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

  • go ape was such a great experience!! challenging urself physically and mentally was soo good and felt super rewarding achieving the different courses and pushing urself out ur comfort zone, cos the adrenaline is crazy paha !! well worth the money, as the amount of time spent there is decent and there’s no pressure to complete the courses within an allotted time at all! parking is dead cheap as well! £2 for 8 hours, the rest of coombe park is gorgeous as well :)) i’d just say that everything needs signposting a lil clearer, which way to go to the loos, which direction to go on the courses in certain areas, where the pay for parking bit is xx 10/10 all the staff are super sweet and friendly too

  • My 9 and 10 year old boys visited Go Ape Coventry on our way home via Birmingham Airport. They did the Adventure plus experience. They had both been to high ropes courses before and found this one to be interesting and challenging. It is set in a lovely country park enabling you to extend your visit beyond the Go Ape experience. I would recommend this to anyone with children who love climbing and being outdoors.


  • We booked in for axe throwing at Go Ape Coventry. Our instructor was Mary and she was fabulous. She was determined to make sure that we all managed to hit to target at least one during our session and she definitely succeeded. Great fun ... thanks!

  • We ABSOLUTELY LOVED our day at Go Ape at Coombe Abbey! As four adults between the ages of 26 and 52, we had never been before and weren't quite sure what to expect, but it was thrilling, challenging and extremely rewarding. I felt completely safe at all times, thanks to the safety briefing at the beginning, and the staff were warm, knowledgeable and reliable. We did the Treetop Challenge which took us around 2 & 1/2 hours, and it was great value for money. We are already planning to return with friends and family to share the experience. Thanks Go Ape for such a wonderful day out! <3

  • Awesome day out. The staff are friendly and clearly very competent. Safety is obviously paramount and the equipment was all in great condition. The Coventry centre is huge and varied. Probably my only criticism is that there’s no food or drink for sale at the Coventry site, although there’s a cafe nearby.

  • Really brilliant family fun day out! Recommend the Go Ape Coombe Abbey location as one of the best. Good value for money we arrived for a 1pm slot and finished around 4.30pm on a busy Saturday. Surprisingly didn't really have to wait on any of the sections except maybe the free fall and the tarzan swing but not for long. Cleverly designed course.
