Learn to fly in Paradise! You'll be amazed by what you can achieve in just a short time with us. No previous experience is necessary, and with the right timing most beginner 'flyers' are able to make a mid-air catch in just one lesson. Full safety equipment and instruction is provided by our professional team of 3 staff, and we cater for almost all abilities and ages - from 6 to 76 so far! Whether you're taking a 'try fly' at one of our 90minute lessons, or signing up for one of our fun-filled three, five or ten day packages, our crew of instructors and 'catchers' will build up your knowledge and skills step by step, allowing you to progress at your own pace. You'll learn positions and tricks on our ground level practice bar, and see aerial demo's from one of our team before you have a go at mastering the timing in mid-air yourself. You'll find yourself pulling off a back flip dismount on your first attempt, and at the end of your session you can go for a mid-air catch - 70% of our students manage it in just one lesson! So what are you waiting for? Roll up, roll up, and join the Koh Tao circus!

Gemma' is a great teacher, gives just the right amount of instruction, its a bit confusing to start with to really understand what your doing or not doing, or when you ment to be doing it but really really good fun. I was quiet suprised at the adrenline hit after the first go too. Gemmas got an intresting story how... More

I lived on Koh Tao for two years and knew Gemma to chat with and always said I would give it a go however I have fibromyalgia - a chronic muscle fatigue syndrome so was put off by the physicality of trapeze thinking I wouldn't be able to cope. When Gemma decided to run a class for us locals I... More

I went on Thursday to try the flying trapeze, and I loved it! Although I didn't manage a catch (or even get my legs over the bar... Lol!), it was still super fun swinging on the bar. It was fun aswell to see others in my group progressing and managing a catch, we all became friendly and it was a... More

I had never considered flying Trapeze as an activity which normal people could try until I visited Koh Tao. I am so glad that I saw the posters and decided to give it a go. To be able to swing from a bar suspended 30ft in the air and fly from it towards someone else is amazing. Gemma is a... More

If you had asked me a week ago if I wanted to climb a 32ft ladder, onto a platform, hopped onto a suspended bar and done a backflip in the air I would have laughed in your face.. However after meeting and talking with Gemma down at the Goodtime Adventures office I was sold - not only is she extremely... More

Thank you for your review of your flying trapeze experience. You were a perfect example of how flying trapeze can help conquer a fear of heights. Standing on the edge of that platform for the first time (we've all been there) can be pretty scary and adrenaline spiking! But as you now know, after that first swing, relief sets in... More

Within the first hour of arriving at the beautiful Koh Tao island I had already heard about Gemma's "flying trapeze" course, and by the second hour I was jumping off a platform and turning backflips from a giant swing! Gemma and the rest of the Good Times staff are as knowledgable as they are personable and you simply cannot come... More

Ha, I had so much fun in this class. We were all flying around, not only up in the air but off the ground too ;-) Ten out of ten to you for spontaneity, you'd literally just arrived and we signed you up! If you ever get the chance again to train on a flying trapeze anywhere else in the... More

Great experience trying out flying trapeze for the first time. I would highly recommend it to anyone in the area. It's a little scary at first but with fantastic instruction and guidance, everyone is made comfortable no matter what experience. I really enjoyed trying out something new and would love to go again.

HEY! Obviously we miss having you guys around, and supporting in the crowd (heckling ;-) ). Next time we will definitely get you up there too. At Flying Trapeze Adventures on Koh Tao, students get to progress at their own individual pace, as we are fortunate enough to have super small groups with a maximum of 6 students. This student...

Flying trapeze in Koh Tao is an awesome experience. I had so much fun here. Gemma Semple who runs the trapeze rig is a great instructor, wonderful with first time flyers, which comprise most of her classes. For experienced flyers, Gemma has a lot of wisdom to share. I do flying trapeze regularly as a hobby, and Gemma helped me... More

Well it was an absolute pleasure to teach and hang out with you at the trapeze. It is amazing how both student and coach can continue to change and develop skills year after year. Flying Trapeze has unlimited potential for learning and growth. If you (as a new reader) are interested in taking part in longer courses that are beyond... More
