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, Battersea Park

30th August 2016

It was a little difficult as an adult, to do the junior course (as I had an eight year old with me) as the lines are very low. Apart from that it was a fantastic experience, throughly enjoyed by the kids.

It was a spur of the moment adventure and my 10year old and I loved every minute. It is a superb place with great staff and I would recommend it as it's great fun and a laugh too. My son wants to go back asap and also wants his birthday party to be there so it's a thumbs up from us :)

FOREST SEGWAY, Moors Valley

30th August 2016

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!
