Nestled in the treetops of Lough Key Forest & Activity Park, Ireland’s first forest aerial course provides a fun-filled, environmentally-friendly, adrenaline-pumping experience with activities ranging from 1 – 15 metres high. Enjoy hours of fun in the treetops experiencing the forest from a new and exciting perspective. Our trained instructors will provide help and encouragement all the way – everyone works to their own capabilities with no pressure to push on further than you are comfortable with – although we are sure you will surprise yourself!
Once fitted with a safety harness, you get to hurtle down a zip wire, even ride a BMX across a tree-top bridge, climb suspended ladders, swing into cargo nets, balance on a rope…and much, much more! For those who claim they are fearless, there is always the base jump. This exciting day out re-introduces adventure to participants, challenging and motivating them to reach the next level and getting a buzz from their achievements. No experience or skill is required, just a desire to have fun and be adventurous.
The course contains four individual circuits suitable for different heights, ages and abilities. Children from the age of seven upwards can participate, as long as they are at least one metre in height. Participants aged seven to seventeen must be supervised by an adult, either from the ground or in the trees.
Once fitted with our ultra-safe harness and briefed at the initiation circuit you are ready to venture into the tree canopy. With a kid’s circuit (green), a family circuit (white) and two progressively challenging circuits (blue and red) for teenagers and adults, providing hours of fun for a great family day out. Family and group discounts apply and it truly is an adventure packed with activities for all ages. Give yourself three to four hours to complete the full course as there are over 750m of ziplines and over 1.3km of activities. The course is all-weather – only high winds or extreme conditions will close the site.
This is also an ideal activity for groups, clubs, school tours, or as an addition to summer camps. All participating children will be provided with a certificate to prove that they were brave enough to climb it, swing it, surf it, and zip it with Zipit Forest Adventures.
