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!

Forest Segway

At Bracknell Forest, your Segway experience is your own to tailor. Once we’re happy that you’re confident controlling the green technology, it’s over to you. Our ‘free ride’ routes mean you won’t be directly led by an instructor, and will be able to explore our specially designed trails at your own pace. Our self-balancing, electric Segways can reach speeds of anywhere between walking pace to 11mph. Take things slowly to spot filming locations from Harry Potter, or get the adrenaline going with the wind-in-your-face.
