Know Before You Go

When do I need to arrive?

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!

Segway was a brilliant experience. Grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed the Junior Go Ape. The only criticism of the Go Ape was the number of people meant there was regular queuing for the next stage, but an amazing experience overall.

My daughter said the zip wires at the end of each stage were great and she liked having a choice of extreme or normal path at some points. (She chose extreme each time!) I liked being able to follow at ground level with my camera.

TREE TOP ADVENTURE, Southampton

28th August 2016

Really enjoyed the day as I was facing my fears did really well but got to the ladder which looks like a tree trunk and has cut out foot steps and green handles and went into panic mode and could not do it so I missed out on the final zip wire which was disappointing as I really enjoyed the zip wires. But it didn't spoil the day as I got a lot further round than I thought I would.

Had a really great day at go ape forest pines the staff were all engaging and very helpful on both tree top and the segway so thank you very much to every one my only criticism is altho fun the segway is rather pricey to be honnest but fun non the less. My only other gripe is the staff in the cafe cabin were miserable as sin and rather unhelpful but I don't think they are go ape staff. So on the whole thanks go ape for a good day

We had a great time at go ape (wife and 13 & 11 year olds) the instructors where very good when my wife and youngest got a little scared, he talked them through every step and made them feel safe. My only complaint would be that only one instructor fitted the harness to everyone which took over 30 mins, this was made worse by some of the other instructors standing around talking to each other, when they could of helped ( our instructor made the same comment ) But all in all very, we will be going ape again soon

A really enjoyable afternoon but physically exhausting. It did conquer some height fears. Small wobble at the last hurdle but so pleased I completed it. It was a great sense of achievement. Trainers were excellent in the safety talk. Would definitely recommend.
