Fantastic, unique experience for the whole family. And the best reviews for places like Go Ape! often come straight from kids. Here's my 8-year-old daughter's take: "Go Ape! is great, but the lines are long. But there's a reason for that...! All of the obstacles...More

Spend time with the family being challenged while encouraging and celebrating achievement. The zip lines and Tarzan swings are the rewards after each obstacle.
