A rash promise to the smaller of the teenagers, meant that I had to follow through with a trip to Go Ape for her 15th birthday. She had been before but it was my first visit and to be honest I was scared witless about it. We had pre-booked and got a discount because the teenager has signed up for the Duke of Edinburgh Award. Given the price of an afternoon at Go Ape, the discount was very helpful.
The training that we got from Jim, before we started was very thorough and although I spent most of my childhood climbing trees, I was never as high as I was today. Everyone under the age of 18 has to be directly supervised, which means they go first. Personally I think that this is a way of ensuring that the adult does not cop out of going on the first zip wire, as your teenager will have gone in front of you. Looking down on the zipwire from the first platform if I had gone first may have meant that I didn’t go any further…
The remaining 4 areas on the other side of the gorge were a much easier matter. Most people could manage these and instructors were around for assistance if required. When there were extremely difficult moves, there were easier options. However please take gloves.
I managed not to land on my feet at any of the zipwires! It was great fun.
Please book this in advance.
