Grandma is 67, and she enjoyed climbing into the arborial upper reaches with our grandchildren. Being a crass coward, I stayed on the ground and took photos instead. She rode the zipline, hands off, all grins - and then got stuck when she ran backwards...More

Only 2 of our 3 Grand Daughters have experience at Bristol Zoo and other Go Ape locations, so we decided upon the Lydney Site. Right decision we all enjoyed it. Them up high and us firmly on the ground.

Our son and a friends son did this together, they were just old enough to do without an adult to supervise. It took them about 2.5 hours to complete the course and they loved it. Not cheap though.
