“Well organised, good day out, bit tricky to find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

All in all a good day out. We had some nervous people in our group and the staff were helpful in reassuring them.
Its not cheap, but there are no hidden costs, so we knew exactly what we were paying for, so I don't view this as a negative.

Allow plenty of time to get there- its not terribly well sign posted, we got lost even with sat nav and maps, and only got there in the nick of time!

“Satisfied my inner-ape!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013 via mobile

Wow! If you want a mini adventure that makes you smile, freak out then feel the rush of accomplishment after facing your fears, this is for you! We had the best time with friends, making memories and we're still talking about it now! Make this your main activity for a day out. It's exhausting ... in a good way!

“went ape!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

It was great!!! good price for a great activity to keep us energized for the vacation ahead :)

I liked that there were different options for different skill levels/fear levels. You can take as long as you want to and enjoy the scenery while you're up there.

“Great fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013 via mobile

We are 50+ so were a bit worried about doing it, the instructors were great and helpful, had a fantastic time, a few bumpy landings on the zip wires, added to the fun,we left with smiles on our faces and feeling young again. Worth the price.
