YOU are challenged to walk in the sky now that two aerial high rope courses have opened locally.

Popular attraction Go Ape will open its brand new course at Itchen Valley Country Park near Eastleigh tomorrow. And on Southsea seafront, Pier Pressure has been officially unveiled.

At Go Ape, experience a liberating sense of freedom as you swing through the forest on zip wires, cross wooden walkways and climb treetop ladders while safely attached to a harness. The Itchen Valley course is the highest in the south. See, for details.

Pier Pressure is the UK’s first double decker urban extreme aerial high ropes challenge course, suitable for the whole family. There are over 28 different elements to explore. Log on to, for more.
