Zipit Forest Adventures

Zipit is a high wire forest adventure park with a difference. A place for young and old, where children can let their imagination run wild and where adults can embrace their inner child. You can climb high into the treetops, swing into cargo nets before zipping down one of our many ziplines. Come as a family, come on your own, or bring along a group. Children aged 7 to adults can enjoy up to 4 hours of excitement and adventure.

School tours

The adventure starts here! Get active, get connected and get outdoors. This is a great opportunity for students to enjoy an exhilarating and challenging outdoor activity in a natural setting, building confidence, teamwork and self-esteem. Students will feel a great sense of achievement as they conquer each activity, pushing their comfort zones. Big challenges or baby steps, our energetic instructors will encourage and motivate even the most nervous student, creating a lasting sense of achievement.

We welcome primary school children from age 9 upwards and secondary students, with circuits to suit all ages and levels of fitness. Activities last for 4 hours. Safety is always paramount.

What better way to bond with your students, than participating alongside them and facing your fears too! Free participation and free tea and coffee for all teachers. However, we do ask that at least one teacher remains on the ground at all times, providing active supervision.

We can take 150+ students in any one day, by staggering start times.
To avoid queues and ensure an enjoyable time for all, we start approximately 45 students at one time, with the next group following two hours after.
Please contact us for exact times, depending on size of group.

If you have children with special needs, please call us to discuss their needs. All children must be physically and mentally able to manage their own safety. SNA’s must supervise children under their care on a one to one basis.

Birthday Party Trips

If you are looking to organise a birthday party for any age, but want to try something different, why come to Zipit.

‘Fantastic time- Kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Celebrating daughters 16th birthday, she had so much fun with her friends- Thank you.’

‘The activities are great, but it's the staff that make the experience. They are brilliant with the kids- patient, kind and encouraging. They go the extra mile! Best birthday ever! That was amazing, so much fun!’

Hundreds of children have celebrated their birthdays at Zipit, but, it's not just for the kids. Zipit is a great way to mark those significant milestones, whether it's an official entry to adulthood, or a life begins at 40 to mention a few, let's not limit ourselves. So, whether you are a child or an adult, join us for a unique day that will stay with you forever.

A 30 - 45 minute instruction session is required, before you can move on through the circuits, so if you only have 2 hours to spend, you may only get one circuit completed. Allow the time to make your day so much more enjoyable.

With the activity lasting 3 - 4 hours, you will need to allow extra time for food / cake. We do not have café facilities on site at Zipit but you are welcome to bring along your own food / drink and use our tables and chairs at our outdoor decking area, outside the cabin. There are also picnic benches scattered around the parks.
