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

We had an awesome, fun and exhilarating afternoon here with our eleven and fourteen year olds. Everyone was engaged and we were absolutely exhausted at the end. The zip lines were great and the Tarzan swings really pushed me out of my comfort zone but I’m so glad I didn’t give into my fears because it was so fun. The instructors were great and we felt very safe.

This was a very fun place for our grandchildren. In fact, they mentioned this as a favorite part of the vacation!! The staff was friendly and helpful. The children had so much fun doing the ropes and the zip-line, both for the first time. They were ready to return the next day. We would highly recommend this for anyone wanting a little adventure. There were both young children and parents taking part in this adventure. AND we had a lot of fun watching and taking pictures.
