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!

All the staff were excellent. They made our adventure really enjoyable. The group size was not to big so we were able to keep moving at a comfortable pace. The tree top experience was exciting for all 4 of us. If we could we would have given a score of more than 5 for the staff. Thanks for a great afternoon.

My Sons 7th Birthday party, 14 children aged 7-8 years, they all had an amazing time, some conquering fears, some giving their parents heart failure as they charged around the course and some demonstrating teamwork that would put adults to shame. It was exhilarating, exciting and exhausting all at once !!! Thank you......

When we arrived we booked in and I was told that I had booked for 2 children aged 16 to 17 and I had made a mistake because my children are under 12, but this wasn't a problem which saved any disappointment. Staff very helpfull and polite. Myself and my husband initially thought that the course was short and not very challenging but when our children went on they thoroughly enjoyed it. We thought that a hour was to short aswell but was surprised and feel that any longer would have been to much for the children and they where willing to come of and were absolutely knackered after. The equipment was in excellent condition and the course had been well designed to build up there confidence slowly. Overall we had a fantastic time and have already looked at the battersea park location for the near future.

Such great staff that really made the whole experience enjoyable for us. Each staff member had their own personality when instructing and entertaining our group, which just added to an already awesome day of swinging around trees in a beautiful location. Couldn't recommend it highly enough!

Booking was nice and easy, staff were friendly and knowledgeable and the kids demo was fantastic for them to understand the basics, however I feel that £18 for one hour was slightly too expensive and it definitely put me off booking again for the next time we visit the forest. But the kids did have fun despite the cost
