Treetop Challenge

Pick the wild card, swap the weekend sports game for a whole new challenge that is sure to test everyone with a visit to the high ropes in Cumbria. Begin with the relative ease of Grandpop’s and let your competitive side build up to a finish on the skidding Shuffle – a task that will require you to use all your strength and balance. If our tricky crossings aren’t quite enough to satisfy the urge for a breath-taking experience, you’re sure to be thrilled by a ride on the formidable Tarzan Swing -  enough for any adrenaline junkie!

practical information

  • It’s a thrill going to Go Ape anywhere at any time but I have to say I was impressed having booked Whinlatter to receive an email advising of road problems going over the pass and clear directions were given how to get there. As always staff were welcoming and helpful and the route is all in excellent order. Might be an idea to introduce OAP rates to encourage us oldies to go when we don’t have the excuse to bring our grandchildren! Great fun....

  • Such a fantastic day - having previously been ‘rescued’ from a tree top platform in another area, I was looking to conquer my fear and our instructor Steven totally helped with this and was fantastic at explaining the safety features and layout of the course - he was nearby throughout providing encouragement and reassurance - in particular, the training session at the beginning of the course was vital in giving me the confidence to complete the course. I would highly recommend to friends and family and will be aiming myself to conquer a different Go Ape course in the future :)

  • I had a great time with Go Ape, Whinlatter. The staff were fantastic and explained everything really well. They also kept an eye on everyone from the ground, which helped me, as I was with my two children and trying to keep up! They didn't let them go too far ahead! The course was great and I loved the Tarzan swing. The only reason I haven't given 5 stars is that we had to wait around 20 minutes beyond our 'slot' before being given harnesses and a talk about what to do - I think this was due to a large group ahead of us. It was a particularly cold and windy day and I was shivering (from cold!) before starting. I would absolutely go again and we all have our certificates proudly displayed at home now! Thanks Go Ape :-)

  • I got this for my husband for our anniversary not realising just how scared of heights he was. He tried the first part but really wasn't enjoying it and the staff were great and told him not to worry and gave us a full refund without hesitation! Shame we didn't get round it but it was very well managed and looked great!

  • Great location! Got to see my first red squirrel! It was raining when we went but it didn’t put us off. It was easy to follow after the instructions at the beginning. . Lots of zip wires whcih we loved! We didn’t stop laughing! Recommend to anyone !
