With 35 fun-filled locations nationwide, Go Ape prides itself on having adventures suitable for all ages, from tots to centenarians! But, realistically, not every adventure can be suitable for everyone.  

Go Ape is dedicated to ensuring that every site visitor and instructor is safe and happy on our courses. We have just been awarded the RoSPA Gold Award for Health and Safety practices for a third year in a row! This is why each adventure has restrictions and supervisor ratios.  

We’ll explain exactly which adventures your 5-year-old can do below but you can also find it on each adventure. 

Nets Adventure

Children playing on Nets Adventure

Nets Adventure is the ideal first adventure for tots taking their first steps up into the trees to those of you with an inner 5 year old trapped inside. The minimum age is 1 year old and little adventurers should be able to stand unaided. The maximum weight per person is also 130kg (20.5stones). 

One participating adult (18+) can supervise up to two children aged under 6 while on the course. Supervisors for under 6’s also go for FREE.  

Aged 16+ can explore Nets Adventure unaccompanied but those aged 16-17 cannot supervise others. 


Treetop Adventure

Boy on Treetop Adventure at Go Ape

Go Ape’s classic Treetop Adventure is the next leap up into the canopy with twisty, wobbly crossings and zips galore! This high rope experience is ideal for all thrill seekers over 1m and the maximum weight is 130kg (20.5stones). 

One participating adult (18+) can supervise up to two children aged under 6 while on the course. For 6-15 year olds, adults (18+) can supervise up to 5 children on the ground or on the activity.
