Go Ape You Tube

The Grizedale Course is perfect for those staying in southern and central lakes.

Grizedale Forest offers lots to of rambles and walks for members of the party who aren't taking part in the Go-Ape course....although it is great fun to be a spectator, and someone does need to be on the ground to get all those photo shoots!

Jacob - 14 : It was a really fun course. Challenging, quite diverse. There is a lot to it - swinging, jumping, climbing and its really high up - so thrilling. It exceeded my expectaions. I'd go again tomorrow if I could.

Olivia - 12 It was really cool being so high up and wobbling about. On the zip wires you are just going so fast - it felt like you were flying
