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.

Very Fun!

I'am seriously scared of heights but with the support of my co-workers was able to complete GO Ape and it was all worth it. The view from the zip lining was very beautiful.

We had a great time here during a family get together. Our group of 13 ranged in age from 13 to 52 and it was fun for all. The staff does a great job with training/safety instructions and after that they let you go off and enjoy! Lots of different obstacles and some great zip lines. Not for those with... More

We spent an afternoon having an adventure in the treetops with Go Ape! This was the second time I've been to this location (the first was several years ago), and both times I've come home very happy with my experience. After checking in and signing the safety waiver, a staff member gives you a thorough briefing, including a practice wire... More

We have lived in Rockville for over a year...and i can't believe it took us SO long to Go Ape! We had so much fun! It is better than a zip line course because the obstacles are challenging, even for people who do like heights. The price seems steep at first, but the safety/training staff is excellent and the course... More

This place is EPIC! My sister and I heard of this place when it was mentioned in the news about a month ago, and being new to the area we figured we would try something adventurous. Therefore, we went the other day to Go Ape! This place is perfect for pretty much anyone who is interested in having a little... More

This was a great afternoon spent outside. We were a group of four adults. There are 5 full obstacle courses (excluding a mini-training-style obstacle course) - all 6 end in a zip line. One two of the courses there is an option for moderate or extreme challenges. The whole trip took 3 hours. There were lots of laughs, challenges, and... More

I experienced Go Ape for the first time and it exceeded my expectations. I've recommended the place to several of my friends, co-workers and boss. The staff was courteous and knowledgeable. After the safety/training brief, I felt confident about venturing out onto the treetop obstacles and zip lining . The best obstacle is the Tarzan Jump - NEED TO HAVE... More

WOW!!!! We had the best time! We went for my boyfriends birthday and of course he was very excited. As for me, I was very nervous about being up in the air doing an obstacle course and then zip lining. But as soon as we had our training with our instructor, I felt so confident. I was absolutely beaming the... More

We had family visiting from out of town and decided Go Ape sounded like a great way to spend a day. We were right! It was like being on a zip lining adventure in Central America yet we were only a few minutes away from the nations Capitol! It was fun for everyone, as evidenced by the boy and his... More

I went here last week with a friend at 9am. After filling the the paperwork, we were met with our host who put us through a quick safety course. It was very informative and easy to learn. There were five teenagers in the group we were put together with, but our host kindly told my friend and I that we... More
