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!

TREE TOP JUNIOR, ZIP TREKKING ADVENTURE, Grizedale

27th August 2016

Tough walk up the hill as it was very steep and I am very unfit it seems! However, once at the top it was worth it for the views and the zip wire experience. Huge adrenalin rush. We were nervous to begin with but the staff were fantastic and we enjoyed it once we had a couple of zip wires under our belt. Did this for my sons 16th birthday and he loved it. I was not actually due to participate, but my Dad (age 72!) dropped out with 60 seconds before we were due to take part! I have Rheumatiod Arthritis and I managed it, so anyone can do it. My younger 14 year old son now wants to do the lower course at our local Dalby Forest site so we will be going again in the next year. Thank you to the staff who were very helpful and also great fun to be with.
