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

Janice

TREE TOP JUNIOR, Wyre

27th July 2016

I had to phone to clarify height as after booking it only specifies minimum 1.2 metres height, so I actually thought I booked the wrong one. Once we arrived, I was extremely impressed with the service, the safety induction was clear and simple for kids to understand and the staff were encouraging and very aware of what the kids were doing. A brilliant day out. Mind you I'm not having a go!! 🙂

Had a fantastic day doing things that as a 59 year old grandmother I had not done before! Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and the team of staff were just amazingly helpful, fun and professional. I felt completely safe for myself and my 11 year old granddaughter and my son. The course was perfect for our first experience, culminating in a zip wire ride to the ground. This was our first time to Go Ape but I'm certain it won't be our last! Great day out.

TREE TOP ADVENTURE, Forest of Dean

It was great fun once you got into it and settled down. Being responsible for a 14 and an 11 yr old was the most daunting part but they both understood the safety rules and stuck to them. I did not like climbing the rope ladders but I got better at it by the end. The zip wires were by far my favourite part. I have to admit that on some of the more wobbly bridges I held onto the gear, let it take my weight and skidded across (for instance on the dangling rings).

All the staff were excellent. They made our adventure really enjoyable. The group size was not to big so we were able to keep moving at a comfortable pace. The tree top experience was exciting for all 4 of us. If we could we would have given a score of more than 5 for the staff. Thanks for a great afternoon.
