Go Ape - High-wire Forest Adventure
Ages 10 years to adult. Giant obstacle courses are built up in the trees using ladders, walkways, bridges and tunnels made of wood, rope and super-strong wire, and topped off with the countryís best zip lines (including the longest at 426 metres Ė check it out on You Tube on the website!).
People are kitted out with harnesses, pulleys and karabiners and then let loose into the forest canopy.
The result is spectacular. The Go Ape experience gets the adrenalin pumping, gets people out of their comfort zones and above all (no pun intended), itís just great fun.
