I went to a place called "Forest Adventure" in Odawara with my family during Golden Week. Forest Adventure is an athletic park in the forest. The park's attractions are courses that use the park's trees. We climbed up one tree and then moved to another tree using various methods. Each course is made up of several trees that have a rope bridge, a swing, a tunnel, and a zip line connecting to the next tree. We have to wear a harness when we climb the trees in case we fall. I am connected to a harness throughout the course from the time my feet leave the ground until I come back down. It is safe, but you must be over 110cm tall, and children must be at least elementary school age. The reason is that they have to be able to hook themselves up to the harness. I was a big chicken, but I had a lot of fun with my kids! Usually kids are the ones who are scared, but my kids were very brave.
It was a little expensive; \3500 for adults, and \2500 for kids. There are 9 courses, and when you finish you have to leave. Usually it takes 2 or 3 hours. If you are a big chicken like me, then you go slow, and it will take 3 or 4 hours. We left a little early to avoid the traffic.
It was so much fun, and it made us strong!

Good job Ms. Y! I thought it sounds like fun. She must be very brave! I think I want to try it one day. How about you? What do you think? Have you ever had an experience like this? コメントを残して下さい。
