This was a fun activity, it was made slightly frustrating at times as it was quite busy and obviously some people were quite slow.
The actual activity was fun, scary in places. My 10 and 13 year old found it all relatively easy with few scary bits.
They got quite cold waiting between courses as only so many people allowed per section.
It was worth doing but takes longer than yiu think if busy. We took nearly 3 hours but lots of waiting around so have enough layers and snacks.

Had a great few hours (3 or so) doing this with my ten year old daughter. She was 1.43 against the minimum requirement of 1.40 and would have struggled with a couple of stations ahd she been any shorter.

Staff were excellent and the activity itself was great fun!! Groups of about twelve moved round the different zones. Each ended with a zip line which was great fun!! Would really recommend!!

Absolutely cracking day with the family today at GoApe Matfen. Staff were super calm and friendly at all times. The Safety instruction and care for is all was outstanding and the support for a (ahem)slightly overweight and ageing participant in a pickle (twice) was very much appreciated. Many many thanks to all. In particular Richard who had the patience of a saint! We will be back!

First class experience. I was a little worried that my 12 year old would be a little anxious but it was me doing all the fretting - she nailed it. The course was challenging and exciting and not for the faint hearted but what a rush. I'm 58 and I loved it. Fantastic staff too. I'd recommend this to anyone and thank you to the staff - great work.

Came here with my husband and it was great fun and something for all the family. There are 5 tree top challengers each one different to the rest. Some have different paths to take depending on level of difficulty. There is an instructor who will put you in your harness and show you how to use the carabiners. They are with you for the first 2 challenges and then you’re on your own, but I felt safe the whole time. You even get a certificate and a sticker at the end! It took us about 3 hours to get around the whole course but that was only due to waiting for the other groups of people ahead of you. Luckily we arrived half an hour before our slot as we had issues getting parked due to the golf car park being closed! Overall I would definitely do it again and would like to try other sites! I would recommend this to anyone!!

We went as a family of 4. We did enjoy the activities, but the wait between the start points was excessive. At the last challenge, I think we waited 25 minutes to start. It took us 3 hours in total to get round. This is a shame as it is a great activity and I would recommend it out of season.

We've done Go Ape today and it was really good fun. The staff are very friendly and give you a full safety briefing. It's great to go out of your comfort zone, knowing that it's completely safe. The zip wire descents were a real hoot as well.

Went hear for my sons 11th Birthday we had a great day despite with weather that didn’t spoil it at all. Felt very safe in the harness and we were very high up. Although I do think child price is reasonable but for adults I think would be the same £33 is rather steep and there was a bit waiting about as there was four groups on same time as us and you don’t get the chance to do phases of the course again which you should be able to do but u get to do it only once which is a bit disappointing but over al had good day defo recommend even if frightened of heights it was an experience and brill memories
