It’s not in the dictionary, but if it was, Go Ape would be described as a ‘tree top adventure’.That means we build giant obstacle courses up in the trees using ladders, walkways, bridges and tunnels made of wood, rope and super-strong wire, and top it all off with the world's best zip lines.We then equip people with harnesses, pulleys and carabiners, give them a 30 minute safety briefing and training and let them loose into the forest canopy, free to swing through the trees. Of course, instructors are always on hand, regularly patrolling the forests (not in monkey suits unfortunately!)The result is spectacular. The Go Ape experience gets the adrenalin pumping, gets people out of their comfort zones and above all (no pun intended), it’s just great fun.

I love it! It was quite challenging, but fun, fun,fun! The instructors had great attitudes- very friendly, supportive, and encouraging. Will definitely do it again to introduce more friends (and my son) to this great activity.

The Go Ape website is easy to use and setting a reservation is fantastic. The reservation system tells you how many slots are still open. We got to the checkin and filled out the paperwork, and then were told to go into the forest to meet our guide. The guide put our harnesses on and explained the safety rules. The... More

ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS! Two friends and I went on a road trip for 11 days. During our planning we knew we wanted to try to do some sort of adventure. We randomly came across Go Ape on the internet. We were able to get a student rate of $55. Both of my friends are terrified of heights but they were... More

A friend and I booked our GoApe adventure through Groupon and had an excellent time yesterday. The course was indeed a challenging workout, but it had built in options to skip portions if you didn't feel up to them because of fatigue or fear. ;) The instructors had great attitudes- very friendly, approachable, supportive, and encouraging. Will definitely book again... More

The staff was very friendly throughout the experience, the course itself was fun. We had a group of six, four of whom were over 55, who were able to complete the course with a little assistance. There were new challenges in each section and the most difficult parts had a split path which included a slightly easier option. I recommend... More

Our group of 11 people (average age, early 30s) enjoyed spending just over three hours on this attraction's many zipline platforms and treetop balancing/ climbing exercises. This place is an outstanding values for the number of things there are to do. Minus two stars because you are practically guaranteed to get dragged on your back/ butt across bark chips when... More

With kids from 12 to 20 it's hard to find something they all enjoy. My daughters went today for my youngest daughter's birthday. They had a terrific time. The guides were really great. It was a challenge for the youngest since she was a little scared but she was so proud of herself when she was finished and the older... More

Go ape is a very nice ropes course and very well run. I gave it 4 stars because having been there twice and used the more difficult path both times, there wasn't a lot of thrill in it the second time.

This place was awesome. Went with my wife on a crisp fall afternoon and we had a great time. After a quick training session they turn you loose to work your way through the course. There is a little bit of waiting for the folks ahead of you to make it across each obstacle but it's nice to just chat... More
