In the wires
Unfortunately I can see some kiddies getting hurt, or is this made for adults.
All kids want is a slide, swings and roundabout. Thats all.
This is opposite the crazy golf,high ropes adventure course,looks good at the moment but in a year or two when the timber is all green and slimy ,lets say hope they dont closed Wigan A&E.
A vandals paradise and looks dangerous, sorry Ron, but that's my gut feeling.
Is it free? Is there a fee to pay, how much? Can't see it surviving if it's expensive.
Nice clear picture shows it off well.
More OTT health and safety, and what use is a hard hat up on a rope in a tree?, you'd think they were on a building site. Just H&S brainwashing with lackof common sense. Kids years ago were climbing up trees and sliding down slides with just gravel or stones below not rubber matts everywhere. Won't be long til they have foam around the metal bars like a lot of scaffolding are like these days.
I doubt it'll be free. Nothings free these days, there's always money to be made even if it'd through selling personal information.
What's the point of this "gladiator" type of climbing. Looks very dangerous to me.
Things now are built for short term, quick fix, like microwave cooking. As kids we found our own enjoyment , we didn't need the council to provide it.
Its only free for the posh folk who book an executive nights stay with dinner in the new hotel.
The rest of you will have to pay.
These types of High Ropes are quite popular over the country. Go Ape is the best known name. See here for the Rivington one: https://goape.co.uk/days-out/rivington
£25 to £33 a go.
There is such a thing as an inverted snob, Mick. Get your facts right before you speak.
