There’s no greater rush than the great outdoors, so whether your tribe is a stag do, birthday party, corporate event or simply a day out with the kids, we make our courses as fun and as accessible as possible.

Booked myself, wife and two kids (12 & 10) on the full course at a cost of £112. Expensive yes but wanted something we could all do that was a bit of an adventure. In my opinion, well worth the cost. Took us 3 hours to complete and found it amazing fun, but a real challenge. There are 5 stages and they get progressively harder and higher. The zip wires at the end of each are fantastic and if you figure out how to land gracefully, you are one up on me! One tip I would give is take gloves as some of the tasks do hurt the hands a little. Have fun!

Wow we loved go ape! Sooooo much fun would recommend to anyone I know, I was very very nervous but wanted the challenge! The safety is taken very seriously as it is a high risk activity but you are so securely held on that I think the risk is extremely minimal! Once you have been briefed it is very simple and clever how the system works! We did have to wait a while at the bottom once we had zip wired off each section as you are only allowed 3 on each tree at one time, and 1 on each activity at one time. There were four of us and we managed to stick together, swapping who went first once we got to the the forest floor and on to the next challenge. I would recommend wrapping your feet up warm and wearing gloves though... We really needed ours! Even though it was warm I clung on so tightly it really helped to stop blisters etc...I ached so much for a few days on the upper body! Great fun just do it!!! P.s zip wires are just soooo high and amazing it's like flying!!

What a great attraction, I took my 7 year old son last Sunday for his first trip into the treetops and he had a fantastic time. The staff were great, really helpful and reassuring, he went round 5 times in his allotted hour and particularly loved the zip wire att he end of each circuit. A great level for him as it was a challenge, particularly on the second section where there is more movement in the structures, but he had a fabulous time. We will definitely be going back, fantastic fun!

Went on a hen do - really great time, will return. Friendly staff and exhilarating fun! Didn't think it would be my thing but it was great. Don't do it on a hang over though, as friends learnt to their peril!!!!
