    Details

    The UK's No.1 Forest Adventure.

    Take to the trees and speed down zip slides. They're part of an exciting course of rope bridges, Tarzan swings and crossings; all set high above the forest floor.

    Live life more adventurously and unleash your inner Ape! Bring your tribe and enjoy the UK's No.1 Tree Top Adventure. With breathtaking scenery, epic zip wires and hours of fun - we promise you a day out you'll never forget!
    Go Ape offers two to three hours of tree top fun. It's a great way to get outdoors and have some fun. We take one lush, green forest and a healthy dollop of breathtaking scenery; blend with a smattering of tree-top high wires, tricky crossings (using ladders, walkways, bridges and tunnels made of wood, rope and super-strong wire) and wind-in-your-face zip wires; and finish off with a liberal dose of people in search of their inner Tarzan.
