Overview

It’s not in the dictionary, but if it was, Go Ape would be described as a ‘tree top adventure’.That means we build giant obstacle courses up in the trees using ladders, walkways, bridges and tunnels made of wood, rope and super-strong wire, and top it all off with the world's best zip lines.We then equip people with harnesses, pulleys and carabiners, give them a 30 minute safety briefing and training and let them loose into the forest canopy, free to swing through the trees. Of course, instructors are always on hand, regularly patrolling the forests (not in monkey suits unfortunately!)The result is spectacular. The Go Ape experience gets the adrenalin pumping, gets people out of their comfort zones and above all (no pun intended), it’s just great fun.

Go ape is a very nice ropes course and very well run. I gave it 4 stars because having been there twice and used the more difficult path both times, there wasn't a lot of thrill in it the second time.

A fantastic outing with a great emphasis on instruction and safety provided by a well trained staff. Wear clothes you don't mind getting a little dirt on, and that can breathe.

Hi, The course is a 5 minute drive from Shady Grove metro station. We would suggest taking the metro there but you would need a cab and/or uber to get to the course. Thanks!
