My overall experience was better than predicted. I was a little nervous about the heights before I arrived but the guide made me feel really comfortable (there is a small initial exploration exercise for learning to attach your lines). The obstacles were varied enough, and just complex enough to keep me distracted from the heights, give me enough time to appreciate the surrounding canopy and try to recall a few latin names, and provide an experience that really allowed for stress release, a little exercise, and pure enjoyment. At several points there are options for easier or more difficult crossings. All are fun! Really want to try the course in DE so I can zipline over water!

My friend and I spent 3 hours at Go Ape in Rockville Maryland and had a blast! We had both zip-lined before under full assist conditions. On this course, you are instructed on how to safely tether, lock, climb, etc before starting, and then you are on our own. If you enjoy this type of technical work (and are motivated to listen carefully to the excellent instructors), then this is for you. The course itself was fun and challenging. Lots of zany walking bridges and lots of upper body work. e.g. you have to climb rope ladders to get to the tree tops and you have to climb out of the Tarzan nets (wahoo!). It was a very cold, windy, day in November, so the course was not crowded, thankfully. But it would have been terrible to wait behind lines of people. Because NO ONE should rush this course (stay safe!). But you also shouldn't have to get stuck behind someone terrified or unable to do the necessary climb. We reserved ahead- great staff. Thanks!

Hi there,

Thanks for sharing your feedback. It sounds like you had a good time up in the trees! Yes, gloves are not required to participate safely but are encouraged for participants that would prefer some hand protection. We recommend gloves that have a reinforced palm and half-fingers to retain dexterity. Hopefully, you can join us again!

Cheers,
JK

By far the best tree top adventure that we have done. Took 5 of us, 2 60+, ~3hours. All types of obstacles from zip lines to Tarzan swings, even a skate board.)

What great time I had with my son and his friend. The tree top adventure can be a challenge for people scared of heights, but the staff is very helpful and preaches safety. A great adventure for the day.

This is a GEM of a good time if you have a Saturday or Sunday where you’re trying to plan outdoor activities - so much fun!

Our guides made everything so easy and safe, you get to go at your own pace, and it’s a BLAST the whole time

Basically there at 6 courses you go through, each with a few hard and easy options you have to bipass - from swinging like Tarzan, zip lining through the trees, and going through some pretty entertaining obstacle courses IN THE TREES UP HIGH, the thrills don’t end !!

So worth every penny, it’s a half day activity, and you get to hook yourself in and go at your own pace, slow fast etc

Only thing: DO NOT GO ON A HOT DAY! If it’s very hot, this won’t be a good time, I went on a 85 degree day and I was sweating, if it was 95 or something, I would have definitely not had as much fun since this is physically challenging
