Please wear appropriate footwear with soles with good grips. No sandals or slip-off shoes. You’ll need closed toe and heel shoes (with flat soles). Long hair must be tied back.

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.

FOREST SEGWAY, Moors Valley

I booked for 4 of us and we arrived 20 mins before the start time as requested. We were greeted by very friendly staff and loved the segways but the experience was let down by the fact we started 10 minutes late due to 6 people arriving at the time we were supposed to start. I assumed we would get the full hour we paid for but sadly, including the safety briefing we only got 50 minutes, which meant only 35 minutes in the forest on the segways. Very disappointed!

Unfortunately due to traffic delays and roadworks it took us 2 hours to travel from Essex to Kent. As a result we missed our booking. The staff were very understanding and were able to move our booking. We only had to wait a short time for our slot. This is the first time I have been to a go ape adventure. I booked it for my niece and nephew as a birthday gift. I am surprised with the quality and challenges it sets for young children. I am extremely impressed as I enjoy hiking and trekking. I enjoyed the day and had a great laugh with he kids. I've already been tasked to book another one for my nephew and niece! Thank you.

Had a great couple of hours swinging through the trees! Special thanks to the instructor who talked a nervous 11 year old through a couple of wobbly moments. Looking forward to the next tree top adventure!

The instructors were brilliant, it was a little busy to start with so they gave the kids extra time to make up for the wait. As a parent I felt we got great value for money thanks to the flexibility of the instructors with the timing. The kids had a fantastic time and we brought with us a very nervous friend who grew in confidence the longer we stayed, and at the end she declared it the best bank holiday monday ever!

Would be great if you offered a discount on party bookings especially for those with little monkey's born in November. Works out very expensive to book party, under cover area for food, party bags etc. £15/per head with free reserved use food area would be fab!
