An Alternative Stag Or Hen DO

Back in June we had the privilege of hosting our first-ever Go Ape wedding.


Martyn Milner and Colette Gregory took their romance to new heights and exchanged vows in the tree-tops of Aberfoyle, in the heart of Scotland's beautiful Loch Lomond.

Go Ape isn't your average wedding venue but hey, who wants 'average' on their wedding day?! However, before you start planning the big day, there's another (very) important event that needs to be sorted out: the stag or hen do.

If you have been awarded the task of organising one of your mate's stag or hen do, or indeed your own stag or hen do, then your first job is to decide what it is you want to do (choosing the silly fancy dress outfits comes later.)

We have a suggestion for you: instead of the hen or stag do being a night you can't remember, why not make it a day you will never forget?!

Forget a bog-standard night on the town; our award-winning Tree Top Adventure courses are the perfect hen or stag do activity. Wave goodbye to your final few days of freedom by unleashing your inner Tarzan and swinging through the trees with your buds!

After getting harnessed-up and briefed by one of the Go Ape team, you'll all clamber up into the trees for 2-3 hours of monkeying around. You'll take on all sorts of obstacles, from ladders and bridges to crazy crossings and zip wires.

Let's not forget the notorious Tarzan Swing - it's only fair that you let the bride or groom-to-be take the leap of faith first, right?

Equip one of the Go Ape tribe with a camera and they'll be more than happy to take a few snaps as mementos of your adventure. Including photos of your priceless expressions seconds before you leap off the Tarzan Swing platform:


Fancy dress isn't obligatory, but we highly recommend it. And if you want to be fitting with the surroundings, then make sure your attire is forest-themed - rabbits, fairies, lumberjacks, for example. Tarzan and Jane is an obvious choice; however, if you plan to dress up as the king of the jungle then we do advise wearing more than a leopard print loincloth. You still need to wear clothing that's suitable for the course.

If you really want to make the most of your Go Ape experience, then you can always combine a Tree Top Adventure with our Forest Segways. You and your mates will be free to roam the forest floor aboard our all-terrain Segways for a full hour a perfect way to end your day.

Go Ape isn't just for thrill-seekers, adrenaline junkies and adventure lovers; it's for anyone who dares to be different! We guarantee that a day spent in the forest with your best friends will be the ultimate single life send off.

So go on, say "I do! to having your stag or hen party at Go Ape! Find out more here.
