PEOPLE have been going ape in Haldon Forest for six years and there are no signs of that enthusiasm for treetop antics abating.
Centre manager Max Crouch has worked at the site since it opened and said this summer had been one of the busiest he had seen, with plenty of people prepared to pay the £30 it costs for a trip around the course.
"It's been going well," he said, "and we're looking at expanding.
"We're getting a junior course to give smaller kids more to do."
And he said he was looking forward to that.
Having worked as a multi-activity instructor in Brighton he said he enjoyed working at Go Ape, where people are given the chance to go into the treetops on their own.
"It's not as hands-on as I was used to," he said, "but that's refreshing.
"We empower people to go out and have a good time. We see people who've never been up a loft ladder before and when they get down they feel like they've achieved something.
"Lots of people are shocked they can do it and I love that. Seeing people with fears of heights trying to test themselves is a feel good thing."
