Awesome walk around the tree tops. Would love to come back and do it at night. My only downer was the tourists rushing through it and freaking our 2 year old out when he was making his way across the bridges.More

That was a great walk around the tree on the bridge. It wasn't too high which suitable for my 8 years old and 3 years old. We also walked the track next to the bridge. Definitely will do this again.
