Team Building in the Forest of Dean

The Forest of Dean - England's largest oak woodland - is arguably our most beautiful courses for an adventurous team day out. Mallards Pike Lake, home to Tree Top Adventure and Forest Segway, is a great spot for a bit of team bonding. Whether it be just a fun day out, team building, or celebrating success, our adventure offers multiple benefits for you and your tribe.

Tree Top Adventure

Enjoy two to three hours in the trees taking on Zip Wires, Tarzan Swings, Rope Ladders and a variety of obstacles and crossings. To celebrate a decade of adventures in 2016 our leafy hideout at the Forest of Dean has seen a complete redesign. It includes brand new obstacles such as the Tank Trap, The Shuffle and Net Bridge to name but a few and we've extended the Zip Wires on Sites 2 and 3.

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 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.

Are there storage facilities?

Some sites are able to store small items that cannot be left securely in a vehicle, but there are limited spaces. Go Ape cannot accept liability of any items lost or damaged whilst in our care. We recommend you leave valuable items at home. At Battersea Park, all loose items must be left on the ground either with a spectator or in lockers provided. If you need to take a camera or glasses they must be attached (which we may be able to assist with). This is due to the Battersea adventure being completely over public space (playground, café, Mini Golf).

Where is the BBQ or Picnic served?

Our caterers will set up in the Forest Shelters and whichever Forest Feast you choose, we will have it prepared and ready for the agreed time to include any individual dietary requirements!
