“Amazing afternoon out with loads of fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2012 via mobile

Go Ape has many locations in UK but this is the only place I have been to. The place is very good value for many and gives very good introduction and training to feel every one comfortable. Also they start out the course with simple high ropes and zip lines for a taste before doing the difficult ones. Once you finish few of the ropes and lines you are on your own as they tell you exactly what to do and how to follow. Also they put you in pair to watch for each other. Me and my brother went to this place and he is slightly nervous about heights and such stuff but he was eventually very comfortable. Very thrilling and suitable for all ages (minimum height applies)

“Letting go of your fears!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2012 via mobile

Had an amazing time recently at go ape. Very well trained instructors who were reassuring when needed at the beginning of the course. The course itself is challenging, more mentally than physically for me but you may feel different! Lots of zip wires, challenging passes, and relying on your harness!

An amazing few hours was had by me and my partner, we will be back!

“Challenging trip through the trees”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2012

We booked this as a 'last day of holiday' adventure. The children were aged 12-17 and we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The instructors were excellent and took us through the safety procedures in detail. We were all competent with the equipment quickly. We were then left to proceed at our own pace reassured by the fact that an instructor was close at hand if needed
There were some testing rope walks which kept the adrenalin pumping! It took almost three hours to complete the course - plenty of zip wires to get you whizzing through the trees. A great day out for all. Highly recommended
