This is the story of Luke's recent visit to Zooropia, an arial assault course at Bristol Zoo Gardens. Especially designed for children aged 5 to 12, it's about 6 metres high, but very safe. Luke made short work of it, while I happily looked on from the safety of terra firma. not being a fan of heights! Luke really enjoyed it and is keen to go again. It's perfect for him, as it's a physical activity and he really enjoyed the fact he could do it on his own. This experience is brilliant for building confidence and self esteem and there were lots of adults taking part too!
|The first rule of aerial travel, always check your equipment, preferably by dangling a small boy from it!|
|Second rule of arial travel, always pay close attention to your instructor!|
|And off we go!|
|Are you sure you're not scared, son?|
|Rather you than me! *shudder*|
|Waving at Scaredy-Mum!|
And the arial amble ends with an epic dismount. Putting many of the adults to shame!
