Speed Climbing

Go Ape are celebrating 2020.... we mean 2021 being the summer of sport by launching an exclusive, limited time, Speed Climbing adventure at Go Ape Alexandra Palace.

Speed will be the name of the game as you race a friend up the 9m wall (that's higher than two London double-decker busses) to see who can stop the clock first and be the king or queen of the mountain.

Don't celebrate for too long as you'll then descend to the ground and do it all over again or swap places with one of your group. The maximum group size is 6.

How many times will you and your friends or family manage to make the climb within your 20-minute session? Will your first, second, or third go be your personal best? And who will win the all-important gold medal of bragging rights? 
Spaces are limited so you will need to book as fast as you'll climb!

On your marks, get set, BOOK!

Locations Prices: £10

  • Hi my grandchildren had the most wonderful time at go ape Coombe Abbey, your staff were fantastic approachable young people, my youngest granddaughter who is 11 did struggle with the higher side of the extreme course and two of your staff were on hand Togo up and help her overcome her fears and finish the course they were kind full of encouragement and didn't treat her any differently, we will be back at Easter to tackle the 21/2hr course, thanks again😊👍

  • My family and I had a great afternoon at Go Ape in Coventry at the weekend. The course was challenging, but most enjoyable, and the staff were efficient and pleasant, with Health and Safety being their number 1 priority.


  • Brilliant afternoon at Coventry GoApe. Staff really helpful, great fun had by all. Thoroughly recommend and will be going again 😊


  • Great fun activity & helpful staff.....beware though that car parking at Swinley Forest is a nightmare - was full up so had to drive around for 20 mins to find a spot! Make sure you allow enough time to get parked!!

  • We went to Go Ape at Coombe Abbey for my child's 12 birthday party and the children had a lovely time together. Staff at the desk have been very friendly and helpful. There is plenty of space to enjoy a walk in the woods also after the activities. I will definitely want to try it myself in the near future.


  • My daughter and i really enjoyed our first visit to GoApe Coombe Abbey. Will surely return again.
