From the refreshing scent of the morning dew to the warmth of dappled sunshine, the forest is our happy place! Whether we’re whizzing through the trees on a fast and furious zip wire, leisurely swinging our way through the high ropes, or heading off-road on a self-balancing Segway, we never fail to be swept away by the wonder of nature all around us. And that’s just one of the things our #SeizeAdventure summer campaign is all about!
Wonder at the world
You see, here at Banana HQ, we believe that one of the secrets to keeping a tribe happy is to ensure they never lose their sense of wonder. Wonder keeps you curious, driving you forward to create new and long-lasting memories. It wakes you up to the world around you, helps you take those first tentative steps out of your comfort zone, and can open you up to things you never thought you would enjoy or excel at.
However, waking your sense of wonder is easier said than done! Sometimes we can all be guilty of letting our sense of wonder fall asleep as we do the same old things in the same routine, but that’s not what life’s all about!
Every day, as we gain more members of our trusty extended tribe and watch more cheeky monkeys than ever before try their hands at something new, we can see that wonder begin to wake up inside them. We’ve seen timid souls start the day feeling nervous of our Tree Top Adventure, and end it hollering, Tarzan-style, as they leap from the highest platform! We’ve seen folk start a session looking like they’d rather be at home, safe and warm with the TV on and the blinds down, and end it with huge smiles on their faces, ready to book their next adventure with the great outdoors!
Whilst the vast range of activities we offer at Go Ape, spanning 31 locations across the UK, play a substantial role in waking up that sense of wonder, we believe that the real stars of the show are the beautiful locations themselves.
#SeizeAdventure with Go Ape
There is nothing more wondrous than the stunning scenery you can find all over the UK. From the heights of Glentress Forest, near Edinburgh, to the glorious Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire, you can expect more sumptuous landscapes, tree life and natural splendour than you can shake a banana at. Believe us we’ve tried!
We’ve even managed to capture a snippet of some of the natural highlights that awaken our wonder on a daily basis. From the golden glow of first light and the sweet sounds of the dawn chorus, to the glitter of starlight and the peeping toms of the forest take a peek at our #SeizeAdventure video to glimpse the wonder of our enchanting locations.
