Wyre Forest

(Worcestershire)

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.

Rated 5 Bananas Chris - Tree Top Junior, on 2 March 2015
Matt and his team provided a welcoming reception to both groups of 8. Safety procedures and rules of play were swiftly established with a seemless transition into participation and fun. The various skills and confidence levels of the girls were appreciated, with greater freedom extended to those most able whilst extra care & encouragement was given to those in need. The team genuinely wanted all the children to have a great time and this was certainly achieved. All the kids expressed a positive desire to visit again and in the case of the 10yr olds, ambition to transfer to the main course next time. A BIG thank you to all the Go Ape team for providing a supportive and fun experience to all - an excellent adventure, which we'd have no hesitation in recommending to others !!
Rated 5 Bananas Carly - Tree Top Junior, on 2 March 2015
I decided to navigate the Tree Top Junior Course with a group of ladies as part of my 'Hen-Do-Day'! It was truly fantastic! I am glad that I didn't opt for the 'Adult' course as I can assure you that it was more than enough to raise the pulse! The staff were extremely professional and fun, whilst always ensuring that safety came first. I am the mother of 3 boys aged 3, 6 & 9. I would certainly return again with my older two (just to show them how it's done of course!) and I would recommend it to all other parents, with or without your children! It was honestly great value for money and an unforgettable experience.
Rated 5 Bananas Sian - Tree Top Adventure, on 1 March 2015
Staff were really helpful and let us go on a later time. My only criticism is that during the safety brief I feel that the instructor should have done the demonstration first and then let everyone have a turn instead of doing it the other way round. For some people who hadn't been to a go ape before this would have been beneficial.
