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. « less

This attraction, by far, is one of the best short adventures I have been on. Myself and the family had no idea what we were getting into, My daughter, afraid of heights, had a wonderful time. My husband, a retired military man found it challenging but fun and my grandson 14, had a experience to tell when he returns home.... More

My husband and I went to GoApe for a bit of weekend fun and exercise, expecting only ziplines. We were pleasantly surprised by the variety of crossings and obstacles (the Tarzan Swing and the crossing with the rings were my two favorites). Some bits require a tad more fitness than others, but overall I'd say most adults can handle the... More

I took my 10 and 13 year olds on a weekday morning. Great time to go, with only 3 other people on the course. Instructions were thorough even my 10 yr old felt ready for the course after the orientation. We had a great time and loved the entire course!

This is not your zip lining adventure, This is climbing, jumping, zip lining and even skate boarding to the limit. We started at 4 on a Sunday afternoon, and we were challenged for three and a half hours of testing ourselves in ways we never had, amazing tine with family/ Six different sets to explore, we loved the gorilla jumps...

I went in April of 2013 and had an amazing time. I didn't realize just how great this course was until I went on another course this past week that couldn't hold a candle to Go Ape. Go Ape has a great in-depth safety tutorial. They absolutely make sure you know what you're doing before you go up in the... More

Great course - over six acres of zip linning. It's an impressive course, mostly in the air, I went on a groupon and I loved it . I can't wait to go back again.

Though you can only go as an adult to chaperone children..... so make sure you go before everyone is too big. What great fun, after training and instruction which means you are held on by sometimes 3 clips, you stumble across wobbly plank bridges, pull yourself along wires and ropes and zoom down zip wires. We went on half term... More

Our group had 2 adults, 2 12yo, and 2 10yo and we went over spring break on a weekday morning. It was soo much fun. 2 of the kids were very nervous about the whole thing but the safety lecture (it was a lecture!) was thorough then the short training course made everything less confusing and gave people confidence. It... More

This is the best obstacle course in the world and can also be quite a workout. Hanging upside down sixty feet above the ground and stretching for something to hold on to can be terribly frightening and fun.
