Treetop fun adds to Rasen's leisure mile

Market Rasen has long had a racecourse and a golf course to be proud of, now a new kid on the block is adding to the town's '˜entertainment and leisure mile'.

Wild Pines Park is giving people the opportunity to see things from a different angle.

Nestling on the edge of the woods in Linwood Warren, the Legsby Road site offers treetop fun for adults and children to enjoy.

The course was created earlier this year by Samuel Woodings, who has taken on the centre from the previous high-ropes enterprise.

He said: “I designed and built the course, with a bit of help from my dad, and am really pleased with the result.

“The course uses a safety system which means there is no unlocking and relocking of the harness from the guide rope to get to different levels; it just flows through.”

The course is suitable for anyone from the age of eight.

And if you are concerned the course may not be for you, there is a small assessment course, just a few feet off the ground, to show the sort of challenges ahead.

Samuel added: “Safety is, of course, the most important thing.

“We want people to have fun, but an instructor will be on hand at all times to help, and there are ‘escape routes’ along the way if needed.

“We don’t push anyone to do anything they don’t want to do.”

Such is the popularity of the site, a second course, including a 100 metre zip wire is currently under construction.

Samuel said: “We get all sorts of people using the course - families for birthday parties, school groups, individuals and friends, as well as businesses for team building.

“We also offer archery, a treasure hunt and a woodland walk.”
