By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 7 Nov 2017

North Lincolnshire's first ever Go Ape adventure park, which is being constructed at Normanby Hall Country Park, is on track to open in time for next year's Easter holidays.

Work is already taking shape on the Tree Top Adventure course, with several of the obstacles now visible in the trees.

There will be Tree Top Adventure and three loop Tree Top Junior courses.

Activities include an Amazon Bridge, Grandpa’s Crossing, Tibetan Bridge and a large Tarzan Swing to test your nerves at the last crossing. Not forgetting five zip lines on the Tree Top Adventure.

For the younger adventurers, they will have the choice of 17 crossings on the Tree Top Junior course and will go up to 5.25 metres at the highest point.

North Lincolnshire Council bosses say Go Ape will add to Normanby Hall Country Park's appeal to visitors and expect it to attract thousands of people across the region. It is expected to create 26 jobs.

A new Normanby Hall Country Park membership scheme will also be available in the new year which will reflect the new additions to the attraction.

Go Ape is located within the Beech Wood at Normanby Hall, adjacent to the Deer Park nestled towards at the end of the woodland.

Councillor Carl Sherwood, North Lincolnshire Council's cabinet member for community wellbeing, said: "It is brilliant to see progress being made on Go Ape at Normanby Hall Country Park.

"Go Ape is a top tourist attraction that will attract thousands of visitors to North Lincolnshire. It is a major investment that will help put North Lincolnshire on the map as a place to visit.

"Normanby Hall is set in beautiful surroundings and provides the perfect location for the tree top adventure courses. It is the perfect addition to what is already on offer at Normanby Hall Country Park. It will be a fantastic day out for all the family.

"We are set to invest £1 million in Normanby Hall Country Park to improve the overall experience including putting on open air concerts, improving the café and putting on more activities for families. We are also looking to secure other partners to bring even more to this top tourist attraction."
