Go Ape was awesome! They gave us plenty of safety training and then plenty of guidance until we felt comfortable adventuring! We completed our obstacle course/zip line adventure and it was amazing. Thanks so much to Go Ape for making my husband’s 40th birthday great!

I throughly enjoyed my first experience with go ape. The weather and the group I was with made it excited. I can only hope next time there would be a photographer while zipling.

This is not just a zipline experience; ziplining took up maybe 5% of the 3 hours it took to go through the course. Most of this is a challenging series of vertical climbs and traverses at varying heights. It's not an obstacle course, rather, a series of challenging traverses involving moving or unsteady cables, planks, meshes, etc. I am a middle aged Dad and to do this well, I needed (1) no fear; (2) average or below average weight; (3) above average upper body strength; and (4) very good balance. I have none of these qualities! Parts were fun, parts were terrifying, parts were frustrating. The training and safety demo/culture were well done. The staff were friendly. All of them young, athletic and trim, of course. The training station is a bit misleading...it's a simple, low elevation cable crossing and a very short zipline. You learn the proper safety procedures. But beyond this first station, you are essentially unsupervised for the rest of the 2.5 hours. The five remaining stations become progressively higher and more challenging. Nothing is said about the nature of the escalating challenges that lie ahead (you can't even see the other stations, they are buried in the woods) . At the training station you are given the opportunity to "quit now for a full refund" but the training station is so easy and simple, you think the rest will be a cakewalk. Not so! I was a miserable, trembling, sweating, anxiety-ridden, sore wreck at the end of it all. Once you are up on a platform, you are committed to pressing on. I think the staff need to do a better job advertising the true, difficult nature of the challenges up front - especially to patrons who are not in the best of shape and body composition. This is a message to all of us middle aged moms and dads taking your kids on this course - beware - this "treetop adventure" might not be for you!

My husband and I did Go Ape Rockville Treetop Adventure today! It was a blast!!!! David welcomed us in the cabin and gave us some great tips that we remembered and put to use on the course. Rob gave us a great safety demonstration and ensured we knew what we were doing before letting us go out on our own! I would highly recommend this adventure to those that want a good thrill!!!
