Our Tribe’s Got Talent!

May Games
Ready for a challenge? Of course you are!This month, we’re calling out to you, our talented tribesmen and tribeswomen!

We say, forget the Olympics. Give up on the Commonwealth Games. If you’ve got ninja-like reflexes and the balance of a ballerina, we’ve got just the competition for you.

#MayTheGamesBegin…

Ever watch Britain’s Got Talent and feel a burning desire to stand on that stage and show the panel and the world what you’ve got? Can you imagine showcasing your show-stopping skill to a screaming crowd, who rise to their feet shouting “more, more, more” and endlessly applaud the moment you stop?

While our competition won’t be televised, it will help to give your talent the recognition it truly deserves!Our competition rewards the mastery of the miscellaneous skills. This is your opportunity to flaunt your party-trick prowess and, at the same time, be in with a chance of winning some awesome Go Ape goodies.

So, here’s the deal: Every week in May, our instructors will be demonstrating their dexterity and ingenuity by taking on a series of unique challenges. What do you have to do? Well, quite simply, you have to do it better.

You need to record your attempt at outshining our instructors, sharing your video on one of our social channels or emailing the footage to [email protected].

The Banana HQ tribe then have the fun job of watching all the vids and choosing the ones we like best. We’ll reward any entry that makes us gasp in awe, or gives us a good ol’ giggle.

Unfortunately, you’ve already missed out on our first challenge, which was to show to the world that you can peel a banana faster and/or funnier than anyone else…with your feet! Instructor Bob from Go Ape Bedgebury Forest set the bar with his digits, but you folks didn’t disappoint either!

Here is Bedgebury Bobs attempt …

This week, we’re asking you to practice your ‘om’ and bid passers-by ‘Namaste!’ as you pull a tree yoga pose in the most adventurous place you can. We want you to think outside of the box for this one.

Ready, set, balance…The challenges left for this month involve koala cuddles and even more bananas (what can we say, they’re our fave fruit).

Here are some of our Tribes attempts so far …

Get Ahead This Spring Bank Holiday

Tree Top Junior Southampton

Bank holiday season is upon US!

 

We’ve already been treated to three bank holidays recently thanks to Easter, and May Day and before we know it Spring Bank Holiday will be upon us and then we have to wait until August for another!

Have you penciled your plans into the diary yet, or does it leave a Monday-shaped hole in your calendar? After three you should be well rehearsed but fear not its not too late to take the time to start making preparations‚ take a look at these handy tips for making the most of your long weekend!

 

Write a list

 

A bank holiday means you have 50% more time to do the things you’ve been nagging yourself to do, but haven’t got around to. There’s nothing more satisfying than striking a line through that dreaded chore you’ve been putting off for ages. Once it’s done, it’s done, and you can enjoy the rest of your extended weekend guilt-free. Tidy the shed‚ tick! Take that old bookcase to the dump‚ tick! Practice your chest-pounding skills‚ okay, maybe that one’s just us…

 

What’s on the menu?

 

Life can get so hectic that sometimes, eating becomes a necessity rather than an indulgence. This is a travesty in our opinion! Why not plan ahead for the upcoming bank holiday by considering what treats you could have in store? The range of ideas out there these days are vast, and vloggers are making recipes even easier to achieve. For the more health-conscious, these goodies needn’t be high in naughtiness, as long as they are something you can look forward to! So start favouriting those online tutorials you usually scroll past longingly, sighing that you’d “love to try this out but never have the time…” Well, now you will!

 

Money-maker

 

Why not use your extra time to declutter your home, and at the same time, make some extra pocket money? Start gathering your preloved particulars ready for that bank holiday boot sale/auctioning website/free ads forum and watch your finances flourish. Perhaps your little monkeys have a mountain of toys they don’t play with anymore? Maybe your wardrobe could use a clear-out? One person’s trash is another person’s treasure, after all.

 

Plot in time with your loved ones

 

It may seem like an obvious one, but if your lives are half as busy as ours, you’ll know that time is precious and we must grab the opportunities to spend time with our family and friends as often as we can. Eat together, play together, take a walk in your local park‚ anything that brings you closer and allows you to spend some quality time with one another. So book in some bank holiday bonding time with your favourites today, before anyone else does!

 

For a truly great experience with your nearest and dearest, a trip to Go Ape could be just the ticket! There are just a few days left until the Early May Bank Holiday‚ so make sure you get in early by booking a session at one of our fantastic Tree Top Adventure courses. Make this year’s Spring Bank Holiday the most memorable yet!

Trees for Cities and Go Ape

Why is it that the Easter holidays and May Day Bank Holiday always seem to be over in a flash?

Well do not fear we have Spring Bank Holiday and the Summer Holidays just on the horizon ….

One day you’re all kicking back in the garden, enjoying a hot cross bun or two (or three); the next you’re sat at your desk, your kids are back at school, and you’re checking your calendar to count the weeks until the summer hols.

Easter and the early May Bank Holiday may be over, but the opportunity to bond with your family isn’t! Chances are, you all got up to some fun things during the break…well, there’s no reason why the fun should stop! In fact, having some fun activities in the pipeline will help to lessen the blow of being back in the office or the classroom.

Spring’s here and the evenings are getting lighter by the day so get out there and make the most of it!

Autumn Adventures at Go Ape

Maybe you weren’t able to hang out with your family that much this Easter. Well, even more reason to start planning some awesome adventures for you to bond over. With a little inspiration from the National Trust website, here are eight springtime family adventure ideas which do not need a holiday to take advantage of:

1. Take a trip to the forest, find the best climbing tree, and appreciate the view from way up high (just don’t forget to hold on tight).
2. Go for a stroll in the countryside, and see who can spot the most newborn baby lambs.
3. Be brave and take a dip in the sea hold hands and all run in together. The UK boasts some truly beautiful beaches; so after your swim, you can spend an afternoon building sandcastles and enjoying ice cream.
4. If it’s a windy day at the beach, bring a kite, and watch it dance and twirl in the breeze (before crash-landing into the sand).
5. Set off at dusk and spend an evening stargazing. Pick a spot with limited light pollution, and look out for shooting stars.
6. Gather together some paper and crayons and sketch some pictures of the springtime blooms. If you have flowers (like daffodils) growing in your garden, why not try pressing them into your artwork?
7. Ready, steady, slow! Ask a few snails if they wouldn’t mind taking part in a race. Placing a piece of lettuce at the finish line will encourage them to keep moving and in the right direction.
8. Unleash your inner Tarzans in the treetops at Go Ape! The ultimate in family bonding, a Tree Top Adventure will see you teaming up to tackle a whole host of sky-high obstacles. You’ll crawl through bridges, swing on stirrups, leap into nets and whizz through the air via zip wire!

With 31 locations across the UK, there’s bound to be a Go Ape near you. Book today, and give you and your family something to look forward to.
