What activity brings out your inner adrenaline junkie?
On Saturday Beth and I took to the forests for an adrenaline packed morning with the tribe at GoApe Sherwood to release our inner Tarzan’s (or Janes in Beth’s case)!
Trust us to pick the hottest day of the year so far! Total sweat on!
GoApe had teamed up with Visit Nottinghamshire and we were lucky enough to be invited to take on the TreeTop Challenge! Nestled deep in Sherwood Forest sits a whole host of obstacles and challenges strung between the trees of the densely populated sea of pine trees.
The TreeTop Challenge is set over 5 stages around the forest. Most stages have an easy or harder option depending on how brave you are feeling! We went for a mix of both!
To cross the stage you have to face a number of different obstacles from wobbling bridges, tight ropes, Tarzan swings and zip wires. You are of course always connected to a safety wire and harnessed up, don’t worry!
The Challenge reaches heights of 9m with each stage finishing with a Zip Line, with the longest being 140m!
GoApe describe the Challenge as the ‘Goliath’ of their high rope adventures. That will test your nerve and head for heights.
There are over 30 GoApes in the UK dotted all over the country. Head to their website to find your nearest.
If high ropes aren’t for you they offer a junior version of the challenge, Segway experiences and Sherwood also has a ‘Nets Adventure’ too.
Thanks for a great morning! We will definitely have to tick off a few more GoApe Adventures on our travels 🐵 It really shows you don’t have to venture far to have a great time!
