We had great fun here. We weren't brave enough to do the highest courses this time... next time we'll give them a go! Safety briefing was concise, and the setting was wonderful and really well maintained.

This was just awesome. Perfect balance between adrenalin rush and safety which i don't think i've experienced in anything else. Other activities either have an element of danger (and are therefore exciting) or are so totally safe they are could be considered boring. This was great. I really pushed myself out of my comfort zone and as a 40 something with two pre teens, it was a great bonding exercise for us as well. Great staff and so relaxed and easy to take own lunch and refreshments as returning to car so easy. No gift shop (to tempt the kids) or highly priced cafe (to tempt all of us) so that was another bonus too. Could have easily made a whole day of it with full picnic as there are plenty of places to set up 'camp' and relax in between climbs. Highlight of the school holidays for me as Mum as well as my two boys (11 and 12). Because of remoteness, only portaloos available but this should not be a deterrent!

This adventure is great for stretching all the family. There are many courses to choose from at all different levels (literally). This activity suited the reticent 8 year and the adventurous 11 year but was never too boring or unchallenging for the parents.

You are limited by height, which is because the little ones can't reach the wires on the climbs that are too tall for them (1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.5 meter increments). All kids need an adult to supervise to keep them sensible (ratios vary for different age groups).

We all had such fun, although as the supervisor of the 1.3 meter kids I wanted to go crazy on the higher, scarier adventures but I was still satisfied (and worn out) by the end despite the limitations.

Staff are helpful, friendly, always at hand when you need them (without being in your face). Bring drinking water, snacks, lunch (there are plenty of picnic tables around). Toilets are primitive but better than nothing. You will get a few scrapes and bruises - you didn't have enough fun if you don't!

Good in any weather but dress to get wet if it is rainy. Looking forward to going again (but on the higher and scarier climbs!).

A great way to enjoy a few hours amongst mother nature, the rustle of the wind withinn the trees,the excitement of playing tag in the air,the art to buiding confidence,a great day out for the family,friends,partners, if you can walk and climb, then this is a pretty cool place to go.

We took 3 9year old girls for a birthday treat, and they had the best time. Totally safe fun (thanks to the guides), yet they still had great challenges to overcome which took them well out of comfort zones but with smiles on their faces all the way. They went as far as they could go in their age range, but still want to go back as soon as...
