The Treetop Adventure Park in the Botanical Gardens in Bali gave us several hours of thrills and excitement. There are 7 adventure circuits within the trees from between 2 – 20 meters high. In total there are 72 challenges including Suspended Bridges, Spider Nets, Tarzan Jumps, Flying-Fox, Flying Swings, and many more fun challenges. All of the circuit platforms are held in place using an innovative compression system to protect trees from any damage and all of the cables are protected from cutting into the trees.
Once we arrived, we were kitted up in the safety harnesses with pulley and carabiners. We then completed the training circuit where all of us learned how to work the safety harness (1 of the 2 carabiners must always be attached to the guide wires) and how to work the pulleys for the flying fox zip lines.
We started on the Squirrel Yellow Circuit and Isabelle was straight up and taking the lead. She was so confident and having so much fun doing it! She was a little scared at some points but managed to keep going. Oliver, who always wants to do everything that Isabelle does, kept up with us all on everything!
Once we had finished the Yellow Circuit, we went on to do the Green and Orange Circuits. My heart was thumping on the Orange Circuit, and I was not sure that I was going to be able to finish…… (I used to be such a dare devil, but the older I get, the more I do not like heights). However, seeing that Isabelle and Oliver had both finished this round, I could not let them see me wimp out!
After we had completed the 3 circuits that the kids could do, they wanted to start all over again! So, we went round again, but this time Oliver went first.
