Manchester’s high ropes treetop adventure, ‘Treetop Nets’ located at Heaton Park, is taking the Easter hunt to a whole new level this year with an energetic aerial egg hunt in the high trees.
And it will be ditching chocolate eggs as prizes in favour of a greener alternative: ‘Treebombs’.
All visitors to Treetop Nets will be invited to take part in the Easter Treetop Trail, which runs from 1st – 19th April, where kids can run free on the giant aerial trampolines while searching for the 20 wooden Easter bunnies that are hidden up amongst the trees.
Once all 20 bunnies are found, children will be rewarded with a unique ‘Treebomb’ prize to take home, each containing hundreds of native Alder and Maple tree seeds.
This is all part of the popular treetop attraction’s bid to become a carbon neutral business and fight climate change.
Anyone participating at Treetop Nets can take part in the Easter hunt at no extra charge.
Treetop Nets takes climbing trees to a whole new level with trampolines, tunnels, slides and ball zones all suspended up to 60ft above ground in the beautiful woodland.
Each area is connected by aerial walkways all enclosed by high net walls, giving treetop adventurers the freedom to hop, swing and bounce their way round without harnesses.
“While chocolate is the more traditional Easter prize, we love using this as an opportunity to encourage kids to engage with the environment,” says Treetop Nets managing director, Mike Turner.
“After spending time up in the trees, we hope our visitors develop a strong appreciation for our planet’s beautiful woodlands and want to play a part in protecting and growing these spaces for future generations.
“It is estimated that it takes over 101 trees per person to offset your carbon output.
“Planting trees is an essential part of fighting climate change and we want to do our bit.
“Treebombs make mass planting even easier because each one contains hundreds of native tree seeds and they are designed to germinate quickly and be resilient to external factors.”
Launching on Friday 1st April and running everyday throughout the Easter break until 19th April, the activity is open to all participants of Treetop Nets at Heaton Park. Anyone over the age of three can take part, with full supervision required for under fives. Prebooking is strongly recommended – you can book Treetop Nets online at treetoptrek.co.uk.
