The TreeZone Aviemore Courses
Starting at the TreeZone Fortress, The TreeCreeper negotiates twelve obstacles up to five metres off the ground. This course is suitable for those aged at least seven years old and 1.1m tall. No previous experience is required.
Venture out along the Fortress Gangplank, teeter across the Postman’s Walk, jump across the Big Gap, fly down the Zip Wire, wobble over the Indiana Jones Bridge and scramble over the Mosquito Net.
Check around for Red Squirrels in the trees then head through the Floating Barrel, swing between the Hanging Islands and across the Organ Pipes. Catch your breath along the Burma Bridge, before testing yourself on the Balance Beam and the Hanging Vines on your way back to the Fortress.
Those under 1.3m tall can have another shot along the TreeCreeper while the bigger and braver amongst us can graduate to the Buzzard Course.
Some interesting facts about the Aviemore Treecreeper:
- Number of obstacles: 12
- Total length: 84 metres

The Buzzard is the TreeCreeper’s big bad brother and rising to an airy fifteen metres high, twenty two challenges will test your bravery as well as your ability.
Bigger spans, wobblier bridges, wider gaps and a hanging zip wire will all challenge you as you climb steadily higher. With names like the Pogo Sticks, Pig Tails, Church Organ and Skipping Ropes don’t let the Buzzard’s defences lull you into a false sense of security. As you climb onwards and upwards, the tests get meaner until you’re just one tightrope walk away from the Buzzard’s Nest.
But that’s not all! The best way back down to the ground is via the exhilarating one hundred metre long Buzzard Zip Wire.
