Whizzing along zip wires and walking along high ropes will see you ‘going ape’ as you tackle high-level platforms, plank bridges, walkways and a whole world of aerial challenges that are perched way up above the ground. Time to test your mettle in the treetops and forests of the UK!

A sense of adventure is essential, as you could come face to face with some pretty scary obstacles. With these sort of high rope courses, safety is of major importance, so you will be kitted out with all the gear including harnesses and helmet. A ground briefing will tell you all you need to know about the challenge and once you set off, the staff are with you every step of the way.

Explore the world sky-high above the ground on a high ropes course

Run the gauntlet on zip wires and move deftly along the high ropes with these experiences that'll see you tackling aerial challenges at adventure parks around the country. It's all about ropes, cords and cables as you clamber aloft the platforms and psych yourself up to go whooshing along the zip wires in what we consider to be one very thrilling outdoor activity. You just can't beat a high rope course for that adrenaline rush!

Of course, safety is paramount at every high ropes course centre, so you will be pleased to hear all have been designed and built by experts in the construction of rope courses in the UK. All are professionally run venues with qualified instructors to host the session.

Expert instructors will encourage you during your high ropes challenge

Oh and in case you were wondering, instructors are all very patient, as you can see in this video of our Harrogate high ropes centre. Many of us feel a bit of trepidation kicking in when we're in the lofty heights of the trees waiting to start a high rope course, so they'll encourage you and help you to 'go for it' and take the plunge so you can really enjoy your course amongst the flore and fauna.

Before you even take one step on a decidedly challenging high ropes course, a briefing will be carried out on the ground and you will be kitted out in all the gear. Rope courses require climbing-style harnesses, cords to clip on to the ropes, with lines and lanyards used as the secondary safety harness. You'll finish off your new tarzan look with a helmet. Now you're ready to tackle the aerial obstacles on your chosen high rope course that are sure to get your heart pumping.

High ropes routes for all levels of ability

And don't worry if the dares seem just a bit too much for you, most high rope courses are built in stages to be suitable for all abilities and ages. You'll generally start off on the lower, less taxing trails, gradually progressing to higher, more difficult high rope routes as your confidence builds throughout the session.

As well as the traditional high ropes, many of the outdoor centres also offer extra activities that you can try. We’re talking big jumps onto airbags, descender drops (a bit like a bungee) and even zip lines that whizz right over the tops of the Eden Project domes or across Scottish valleys.

If you are looking for a family day out in the country, a high ropes course might be just the thing, as the minimum age can be as young as seven years old - as long as Mum and Dad are aerial daredevils! So if you have a mini jungle warrior with energy to burn up who will love aping it up in the trees, a session on a high rope or zip wire course is sure to wear them out.
