It’s something our Grannies instil in us from an early age: “There’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing!” And how right they are.
We love the changing seasons here at Go Ape – in our book, it’s one of the best things about living in the UK: the summer sun speckling the forest floor; the burnt orange leaves of autumn; the crisp chill in the air around this time of year… we love it!
“Embrace the elements!” is what we say – and that’s exactly what our favourite all-weather Go Apers have done. Life would be boring if the weatherman told us the same old thing day in, day out – we like to be kept on our toes. So, here are a few members of the Go Ape tribe showing us how it’s done. Grab your camera and Instagram your own all-weather snaps, tagging Go Ape! #nofilterneeded.
First up, we’ve got a member of our tribe riding the storm on one of our Forest Segways. We can’t get enough of the colours in this picture – the greens and yellows of the surrounding grass, trees and plants, and the midnight blue of the gloomy sky, only adding to the dramatic effect. With a Go Ape Segway experience, you’ll be tackling all types of terrain, so don’t forget to layer up and wear clothes you don’t mind getting a little grubby – that way, you can confidently splash through a puddle or two!
Still on Segways, but this time on a misty, winter’s day, are these fab all-weather Go Apers, showing that you need to get your Segway fix before we go into hibernation-mode. Exploring the forest floor on two wheels really is the ultimate wet-weather activity – as long as you follow Granny’s advice and come prepared! A bit of sludge never hurt anyone!
Next up, we’ve got this beautiful pic, taken by Perri McGovern who kindly allowed us to share it on our Instagram page. You couldn’t really get more autumnal than this – just look at the gorgeous colours of those leaves! And now imagine being up there in the trees, surrounded by them! Bliss.
And finally, some concrete proof that our tribe likes to monkey around on a daily basis: a replica of the Gene Kelly scene from Singin’ in the Rain – except this time, they’re “Swingin’” in the rain… gettit? Framed by the leafy hideout at Go Ape Cannock, they really went all-out for this pic!
So, what are you waiting for? Book your Go Ape experience, wrap up in the appropriate gear, grab your tribe and join us for a guaranteed fun-filled few hours – come rain or shine!
