Go Ape, Moors Valley near Bournemouth
I don’t know who had more fun, the kids or the adults. We were recently camping at Eweleaze Farm in Dorset and thought we’d take the opportunity to check out Go Ape, The UK’s #1 Forest Adventure. One of my friends always wanted to take her daughter and as we were in the area, approx 30 miles away, we thought ‘why not?’.
I stayed on the ground and supervised the 3 girls aged 6 and 7 on the Tree Top Junior Adventure, while the two adults, I use the description ‘adult’ loosely as you will see by the photos, went on the main Tree Top Adventure.
The Junior Adventure is suitable for children aged 6 and up but they have to be over 1m. They have an hour to clamber around the site, navigating wobbly crossings and zooming down the zip wires. The nice thing about the Junior Adventure is that they are connected the entire time via a cable so incredibly safe. The girls absolutely loved it and charged around like loons and got 5-6 ‘goes’ on the two routes, even though it was rather busy.
Once the girls finished we tracked down their mums on the Main Tree Top Adventure so we could watch/laugh at them from the Forest Floor. There’s takes a bit longer 2.5-3 hours with 5 different circuits, is higher, scarier and more physically challenging (suitable for 10+) but by all accounts they loved it!
One of the mums said ‘she can’t remember the last time she had that much fun!’
