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!

I was supporting a teenager with Autism and I cannot speak highly enough of the staff at Go Ape. They were inclusive, sensitive and understanding of our needs. It was such a positive experience and we will be back soon to nail the zip wire! Thank you so much to all of the team at Crawley.

It was great. Incredibly hard for me with my disablity but fantasticly empowering to finish. Had a problem with my harness and our instructor came within a few minutes and fixed me. He was a top bloke and incredibly helpful

TREE TOP ADVENTURE, TREE TOP JUNIOR, Thetford Forest

30th July 2016

Our group was ages 9-15 + adult staff and each and every one enjoyed their experience, some overcoming their fear of heights. Go Ape is a physically and mentally challenging experience and is particularly great for school groups. Ending with a BBQ it was a fantastic day out. Our only gripe is the cost of the day as after paying a substantial amount for the adventure there was parking at over £50 and a BBQ stand for £20 having to bring your own coals etc. As part of the forestry park at the very least it should be free parking for participants. You are not even allowed to be dropped off at the zone without paying the parking fee. A fortune must be made on BBQ hire but why not have gas BBQs where users pay at the BBQ for gas (same as Aussie parks). Far safer than lit charcoals surely.
