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!

The Segway could be longer better value for money. I.e. Don't include safety in the time for actual segwaying get that and demo over with then start the hour. We didn't have time to do all a.b.c.d. Tracks which was a real shame. Very enjoyable tho.

Had a great time on the seaways, the guys were very friendly. Our instructor Ellie was really nice and made us feel at ease. we had a great day. I did drop my phone on the way back to the car and lose the photos of us but I guess thats an excuse to come again!

TREE TOP ADVENTURE, Moors Valley

24th September 2016

Great experience with children, could always be a bit longer, we zip around in an hour or so after the safety brief. My 10 year old daughter loved it. It's a touch on the pricey side. Adding 6.50 to park the car makes the trip quite expensive. We would not do it with the whole family due to price.
