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!

My favourite bits were the zip lines and Tarzan swings

TREE TOP JUNIOR, Cannock

The junior course was good for the age range as it was for a child's birthday, the only disappointment was that a young girl not from our group was in front and froze halfway across an obstacle which delayed everyone by about 10-15 minutes as no one could get to her as once your on the junior course you can't get off and no one can get around you. Not sure if there is anyway around this. Other than that it was a great experience for a group of 8 year olds. Would be good to see if there were packages available for Children's birthdays where food is provided (or woodland picnic) and also if packages are done to combine more of the activities in one price so it could be a complete day out. You may do this but i couldn't;t see it advertised while I was there. Thanks

Absolutely amazing day! Only thing that put a slight downer was the walk all the way round the park beforehand due to the work on the car park. This made us slightly late but all staff were understanding and great fun which definitely made up for it!

TREE TOP JUNIOR, Leeds Castle

We booked this for our sons birthday party and overall they all had a good time but the young guy who was giving out the safety instructions to the boys about the harness was incredibly miserable and was obviously having a bad day. He asked if the boys had any questions and when they did, he just rudely told them to be quiet and had a sense of humour loss with some boys who were understandsbly excited. The only reason I didn't say anything was because I didn't want to spoil my sons birthday, but he was the same with every child there. Miserable, rude, curt, wasn't enjoying his job and definitely shouldn't be working with children!!!

Tough but so satisfying and parts would even be described as fun. Elements were seriously tough but launching yourself off a platform into the air as you hurtle down a zip line is a lot of fun!

Booked to do the Forest Segway with my friend (both in our 50's). We were a bit concerned that we may be a bit old and odd but the staff gave us a very warm greeting. Our Segway leader was totally lovely and looked after us very, very well.

This was a Mothers Day gift from my son for me and his dad. We absolutely loved it..such good fun. Initially I thought I might be a bit 'old' for this but the staff made me feel at ease and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. What I particularly liked was although the safety briefing etc emphasised the 'high risk activity' once considered competent, we were left with minimal supervision to just enjoy the course at our own pace.

An amazing experience for my son and his friend on a random teacher training day in the middle of September, which meant we had the whole place to ourselves! The rain didn't bother us...it just added to the experience. The instruction was very thorough and pitched just right for my 12 year olds. We enjoyed every minute and the whole course was far longer than I expected, the zip wires super long and high and the Tarzan swings thrilling. Thank you so much to Emma and the team 10/10

TREE TOP ADVENTURE, Bedgebury

We always enjoy the Go-Ape experience. The booking process is easy. The staff on site are always very helpful and jolly. The courses are a good mixture of difficult enough to give children/youngsters a sense of achievement but not so tough that they don't want to return! My only comment is that despite the 10% discounts by the time a family of 8 goes there it works out quite expensive (and more so as parking in Bedgebury when we did not use their other resources added a further £12). As a one off fair enough but if we do Go-Ape more than once per year it does add up. So I wonder if larger families who go repeatedly should have additional discount. I would and do recommend the experience to others. Many thanks, Enrique Valles

Loved the climbing wall on stage 5. Would be better if all the water stations had water + cups.
