Win with Water-to-Go


The new everyday GO! bottle from Water-to-Go ensures that you never have to drink anything but the safest, healthiest water regardless of its source, anywhere in the world.

Water-to-Go successfully launched their first product 18 months ago and have had huge success in the travel and outdoor market (David Beckham was even seen with the bottle on his recent travel documentary in Brazil).

Water-to-Go have now launched their new GO! 50cl filter bottle, the perfect size for swinging through the trees at GO APE, school, Uni, work, gym or holidays! The 3 in 1 filter eliminates over 99.9% of bacteria, viruses, chlorine, fluoride and heavy metals such as lead from your water leaving you with safe, healthy water wherever you are.

The GO! filter bottle is in a 50cl re-usable plastic bottle that comes in six funky colours. GO! is the only portable filter on the market that has a timer indicating when it is time to change your filter. Each filter lasts 2 months delivering water at less than 5p a litre, saving you a small fortune not having to buy expensive bottled water.

You can fill up and drink safe from any source (except salt water) including, taps, rivers and streams which means you can always stay hydrated wherever you might be!

GO! bottles and filters are available at Boots stores or online at

We have thirty new GO! filter bottles to give away to our tribe. It’s a clear funky bottle that’s easy to carry and looks the business!

The Highest Go Ape Obstacles

Highest Go Ape Obstacles

All first timers to Go Ape have the same thought when clambering up the very first rope ladder: Crikey! It’s a lot higher than it looks!

You’d be surprised at how teeny-weeny everything on the ground looks from way up high. Even if you aren’t afraid of heights, your legs are bound to wobble a little when you reach the top of the rope ladder and take a step onto the very first platform.

Face Your Fear of Heights With Go ApeIf you take a look around at the other folks in the trees, they’ll all be doing everything they can to ignore the fact they’re sky-high. You’ll realise that there are different ways of dealing with the height: some people choose to shut their eyes (not so practical when you’re navigating your way across an obstacle); some people like to yell at the top of their voices and scare the birds out their nests; while others like to become tree-huggers, tightening their grip around a trunk and refusing to let go for a good couple of minutes.

If you’re a Go Ape newbie, here’s an insider’s tip…

At the start of your adventure, look in front of you, look behind you, look up at the sky… just don’t look down! Especially when you’re making your way up those seemingly endless rope ladder steps.

Before you know it, you’ll start getting used to the heights. Completing the obstacles (like a boss) will give you newfound confidence and you’ll start enjoying the fact you’re 30(ish) feet up in the air. You’ll have no problem looking at the ground beneath you, waving to family, friends or members of the Go Ape tribe as you monkey around in the trees.

Our obstacle courses wouldn’t be half as fun if they were a metre high, would they?

It would certainly be a short zip line journey to the ground. Our courses are designed to be challenging. They’re meant to make you tremble with fear and excitement and send adrenaline pumping around your body! And because they’re tricky, you actually feel like you’ve accomplished something when you whizz down the final zip wire at the end of your adventure!

So, do you dare to tackle our highest obstacles?

If the answer’s yes, try these out for starters:

Grizedale Forest

Standing at over 18 metres tall is the site 5 zip platform at Grizedale Forest Park in Cumbria. Once you’ve launched yourself (or hesitantly stepped) off the platform, you’ll fly 200 metres across the top of Grizedale Beck.

Whinlatter Forest Keswick

Officially crowned ‘Highest Go Ape in the country,’ the course at Whinlatter Forest Keswick isn’t for the faint-hearted. Whinlatter is England’s only true mountain forest and when you’re up in the trees, you’re so high you can see all the way to Scotland!

Trent Park

Who said you need to travel to the countryside to Go Ape?! The course at London’s Trent Park reaches a towering 16m at its highest point. It’s also the very first twin course (which means double the fun), and it’s home to our epic Skateboard Zips!

Don’t Be A Chicken!

Dare Adventure - Don't Be A Chicken

Did you know that September is National Chicken Month?

Yes, really! (It’s also National Vegetarian Awareness Month, ironically…).

September is the month to celebrate our fine-feathered friends – roast dinner on Sunday, anyone? While we no doubt have a lot of love for the bird, unless we want to end up at the bottom of a KFC Bargain Bucket we certainly would never want to be the bird. So, the Go Ape folk have a word of advice for you: don’t be a chicken!

Besides, who wants to be a chicken when you can be a gorilla and swing through the trees at Go Ape? This month we’re double-daring our customers to pluck up the courage (see what we did there?) to visit us again and have another shot at one of our award-winning Tree Top Adventure courses. But this time, we want you to turn up the heat and give it your all. We want to see you transform from a tree-top trainee to a Go Ape pro!

Becoming a Go Ape pro involves mastering those sky-high obstacles.

Cast your mind back to your very first Go Ape visit: Did you do the splits while swinging on the stirrups? Did you struggle to pull yourself up the rope ladder? Did your knees wobble so much you lost balance on one of the bridges? Did you stand on the Tarzan Swing platform for four minutes too long? Did you lose count of the number of times you made a bumpy landing after whizzing down a zip wire?

Unless you’re some kind of gorilla genius (which, who knows, you very well might be), then there is always room for improvement after your first Go Ape session. And we’re going to help you perfect your Go Ape style: over on our #DareAdventure page yoGo Ape Bridge Crossingsu’ll find some video tips and tricks on how to tackle different obstacles on the course.

We bet you didn’t know, for example, that the key to a steady rope ladder ascent is to keep your hands central on the wooden steps, move at a slow yet consistent pace and push with your legs? Or that pointing your toes ballerina-style will really help you out when it comes to crossing one of our most challenging obstacles – the stirrups? And we bet you didn’t know that crawling through the tunnel on your hands and knees is not necessarily the quickest or most effective way of travel…

If you’re rising to the challenge and plan to visit us again, don’t forget that you can use your unique 15% discount code, which you can find on the back of your certificate or on your feedback email. Or, if you head to our #DareAdventure and Win page you can enter a competition to win a pair of Go Ape tickets. Good luck and see you soon!
