Deaf News: Deaf group refused entry to Go Ape adventure park

Posted on August 22, 2016

Extract from the Peeblesshire News:

A BIRTHDAY party of deaf thrill-seekers was devastated to be refused entry to the Peeblesshire tree-top adventure park Go Ape.

Lynda McQueen and her seven friends travelled from as far afield as Fife last week for a special birthday bash at the forest assault course at Glentress.

Lynda had contacted the park and stated their condition in advance, however they weren’t told this would be a problem until 20 minutes after they arrived.

A video which shows the site manager explaining that he couldn’t allow entry on safety grounds was uploaded to Facebook by one of the group and has had more than 159,000 views.
