As part of our oldest Granddaughter's birthday celebration we went to Go Ape in Williamsburg, VA. We were a little concerned about whether "grandparents" could handle the course. Our instructor, Ryan, was terrific! We had an absolute blast with our daughter, granddaughters and their friends. We found that we weren't too old to have fun going ape! Try it, you'll... More

I went with my boy scout troop 915 and it was an amazing experience. The scouts loved the challenging obstacles and the confidence they gained. Going back this spring!!!

This was so much fun. Cameron started our small group off with some basic safety information and demonstrations such as how to stay connected to the wires, how to zipline down the wires, and how to land on the ziplines. I really enjoyed and appreciated that b/c I learn by doing rather than just watching and listening. We then went... More

For a surprise, I took my two older daughters to Go Ape adventure. They loved it, especially the zip lines. At first they were nervous, but soon everyone got the hang of it. The girls were able to pace themselves and to accomplish everything in about 3 hours. The ropes courses and the "walking" in the trees were a hit.... More

My sister, a friend, and I experienced the Go Ape adventure as a part of her 50th birthday weekend. Only three in our group of seven went and we had a blast! It was challenging and exhilarating at the same time. We would do it again I. A heart beat. That being said, it's not for everyone. It can be... More

Had an awesome time on the Lums Pond (Bear, DE) course today. Course was challenging but not overwhelming for my wife's first time. We both thoroughly enjoyed the course and will definitely plan to return with the kids for another run.

"Life begins at the end of your comfort zone." I have a fear of heights so this was definitely a challenge for me. I opted for the easy detour (versus extreme) when given the option. Total tour took 3 hours. Appx 1 hour was getting harnessed up, safety instruction and waiting on others ahead of us on the course. I... More

Wow. Put on your workout gear for this adventure. You'll be climbing up rope ladders into the trees and negotiating perilous obstacles. Made up of five sections, each section starts with a rope ladder climb into the tree. Then a few obstacles made from cables strung between trees. Then a zipline down to the forest floor. Each section becomes higher... More
