Case Study: Criteo

Criteo corporate event at Battersea

Criteo explores Go Ape Battersea Parkcriteo logo corporate events

Our first urban adventure opened in Battersea Park in December 2015 and it’s still a strong favourite for team days out today. The Criteo Tribe took to the trees recently and shared with us their experience. They were looking for a “fun day out” and we’d like to think we had the answer.

The day itself…

Where – Battersea Park

When – Wednesday, September 14, 2016

What was included – 40 people in the trees followed by a 6pm BBQ in the gardens

Unedited feedback from Criteo

The team and I had a fun time going ape! The staff were friendly and helpful, the complex/courses were great, and we were very lucky with the weather. It was a fantastic experience, we all would love to do it again, and would strongly recommend to all. We had the BBQ package. Set up for this was great – we had an area reserved for us by the BBQ, great relaxed atmosphere, and food was delicious. The only drawback is no toilets within the Go Ape compound.*

*fear not adventurers, there are now multiple toilets inside the Go Ape cabin to use freely. 

Criteo gives Go Ape 5 bananas

We asked Criteo what they were hoping to get out of a trip to Go Ape, they told us “a fun day out”. We asked them (out of 10) how well they think we achieved this. They gave us a big fat 10!

We then asked Criteo to provide their honest opinion on every step of their Go Ape adventure. Their banana rating (out of 5) is detailed below:

Booking Process – 5 bananas
Quality Of Safety Brief – 5 bananas
Customer Service – 5 bananas
Value For Money – 5 bananas
Course Experience – 5 bananas
Welcome Upon Arrival – 5 bananas

Pink Parcel chooses to Go Ape

Pink Parcel Corporate Team Day Out

Pink Parcel takes to the trees

Pink Parcel LogoPink Parcel tests out our newest Go Ape adventure at Chessington World of Adventures. That’s our 30th site open in the UK to help teams come together and experience the great outdoors. Nothing brings a tribe together like getting back to nature, flying through the trees and wiping out at the bottom of zip wires.

We hear what Pink Parcel has to say about their team day out.

The day itself…

9th September 2016

  • Arrive at Chessington World of Adventures
  • Enjoy 2-3 hours of Tree Top Adventure
  • Feast on a Forest Picnic
  • A dedicated host to oversee the whole day and capture those monkey moments

Feedback from Pink Parcel

We had a good sandwich, crisps, chocolate, a fruit, a drink. What more could you want? We even had some team members request substitutions of sandwiches and we had no fuss

 A day out with your colleagues amongst the trees definitely pushes people outside their comfort zones and thus aids the creation of relationships between team members, ultimately forming long lasting bonds that will last forever.

From monthly treats to monkeys in trees, it’s safe to say the team at Pink Parcel had an epic time getting out of the office.

Why don’t you take a leaf from Pink Parcel’s slogan and make team days out “a monthly thing?”

Case study: Createful’s Big Day Out

Createful Go Ape Team Building Day

As you might be aware, we’re incredibly proud of our corporate team building days here at Go Ape.

We think there’s no better way for a group of workmates to bond, laugh and shake off their worries as they tackle the tightropes, obstacles and zip wires on one of our Tree Top Adventures – in fact, we’ve seen it happen countless times over the years!

Bournemouth-based creative agency Createful was one of the more recent companies to enjoy a well-earned day off work in the trees.

They wrote a brilliant blog piece on the experience – including some fab photos of lots of smiling faces! – so we thought we’d share some of their highlights with you!

Their annual summer team day took place this year at our site in Moors Valley Country Park, Dorset. It seems like they picked the right day for it as the sun was shining (although once you’re in the trees, you needn’t worry too much about the weather!).

After gliding through the forest on a convoy of Segways – they chose the more difficult route through the trees, go team! – with a Go Pro strapped to their creative director’s head, the colleagues stopped for a much-deserved ice-cream break before gearing themselves up for the Tree Top Adventure.

Their Go Pro may have run out of battery by this point, but the gang was still full of adrenaline and ready for their next challenge.

The great thing about our courses is that you can choose the ‘easy route’ or the more difficult route, meaning that each member of the Createful team was able to choose the level that felt right for them. And there’s no shame in choosing the ‘easy route’, it’s still quite a task for most people!

Having worked up a decent appetite in the trees, the Createful tribe enjoyed one final treat from their managing director: a BBQ lunch in one of our forest shelters, complete with a game of giant Jenga (which no BBQ should be without, obviously).

So, what did the tribe learn from having a day away from their screens? As their blog post mentions, they all agreed that they now want to own a Segway! But aside from that, the experience revealed that they are great working as a team.

In fact, client delivery manager Nicole writes: “I honestly think the only reason I got through the whole course was because of everyone’s help and encouragement. We really worked as a team.”

We’re so glad you enjoyed your day with us, Createful – perhaps we’ll see you again next year (or sooner?!).

Check out this awesome video from their day:

Do you wish to bring your tribe together as a team, and give them a day out they’ll never forget? With 30 Go Ape sites across the country (and counting!), no matter where your business is located you’re never too far from the opportunity to break out of the office and get your tribe up into the trees!

It’s great to hear from the tribe

A day swinging through the trees is a great way for any team to bond. Not just that it also strengthens areas of teamwork by building confidence, helping relationships and improving communication.

Here’s some proof…

Feedback from Crombie Wilkinson:

The day was brilliant!! Everyone really enjoyed themselves. The Go Ape staff were so helpful and lovely (Drew, Sarah and Chloe). Also, the treats on arrival and the BBQ were fantastic. A few members of staff have come up to me today to let me know how great they thought the BBQ was. There was plenty to eat and some even had seconds.

Our forest adventures are specially designed to help improve teamwork and collaboration among your tribe on one of our award-winning Tree Top Adventure courses. Giving your team a chance to let their hair down and enjoy some out-of-office time, and build trust and respect!
