Our 5 Favourite Photos of 2014

Our Top 5 Photos of 2014 - Go Ape

It’s all a bit dreary outside, and whilst we know that’s never an excuse to shy away from getting outdoors, we can’t help but reminisce about our favourite moments from last year. The Go Ape Tribe, yes that includes you, captured some awe-inspiring moments in 2014, here’s our top five:

1. The forest awakens

We’re lucky to have 28 Go Ape Adventures in some of the UK’s most beautiful forests and country parks, which means we’re privy to stunning scenery all year-round. This snap was courtesy of the Tribe from our Thetford course in Suffolk. The warm sunlight glowing through the trees brought a monkey-sized grin to our faces. Personally I can’t wait until the clocks spring forward, only 58 days to go…

2. Don’t forget to look up

The forest floor certainly offers incredible views of surrounding flora and fauna, but sometimes you need to look up to capture truly beautiful moments. We love this worm’s eye view of one of our tree top platforms, there’s something special about climbing our rope ladders before tackling the next tricky crossing or exciting zip wire. Typically, our Tree Top Adventures are about 12 metres high, but the highest Go Ape platform is 18m above ground at Go Ape in Grizedale Forest. Afraid of heights? Why not make 2015 the year you face your fears!

3. Geronimooooooo

Did someone mention Grizedale Forest? This photo of our Zip Trekking Adventure had to make the top five photos of 2014 for the sheer magnitude of the surroundings. Our outdoor zip trekking is over 3km long and offers adventurers incredible views across the valleys for around 2 exhilarating hours.

4. Into the beyond

We know no one loves adventure more than kids, which is why we designed our Tree Top Junior courses just for them. For us, this snap encapsulates the sense of exploration we want all little monkeys to feel as they make their way around the obstacles.

5. Glorious gyroscopes

There’s something wonderfully peaceful about this photo of the Tribe exploring the forest on our all-terrain Segways. Heading off towards the sun, we know our Forest Segway Experience is definitely a unique way to enjoy the great outdoors.

And one for good luck…

We couldn’t help but include this photo of a jumpster hitting the tramps at Air Space, our latest adventure. Based near Glasgow, Air Space is a huge spring-loaded urban playground, and the largest indoor trampoline park in Europe. For more amazing photos, check out Air Space on Instagram.

Zip Trekking in the Press

Zips

Our latest experience to join the Go Ape family tree is what everyone is talking about. We’re always proud when we hit the headlines. Here’s just a few of what the press are saying about NEW Zip Trekking Adventure at Grizedale Forest:

Financial Times, June 20th 2014.

“Zip wires – aka death slides – used to be seen only at playgrounds and Scout camps but a new generation have been scaled up and turned into tourist attractions in their own right. Opening on July 4, the Go Ape Zip Trekking Adventure in Cumbria’s Grizedale Forest bills itself as the UK’s longest series of zip wires – the seven sections together add up to 1.5km of sliding.”

The Sun, 5th July 2014.

“The Go Ape Zip Trekking Adventure has more than two miles of lines zig-zagging through the trees, making the the longest series of zips in the country.”

North West Evening Mail, 5th July 2014.

“Zip trekking an adrenalin rush for high fliers. Tandem zip trekking was a brilliant experience. The views were breath-taking, the afternoon adrenalin fuelled and the Go Ape team only  helped make our two hour adventure even more entertaining.”

Now Open. Be One of the First to Fly!
