DALBY

North Yorkshire

Situated on the southern slopes of the North York Moors National Park lies our white rose adventure. Hilltop-to-hilltop zip wires and a plunging valley below are just two features that make Go Ape Dalby so special. And with miles of walking trails taking in Staindale Lake, Adderstone and the Bridestones, there are plenty of sights to see from the ground too.

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!

ReVIEWS & FEEDBACK

TREE TOP JUNIOR, Southampton

27th August 2016

Brilliant day. Went with a 6, 10 & 16 year old. We all did junior course. Kids loved it so much they went back for second time! All the staff were friendly but professional and we felt safe in the harnesses. Steve was especially helpful. Will definitely go back to do the Adventurer course with the older kids, but junior course had ample for all levels so will probably do that again too.

Did the Tree Top Adventure for my daughter's 10th birthday treat. I knew the children would love it but was a bit nervous for myself. In fact we all enjoyed it - I even managed the extreme Tarzan swing. That and the zip wires were the children's favourite parts of the course.

I was really, really pleased with the experience. Having done a similar activity at Center Parcs, we decided to come to Go Ape - and the Go Ape experience was far superior to Center Parcs. Both in terms of price (Go Ape is not cheap, but CP much more expensive), and the experience (the Go Ape course was better, and the fact that we could carry on around both courses for the full hour). We all thought it was fantastic, and will definitely come again.

Good, exhausting fun, which pushes you physically and mentally, but too expensive to return anytime soon.

A wonderful experience for our three children in the trees, and us and our dog below, watching. The confidence, knowledge and friendliness of the staff made this a day to remember as they provided the possibility for our children to enjoy and be confident, use problem solving skills and work together as a team, helping each other. Thank you.
