Great family experience. Lots of good obstacles and zip wires. Loved the jump at the end as well. Staff were really helpful. We managed to get through the course in an hour but it depends on where you start in line.

Instructors were very thorough, we (including our 10 year old) felt very confident on the course. Excellent mix of zip wires and trekking between the trees. Really enjoyed it. Feeling sore today!

Hi Rach Thanks for the great review. I will pass on the positive comments to the staff. You do find that you use muscles that you dont use often! Should be ok in a few days. Kind Regards Chris Smith More

Had a great time on an overcast and slightly damp afternoon. The two instructors were helpful, safety conscious and fun. We were all diffrence levels of experience and confidence, however everyone loved their time climbing and zip wiring around the trees.

Spent about 2 hours going around the high rope course, it was great fun and quite challenging. The instructors were really good and helpful. I would recommend it to anyone looking for something fun and a bit different to do.
