Challenge Plus

Push your limits further than ever with Go Ape's newest and most demanding high ropes adventure, Challenge Plus.

This new activity is a dialled-up version of Treetop Challenge that will test your mental grit and physical boundaries. It features three new sites of crossings, including Mind The Gap, Wrecking Balls and Hanging Anchors. Negotiating the tree-to-tree crossings will require balance, nerve and support from your Tribe as you'll be high above the forest canopy tackling demanding obstacles.

Your reward at the end of each site? The super-fast, super-long, super-exhilarating zip wires that'll bring you back down to the ground.

Go on, grab your mates, and get ready for our biggest adventure in the great outdoors. 

Challenge Plus is a physically demanding activity and requires a good level of fitness and strength.

You have questions, and we have answers. Find answers to all of the most commonly (and uncommonly) asked questions about Challenge Plus here.

What is Challenge Plus?

Challenge Plus is the newest and hardest Go Ape high ropes adventure to date. It's a dialled-up version of Treetop Challenge, with new crossings that are designed to push you and your Tribe to your limits. 

How does it differ from Treetop Challenge?

Challenge Plus is a more demanding experience than Treetop Challenge because of the course's new and adapted dynamic obstacles. They're designed to push you further than before. Some crossings will require you to jump from one to another, and others will be at irregular heights.

Can children do Challenge Plus?

Yes, children over the age of 10 and 1.4 meters tall can take part in Challenge Plus. 

What is the supervision ratio for Challenge Plus?

The supervision ratio for Challenge Plus is one adult to one child.

Will Challenge Plus be too hard for children?

Each child has different abilities and confidence levels, so it is impossible to say whether Challenge Plus will be too hard for a particular child. However, as a general rule, we recommend that children who are less confident try Treetop Challenge before graduating to Challenge Plus.

What if I can't assist my child on the course? 

An instructor will be patrolling the area and will assist when needed. 

What is included in the experience?

As with all Go Ape adventures, the experience begins with a thorough safety briefing from a trained instructor. You will then complete the training exercise (site 1), before stepping it up at site 2 which is part of the Treetop Challenge course. Sites 3, 4 and 5 are the brand new Challenge Plus sections.

Is it hard?

Challenge Plus will push you more physically and mentally than ever before but will be extra rewarding too. You should be able to conquer one so long as you're reasonably fit and healthy.

What crossings are on the course?

Each Challenge Plus course is unique and individual to each location, but each course will have three new sites of exciting and dynamic crossings.

    We visited for the Treetop Adventure today. My 7 year old daughter managed both challenges with no worries or fear. My 9 year old nephew was very apprehensive, wary and cautious. He managed the first challenge really well and completed the zip line. When he got to the top of the second challenge his nerves kicked in and got the better of him. One of the amazing staff members Max stepped straight in and went up to have a chat with him. Max was great and rather than talk my nephew down he managed to guide him through the challenge. His support and encouraging chats got him all the way round the challenge. My nephew is over the moon he managed to complete it and did the zip line twice too. Just want to give Max and the team on shift today a huge shout out. Thank you all so much, you were great! We would highly recommend Go Ape Dalby. It was a fantastic day.

    This is the 1st time with family outdoor with my son and his age is 11. We had a great fun and adventures. We loved it. Will definitely make my calender booked for next time and more. I really enjoyed and playing. The guy named SEB at Sherwood was very friendly and cleared all my son doubt. He explained each and every thing regarding the safety and how to handle. Special thanks to him and his team. All staffs are good with their smiley faces. I strongly recommend who ever needs to relax and get their physical build and get motivated by yourself with different level of challenges. I could write more pages..... But in one word. I loved it. I will recommend to my friends and families members. I shall come along with them. Haahhaha

    Went to go ape today at mallards pike Forest of Dean to do the tree top challenge. I was part of the 11am booking my name is Rose. The two fellas that were supporting us how to do the challenge were amazing! I struggled from the start, but every so often they would shout out encouragement and offering support. I really felt like I couldn’t do it , but my family and their support I completed it. These guys made the entire experience better, for that I’m truly thankful. Sorry I can’t remember their names
