My 2 adult children and I go ziplining at Go Ape every time we visit Williamsburg. It's a great outdoor activity to be climbing the various obstacles in the trees and then ziplining down to the ground. The instructors are great at emphasizing all the ways to keep safe by staying attached to the safety lines at all times. There is an instructional part at the start to get you set up in your harness and to go over the safety instructions. Once you are in the trees you are on your own but the staff are nearby on the ground if you need them for assistance. There is some physical climbing of ladders and ropes so you should be prepared for some physical exertion but there are harder and easier options depending on your preference. It's a great way to spend 2 - 3 hours outdoors.

Go Ape was absolutely worth every penny! My husband and I spent our fifth wedding anniversary doing the treetop adventure, and it was a complete blast! Our guide, Mark, was knowledgeable and communicated the rules quickly, efficiently, and clearly. The obstacles on the course ranged from very easy to very difficult with plenty of thrills mixed in throughout (there are five huge zip lines!). We’ve already begun recommending Go Ape to our family and friends! I absolutely recommend a visit!

My husband and teenage sons were excited to do the 3-hr Treetop Adventure while staying in Williamsburg. I called before booking and was told that instructional time would be minimal and that if they finished the course before their 3 hours were up, they could redo the course elements of their choosing until their reservation time was over. Sadly, the course instructor was late to get started, and she spent nearly an entire hour on instruction, eating up 1/3 of the time we paid for before they even got started on the course. Once underway, when my guys got to the 1st zipline, they were told to wait for a 2nd instructor to arrive at the landing area before they could proceed. They waited there for 10-15 minutes before the 2nd instructor arrived. Finally on their own, the guys zipped through the course pretty quickly and finished around 2:30. But instead of allowing them to continue back through, a 3rd staff member took their harnesses and told them they were done. I feel like we were sold 3 hours of fun and only received half of that. Very disappointing. The course itself is great. But the staff doesn't seem to have their act together. Even worse, I answered the post-adventure survey explaining my disappointment, and a week later, I have received no response at all.

Hi Sue, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience. I completely understand your frustration with the situation. We want Go Ape to be an enjoyable experience for all of our guests. Our Treetop Adventure is a self-paced course, and upon check-in, guests are told to expect the course to take 2-3 hours to complete. Safety is our top priority, and our instructors go through a detailed safety brief that is not minimal. I apologize if you were told otherwise, but we want to ensure all guests understand our safety protocols and feel comfortable going up into the trees. I apologize for the wait on the zip line. We have spoken with site staff to ensure that will not happen again. Once a guest finishes the course, they are greeted by an instructor to take their harness and give them their completion certificate. Since Treetop Adventure is not a timed experience and is designed in a linear fashion, we typically do not have guests repeating any portions of the course as they would on Treetop Journey. We're reviewing your feedback with our site staff to ensure that future situations are handled with more care and clear communication. Please feel free to reach out directly if you have any other comments or suggestions, and we'll be happy to help. Cheers, MM
