The Tree Top Adventure

This is what made Go Ape so popular in the first place! The original experience involves fun and adventure across the tree tops with high ropes, tree-to-tree crossings, tunnels and epic wind-in-your-face zip wires for a spectacular landing.

Tree Top Junior

So long as your little monkey is over 1 metre high, this experience is designed for them. It’s a whole fun-filled hour of climbing, trail blazing and obstacles for all to enjoy. This Go Ape adventure is aimed at 6 – 12 years old, but if your Mini Tarzan is under 6 but over 1 metre or over 12 years, they still might be able to join in. Just check the FAQ.

Forest Segway

This is a way to explore the beauty of the forest on a self-balancing electric Segway that kids adore! You can spend a wonderful hour taking this latest in green technology around the forests.

Zip Trekking Adventure

This is an amazing seven tandem zip wire experience covering three kilometres that takes you through the trees at Grizedale Forest in Cumbria. This is for 13 year olds and above and includes a 20 minute hike through the most beautiful forest,  a ride off-road to the training zip wire, time in the training zone and a chance to practice landing like a pro before going wild above the forest floor on the zip wires. You get a certificate to prove you’ve done it at the end!
