PW says “Have done this with one child who is autistic and other who has dyspraxia. Staff very helpful and friendly. They did feel rushed if other children came up behind as they can make the bridges etc wobble. Which they found unsettling. There are lower and higher ropes to go on. I would recommend the lower to start with as it is quieter and speak to staff about having extra time if needed. My two now love going and have been back a few times. Great for confidence building.”

MT says “We did it with a child with CP – we rang first for a chat and then went along and they were brilliant. A lady accompanied him around the course and helped him when needed. We did the junior one”
