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.

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 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....More

Hi, The course is a 5 minute drive from Shady Grove metro station. We would suggest taking the metro there but you would need a cab and/or uber to get to the course. Thanks!
