Trent Park


Near Cockfosters

Go Ape Trent Park is open Thursday – Sunday in November.

An Adventure just 10 minutes walk from Cockfosters tube station (Piccadilly Line).

Our Tree Top Adventure near London is nestled in acres of beautiful woodland and just a stones throw from the capital. The park is ideal for family adventure days out in London or within easy access of Essex and Middlesex. Take in the views from the trees and share some amazing adventure memories with your tribe, taking on Tarzan Swings, high ropes and an epic zip wire. Oh, and did we mention Trent Park is home to one of our epic Skateboard Zips.

At the weekends you’ll need to allow about 3 – 4 hours to enjoy our adventure at Trent Park. For exact time please check our ‘opening times’ below. And once you’ve booked, make sure you check our ‘get directions’ before you set off.

Double the fun at Trent Park Go Ape. We’ve just unveiled our brand NEW twin course – a first for Go Ape! As a customer, it will not effect you – you’ll still experience our 2 – 3 hour Tree Top Adventure. You’ll probably want to come back to sample the other course at Trent Park another time!

And just so you know your nearest Forest Segway adventure is Black Park Country Park.

Please note. Our 2015 prices are: Tree Top Adventure, £33 Adults (16+), £25 Children (10 – 15 year olds).

Rated 5 Bananas Jemma - Tree Top Adventure, on 21 November 2014
I took my friend to Go Ape Trent Park for her 21st birthday and now I understand why she was so excited to go - it was a fantastic day out and I would recommend it to anyone. I'm not a big fan of heights but I completed the course (twice!) and even conquered the extreme parts of the sites. Aaron was so friendly and motivational - he made our experience that little bit more special and despite Tom not being our group leader he was very encouraging and helpful. Thank you so much for one of the best day experiences I've had! & I'm sure I'll see you all again soon. Love, the smiling pair, Jemma and Lily x
Rated 5 Bananas John - Tree Top Adventure, on 21 November 2014
Having previously completed the Go Ape course at Leeds Castle I wanted to try another closer to home. Well, I wasn't disappointed. Trent Park has four zip wires, higher obstacles to conquer and overall a more challenging course than before. I believe going mid week and booking the first slot at 11am was a definite advantage as there were only three in our group, which meant there was no hanging around waiting for more people as had previously been the criticism on other reviews. I would highly recommend this activity to anyone including couples with children aged 10 and over as this enables you to supervise your child by going round with them. What a perfect excuse to try it again!!

Good fun, gets children and friends out in the fresh air, doing something different
Rated 5 Bananas Ian - , on 17 November 2014
As usual it was great fun, the zip wires and cargo net swing are the best. It was however, a little crowded and there was a lot of time spent "hanging about" ;no pun intended at bottle necks on the course where the Left and Right courses join, waiting for slower parties or individuals to move on. Normally takes us about an hour and half to complete the course but took over two hours this time, plus of course the half hour briefing. Pity there isn't a way to bypass the bottle necks, or to complete sections of the course in a different order. However, this is a good course and everyone including the staff was friendly and made it an enjoyable Sunday afternoon.
Rated 5 Bananas Alexandra - Tree Top Adventure, on 17 November 2014
The staff were very friendly, there was a good safety briefing and it was a good idea having the instructor on the first course and leading us onto the second course. The 5 courses were really good, I am a 21 year old and found it really fun, scary at times. Not as scary for my boyfriend but he did find it still and great day and like the tarzan swing on course 5.
