“Great experience for the children”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

This was our first visit, with two (almost) 9 year old boys. The short training session was very necessary and professional. They were then allowed on the tree climbing adventure, which starts off easy and gets more difficult and much higher as it goes on.

There are only a couple of instructors present, so you have to supervise your own children around the course; to start with you can easily reach them, but they need the skill and confidence to deal with the course on their own, as the climbs get higher.

A couple of children did falter part-way around the course and had to be brought down by the instructors, so do be prepared for a short wait if this happens. In all, including these waits, the boys were on the course for a bit over two hours.

They absolutely loved it and judging by the long sleep in the car later in the day, I am guessing that it was quite physically demanding also.

I thought at £12 each it was a bit expensive, but then I was reminded how much a recent trip to a theme park cost, or even a couple of hours in a funfair. So everything is relative.

Will definitely go back. Would make a great activity for a party.

Grandchildren loved the experience. Can thoroughly recommend it. It was a combination of daring and excitement for both of them. Will definitely visit again.

“Great!”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Took the boys as it's nearby, and relatively cheap (£12 for 2 hours) We booked online, so chose less populated time slots, which made it easier with less queing.
The staff gave thorough safety talks and was great with the kids, tho I'd have liked to see them out on the course more rather than in the hut on their mobile phones.
The course is safe, with several different difficulty settings, so suitable for range of ages (better to be at least 6 tho to get a decent use of the equipment as the higher courses are for taller kids)
Once you're done with the course, you've got Lydiard to enjoy too, so you can make it a full day out at no extra cost. We're going back for sons 8th birthday party soon!
there's lydiards café and toilets next to it, and lydiards play park opposite, so it has all you need.

“Great Fun for all ages!!”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

We went with mixed ages 4,6 & 10 all 3 children really enjoyed the courses, the little 4 year old couldnt do everything as the Black & red courses are for older children but he really enjoyed doing the green courses and the zip lining rocket! all 3 children had fun in the fresh air and it took us a good 2 hours to complete so really really worth the £12.00 per child, alot cheaper than other ropes courses we have been to! we will be back in the summer!
