Wyre Forest


Near Kidderminster

Tree Top Adventure and Tree Top Junior set within one of Britain’s Largest Remaining Ancient Forests.

Half the species of UK butterflies and moths can be found in our forest in Worcestershire.

Our Tree Top Adventure at Wyre Forest, near Kidderminster is home to some of the most significant woodlands in England. Go Ape offers two to three hours of fun and adventure. It’s a great way to get outdoors and try some a little bit unique. We take one lush, green forest and a healthy dollop of breathtaking scenery. Then we add a smattering of tree top high wire, tricky crossings and unforgettable zip wires.

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

If you’re looking for days out in Worcestershire, why not get in the Go Ape spirit in one of Britain’s largest remaining ancient woodlands? Wyre Forest is cared for by the Forestry Commission so there’s plenty of other activities for you and your tribe if you’re trying to find things to do near Worcester.

You can take in the sights and smells of the statuesque oak and fir trees that line the course for great days out, or even make a adventurous weekend of it and explore the 6000-acre forest.

Don’t forget to enjoy a cuppa in our very own Forest Cafe.

The staff were very encouraging when people got worried on some of the obstacles. The whole experience was great for the whole family. My wife lost her guardian angel and one of the staff found it, so they were reunited which was great!!

I went with my 7 year old daughter who became very scared and frightened on the second course.A wonderful and very helpful member of staff came to our rescue and helped calm down a very distraught girl and helped her through the last part of the course.I would like to thank Matt for all his help and professional approach while dealing with my distraught,sobbing,scared daughter.Matt got my beautiful girl to the end and without his help we would have been up there waiting for the fire brigade or a miracle.Thank you Matt ,from a thankful father and daughter.

Absolutely loved the zip wires, enthusiasm of staff encouraging you as you went around the corse. Great way to bond differently with friends. Absolutely loved the whole thing start to finish, wanted to go round again straight away!
Rated 5 Bananas David - Tree Top Adventure, on 29 May 2015
Tough times at the moment going through a divorce. As a treat this half term for my beautiful daughter Lydia (11), it was either Go Ape, or Go Carting. I should have taken the 'Blue' Pill !! OMG. I'm petrified of heights anyway! Fearlessly Lydia jumped, bounded and zip-wired herself around the course for 3 hours. Looking back at daddy trembling on every section 'let's go the extreme route' [daddy wincing] 'ok darling',...laughing at me wetting my pants and screaming like a girl. For the first time in 9 months of current divorce court proceedings, I forgot all about it for 3 hours.Brilliant! And We can't wait to do it again in the next half term. The Go Ape team were fantastic.Thank you for making a grown man cry! and for him to enjoy an unforgettable moment with his beautiful daughter.Kindest RegardsMr David Fisher

Loved it all particularly the zip wires back to solid ground! I brought my daughter and her mate aged 11 and 10; they absolutely loved it and showed absolutely no fear! One of my favourite bits was seeing various Mums and Dads bricking themselves before leaping into open air! A real hoot!
