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.

Rated 5 Bananas Kayleigh - Tree Top Adventure, on 4 August 2015
I was a bit apprehensive when I turned up at Go Ape, as I had never been to anything like it before and I was waiting on my own for my friend to arrive (she got stuck in traffic and arrived 5 minutes before our start time! So I was a little bit on edge). It was nice that a member of staff smiled as they walked past me whilst I was waiting. I know it's a small gesture, but it's nice that the company has friendly staff and it instantly makes you feel at ease! The safety briefing was great, I was concerned that it would be confusing and that I would find it difficult to attach the safety lines and move from platform to platform. I was incredibly relieved that our instructor Megan, gave a clear, concise presentation about how the safety equipment worked and how to ensure our safety around the course. This made me feel so confident, that I even had the courage to go first in the group and ended up going first on the zip wire! She was very patient, even though it was a big group of people, she was ensuring that people were practising safely whilst also helping adjust my harness. She explained that it may be a bit uncomfortable as it can be quite tight, but I said I was more than happy to have it as tight as possible, as I didn't want to fall out! She is a highly efficient member of staff and an asset to the organisation. I felt she was approachable and friendly, which is very important when you are undertaking such a high risk activity, that you feel you can ask questions without fear of embarrassment! Once my friend and I got up and running I surprised myself at how confident I became and I think this is down to Go Ape being so safety conscious and the friendly staff that I came into contact with. I never thought I would do anything like zip lines or obstacles high up in tree tops! But I really enjoyed it and I know my friend thoroughly enjoyed it too, it was the perfect day to unwind and de stress! I would recommend it to anyone who really wants to let their hair down. I found that all of the other customers on the course were very friendly and no one was pushy or insensitive to other people. I was a little worried that I may feel pressured to go through the course quickly, but everyone was happy and talkative. Again, I think this is down to the staff encouraging a happy ethos by being so friendly and positive. Thank you Go Ape Wyre for an awesome day! :) I'm sure I'll be back very soon!

Safety was excellent and the courses were exciting and challenging. We didn't have to wait long on platforms and the water points were much appreciated.

The fact that you can go around the course as many times as possible within your hour is excellent value for money!
