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

  • 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 really enjoyed the Tree Top Challenge with our two children who are 11 & 13 years. They made it look easy us adults just kept up. The staff were friendly & let you go round at your own pace. Good variety of activities & fantastic zip wires in a beautiful surroundings of Coombe Abbey. I would recommend it & will be returning again.


  • We had a great time at Coombe Abbey Go Ape. The staff were brilliant, enthusiastic and friendly. The course is great fun, challenging and varied.


  • We had a great time at Coombe Abbey Go Ape. The staff are great very friendly and helpful. The safety briefing is very thorough and they are always watching to make sure you are safe.


  • We went to the Go Ape in Coventry. It was absolutely gorgeous and the staff were wonderful. I was quite scared, but the lady who helped us was extremely helpful, and helped me face my fears. By the end we felt a lot more confident. Really beautiful location, great challenge. We did get a little bit hungry, so maybe take snacks.


  • My 2 children and I went to the Coventry GO Ape location and had a great time. The location is lovely and the staff although young are motivated, friendly and professional. Never felt unsafe and their procedures are spot on. Top class !
