Know Before You Go

What should I wear?

We suggest that you wear something you don’t mind getting grubby. Dress for the weather, so bring along a mac if it’s raining! Make sure your stomach area is covered. Please wear appropriate footwear with soles with good grips. No sandals or slip-off shoes. You’ll need closed toe and heel shoes (with flat soles). Long hair must be tied back.

When do I need to arrive?

Make your way to the Go Ape cabin and be ready to get going on your Go Ape adventure at your booked time. Late arrivals that miss their session will be charged at full price.

Can I bring a camera?

Phones and cameras are permitted, as long as they always stay attached to the participant. Lanyards are available to buy from the cabin, subject to availability.

Know Before You Go

When do I need to arrive?

Make your way to the Go Ape cabin and be ready to get going on your Go Ape adventure at your booked time. Late arrivals that miss their session will be charged at full price.

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!

Staff team were brilliant, from front desk to tree top, they got to know our sons names making them feel safe. It was our eldest sons 10th birthday and they remembered his name and congratulated him so he felt valued. The hour just went too quickly!

Great experience. Took my 6 year old son and staff were fantastic with us and in particular for him. Gave great encouragement to him and I could also see them doing the same to other younger children. Great place, great staff. We will return.

Overall a very enjoyable experience. Everything was run well apart from the final course. Part of the final course was closed due to a falling tree/branch, which is understandable. However the queuing could have been managed better. Clear processes should be in place to properly manage this and if possible scale back the number of bookings to avoid long queues.

This was a fab family bonding hour. I couldn't keep up with my 6 year old. My younger son was very nervous when he started but his confidence really grew as he made his way round the course. Really good fun Highly recommended!

TREE TOP ADVENTURE, TREE TOP JUNIOR, Sherwood

£94 was a lot to pay for a family of 4 day out (well - it wasn't even a day it was one hour on the junior treetop and 2 hours on the treetop). Couldn't see any offers for families or it wasn't brought to my attention when booking that there were any family offers. The shelter building area was good. We enjoyed it - but at this price, it will be a once a year treat if that.

I took 3 children to experience the junior Go-Ape. My youngest and eldest loved the thrill and challenges and sped through the course. My 9 year old was more apprehensive however with support and encouragement from the staff he over came his fears and eventually completed the course. Thank you to the staff at Battersea who were very supportive and friendly. We will return.

I personally did not enjoy the go ape as I am scared of heights and only went to take my boyfriend for his birthday. I couldn't complete the course and staff refunded my money which I was not expecting. The staff were fantastic, very helpful and friendly. Will highly recommended Thetford

Great day out,good fun had by all,though I do think £33 pounds is to costly especially when you also have to encure a £8.30 parking fee on top.
