And so, the countdown to Black Friday begins. For some reason we can’t quite explain, this annual event (taking place on 24th November) seems to send everyone slightly doolally.
Queues of people camped outside shops, stampedes through doors, shelves stripped bare of stock, products strewn in the air, staff scared stiff. Customers actually fighting with one another over a measly toaster – you might have seen the videos!
It’s almost like Black Friday has summoned a full moon, and it’s turned us all into ravenous monsters!
Do something different
So, here’s a suggestion for you: rather than unleashing your inner beast this Black Friday, why not unleash your inner Tarzan at Go Ape instead!? Dodge the deals, miss the masses, and spend some time working on your wellbeing in the comfort of the canopy!
We guarantee that tackling a Tree Top Adventure will be much more rewarding than getting a bargain deal on a new hoover or laptop. Making memories is way more important than material things – and they last longer, too!
Would you rather look back and remember the time you played tug-of-war with the last coat in your size with another customer? Or, would you rather reminisce of your Go Ape forest adventure, when you got to spend some much-needed quality time with your friends and family?
When you’re hanging with the furry tribe at Go Ape, you’ll feel a million miles from the hustle and bustle (read: manic panic) of Black Friday and modern life in general. This is a chance to go back to basics, disconnect from the outside world and reconnect with nature, as well as with yourself.
Clambering up the seemingly-endless rope ladder to the first platform, you and your tribe will be faced with a full-on, tree-mendous obstacle course. You’ll be put to the test mentally and physically, as you suss out how to best overcome each obstacle, from tightropes and stirrups to bridges, nets and more! Hands or no hands? Eyes shut or open? Slow or quick as possible? You decide!
When you’ve all whizzed down that final zip wire, landing (gracefully or ungracefully) in a squidgy pile of woodchip, how do you fancy hopping aboard some Segways for a unique tour of the forest? It’s a great way to cool down after a Tree Top Adventure – your legs won’t need to do any work, just stand, lean and roll!
Thoughts of Black Friday and 90%-off deals will fizzle away the moment you arrive at the forest. Listen to the birds, see how the trees glisten in the winter frost and fill your lungs with fresh, crisp, forest air.
