Here’s where it all began!
The first Go Ape adventure opened back in 2002 at High Lodge Thetford, pioneering the way for all of our other locations. We’ve never looked back, welcoming adventure-seekers with open arms to our original Tree Top Adventure, Tree Top Junior and Forest Segway.
50000 acres of pine make up the largest man made lowland forest in the UK- not a bad spot for a series of high ropes crossings designed to hurl you out of your comfort zone. With a cocktail of high rise platforms, tricky obstacles and supercharged zip wires, Tree Top Adventure in Thetford is not to be underestimated. For those looking to ease their way in to the world of forest high ropes, don’t miss the fun to be had at Tree Top Junior but if you’d rather stay firmly on the ground, Forest Segway may be right up your street.
Tree Top Adventure
A marvellous mix of Zip Wires, Tarzan Swings and other high ropes paths await suspended between the pines of Thetford Forest. Are you ready to step up to the challenge? Up the ante and see if you can maintain control across the Go Ape's longest stirrups crossing, or throw in a bit of showboating with a no handed attempt between the trees. Begin your quest to tree top mastery today and book your Tribe in for one of the most unique outdoor activities in Suffolk.

Tree Top Junior
If you’re looking to dial down the adrenaline and remain thoroughly within the family vibe that Thetford Forest projects so well, then Tree Trop Junior is ideal. Rookie adventurers and young bucks can unite across a less demanding high ropes adventure but with no shortage of fun. Enjoy an hour up in the trees, totalling two loops of crossings suitable for all abilities, before zipping back down to the forest floor via an all-star Zip Wire finale.

All Ages (Over 1 metre)
All-terrain self-balancing Segways coupled with terrific woodland trails are in store for anyone bound for their Forest Segway adventure. Mixing purpose-built tracks with scenic woodland trails result in the ability for riders to negotiate twisty bends and inclines, before throttling along the forest straights. A highlight to be found with our Segways in Thetford Forest has to be the four independent routes on offer, allowing you to get to grips with your new found skill at your own pace.
