It’s not in the dictionary, but if it was, Go Ape would be described as a ‘tree top adventure’.That means we build giant obstacle courses up in the trees using ladders, walkways, bridges and tunnels made of wood, rope and super-strong wire, and top it all off with the world's best zip lines.We then equip people with harnesses, pulleys and carabiners, give them a 30 minute safety briefing and training and let them loose into the forest canopy, free to swing through the trees. Of course, instructors are always on hand, regularly patrolling the forests (not in monkey suits unfortunately!)The result is spectacular. The Go Ape experience gets the adrenalin pumping, gets people out of their comfort zones and above all (no pun intended), it’s just great fun.

This is an excellent activity for teenagers and adults who are physically up for it. You will do a lot of climbing and maneuvering through/around tight spaces ... but it's all worth it. The courses get gradually higher so you can build your confidence and...More

We had a good time during our first visit to Go Ape. All of the staff was knowledgeable and made us feel comfortable. The activity consisted of five individual courses... each one seemingly harder/ more extreme than the last. The first course is for training,...More

Hi Tina! Thanks for your feedback! I apologize for your experience with our harnesses. For safety reasons, the instructors are trained to fit harnesses tightly, but they shouldn't cause extreme discomfort or bruising. I'll pass your comments on to the site, so they can review...More

I haven't actually climbed the trees and traversed thru the obstacles. I only observed it from the ground. When I was a kid I know I would have loved it. You climb up a tree and then follow a path thru the tree tops. It...More

My 11 and 14 year old sons and I went on this course during Spring Break. The only complaint I had was that it was cold, so much so that my fingers were numb. Otherwise, we had a great time climbing and zip lining.

Great fun for kids of all ages! My kids really loved it and we'd definitely come back. The only drawback is that on the junior course (age 3+), if a kid (or adult!) got scared of an obstacle, the child is forced to complete it...More

This is a physical activity...you climb up ladders, have to hook yourself into safety lines, etc. Not sure that a broken wrist would work so well with this physical activity...
