It’s been a long time coming but our forest doors are finally open for (monkey) business – hurrah!
Our aim here at Go Ape is to inspire others to live life more adventurously; to open people’s eyes to the fun that can be had when they step outside their comfort zones – to encourage people to be bold and brave in order to discover their true potential!
So, are you ready to reach new heights?!
If you come hang with us at Go Ape, that’s exactly what you’ll be doing. If you’re a newbie, there’s a good chance your jaw will drop when you first lay eyes upon one of our obstacle courses. Believe us when we say that it feels much higher when you’re up there!
But, fear not. Tree-top trembles in the form of wobbly legs and shaky palms are completely normal. Hauling yourself up the (seemingly endless) initial rope ladder is always the scariest part, and so is crossing the first obstacle with the ground far, far beneath you (around 35 feet below you, in fact).
In no time at all you’ll start getting into the swing of things (quite literally).
Those trembles will start easing off and the whole height thing won’t both you anymore. Your inner Tarzan will be unleashed and you won’t want to come down!
If you’ve already Go Ape-d and want to be taken to even greater heights, why not check out the Tree Top Adventure in London’s Trent Park, which reaches a towering 16 metres at its highest point? Or you could head to Whinlatter Forest in Keswick, which is home to the highest Go Ape in the country!
If you really want to reach new heights, then you’ve got to take a trip to Grizedale Forest.
Not only does it boast our highest zip platform (zip 5 starts 18 metres above ground, maximising air time), but it’s also where you’ll find our one and only Zip Trekking Adventure!
Tackling tree-top obstacles is one thing; soaring above the dramatic Douglas Firs of Grizedale Forest, with stunning views of the valley, is another! Instead of hanging out in the tree-tops, you’ll be flying over them via a tandem of seven zip wires! Sound fun? Of course it does!
If you go on a Zip Trekking Adventure, you’ll cover around 3km of ground and will be in the air for around 2 hours in total – that’s plenty of time to master the art of human flight!
As well as enjoying zip, after zip, after zip, a Zip Trekking Adventure includes a 20 minute hike through one of the UK’s most dramatic forests, plus a ride in one of the Go Ape Land Rovers, up winding mountain roads to the first zip line.
