Wyre Forest

(Worcestershire)

Near Kidderminster

Set within one of Britain’s Largest Remaining Ancient Forests. NEW Tree Top Junior.

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.

Please note. Our 2015 prices are: Tree Top Adventure, £31 Adults (16+), £25 Children (10 – 15 year olds). Tree Top Junior £18 Per Tarzan.

Going banana's about Go Ape :)

I wish we had a challenge attached to each tree so if you wanted to make it harder you could!
Rated 5 Bananas James - Tree Top Adventure, on 21 October 2014
I enjoyed the zip wire & the Tarzan rope I felt segregated from friends as you can't all do things at the same time. It would be good if there were options of two bridges or activities side by side so that you could experience things together like two zip wires so you could see who lands first. Or have challenges like no hands to liven things up. I like the experience but not challenging enough for me.
Rated 5 Bananas Daniel - Tree Top Adventure, on 21 October 2014
The safety brief by our instructor Michelle was excellent and clear, the test on ground level I think is perfect way to practise attaching your safety lines and to show you how easy it is to complete this but also how easily mistakes can be made!Safety was the key everywhere, with subtle hints everywhere but in my eyes it's wasn't an over the top ' safety is the key' which I found good!The course was fantastic and on a misty Monday morning it was even better as me and my partner were by ourselves completing the course in more or less silence which was enjoyable! The team at the wyre were excellent! And hope they know how great they made the experienceDaniel and Katie

A cracking family team experience...Scotty the instructor was spot on...combined the serious safety stuff with humour giving our visit the personal touch...looked after us throughout without being intrusive. Zip wires were the best!!
