We took our 4, 6, and 8 year old for the Treetop Junior Course and they had a blast. It was a first for our son and he begged to go ziplining again the next day. The staff put safety first, but still helped the kids have fun. Great family team-building activity.

I took my husband here for his 47th birthday. We both like to have fun and wanted to do something a little different. I was a little nervous at first, but I'm glad that we did it. We had a great time. It was very exciting and empowering at the same time. Our only complaint is that you have to... More

WOW!!! I did "IT"!!! is the most Empowering story to tell!!! This is a Perfect family activity. Why? Because each person is able to share their unique experience and how they met with fear (False Evidence Appearing Real) and "Do IT" regardless. Right Now, as you live it! Really testing the mind- body connection and Honesty. Of course, you have... More

We live across the river and have wanted to come to Go Ape! for years. No better time than our 10th wedding anniversary! This course is SO fun. They give you a thorough training course at the beginning and then send you on your way solo. This surprised me but made it all the more thrilling! We had 8 in... More

I took my 11 year old daughter to this course and we had the best time. We opted for the Tree Top adventure course and it was fun,challenging and well worth the money. They are all about safety and had instructors at every site making sure you were doing ok. Our instructor Becca was awesome, very patient and very focused... More

I am scared of heights. True. Bleachers, six foot ladders, all that... But, helpful hint you've all heard a thousand times, "don't look down". True. You can overcome your fear here because you are strapped in and hooked with no less than three hooks. I am competitive and that helped because once I made it up the first tree...and...let go...

GoApe is a great place for younger kids. However for the adult with athletic ability it won't be quite as challenging. The pros were that we had a great group! They made all the obstacles more fun. We had a kid in our group and let me tell you, he wasn't afraid of much. The cons were that everyone in... More

Your son only turns 14 once! So I gave him some options that were free from indoors, video games and electronics. He chose Go Ape. It's been blazing hot so we went at 11:30. Despite reading all sorts of things I wasn't sure what to expect. I thought it'd be some simple less than exciting zip lining.. WRONG! It is... More

We were a family of 5 with 3 children 10/12/14. We had a great morning overcoming our fear of heights, working together and lots of laughter. The safety briefing was excellent and although an instructor does not go round with you there is always a member of staff close by if needed. Richard was our instructor and he was great!... More
