We went as a family of 4. We did enjoy the activities, but the wait between the start points was excessive. At the last challenge, I think we waited 25 minutes to start. It took us 3 hours in total to get round. This is a shame as it is a great activity and I would recommend it out of season.

We've done Go Ape today and it was really good fun. The staff are very friendly and give you a full safety briefing. It's great to go out of your comfort zone, knowing that it's completely safe. The zip wire descents were a real hoot as well.

Went hear for my sons 11th Birthday we had a great day despite with weather that didn’t spoil it at all. Felt very safe in the harness and we were very high up. Although I do think child price is reasonable but for adults I think would be the same £33 is rather steep and there was a bit waiting about as there was four groups on same time as us and you don’t get the chance to do phases of the course again which you should be able to do but u get to do it only once which is a bit disappointing but over al had good day defo recommend even if frightened of heights it was an experience and brill memories

Absolutely fabulous experience. Lady in hat gave us a great brief and had good banter. 5 different courses really varied with different challenges. Site followed COVID rules well and had adapted for the times well. Great day out and great experience many thanks to lady in hat!

I've been twice before but first time I've taken my daughter. All visits have been great! I was a little apprehensive taking my daughter and her doing the crossings etc before me but was all good. Instructor was great and she understood what she needed to do to stay safe. The provisions for corona are great hand sanitiser soap and water at a couple of the courses and also water to drink - small cardboard cones are supplied. For social distancing you can't go on a platform with other 'bubbles' which although could slow things down actually was great for us as meant my daughter was never on a platform with others when I was on a crossing or the platform behind! Felt like you weren't being rushed and plenty of space for me to help her without others being in the way. It did mean you were at a standstill in some parts when we caught up the the group infront as we went first and the family behind had to wait for us but everyone understood plenty of time to enjoy it, watch others (especially on the 2nd tarzan swing) and take your time on the crossings as noone was too close behind! My daughter was scared and very tentative throughout but thoroughly enjoyed it she wants to do it again! I do think it's a bit pricey and if it was cheaper I'd definitely go more often!!
