Owner description: Our first Scottish adventure and what an impact it's made. Two of Britain's longest zip wires, each stretching over 400m long, flying customers 150 feet above the ground and over a 90 foot waterfall. It's Zip Wire Heaven in Loch Lomond. Our first Tree Top Adventure in Scotland and what an impact it's made. Stunning scenery of the surrounding Queen Elizabeth Forest Park in Aberfoyle (Stirlingshire) gives the course a jaw-dropping backdrop and makes for a great day out in Scotland.

“Brithday party for 11 year old - it is expensive BUT it is safe and safe costs money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

My wife and I took our son and seven of his friends and two other adults (2:1 ration required) to this center. They all thought it was the best party any of them had ever been to. The safety training and staff supervision is AAA quality. The equipment is all high quality and the location is stunning. We were on the course for near 4 hours as a very slow family in front of us caused delays but you know what their kids conquered their fears and that's just fine. I absolutely agree a walk up a Monroe is just as rewarding and a darn site cheaper but I'm 41 and if I was 11 and could once a year do a GoApe instead of a hill climb I would. As a parent i'd sooner pay for safe thrills than risk it.

“Fantastic day out. Can't wait to do it again! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Went to Aberfoyle GoApe! and had a great time. Definitely beats having a lazy day in the house!

Our instructor, Damo was very friendly and approachable - as were all the staff who helped/rescued us along the way.

Breathe taking views when going along the two longest zip lines. A great activity for couples,families and individuals. Will definitely return.

“Do not like the positioning”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

I do not like that it has ruined a beautiful forest and although the zip wire may be fun to some it ruins the quiet countryside for many more.

“AMAZING!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

What a visit! Must do attraction, from arrival the staff are very friendly and pleasant, had a great time swinging about the trees, zip wires are so much fun and I think the 2nd Tarzan swing was probably our favourite part! Couldn't recommend it enough.
