I’ve written about Go Ape before, I may even have raved on a little bit but it really is a perfect family day out with outdoor adventure fun for everyone!
Based all over the country, and with the British summer uncharacteristically behaving itself, there really is no excuse not to join in the fun! Go Ape offers a range of outdoor activities for you to choose from. We’ve already had a go at their renowned Tree Top Adventure, where I overcame my fear and clambered up into the tree canopy in the Forest of Dean before soaring down an exhilarating zip wire, scooping leaves into my knickers as I went - much to the amusement of Teen 1, Teen 2 and Mr TS.
We’re keen to have a go at the Forest Segway experience- where you can balance your way through the forests and take in the beautiful scenery, possibly less scary and a really lovely way to see more of the forest than we normally reach on foot.
This isn’t just one for the kids it really is an adult’s playground, but if you are looking for a day out with the whole family, Go Ape also offers experiences for junior adventure-goers. The Tree Top Junior experience offers little monkeys the chance to explore the outdoors through adventure trails specially designed for youthful participants. It is aimed at 6 – 12 year olds so we can take Bonus Boy and my slightly acrophobic daughter along, where she can pretend to be looking after him while having a fine old time herself!
With the British summer that we are having this really is a great way to spend your day and get outdoors. Once I had scaled the ladders and stood amongst the tree tops the views took my breath away. This unique adventure provides thrill seekers with a day of fun amongst the backdrop of incredible scenic views and it is a fabulous way to embrace the great outdoors with the whole family – even cynical teens!
