Well with half term coming to an end we decided to head out and have some fun. We decided that we would head to Go Ape, who wouldn’t love swinging from the trees pretending to be monkeys???
Me! I whimped out but I wouldn’t have been able to get all these great pictures if I had done it.
There are different types of Go Ape adventures, we did the Tree Top Junior adventure. It’s ages at 6 to 12 years old. So perfect for my two to have lots of fun. I wasn’t sure how my youngest would cope with it as she doesn’t really like nights. My eldest I knew would love it at she really likes outdoor stuff especially since she went on a PGL trip with school.
As you can see from the pictures they sure had lots of fun, there was staff on hand to help with any problems.
There are two trails on the Tress Top Junior Adventure a short one called number 1 which they ask you to do if you have never done it before, it is quite and easy one and then they you course number two which is more difficult that the first one and it goes higher.
I wasn’t surprised to see my youngest a little nervous about it all and I did see her hugging the tree once she had gone over a tricky bit. I was down on the ground shouting up support to her and she soon started to really enjoy it. My eldest was loving it and soon went off ahead of the Mr and imp she kept shouting down to me and waving telling me how awesome it was. I on the other hand was fighting off the midges in the woods while trying to take some photos/video. There were times I almost fell over stump or got caught up in some branches.
Watching them jump of a platform to swing along the zip wire was fun, the imp looked so scared to take that leap but she did it and I was so proud. The first course is shorter but you can go on either of the courses as many times as you want/can in the allotted time that you have.
It was so nice to see them all enjoying some high flying fun!
Check out the video at the bottom of this post I filmed some footage.
