We are always looking for new outdoor activities. As a family we love adventures, trying new things and being outside whatever the weather. So when we got an invite to visit Treetop Manchester this adventure activity in the North West sounded perfect for us. However our visit to tree top nets fell on a day when the weather was particularly bad I was keen to find out can you go to Treetop Nets in the rain and still have a good time?
What is Treetop Nets?
It is an area within Treetops Trek. Treetops Trek is an amazing aerial adventure where you can balance and zip wire through the trees. It is full of trampolines, tunnels, walkways and slides all made from nets and suspended 40 ft off the ground weaving throughout the trees. It is a great adventure activity for everyone. There are three different sites in the UK, Manchester, The Lake District and Yorkshire. We were lucky enough to visit the Manchester site.
Can you go to Treetop Nets in the rain.
Can you visit treetop nets in the rain, the heavy rain? The answer is of course you can yes. As long as you dress accordingly for the rain it is fine. Children don’t care about getting wet it is just us grown ups! The good thing about visiting Treetop Nets in the rain is that it was empty. We had pretty much the whole place themselves. They ran round the nets, bouncing on the trampolines, coming down the fast slides in their sacks giggling and squealing with delight. It is surrounded by 3 foot of netted wall making it completely safe. I didn’t need to worry about them falling and they didn’t even require any harness or safety equipment.
You are allocated a hour slot to play and run around. I actually thought this would be enough however my girls would have happily stayed for longer even in the rain!
Is Treetop Nets suitable for toddlers?
Treetop nets is not really suitable for toddlers at the weekends. This was the only negative elements about Treetop nets as my little boy is only 2 so he is too young to go on. The minimum age is 3. This is such a shame as he would have loved it. However they do offer toddler sessions during term time throughout the week. There is a huge play park situated right next to Treetop net so babies and toddlers can play there.
Is there a cafe at Treetops Nets Manchester?
Despite the rain we had a great time. Treetops is in Heaton Park so you can spend a full day there. Playing on the nets and the zipwires. Followed by a play in the park rounded up by some tea and cake in the nearby garden centre.
Is there anywhere to park at Treetops Nets Manchester?
There is parking available at Treetop Nets Manchester but you do have to pay for parking. It is very reasonable and you can pay by card.
The rain at Treetop Nets certainly didn’t dampen our spirits.
We visited Treetops Manchester free of charge in exchange for a honest review.
