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!

TREE TOP ADVENTURE, Bedgebury

6th December 2016

My 2 children (13 and 10) and I had a really wonderful day. They were so brave,and I only screamed once!! Unfortunately my friend decided after getting half way up the first ladder that it really wasn't for her,and her son agreed after the first zip wire that he was indeed afraid of heights, even with very gentle encouragement from the lovely goape team, but I was refunded their tickets, so hey ho it's not for everyone. We will be back when it's a bit warmer, it was a bit frosty up in the tree tops. Nb, bedgebury forest was absolutely beautiful.

Cannot fault it. That's twice my 8yr old has enjoyed tree top junior at Leeds castle and loved it both times. Special mention to the chief gorilla - young girl, off to New Zealand v soon. A lovely girl and i wish her every success. Great with the kids and the (rather cold) Dad.

I booked Go Ape as a birthday treat for my 13year daughter. She had a fantastic experience, as did her friend and older sister! The staff were friendly and professional and ensured that they were all confident and happy with safety procedures before letting them loose in the tree tops! It was fun, challenging, a little scary at times and great fun was had by all. Good value for money and a fun outdoor adventure in a beautiful environment.
