Know Before You Go

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.

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.

Can I bring a camera?

Phones and cameras are permitted, as long as they always stay attached to the participant. Lanyards are available to buy from the cabin, subject to availability.

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 ADVENTURE, Wendover

All the staff were lovely and very helpful, I'm terrified of heights and did this to challenge myself and absolutely loved it. All the stuff made me feel so safe and welcome and I really enjoyed my day at wendover :)

The river crossing was amazing and also loved that it was located in such a wonderful place. It made the experience really realistic. (-) The safety presentation and all about how to hook was rushed. It would be best if you made sure everyone has fully understood.

TREE TOP JUNIOR, Thetford Forest

A great go ape experience, very helpful staff. We did book with a special offer, which made it all the better. We did pay quite a high car park fee as it is not discounted with high lodge but overall we had a fab go ape!

TREE TOP ADVENTURE, Haldon

I'd like to say that this was one of the scariest things I have ever done but the sense of achievement I felt at the end of it was amazing! It's a real team building experience for you and all the others on with you. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone that works there was so friendly and welcoming and made the experience even better.
