The original and still the best. Set in the heart of Britain's largest lowland pine forest, our first ever course is centred around 30 miles of bike and walking trails from which to explore 50,000 acres of forest. And the mother of all our courses...more

Really nerve wracking afternoon in the trees!! If you like an adrenalin rush then visit go ape. Great value for money. One downside was the exorbitant parking charges in Thetford forest. Definitely go again.

Really enjoyable experience.Instructors very attentive and good fun, making it a memorable day. Definitely do it again. Segways easy to operate and the instructors ease you in to the operation so you feel confident. Not cheap but well worth the money.

Plenty of activity here - very high up! Good supportive staff do the safety briefing then they're off. You'll need adults with them under some conditions, check online. Not cheap but definitely good value.

Superb fun and lovely setting. Hannah our supervisor was knowledgeable and lovely. A great hour spent on the Segway. First learning in the pen. Then on some small tracks then the limiter was disabled and off we went in to the forest. However once we...More

A really enjoyable experience. The staff are excellent and safety is clearly a priority. We really appreciated the safety talk and the opportunity to ask any questions we had. The stations are all varied and it was not repetitive at all. I would highly recommend.

So there is a junior course designed for 6-12yr olds. Younger people can do it as long as they’re over 1m tall and you think their going to enjoy it
