Experience the adventure of the Sundown Series

Swing through the trees like an ape in our new evening opening of the popular high-ropes courses at 10 sites around the country from the beginning of October. This autumn, thrill seekers are invited to leap, fly, run or zoom their way through a new night-time adventure. Tackle mega-high platforms in the darkness or feel the speed of a zip wire under a blanket of stars. With minimal lighting, these senses heightening experiences really do add a new level of excitement into the mix. After all, everybody knows that when the sun goes down the real fun begins….

What to expect

Discover another side to Go Ape with our Sundown Series experiences- we are opening up a number of locations after nightfall; expect zooming through the forest on segways in Dalby, a night time zip at Grizedale, or try out the Treetop Challenge at night in Battersea Park. Test your balance, strength and coordination as your senses go into overdrive.

Sundown Trees: Zip and Challenge

Push yourself to new limits and experience our Challenge course with a daringly dark twist! Three Go Ape sites will offer the special nightfall edition of Treetop Challenge: Go Ape Ally Pally, Go Ape Battersea and Go Ape Coventry. With no sunlight to guide you, you'll head straight up to the highest loop of the course and make your way around the treetops. End the night-time fun at Ally Pally with a 15.5 metre plummet to the ground - question is, do you dare jump off the platform into the void?

If you’re looking for a different kind of heart racing experience. As the sun goes down at our sites in Dalby, Grizedale and Aberfoyle, the Treetop Zips begin, with seriously high-level tree-top crossings and incredible zip wire flights to get your pulse quickening. With stunning backdrops of mountain and moorland, forests and valleys, you'll fly over trees and waterfalls in the night sky for a once-in-a-lifetime experience that dials the thrill factor to the max.

Sundown Segways

This autumn, you can put your steering skills to the test with a segway in the dark! After nightfall the fun-fuelled, two-wheeled tours of the forest begin, with Sundown Segways available at the following sites only: Black Park; Dalby Forest; Moors Valley; Sherwood Pines and Thetford. With only minimal lighting and the sounds of the forest to guide you, this senses heightening experience adds a whole new level of thrill into the equation.
