Go Ape

Go Ape lets guests explore the lush greenery from the tree tops, with zip wires, forest swings and hairy crossings made of wood, rope and wire. There are 28 Go Ape courses around the UK, all set in picturesque forests, and guests can enjoy the views whilst satisfying their adventurous side.

Kids can run wild at the play centre, with accompanying adults looking on. The inflatable equipment is suitable for children aged from 18 months to 12 years, with bouncy castles and fun houses awaiting discovery. Each child also gets a drink to enjoy while they play, and up to two adults can accompany their children, free of charge.

Located at Fife Leisure Park, Adventure Golf Island’s 40,000 sq ft complex is brimming with seafaring spirit. Both 18-hole courses feature plenty of hazardous obstacles, such as Captain Sparrow’s jail, and a castle with a fort and wooden bridge. Each floodlit course ends with an 18th-hole challenge, which entitles players to a free round if completed.

Adventurers can get stuck in to a full-day course which includes rock climbing, abseiling, aerial adventure and a giant bungee swing. Climbing into action, guests will learn belaying, knots and movement with an introduction to rock climbing (usually £30). The aerial adventure (£15) course will have them navigating vertigo-inducing obstacles before a 15-metre abseil and giant bungee swing. After a break for lunch, guests can apply their newly-acquired rock climbing skills and learn how to climb the ice wall (£30), before they relax in the sauna and steam room.
