Have you swung through the trees with Go Ape before? Have you felt the high ropes in your hands, the wood beneath your feet and the wind in your face as you soared through the air via zip wire? Great, now, onto your next, forest-themed adventure!
This week under the spotlight: our self-balancing, all-terrain Segways, which transport tribespeople into the heart of the forest to enjoy an hour’s worth of exploration. As soon as you’ve had a quick training session from one of the Go Ape tribe at Segway base (where you’ll master controlling the machines), you’ll be free to roam!
Maybe you’ve been on a Segway before. They’re becoming more and more popular in big cities with tour groups. A designated guide takes the helm and you all roll around soaking up the sights, while learning more about the area.
City Segway tours are good fun, but believe us when we say, they are nothing compared to Segway-ing in the forest! You have absolute freedom. Forget congestion, pavements and pre-defined routes. You pick the path, you pick the pace, you sculpt your own adventure!
Expect simple paths and trickier trails, too. Expect to weave in and out of the tree trunks. Expect bumps, lumps and dips. Expect to see wildlife. Expect to breathe in fresh, crisp scents of the forest. Expect to laugh. Expect to make memories that’ll last forever!
We could go on (and on, and on) about how awesome our Forest Segway Experience is. But we realise that we’re obviously going to be a little biased and you may not end up trusting us fully. So, that’s why we’ve rounded up some fellow tribespeople to share their Segway experiences with us and you. We want you to hear about this unique adventure straight from the horse’s, no wait, monkey’s mouth!
Every other week throughout the summer, we’ll be uploading a new video where we quiz a tribe on their Go Ape adventure. The Adventure Tales will chronicle the emotions, thoughts and experiences of a tribe when they #SeizeAdventure with Go Ape. They’ll tell us truly how they felt whilst embarking on a Go Ape adventure and will hopefully inspire you to book a visit to the trees!
So, without further ado, let’s hear what three, lovely chaps had to say about their recent Forest Segway Experience …
