25 of us went to the Forest for the day from Center Parcs, and had a fantastic time!
6 people went to Go Ape and had a fantastic time! At £30 for 2-3hours for Go Ape, it is excellent value for money. You are shown all the safety bits (instructions are clear) and you then go around the track. There are 5 different 'courses' and you go round 1 at a time, so if you are scared (as one of our group was), you can leave at any time. Each course ends with a zip wire
The course was challenging and exciting, with varying difficulty levels, and everyone was in hysterics! Visitors can follow the trail the whole way.
Advice to those thinking about Go Ape - wear old shoes, long trousers (and tuck socks into trousers) and an old hoody! Down the zip wire you have no control over how you will land, and you end up with bark everywhere (including in underwear!!!)
9 of us did the Segway Course and cannot fault the experience! I had personally done a segway course elsewhere (Segrally, Snetterton Circuit Norfolk) and in comparison this is 100 times better. It was a properly built course and we were able to go off on our own.
We are all planning on visiting Go Ape again soon (and will swap, so those who did Segway will try Go Ape and vice versa). It really was fantastic!!!!!
The only downside was the parking charge (£1.90 an hour or £10 all day). Other than that, the activities were fantastic, there was lots to do for our family who came to watch (a cafe, a small restaurant, an ice cream shop, a climbing wall for children at £3, pony rides at £12, BBQ stands to hire).
I cannot recommend this enough. A fantastic day that we will all remember for a long time.
