What should I wear?

We suggest that you wear something you don’t mind getting grubby. Dress for the weather, so bring along a mac if it’s raining! Make sure your stomach area is covered. 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.

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.

Brilliant experience. All the staff were friendly and helpful from booking in. The staff at Go Ape junior gave a great safety talk to the kids, put them at ease. They then gave them loads of support going around. The course was brilliant and as they completed it and still had time left they went back on. We will be returning.

My 9 ur old & I did the junior adventure...it was a challenge for us both as our 1st time...the zip wire was exhilarating, albeit nerve-racking.My husband & 13 yr old did the tree top adventure, again 1st time...they were very impressed with the training & the course, again very challenging.My son caught his eye socket on one of the zip wires and your staff at HQ were very helpful...apart from a shiner he still had a fab time. Thetford forest is a great location and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on a great family day out.

A fantastic family adventure. Great that you have two levels of course so we could all enjoy it. Staff super friendly, helpful, supportive and safety aware. We loved it and the fact that you could go round as many times as you could in your hour slot. We would come again sooner but the cost mounts up!

A brilliant experience and a great way to spend a day out with the kids doing something exhilarating and exciting. I'd definitely recommend it and would love to do it again. But at £116 for 4 of us it's a little on the pricey side.

Brought my 13 year old grandson along for a treat. He absolutely loved it. We both thought the zipwires were amazing - and worth the effort to get to them. I was particularly impressed with the safety presentation by Claude and the patience shown by all staff as we plotted our way around.
