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.

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 an 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!

Had a great time on the seaways, the guys were very friendly. Our instructor Ellie was really nice and made us feel at ease. we had a great day. I did drop my phone on the way back to the car and lose the photos of us but I guess thats an excuse to come again!

TREE TOP ADVENTURE, Moors Valley

24th September 2016

Great experience with children, could always be a bit longer, we zip around in an hour or so after the safety brief. My 10 year old daughter loved it. It's a touch on the pricey side. Adding 6.50 to park the car makes the trip quite expensive. We would not do it with the whole family due to price.

Staff were friendly and always around if you needed them. My partner and I enjoyed the freedom of being able to go around the course freely, which made it more competitive. The safety brief was brilliant and covered all questions. Will be returning.
