Near Nottingham

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.

Rated 5 Bananas Ben - Tree Top Adventure, on 24 October 2014
Awesome day out in the trees, the location, staff and course were all brilliant. The experience of jumping, swinging, zipping, teetering and crawling all in mid air is exhilarating and leaves a superb impression. Least favourite part was the end - mainly because we had no more course to carry on our adventure with :( Will definitely be visiting GoApe again in the future, thanks very much.
Rated 5 Bananas ANDREW - Tree Top Adventure, on 24 October 2014
An awesome experience. I took my daughter who turned 10 on the day we came. She has been waiting to do this since she was 5 years old! She was only just tall enough and was a bit unsure at first but when she knew she was safe by always having one line attached to the tree she was fine and could enjoy the day. Our favourite bits were the tarzan swings and zip wires. When we got to the last zip wire my daughter cried as she didn't want it to end. I promised to take her again next time to Cannock Chase!
Rated 5 Bananas Alan - Tree Top Junior, on 23 October 2014
Extremely well organised and frendly crew, both on the ground and up the trees. First rate equipment and course. Some wobbly legs, but with professional encourage from above and below, great fun had. Will be returning again with both my lads, (10 & 12), in the near future.Thanks for a great day.
Rated 5 Bananas anita - Tree Top Adventure, on 23 October 2014
We have the most amazing time, booked for my daughters 11th birthday, 8 of us including 3 children aged between 11 and 13 enjoyed three hours of real fun in the Sherwood forest tree tops. While some of it was a little scary, all of us without exception would do it again tomorrow.Thank you to Beth, our instructor who made sure we knew what we were doing before we set off on our adventure and to the other instructors along the way, that made sure we were OK.A fantastic experience, and a great time was had by all of us, aged 11 - 49!
