Before we ventured into the trees, we were given a harness which was fitted by the instructors and then given a very thorough safety check.

We had a great time it was hard at times but very fun. The instructors were very helpful and did explain all the safety points well. I felt very safe the whole time. Also it was good because you could take your time and there was no pressure to rush.

Brought for my partner for his Christmas present! The staff were friendly and extremely helpful! Although my partner was extremely excited I was a bit nervous myself if I would be okay at it. It was very simple though and we both enjoyed it! Great present idea!

this was my wifes choice of event for her birthday and eleven of us participated. The training was very thorough and well done and you were well supervised but the staff gave you room to enjoy the event. A bit scary at times but trust the staff and the equiment and enjoy it. Great day.

This is awesome ! Given all the safety instructions and left to go off at your own pace. So much fun! But I wouldn't recommend doing this during a blizzard.
