Adrenaline Forest

Finally, it was holidays! A time to relax and spend time with my family! We went up to Mt. Maganui to stay with my Great Aunt for a night. While we were there, we climbed up to the top of the mountain, went for a swim in the hot pools, and also went to Adrenaline Forest!! Adrenaline Forest is located in between Rotorua and Tauranga. It is a high ropes course, with lots of different obstacles. Instead of having a long rope hooked onto your harness, with somebody down on the ground directing it, we had to completly rely on ourselves to be hooked in safely. We each had two "Carabinas" On our harness, that we had to hook onto the ropes around the course, as we moved along.
It started off easy, about a metre of the ground, but then it got higher- and harder! There was 6 levels in total, but we only made it to level 4, before we HAD to stop, because the challenges were really physical, and our arms were getting sore! Some of the obstacles included a flying fox, a 'rope bridge' where you had to walk across different pieces of looped rope, and a Tarzan jump. 
I had heaps of fun, it was awesome to try something new, and also have a go at something that is really scary!
