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!

Fantastic experience for my 9 year old daughter and friend. Great staff which encouraged them over the difficult elements of the course. Only negatives. Drinks facility for parents at the site so that they can still watch the children, as per your rules. More seating areas under the children's course. And i was surprised that there were no helmets worn by the children. Other competitors do supply them as standard. Overall a 10/10 experience, even in the rain.

We all had a great time (2 children aged 10 & * plus me at 33...) on the Junior course at Bracknell. The instructors were friendly and attentive and helped us out, gave us encouragement whenever we needed it. Both children were begging to go again straight after!

TREE TOP JUNIOR, Crawley

Very impressed with how a scared 8-year-old in the party was dealt with. She loved the zip wire but was terrified of the rest. Having pushed her way through the easy course she was ready to unharness, but the staff allowed her to use just the zip wire several times first. Result: one happy little girl who didn't feel left out of my son's birthday party. Thank you.

1. Since the info on your web regarding booking was unclear, I called to double check, unfortunately I was misled and booked an adult to accompany my 14 year old boys which I didn't have to book. £33 in the bin. 2. Since I have 4 children, the 2 younger boys (11 & 8), only enjoyed an hour on the junior and had to wait a further 2 hours for my twin boys & I to finish, they obviously weren't so patient & my husband didn't enjoy this one bit. I think the junior experience should be longer or give them at least another round. It was ridiculous really. 11 & 8 year olds get bored easily and don't spend so much time on the slides. and an hour is just not long enough. 3. It is an expensive experience, definitely worth it for the TreeTop Adventure, but not at all for kids. The party scheme is truly over priced. £18 per child (no discount...) and £42 per child including pizza and soft drink and use of your room?? Pizza Express would be much cheaper. you should revisit your prices and I guarantee your party scheme traffic will triple!
