“Indian Forest........High Ropes - extreme!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

We visited the Indian forest just a few weeks ago now and had an amazing time.
The attraction is an outdoor activity based one and caters for all ages. Based around a spectacular high ropes course - or rather a set of high ropes courses, the site is in woodland and has a loose theme of being 'Indian', think Sioux rather than Bollywood! There is in addition to the High ropes courses, a crystal maze/fort buoyard style activity course, giant inflatables (wet - swimsuits and dry ones), Archery, paintball, ponies, mini golf, gravity down hill go carts and several opportunities to throw yourself from high places onto mattresses(giant stunt man style) or get propelled 60 foot in the air on the end of a bungy cord. - Oh and food of course.
We went with x2, 12 year olds and x2, 14 year olds plus the ancients that are mum and dad.
the high ropes courses make the 'Go-Ape' Uk style ones pale into insignificance for height and daring. there are staff members all over the place, ready to rescue and encourage you should you need it. 4 levels of course range from those accessible to smaller children and the height conscious to the 'black' courses only for those over 15 (I think). My 2, 14 year olds completed the red course which were the prelude to the black and were 50'+ up on aerial skateboards and other amazing but crazy things. At all times they are attached to the safety wire as they are in the Uk based versions. The courses overlap and cross over each other and there are 2 km of them to do, watching was amazing and if you are just going in to the park to spectate and carry the bags then there is no charge. Indeed you are only charged for what you do and no more, which is a pleasant refreshing change. Ours cost 42 Euros each to do everything bar the paintball and the stupidly high pendulum swing. Our smaller two were limited by their height to the easier courses which were challenging and great for them. I decided not to have a go as the Uk versions (I find anyway) are far too tame and having seen what the kids were doing regret not having a go!
We spent some 9 hours at the site and could have easily spent longer, however the call of food and exhaustion were both speaking loudly at that time.

“Serious zip wires !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

This place was great ! You can choose from a number of activities either individually or as a package. My 12yr old son, friend and his dad did the zip wire for 12 euros each and said it was the most amazing , serious zipwire experience ever! They had been on one in a smaller park, but this surpassed that completely. I doubt if they would be allowed to do it in the UK, health and safety and all that , and to be honest, I'm glad I wasn't watching because from what they told me it was quite scary! However they loved it - I , meanwhile, sat in the shade of the bar drinking fruit juice and listening to a very competent band , albeit briefly interrupted by a full on girlly fist fight that errupted behind me! They were French I hasten to add. In addition to many other tree climbing activities there is a 'Fort Bouyard' type set of challenges that 12 yr old boys and grown men and women love - this cost 15 euros per person so we left it to the boys to do . All in all , a nice change to the holiday's usual days out and food not too badly priced either made by a very harrassed but extremely accommodating and hard working 'chef' preparing paninis and baguettes, chips and ice-creams at a reasonable price . There was also a sit down restaurant . Nice place to visit - especially if you want to get out of the heat for a while!
