a few acres of forest, that the owner has rigged up with rope bridges, swings, zip wires etc.
You start off by getting a harness and some instruction on how to keep yourself clipped to the safety wires at all times & then you're free to explore.
There are (I think) a dozen different routes through the trees, each colour coded according to difficulty. My 6 & 8 year olds loved it, and loved working their way through the easier courses, scampering up nets and through barrels up in the trees and then whizzing down the zip wires on pulleys. It really is fun for all ages and there are a few black runs which are up in the tree tops and are quite scary.
We spent an hour there but you could easily spend half a day I think. There's a cafe on site and the instructors are friendly & helpful.
