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 an 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!

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!

TREE TOP ADVENTURE, Bedgebury

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!
