Days Out: Treetop Nets, Lightwater Valley, Ripon

treetop netsWith giant trampolines, walkways, slides and a ball pool, all suspended between trees up to 50ft off the ground, there’s no better place to unleash your inner child and burn off some excess energy. The brand new attraction – which is a first for Yorkshire – has just opened its doors and offers visitors the chance to run, bound, tumble and slide on 2,000 square metres of giant trampolines, walkways and slides. If that’s not enough, it’s also home to the world’s longest aerial net walkway, a tree house, and a 50ft high crow’s nest – the perfect place to take a breather and admire the scenery. Unlike traditional high ropes courses, visitors are completely surrounded by 3m high walls of netting which means you’re always safe and are free to roam wherever you please. Suitable for everyone aged three and above, Treetop Nets is the brainchild of one of the world’s best sailors and rope experts, inventor Cedric Chauvaud. Chauvaud came up with the concept after designing a series of rope bridges and nets for researchers in the Amazon rainforest, gaining them safe access to the high canopy, without causing damage. This early concept has now evolved into a unique treetop adventure which has all the makings of a fantastic family day out.
