Enjoy Tree Top Adventure, Tree Top Junior and our Segway Adventure in Nottinghamshire.

Our Tree Top Junior will remain open during the weekends in December and January - don’t forget a pair of gloves!

Just 20 miles from Nottingham. Our Tree Top Adventure in Robin Hood country features a tree to tree zip wire (one of the only tree top tree zip wires in the country!) We like to think these are the special Go Ape ingredient that makes the outdoor adventure at Sherwood Pines great for unique days out near Nottingham.

You can swing through our forest and get the best views over 3000 acres of woodland - A great place to escape and enjoy epic outdoor adventure activities in the forest.

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 segway experience near Nottingham with a down to earth twist.

And Sherwood Pines is also home to our Tree Top Junior Adventure for Mini Tarzans. Release your little monkeys onto a Go Ape course designed for them. No one loves adventure more than kids!

Please note. Our 2015 prices are: Tree Top Adventure, £31 Adults (16+), £25 Children (10 – 15 year olds). Tree Top Junior, £18 per Tarzan. Forest Segway, £40 per rider.

Feedback from Sherwood Pines

Take a look at what some of our tribe have said about their time in the forest. It’s always good to hear it straight from the Gorilla’s mouth (…and we’re proud to say it’s totally unedited!) And why not have a peek at what people are saying about us on Trip Advisor.

Rated 5 Bananas julie - Forest Segway, on 21 October 2014
Loved whizzing through the forest trails on the segway instead of being restricted to a track or circuit. An exhilirating adventure :)

Brought my daughter and her friend for her 11th birthday! They can't wait to come again! Their favourite part was the leap of faith!

Rated 5 Bananas Linzi - Tree Top Junior, on 20 October 2014
Booked for my daughters 7th birthday party with group of 8 friends in total. Overall they had a fabulous time despite some jelly wobbles from some of them, we needed an instructor to help one of them continue the loop they were on, and lots of shouting & encouragement to a couple of the other children. But when they finished, they were all very pleased with what they had achieved. We had also hired the shelter which proved a huge success to feed the kids and the adults have hot drinks - much easier than trying to find a suitable spot amongst the mass public. Overall experience - top marks :o).Only criticism (?) was that whilst our group followed the rules of only 2 on a bridge, and 3 to a platform, other groups didn't follow the rules, and it therefore at times there was the bottle neck effect - it would have been useful for at least 1 of the instructors to keep an eye on the course as a whole to check this wasn't happening.We also felt that (although there were only 3 out of 8 that really struggled some of it) it might have been useful for all children to have a trial at 1 bridge on a much lower wire where the kids could experience falling off a bridge to realise that if this happened they were very safe and wouldn't fall?, because at the end of the day this was their biggest fear. Just an idea.

My daughter gave me and her dad gift vouchers for birthday and Mother's Day ,and her and her sister wanted to come with us ,when we got to go ape a group of people was already there and I was getting more and more scared of the event .we went through the health and safety exercise and if we was happy we could go on ,if not we could have a refund which is what I thought I would be having ,I had an amazing day and achieved so much as we all did but I suffer with vertigo so I was so pleased that I carried on ,if anyone is worried about going you will be surprised I was I LOVED IT GO APE
