Wyre Forest


Near Kidderminster

Set within one of Britain’s Largest Remaining Ancient Forests.

NEW Tree Top Junior Now Open.

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 ecologically 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.

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.

“Oo oo ah ah” …  Don’t forget to enjoy a cuppa in our very own Forest Cafe.

Rated 5 Bananas Helen - Tree Top Adventure, on 1 September 2014
Really enjoyed the course. I was slightly less scared than my previous time. LOVE the zip wires!
Rated 5 Bananas Eleanor - Tree Top Junior, on 1 September 2014
The start was slow- we were booked for 12.45 but didn't get onto the course until 1.10. The course was great and the staff were excellent. I didn't give full marks for the course experience because there were quite young kids ahead of us on courses 2 and 3 and we spent most of half an hour standing on platforms or in the middle of a feature waiting. That's tough for 5 and 7 year olds and it definitely meant our exoperience wasn't as good as it could be. The staff were excellent and they let us go round again, but the last time we went, at Black Park, we got to race around many times and it felt like a better experience, even though Wyre was a more exciting course. So we only got to do 1,2&3 then 1 again and then we had to hit the road for a long drive to London. If we hadn't had that drive I would have asked if we could go round again because I didn't feel we got our money's worth in the same way that we have had on our previous visits to Black Park.

Really enjoyed the Junior Go Ape experience, the staff were excellent, really helpful and very pleasant to deal with . Overall a great afternoon of fun.
Rated 5 Bananas Laura - Forest Segway, on 1 September 2014
Really enjoyed the parts where it wasn't too strenuous (ie. The Tarzan Swings, Zip Wires were easy to sit back and enjoy the thrill, whereas the wobbly bridges, and rings required some arm strength to keep steady) It wasn't until half way round the course I realised that some of the bridges demonstration sheets attached to the trees showed a figure using no arms - I wish I'd have tried this earlier on and built confidence rather than leaving it till the end. It was frustrating that the family ahead waited at the platform till they had all finished one crossing rather than going on to the next in an orderly manner. This caused quite a backlog of a queue behind us. Overall I was glad the activity lasted 3 hours, was good fun in the fresh air of the forest. Marketing Recommendation: Have a photographer up the course and the option to purchase photos from the booth?!

My 5 year old daughter was very brave and loved it!
