One of the best days out in Yorkshire: They don't call this the Great Yorkshire Forest for nothing. With hilltop-to-hilltop zip wires and a plunging valley below, it's easy to see why our adventure at Dalby Forest is so popular. It's simply stunning. Our Tree Top Adventure involves fun and adventure across six sites. Each site features our award winning high ropes, crossings, tunnels, bridges and epic wind-in-your-face zip wires to finish.With hilltop-to-hilltop zip wires and a plunging valley below, it's easy to see why our adventure at Dalby Forest is so popular. It's simply stunning. And the adventure does not need to stop there. You can get off the beaten track and enjoy our latest forest adventure with Go Ape Forest Segway - an epic NEW experience with a down to earth twist. And Dalby Forest is also home to our Tree Top Junior Adventure for Tiny Tarzans. Release your little monkeys onto a Go Ape course designed for them. No one loves adventure more than kids!

Excellent staff, venue and facilities. We run a parachute school and decided to close for the day due to the rubbish weather and go and do something different that didn't need such good weather! Our instructor, Nick, gave a thorough explanation of the equipment and how to negotiate the course, followed by a practical demonstration which we were then to... More

We (9 yo son, 6 yo daughter and I) did this two days ago and we all loved it. Staff were professional but very friendly and helpful. I thought I wouldn't really enjoy this, thinking it would be just for kids, but I loved as much as they did.

I went with my boyfriend last week and had a fantastic time (even in the rain). The staff were all lovely and helpful. Our instructor, Jess, was fab - very funny! We did it in about 2 hours and could have done a couple of the obstacles again. Make sure you take a change of clothes though because we got... More

Plenty to do on the grounds. Absolutely worth the price. Very adrenalin rush day even for adults. Smaller course available for children. I did feel a little unsafe due to the self locking onto the ropes, I thought there would be Steward in the trees at each point. You are well taught how to use the ropes though. Brilliant day....

Bought this for my 13 year old daughter and my challenge junkie man - they both had a fantastic time and as experts at such activities, they both feel this is the best one yet! Lots of time spent receiving instructions which are vital as the instructors do not go up with you, instead they are occasionally seen on the... More

We went for the Segway and tree top activities. Segways: These things are amazing and faster than they look. The instructors are great and really take the time to make sure you're happy before you head out into the woods. Once you've shown that you're competent and safe they will switch the Segway out of training mode and into fast... More
