Climbing courses at different altitudes
The tree climbing courses differ in height. For small children there is a trail just above the ground at a height of half a meter. Even though they are not very high above the ground, these children are obviously also attached to the cable with a safety vest. For older children, there are slightly higher courses with more challenges. Adults can go on the highest courses; these go along the tops of the trees and are at a decent altitude. Due to the height, you can enjoy beautiful views along the way.
Climbing in the night
At Funforest you can also go climbing at night. This is a very special experience. The bright moon can guide you a tiny bit, but you will mostly have to rely on your gut instinct. It is very exciting to go by ziplines, Due to the darkness you won’t be able to see the end of the course. You will hear all kinds of sounds around you which you wouldn’t usually hear during the day. Especially for teenagers and adults this is a great adventure.
