Go Ape Battersea – THE STATS

Go Ape Tree Top Adventure Battersea Park

On December 10th 2015 we’ll be setting Go Ape loose on Battersea Park – we thought we’d gather together some ‘vital stats’ for our latest adventure!

Our NEW central London adventure features some seriously high crossings plus some are twice as long than our other locations, making them extra wobbly and challenging. 

Over a Kilometre of crossings

If all the obstacles were laid out end-to-end they would cover a massive 1,061.88m – so over a kilometre! There’s the usual suspects to cross, like the tunnel and the stirrups – plus some new additions to try your hand at…

The highest point is 12m

Our Battersea adventure is made up of 25 poles and 12 of Battersea Park’s trees. The tallest poles are a staggering 15.5m, and the highest point you stand is 12m off the ground. Bring it on!

Taller than Canary Wharf!

If you put the poles end-on-end they would be tower at 300.6m, which is higher than Canary Wharf (and just 9m shy of the Shard).

Calling all Londoners (and adventure lovers!)

Say hello to… Go Ape Battersea Park!

People say “everything happens in the capital” but, until now, we couldn’t really agree.

When people said it we’d nod politely, saying “yes, it’s a buzzing place, isn’t it?” but only ever half-heartedly. Something was missing – can you guess the reason for our out-of-character lack of enthusiasm?

Yep, you’ve got it: there was no Go Ape in the centre of London! But, finally, in just a couple of weeks we will be able to jump for joy and whole-heartedly agree that YES! London IS the place to be!Go Ape Battersea Park

Our award-winning high wire tree top adventure will be opening in Battersea Park – the first for any UK city! (Can you tell we’re a little bit excited?!).

What’s more, Go Ape Battersea Park – which will open in December – will feature obstacle crossings that are double – yes, DOUBLE – the height of many of our courses, and some are also twice as long. If you love a wobble, a challenge and a healthy dose of adventure – look no further than the tree tops of Battersea! Plus, the course is open to Mini Tarzans over 1m tall, making Go Ape Battersea Park a fun family day out like no other.

Battersea Park is right in the heart of London – the 200-acre green space can be found opposite Chelsea, on the south bank of the River Thames, and the nearest train station is Battersea Park National Rail station, with trains running regularly from Victoria.

So, if you know someone who lives in or near London, or is planning a visit to the capital soon, why not treat them to the ULTIMATE Christmas present this year – the gift of adventure! Yes, buy them vouchers for Go Ape, simply click here to personalise and buy your voucher which will be delivered to you in 2-5 working days (for free) and will be valid for a whole year!

NEW City Park Adventure Coming Soon!


Go Ape Battersea Park is on it’s way.

City Park Adventure is coming to the heart of London in Battersea Park and we are aiming for an Autumn opening.

Work has began and we’re as excited as you are for our first City Park Adventure.

Nestled a stones throw from the buzz of the city, our high ropes adventure takes one beautiful corner of Battersea Park and adds a healthy dollop of breathtaking London scenery. We’ll add a smattering of tree top high wires, tricky crossings (using ladders, walkways, bridges and tunnels made of wood, rope and super-strong wire) and unforgettable zip wires.

Here’s a Q & A on City Park Adventure:

Here’s a few things you might want to know…

What are the plans?

Our course will consist of 2 main towers, from which participants will work their way around several loops of obstacles and zip wires of varying difficulty. The crossings will be suspended from suitable trees and purpose built steel poles. 

Will Go Ape damage the trees?

Go Ape is built on the long term health of trees. Our courses are designed to have a minimal impact on the trees we utilise, allowing us to work with partners like the Forestry Commission. We work with leading independent arboriculturalists to check the trees remain healthy and strong.


We’ll keep you posted on when it’s landed!
