Very well ran activity. Highest lines not for the faint hearted. Would highly recommend for those who like a bit of adventure. Could spend a full day in forest park with all the different activities.

Absolutely loved this place, lots of fun on the zipit wires. One of the kids got scared and the staff were so professional and helped them down. I am definitely coming again but with adults so I can try the harder courses

Absolutely fantastic experience for my almost teen daughter. Thorough training and then she was able to head off independently and choose her routes. Plenty of staff on hand to help if needed. Top class.
