- Safety equipment
All participants wear a fitted harness (complete with Clic-it 'smart belay system' and pulley) and a helmet. Your harness and carabiners keep you attached to the safety system at all times, this means that if you slip, your harness will catch you to prevent a fall.
- Safety training
Every participant must complete a brief safety training session before starting the courses. This involves a demonstration introducing participants to the equipment and safety system. Once you have practised, and the instructor is confident that you are ready to go, you will continue around the courses on your own.
One of the great things about Tree Adventures is that you can make your way around the courses independently and be confident knowing that instructors patrolling from the ground are there to offer quick assistance if you happen to get stuck or wish to come down. Our supervising instructors are kitted out with specialist equipment and fully trained to perform rescues.
All climbers under 16 years must be directly supervised by an adult at all times. Supervision ratios are as follows:
Climbers 5 and 6 years 1 participating adult for every 2 children Climbers 7 to 12 years 1 adult (participation may be required) for every 6 children Climbers 13 to 15 years 1 adult (participation not required) for every 8 children Climbers 16 years and over Direct supervision not required
- Deeply rooted and well established activity
The forest adventure park concept was first conceived in France and has boomed in recent years with over 500 parks throughout France, and increasing popularity worldwide. Woodhill’s Tree Adventure Park is the brainchild of six French enthusiasts with a wealth of experience working in and building parks throughout France. They researched forests worldwide in the hunt for a new and interesting place to introduce the forest adventure concept and they finally chose the Woodhill Forest in New Zealand for its natural beauty and the adventurous nature of Kiwi culture. Tree Adventures was the first adventure park of its kind to open in New Zealand, and has been operating since December 2004.
- A special place for everyone
Tree Adventures is an environmentally friendly park built with the long-term health of the forest in mind. A professional arborist carefully selected the trees on which to build, and ongoing assessments monitor their structural integrity and health. Our structures are designed to avoid damaging the trees and allow them to continue growing naturally.
Tree Adventures staff monitor the courses daily and perform thorough checks on a regular basis. A specialist independent company also performs an annual course audit to ensure safety.
