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. Please wear appropriate footwear with soles with good grips. No sandals or slip-off shoes. You’ll need closed toe and heel shoes (with flat soles). Long hair must be tied back.

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.

Thanks for a very organised birthday party. The team looked after our group of 18 boys and everyone of them had a fantastic time and can't stop talking about the it. One of the children was a little apprehensive but the staff were brilliant and put his mind at ease. Hiring the lodge for food afterwards was a must. We were able to have food and party games, which were enjoyed by all. The party was expensive but well worth it when you see the children's faces! Many thanks guys for a suberb party, would definately recommend!

My 2 children (13 and 10) and I had a really wonderful day. They were so brave,and I only screamed once!! Unfortunately my friend decided after getting half way up the first ladder that it really wasn't for her,and her son agreed after the first zip wire that he was indeed afraid of heights, even with very gentle encouragement from the lovely goape team, but I was refunded their tickets, so hey ho it's not for everyone. We will be back when it's a bit warmer, it was a bit frosty up in the tree tops. Nb, bedgebury forest was absolutely beautiful.

Everyone is friendly and helpful. The experience was really lovely. My 13 year and old and I had a really good time. Probably good advice to stretch first, before going climbing!
