93 Year Old Raymond Tackles Go Ape Crathes Castle

Raymond Go Ape Crathes Castle

Raymond Zip WireWe love an inspirational tale here at Banana HQ. Every now and again we hear about something so fantastic, that we have to rise from our seats and applaud. Andy Murray’s Wimbledon win. Tim Peake’s historic space landing. That dog from Southend who can skateboard.

But a few weeks ago, we heard a story that really knocked us sideways.

When Louise Finlayson decided to celebrate her 21st birthday at Go Ape Crathes Castle, her grandpa Raymond was determined to not miss out on the fun.

Reminding us that age really is just a number, 93-year-old Raymond became the oldest ever Tribesman to take on a Go Ape course. The inspirational nonagenarian enjoyed every second of his visit, completing both the zip wire and the Tarzan swing.

Raymond said: “I don’t think age should ever be a barrier and I am always keen to try something new. Now that I have been to Go Ape and know what to expect I will be better prepared for my next visit, when I am planning on completing the rest of the course.”

Wow. Here’s to Raymond, and all the other adventurous silverbacks out there reminding us that there is no limit to the human spirit.

Adventure is available for apes of all ages over one metre tall. Book your next forest experience.

The forest floor is calling…

Forest Segway Go Ape

What’s that?

Can you hear it?

It’s the forest floor…calling your name!

Think back to the last time you visited a forest what did you do? Did you hit some mountain bike trails with your buds? Did you build a den with your kids? Did you take a leisurely stroll through the trees, soaking up the sights, sounds and smells of your surroundings?

The forest is a fantastic place to be. Yes, we’re biased, but we love nothing more than to escape to a woody retreat. Forests are natural sanctuaries; they provide a peaceful place to take some time out from our hectic lives and just be.

Modern-day life moves fast, but we all need to slow down every once in a while. And there’s really no better place to take it easy than in the depths of the forest, where the air is clean and crisp and there isn’t an electric socket in sight!

So, now that we’ve sold a trip to the forest to you, here’s another suggestion: when you visit, why not explore the wonders of the woodland in a brand new way? Leave your bike at home, give your legs a rest, and instead hop aboard one of our all-terrain Segways!

The latest in green technology, our electric Segways will take you off the beaten track for an hour’s worth of exploration with your tribe. After a quick how-to from one of us, you’ll be free to roam and immerse yourself in the forest.Go Ape Segway Experience

You’ll find yourself navigating everything from simple, flat paths to more testing, rugged trials. You’ll skilfully weave yourself in and out of the tree trunks. You’ll climb hills and descend them. You’ll feel the crunch when you roll over bracken and twigs, and hear the slush when you roll through mud.

Now, if you’re a Segway newbie, it’ll take you a few minutes to get to grips with the machine. It could feel a little strange to begin with, but you’ll soon get into the swing or shall we say, roll? of things. You’ll quickly master the art of balance; and when we’re 100% certain that you have, we’ll send you on your way!

A Go Ape Forest Segway Experience costs just £35 and is available at select courses across the UK. Riders need to be at least 10 years old and a minimum of 7 stone. Make sure you wear flat, closed-toe shoes for your adventure, and be sure to pack some gloves if it’s chilly!

The forest is calling your name…come on down and cruise its floors!
