May Half Term Activities

Adventure awaits this half term

outdoor activities for kids this May half term


If you’re considering activities for half term, and a day out is on the agenda, then a day outdoors packed full of tree top fun at Go Ape is what you’re after.

There are over 30 Go Ape locations across the UK, and at each you’ll find a selection of half term activities, just waiting to fill your half term break with adventure.

Adventure awaits, it’s time to get out there and let the youngsters burn off some energy. We’re ready, are you?


Treetop Adventure

Minimum Participant Requirement: 1m tall

Great for all children but especially younger ones as this activity is available to anyone over 1m tall. Tackle tree-to-tree crossings on 2-3 different loops with a zip wire to bring you back down onto the forest floor at the end of each loop.

Treetop Adventure Plus

Minimum Participant Requirement: 6 years old & 1.2m tall

A step up from Treetop Adventure, so children need to be at least 1.2m and 6 years old to participate. Get ready and raring for more height, speed and wobble with this half term day out! Some Go Ape locations feature Treetop Adventure Plus as an extension to the Treetop Adventure experience, at others it's a standalone activity.

Treetop Challenge is the biggie. 1-3 hours of fun in the trees with crossings, Tarzan Swings and epic zip wires across five different sites that progress in difficulty as you go.

Nets Adventure

Minimum Participant Requirement: 1 years old and must be able to walk unaided

Nets Adventure is the perfect experience for bouncing enthusiasts after something fun to do this half term. Leap for the sky in massive, springy suspended nets and make a wish on a falling leaf. If you’re feeling energetic, play dodgeball or invent your own game with the inflatable balls.
