This past week,my family headed up to a cottage for a week stay! We found lots of fun things to do for the adults & the kids.
One of my favourite was Tree Trekking , We went to the Huntstville Location. Treetop Trekking Huntsville has 7 exciting courses with over 55 innovative challenge games like balance cables, log bridges and Tarzan swings. Courses vary in difficulty so there is something for everyone. Plus get your adrenaline pumping on 12 zip lines spread out over the courses, where you will reach speeds of up to 45 km/h!
Barrie Park has a course for children,plus a Tree Hugging. Would love to try that another time!
Booking was easy to do just had to call in.The staff was friendly & helpful, It was recommened to wear pants & bring buy spray & lots of water/snacks. When we arrived everyone was in shorts….. I wish we had worn shorts it was HOT out!
The day of we arrrived half hour before our time, opps they thought we should have been there the day before , Luckly they where able to fit us in!
Then time to get into our rock climbing type harness & helmet on Then onto our orientation session.
Headed up to area to do our oreintaion. I was so worried about being only one to not be able to do it.But no worries we all completed it! I must say our guide her name was Nicole very nice & helpful! Oriention done off we head to our first course! Each course has several “games” then a zipline at end.I will honest some of the games kicked my butt LOL. The games consistanted of obstacles high up in the trees like suspended bridges, Tarzan swings, balance logs, cables traverses!
Around the 3 course I began to get tired, but I had another course to get through before I could do Butterfly(more about that later). Luckily a guide who was sitting on ground helping/watching started to give me some advise where to step etc, He was awesome & gave me the push to finsih. I just kept telling meself one step at a time LOL .
Butterfly course was awesome this course has 7 ziplines back to back with the last one ending back on the ground! This was AWESOME, I really enjoyed this course! I was pretty pround of myself I did not fall off or get stuck.
The last course was Tarazan Swing..I seen this on FB page & was exciting to try! For this one you sit on the edge & take deep breath before giving the thumbs-up to be tugged off the platform. Spread your wings as you fall 3 stories before swinging back up on a huge pendulum. Grab onto the cargo net to finish off your ride!
I almost did not do this…I was getting really sore & tired..But fiqured come all this way. There was a back way to come and aviod the games before swing..But I went for it & did it all!
This was a BLAST,this was my idea & I am so excited we did this. I cant wait to try this again,I really want to take my kids to the Barrie Location as has a kids course which all the kids could do plus the Tree Hugging(basiclly Rocking climbing outside it looks like)
I would do this again in a heart beat…..only next time i would remeber to bring or buy gloves.My hands had blisters and very sore!
