What To Expect When Visiting Go Ape

Miss A has never asked to give our local Go Ape a go. Whilst she is too young and too short to complete the adult version of climbing through the trees in the forest, she is perfect for the junior version. When Tina from The Soup Dragon Says mentioned she was coming down with her family to do Go Ape, she asked if Miss A would like to go as well.

I think she would have continued going around all day if we had let her, but it was time to hand the harness back and collect her certificate and sticker. I have a feeling she’ll attempt the adult version as soon as she is old enough.
