Excellent morning spent at go ape for my 40th birthday celebrations. Friendly staff both at start and around the course to help us if we got stuck. Loads of zip wires which were great fun! Would highly recommend.

What a great experience! It was our first time and we had a blast! The team were super friendly and reassuring! Their instructions were super easy to get your head around. The course itself is challenging and super fun!
