Took my 11 year old son. He had a fantastic time on the high ropes, staff were great explained in great detail how they apply the kit, clear instructions on safety rules. Gave help and encouragement when required to a few of the other members of the group. I was rather nervous myself and I was observing with my feet... More

Started off wit a tasty lunch followed by axe throwing which was fun. Our instructor- Guy- was a very kind/ professional guy and a good laugh too. Everyone enjoyed the high ropes also- a great, non boozy (much) day time stag activity and would recommend to anyone/ everyone.

I'm a primary school teacher and I have been taking classes to Beamish Wild for the past two years. It really is a fantastic day out, especially for children who live inner city and don't realise there is a world out there! I have always been impressed with the staff, they are excellent with the children. The activities are always... More

We took 12 children from 11-14 yrs old and they thoroughly enjoyed it. From small to tall, they hadn't been on a zip wire before but by the time they had gone around the course, their confidence exploded! From crying to laughing, they wanted to go round again but time ran out. Instructors were so professional and caring and called... More

I love high rope courses and zip wires etc... This course is great and has lots to it! I've been to the popular Go Ape and this is just as good! It's a fun adventure course in the tree tops for anyone!

I had an absolutely great day at beamish wild a month or so ago. Although I have a very bad fear of heights and I was very scared most of the way around I enjoyed the adrenalin. The staff were very calm and helpful. If I was in need of help or confidence boost a lad that works there called... More
