“Up up and away!!”

Go Ape Treetop Adventure Course
Certificate of Excellence
More attraction details
Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
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.

“Up up and away!!”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

This is a great outing for those strong of heart, mind and body :) My husband and brother-in-law made this a weekend outing and they had a great time. It is self-paced so you can go somewhere between 1-4 hours depending on how fast you go. They are both very athletic and finished in about an hour. They both really want to go back, and said they would take more time to enjoy each - they simply didn't know how big it was and how fast they'd make it through. They offer varying levels for varying interests. Great outing for couples, families, friends or even groups!

“Great”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

I love this place and the best part was the Tarzan swing. You feel like you are going to fall and then you get caught. The obstacles are not too hard so everyone can do them.

“Fun family adventure”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Long ziplines were a hit with our 10 and 15 year old. Well-run, staff gives an excellent how-to and safety lesson prior to climbing. At some platforms you can choose from easy or challenging cross between trees, but still see and meet up with your group at the next platform, which was nice.

“Definitely a physical challenge!”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

I conquered my fear of heights at Go Ape! this weekend. The course was long and physically challenging, especially the tarzan swings into the cargo nets. While it's a little on the expensive side, $55 for an adult, it's worth it for one trip to try it out.
