  • Great place for a day out, set in a really nice big park with loads of other activities as well as go ape, instructors really helpful and cheerful, course was loads of fun whatever the weather.
  • Superb high ropes course. Expensive but superb staff and instruction. Suitable for over 10 years / 1.4m tall. Be aware - parking isn't cheap and is coin only. Take £7 with you to be safe. Go Ape is the opposite side of the car park to everything else.
  • A great experience as always and I have been here a few time before over the years. The guide Max was super helpful, he noticed the protrusion of my ileostomy bag under my shirt (which I completely forgot might be an issue) and offered me a different harness to help and cause less discomfort. He was kind courteous and kept it as discreet as to not embarrass myself. A great adventure in the trees.....a highly recommended experience for anyone who hasn't done it before or others who have been to different sites. The Tarzan swing and multiple zip wires at haldon forest make it a great site to go
  • Friendly staff, good instruction session at the beginning before you go off on your own. Our group really enjoyed it - makes you feel proud of yourself when you complete it (especially the zip wires!)
  • A lot of fun! Our guide, Max, was friendly and funny and very good at getting the safety instructions across without being condescending. The course itself is great - it's quite physical, but as someone who hates exercise I managed to enjoy myself! Would recommend gloves as my hands were hurting a lot afterwards, and don't wear clothes you're overly bothered about as they will get covered in woodchips from the zipline landings!
