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 was a great afternoon spent outside. We were a group of four adults. There are 5 full obstacle courses (excluding a mini-training-style obstacle course) - all 6 end in a zip line. One two of the courses there is an option for moderate or extreme challenges. The whole trip took 3 hours. There were lots of laughs, challenges, and... More

I experienced Go Ape for the first time and it exceeded my expectations. I've recommended the place to several of my friends, co-workers and boss. The staff was courteous and knowledgeable. After the safety/training brief, I felt confident about venturing out onto the treetop obstacles and zip lining . The best obstacle is the Tarzan Jump - NEED TO HAVE... More

WOW!!!! We had the best time! We went for my boyfriends birthday and of course he was very excited. As for me, I was very nervous about being up in the air doing an obstacle course and then zip lining. But as soon as we had our training with our instructor, I felt so confident. I was absolutely beaming the... More

We had family visiting from out of town and decided Go Ape sounded like a great way to spend a day. We were right! It was like being on a zip lining adventure in Central America yet we were only a few minutes away from the nations Capitol! It was fun for everyone, as evidenced by the boy and his... More

I went here last week with a friend at 9am. After filling the the paperwork, we were met with our host who put us through a quick safety course. It was very informative and easy to learn. There were five teenagers in the group we were put together with, but our host kindly told my friend and I that we... More

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...
