Owner description: 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 cannot gush enough about the Go Ape experience. This course gets you up into the trees for a challenging obstacle course with exhilarating zip lines over the water. Some of the zip lines are over 650' in length. The obstacles are challenging enough to scare you just a little (even though you know you are securely fastened at all times), but not too challenging that our 11-year couldn't do them. The guides are excellent, and provided great instructions and safety guidelines before anyone was allowed on the course. The larger your group, the longer it will take you to complete the course. I would recommend that your group not be larger than 4 people, unless you don't mind waiting for your group to progress on through the course. Great family experience, and a great way to build confidence with kids. This review is specific to the Delaware location - I have not visited any of the other locations. Wear clothes and shoes that can get dirty!

Jesse was our guide today; he and the rest of the staff were welcoming and encouraging throughout the entire experience. The course itself was challenging and fun. All around great experience; can't wait to go again!

Our teenage daughter LOVES adventure; so for a gift, we went as a family to Go Ape at Lums Pond and had a blast! The company does a great job of preparing your gradually for what lies ahead. With children ages 14, 12 and 11, we found the course to be do-able but plenty challenging. There are several points where you can select a more difficult route. Members of our party did take that option and found these sections to be hard, a little more time-consuming and also super rewarding. Everyone agreed that the best part of the course are the ziplines. What is there not to LOVE as you shoot through the trees and over expanses of water? Two of us are historically not fans of heights, but we were so busy making sure that we were attached to the platform or clipping onto the wire correctly that we really didn't have time to dwell on our fear. Be aware that the staff does not hover and, in fact, leaves you on your own to manage yourself and the minors in your party. Also the experience took 3-3.5 hours, not the 1.5 hours we were expecting. So be sure to leave plenty of time to soak in the experience. It's most excellent!

We enjoyed our April visit. Though 15 people were in our time slot, it moved along nicely. We've previously done the Rockville,MD location. This is just as good - maybe even more challenging. Go. You'll like it.
