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 one 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!

Great morning out. Great welcome. Loved it. The only down side was it seemed a little shorter than other courses done. The instructor watched us through the 1st stage but then the next was stage 3... Seems like we lost a stage somewhere. Only did 4 stages, not 5 unless the 1st practice bit is classed as a stage.
