FOREST OF DEAN

Gloucestershire

Our two locations in the Forest of Dean - England's largest oak woodland - is arguably our most beautiful place of residency. Mallards Pike Lake, home to our original Tree Top Adventure and Forest Segway, is a great spot for a picnic or a gentle lakeside walk. Three miles down the road, in the heart of the forest, Beechenhurst Lodge plays host to our Tree Top Junior Adventure.

Tree Top Adventure

Enjoy two to three hours in the trees taking on Zip Wires, Tarzan Swings, Rope Ladders and a variety of obstacles and crossings. To celebrate a decade of adventures in 2016 our leafy hideout at the Forest of Dean has seen a complete redesign making it the perfect family outdoor activity. It includes brand new obstacles such as the Tank Trap, The Shuffle, Net Bridge and Itchen Crossing to name but a few and we've extended the Zip Wires on Sites 2 and 3.

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.

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.

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!

Forest Segway

Hop aboard our all-terrain Segways and let us lead your Tribe into an historic woodland, rich in rare and unusual wildlife. Our self-balancing, stand-on Segways are powered by quiet electric motors, helping you get up close to wildlife such as wild boar and deer. The mixture of native and introduced tree species also supports the UK’s largest concentration of northern goskawks – a beautiful black and white bird of prey closely related to eagles and buzzards.
