Design a Christmas Card Competition WINNER!


This year, Go Ape asked as many young thrill-seekers as possible to share their adventures with us through our Christmas outdoors-themed Christmas Card Competition.

We were delighted to receive over 200 designs! Our team loved seeing your artistic talent as well as your passion for the outdoors. There were so many brilliant options that we spent ages poring over the designs to choose our two winners - and we finally decided we couldn't just pick two! So we've added a second runner-up prize for one of our very talented entrants.  

Without further ado, it’s time to reveal our lucky winners...


2nd runner up


Our 2nd runner up prize goes to 9-year-old Aiden! Aiden drew us a fantastic cheeky monkey with a Christmas twist - we love Santa's sleigh shadowed in the background. We hope you enjoy your day hanging out on our Treetop Adventure Aiden! 

We were lucky enough to speak to Aiden and he was very pleased to receive his prize:  "I really enjoyed drawing my cheeky monkey. I can't wait to use the tickets with my little sister next year. Thank you."


runner up


The first runner-up prize goes to 9-year-old Grace! Our team loved this wintery Go Ape wonderland filled with all its penguins, reindeer, and snowmen.  We hope Grace has an amazing adventure this Christmas with her Go Ape Family pass and has a very merry Christmas - hopefully with penguins included! 

We managed to speak to Grace about her win, and she told us “I like drawing and art so I am glad you ran this competition!”.

Grace’s teacher added, “It was brilliant to have the theme of “Christmas outdoors” as it provided a great conversation starter, about all the lovely things we can still do outside (even if we can’t meet inside!) It gave us a chance as a class to think about ice skating, snowball fights, hot chocolate, and even started conversations about little woodland animals and what they might do for Christmas, in the trees! Hence some of Grace’s drawing.”




Now for the big reveal - the winner of our Christmas Card Competition is...

Philip, aged 8! 

 Philip’s design is cool and Christmassy with Go Ape reimagined as Santa’s factory and monkeys as elves. What a great idea!

We put on our interviewer hats and asked Philip for a quote: “Go Ape is so much fun we have been there so many times and imagining drawing Santa’s factory on the ropes, platforms and zip wire was another exciting challenge for me. “

Congratulations Philip!  We hope you love your mega prize of a Go Ape Family Pass and a brilliant  merchandise bundle (2 adult sweatshirts, 2 child sweatshirts, 4x bobble hats, 4x gloves).

Merry Christmas!

We'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who entered our competition - it was so lovely to see all your wonderful designs. 

Have a super-duper Christmas and a very adventurous New Year!
