Know Before You Go

What should I wear?

We suggest that you wear something you don’t mind getting grubby. Dress for the weather, so bring along a mac if it’s raining! Make sure your stomach area is covered. Please wear appropriate footwear with soles with good grips. No sandals or slip-off shoes. You’ll need closed toe and heel shoes (with flat soles). Long hair must be tied back.

When do I need to arrive?

Make your way to the Go Ape cabin and be ready to get going on your Go Ape adventure at your booked time. Late arrivals that miss their session will be charged at full price.

Can I bring a camera?

Phones and cameras are permitted, as long as they always stay attached to the participant. Lanyards are available to buy from the cabin, subject to availability.

Know Before You Go

When do I need to arrive?

Make your way to the Go Ape cabin and be ready to get going on your Go Ape adventure at your booked time. Late arrivals that miss their session will be charged at full price.

What is Tree Top Junior?

It’s a fun filled hour of canopy exploring, trail blazing and obstacles for all to enjoy. You’ll negotiate crossings and finish on a high (literally) with one awesome zip wire.

Can I go on as an adult?

If you want to join your little monkeys then just book yourself on. Bear in mind the course is designed for children so the safety cable won’t be quite where you'd like it.

Are there toilets?

Yes there will be, but they may be a little walk from the Go Ape cabin. Please allow some extra time for a toilet stop!

TREE TOP JUNIOR, Moors Valley

I took my 5 year old son on the course and we had an amazing time. Seeing the change in confidence over the course of an hour was amazing. He didn't want to leave. No real gripes, maybe make the courses a bit longer or add a third course.

TREE TOP ADVENTURE, Black Park

I have scored the safety brief lowly because Zane(?) seemed to be quiet irritated by the customers and didn't have any patience. I did not find him at all welcoming. I found it difficult to understand what he was saying because he didn't open his mouth properly to speak. He was very off-putting and it made me wonder if I would enjoy my experience. I do not think it is customer friendly to be charging people 7p a minute if they should need to call for information, especially as the Go Ape experience is quiet expensive in the first place.

The overall experience was amazing, especially the zip wires. The final Tarzan net really tested my courage - not sure how courageous I was, I screamed like a banshee! Great experience, would highly recommend it!

TREE TOP ADVENTURE, Thetford Forest

This was something I had talked about for quite a while I wanted to experience, so to bought it for my birthday was a great idea as it was something I probably would have kept putting off as not a priority for myself. The day itself was fantastic, and helped by great weather. We was welcomed very cheerfully and told what was going to happen for our visit and taken to meet our safety instructor Beth, who was very knowledgeable and kept the briefing fun but making sure everyone was aware of the seriousness of what we was taking part in. Although the experience didn't last nearly long enough I think the same could be said with anything when you are having so much fun. We did find the information slightly misleading where it said that there was 5 different courses, when in fact the first course was the training course, but we still loved every minute of it. The only things we could raise issue with was the cost of the parking, which at £11.00+ for just over 4 hours we thought was rather step. Also upon visiting the café to get a drink it was very clear that there was not enough staff working that day to meet demand, as the queues were very long and the shelves almost empty. It appeared little consideration had been given to the warm weather and the amount of people potentially visiting that day.

sadly my nephew lost his sun glasses (value of £100 plus significant sentiment) in the course of his adventure. he left them in his coat in the locker room. whilst we acknowledge that you can't take responsibility for such a loss, it was a sad ending to a great day. Could further consideration be given to keeping personal items safer whilst people are out? he couldn't have left them elsewhere as we were all out on an adventure.
