Go Ape Whinlatter Forest, Cumbria

This centre is about 10 minutes outside of the town of Keswick. We arrived and had a 15 minute safety instruction which mainly consisted of explaining how the 3 safety lines that we had attached to us should be attached to the course as we made our way round. The course is actually made up of 5 sets of obstacles, all high up in the treetops. I have no head for heights and struggled a bit at first, but then I gained confidence in my equipment. Understanding that even if I was to slip off one of the rope bridges or other obstacles I’d still be very safe made things a whole lot easier. The zip lines that took you zooming for distances of hundreds of metres over the forest where brilliant!
