I myself am the outdoor type. I would rather go for a round of paintball to watching a movie, and it is to my delight that I found Forest Adventure.

A high obstacle challenge activity, I originally presumed that it is of an intermediate difficulty. To my surprise, I saw groups of children climbing trees as well - albeit that of a lower height - as well as adults. What really stood out to me was the service. Perhaps it was just that one instructor, but he made the effort to really talk and guide each and every one of us there. In addition, he made us chuckle despite our nervousness, and we just knew we were safe in their hands.

Located at Bedok, it may be a little far for those living in the west. But hey, zip-lining, why not?

Love climbing trees? What a pity there aren’t any in Singapore. Or are there?

Since trees these days are very inconvenient to climb. Forest Adventure would be your best alternative. Climbing rope ladders, crossing ropes, zipping across the reservoir. What could be more fun? The whole treetop journey would take about one and a half hours, depending on your speed. Slow and scared of heights? No problem, take your time. Fast and courageous? Go ahead and complete the course as fast as you can. No matter who you are, how old you are, what your phobias are, this course is just suited to your needs.

For those who are worried about safety, may your mind be at peace. You are connected to secure ropes all of the time. However, you are responsible for your own safety. If you do not remember to hook yourself to the ropes, it is your own fault. Twice, I forgot to do so, and fortunately, the person behind me reminded me to do so. Be sure to look out for each other.

What I really like about this is the zip lining . Nothing beats the feeling of zooming from a high place, feeling the wind on your face, feeling the rush of adrenaline. It is an experience that is not easily forgotten. Especially the one across the reservoir. The body of water just gets bigger, and bigger, until you just swoop across the water. Oh so close, but not touching. Remember to dismount properly though, if not you might be left hanging in the air just above the water. I can imagine how scary that will be.

If you want fun with your family, go for an amazing treetop journey at Forest Adventure.

Having been to a park in Malaysia with the same nature, I was thrilled to see for myself whether Forest Adventure can offer me and my group of friends something more. The one thing I noticed right off the bat was the superior service quality. The instructors were outgoing and were always encouraging us to conquer our fears and to take the leap on one of the giant ziplines. This was really good because it kept the whole activity at a very fun pace for all of us.

The other thing that struck me was the ease of access Forest Adventure had towards younger children. By allowing them to explore their own abilities, they would not only have fun but also be able to build their self-confidence. Definitely a place I would return to with my kids in the future.

Except with no nut-gathering ability.

Regrettably really if not I can set up my own mini-mart.

Irrelevant nonsense aside, I found my way here on a TSL invite and we had a very informative introductory session, where the trainer taught us about the hooks on our belt and how to attach/ detach onto the ropes that span across the whole course.

Demonstrations later, we were off to the climbing course!

The course itself was a little tiring but it was exceedingly fun to be on-top of trees, feeling like a squirrel and scurrying my way through the precarious bridges and at one point I forgot to attach myself onto the accompanying rope and felt a little woozy and almost slipped off.

So please do not pull another Nicole and make sure you're attached at all times.

My favourite part was the zipline gliding and a freefall at the end. It was the single, most adrenaline-rushing event of the day and I was supposed to scream thesmartlocal or something but my voice got stuck hahaha.

Definitely coming back.

What a lovely surprise this place was. I had no idea that hidden amongst the trees at Bedok Reservoir there would be an adventure park filled with rope ladders, cable walk ways, mini mega zips across water, tree hideouts, san pits: all the ingredients of fun in the forest with an emphasis on climbing, skimming, zipping and generally getting out an doing something.

Especially good for kids, but still great fun for those of us of more advance years, this is a place that offers real enjoyment. In a day and age when fun is a hand held IT device, to use your hands to do something in the outdoors is rare.

I had my orientation at Forest Adventure. It resulted in me going home with aching arms and legs. There are 4 stages at the tree tops. Once you start, there's no turning back. My breathe quickened and heart beat raced as i look down from the height. They geared us in helmets and a harness.

As each stage goes, it gets harder. Swinging from one rope to another, walking on tight ropes which sways when the winds blows, walking on shaky small wood tiles summaries the adventure on Forest adventure. I was totally unprepared for such challenging task as i thought we would be playing ice breaker games. Although we had a choice if we would want to undertake the daunting task, i chose to challenge myself. At the end of the course, although i was still shaking, i had an immense feeling of satisfaction.

Definitely a must try for people who love heights and a challenge.

I was at Forest Adventure recently to scout for a suitable venue for a company outing. I thought it would be fun for my colleagues to have some adventures. We worked normal office work and I believed most of my colleagues seldom go out and experience nature, so this would be a different company outing.

Some of us may have the experience of climbing trees when we were younger but some of my colleagues were really young so I considered them to be from the generation that was deprived of some of our natural fun. I did not really try the obstacles but seeing the setup and observing those people already on the obstacles, I had already started to imagine the fun that the company would be having if my proposal to have the company outing here got through.

We were here on a TSL complimentary invitation and the 5 of us thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I remember our instructor telling us... even people in Bedok do not know about Forest Adventure, which is such a shame!

I am not the bravest when it comes to heights, but to see the fellow writers being so fearless about it, i really had no choice! You'd expect the instructors to baby sit you all the way but they don't. Once you pass the initial safety course, you are all on your own. That's how much faith they place in their system. And its really quite straight forward. At any one time you are attached to two saftey wires.

A tip to feel more secure: you can always lean your weight on the harness just before you're about to go off. That might help to psychologically overcome some fear. It really looks super high when you're up there in the trees so its normal for everyone to hesitate a bit. At the end of stage 4, all 5 of us did the crazy "Tarzan Jump" which has a 2 second free fall. Wait to you see our video feature hahaha!!

Would like to see them mix things up or add in new obstacles to warrant a repeat visit. But its definitely a place I will recommend people to give a try. I personally think it will make a super fun dating activity for couples on maybe the 3rd date onwards and a it will make great place for companies and team building exercises.

I came here once as part of a bonding session with a group of people. Initially, I was really scared as the sight of all the obstacles perched on the tall trees and the super long zip line across the lake made me cringe.

I was never one to be scared of adventure, but I had a fear of height.

Luckily, I had my friends, behind and infront of me. We waited for each other at every obstacle and this made me feel more secure and safe. In the middle of the whole course, I found it extremely fun and exhilarating. It was also a good bonding session with my friends, and the good is that people of all ages can participate! I will definitely return one day, to conquer the obstacles once again!

I had the chance to go experience Forest Adventure thanks to some school event that brought some of us there to try it out. What I was expecting was just some lame course, that would be quite easy to get by and we would be done in a while as I was rather bum-ed having to go through with it. To my surprise, the experience was a rather pleasant and fun one that I would definitely not mind trying again.

When I first arrived at the site, there were high obstacles and many other climbing associated tasks to be accomplished. As I had previous camp facilitator training, I thought that such things would be a piece of cake. However, it was more challenging than expected and I had some difficulty trying to get past some of the obstacles myself. The course is indeed well rounded and well organised, to maximize an individual's potential and to test each and everyone's ability and determination. I would also safely say that it is a good test as to self-reflection and self evaluation, to test one's ability and capabilities against the course.

I recall my trip to forest adventure was a few years back, probably when I was still in primary school. I have always liked climbing around and about, so when I got to experience climbing ladders and nets amidst the trees, I could still remember the adrenaline pumping through me.

The best part was zipping through the flying fox over the Bedok Reservoir with the sun rays beating on my face. It took literally a leap of confidence to start the zip, but once you are "flying" through, you will be able to sit back and relax, taking in the scenery and lush evergreen landscape, not forgetting the glistening water in the reservoirs.

However, do remember to put on plenty of sunscreen and insect repellents as it is an outdoor facility. Sweating is unavoidable so don't forget to hydrate often. It is really a fun activity for the entire family to do together.
