What’s your favourite forest mode of transport? A Go Ape instructor would shout, a Zip wire! Zip wires are a major part of all our treetop adventures:


Treetop Challenge

Treetop Challenge is where to head if you want to test yourself physically and mentally on our most adventurous treetop trek. A mecca for thrill-seekers who love canopy high tree-to-trees crossings, free-fall Tarzan Swings and, yes, riding super-fast, very long zips. You will find Treetop Challenge at 34 of our 35 locations.


Zip Line Experience

If you’re looking for zips, zips and more zips then our Zip Line Experience is the one for you. Available at Go Ape Aberdeen and Go Ape Aberfoyle.


Zip Trekking Adventure

Never could be a name be more apt. Zip. Trekking. Adventure. The ultimate zip wire experience at Go Ape Grizedale will have you whizzing through the heart of the Lake District, flying across seven forest zip lines totalling a whopping 3km.


So if you’re looking for the biggest and fastest zip wires Go Ape has to offer but unsure which one to book next then read this handy guide featuring some of our favourite zip wires across the UK.
