Fantastic Experience!

Safety was the number one consideration and the training was thorough while keeping it fun. The views from the top were great and the zipline finish was spectacular!

I thought this place was excellent. However, we went on a weekend when there were a lot of people. There could have been more staff moving people along. We had a group in front of us (all adults) that would not move so the line behind was extremely backed up. The staff should have stepped in and had them step... More

After the instructions, you are on your own, but with staff monitoring you in case you need help or advice. The climb to get to the zipline is definitely a workout and there are simple or complex routes you can pick to test your strength. We went on a weekday so our group was another couple so we had fun... More

While viSiting Williamsburg, we saw an advertisement for this. Decided to try out. Directions on our phones were not that great, but we eventually made it. I was disappointed & really should have thought about this, but you must wear closed toed shoes for this activity. So, I watched my kids and husband do re course and zip down the... More

Amazing place and so much fun The instructors thoroughly prepare you and monitor you through the course. They don't watch you like a hawk, but someone is always near You go through 5 courses that get progressively harder...although there are times when you can take an easier option DO NOT TAKE THESE ACTIVITES LIGHTLY! This is a demanding and physical... More

This was my mother and I's first time ziplining and it was fantastic! We quickly realized we were using muscles we do not usually work on enough apparently.. But it was overall an amazing time!! The Tarzan swing was fun, but took guts to just jump off and swing freely. I also really liked that they had an "easy" or... More

I took my son who is 14 and his girlfriend that's the same age. The three of us went through the big course. It was scary fun! I am slightly afraid of heights and it got really high at the end. We had a great time. My youngest who is 7 went on the tree top Jr course and loved... More

I had so much fun and learned quite a bit from my experience at Go Ape. I went with a group of coworkers and we were able to communicate effectively to help each other out and also to encourage one another. Although some of the people I came with were afraid of heights, they were able to challenge themselves with... More

I went on the Go-Ape Adventure Course with my family. It was very hot and humid, but at the start of each section, there is a stockade with water and a bench to rest on. The Adventure Course was fun and challenging, especially the rope nets at the end of the Tarzan Zip lines. Frequently throughout the course you could... More
