Hide Out in the High Ropes

At a knee-knocking 1,200ft, Tree Top Adventure at Buxton is one of the highest Go Ape courses in the UK. Already a course of legendary status, we've recently added a whole host of fresh Zip Wires at the request of our customers, meaning an extended course with its own dedicated tree-to-tree zip section. Steadily ascending through the canopy, you'll climb, clamber and conquer this goliath of a high ropes course in 2-3 hours.


Built high in the hilltops of the UK's largest National Park, our Peak District location is BIG on adventure. Get your heart-pumping with one of our biggest Tarzan swing drops. You'll leap off the platform into stomach-turning freefall before being swung into our giant cargo net (psst, we have alternative obstacles for budding adventurers).
