Top 5 Go Ape Treetop Challenge Obstacles

From swings and stirrups to nets, ropes and bridges, Go Ape's Treetop Challenge courses are jam-packed with a range of super-fun obstacles. Some are physically challenging, while others are more of a mental challenge.

Some test your strength and agility; others test your willpower, bravery, and your ability not to swear when there are a couple of kids standing on the next platform!

Are you a tarzan swing enthusiast or more of a high ropes hero? After chin-wagging with our customers and checking our feedback, we've rounded up five of our most-loved Treetop Challenge obstacles:

Brilliant Bridges

We do bridges with a difference and our adventurers can't get enough of them! Our bridges sway, shake and wobble, and you're faced with the task of staying upright as you make your way across them. Some of them have supporting ropes to guide you, while with others you have to take a 'no hands' approach. These crossings definitely require full concentration...and a good sense of balance.

Tricky Tightropes


On the subject of 'balance,' our tightropes are another tree top favourite. You'll find that our tightropes can be challenging - as well as extremely fun.

The trick is to not gaze at the ground beneath you. Look straight ahead of you and ignore your mates on the platform trying to make you laugh.

Super Stirrups

Dubbed our "most challenging obstacle," our tree top stirrups are a true test of physical and mental ability - perhaps that's why they're a forest favourite. Attempting to slot each foot in a tiny stirrup hole is one thing; catching hold of the next rope as it rocks and sways in the breeze is another! The stirrups also provide many a perfect-picture moment, think starfish stances and painful split poses.

Thrilling Tarzan Swings


Our tarzan swings are also up there with the most-loved Go Ape obstacles and it's easy to see why!

Stepping off a platform, and swinging into a huge cargo net, all while letting your chums hear your loudest, most impressive tarzan holler - what's not to love?!

Tarzan swings are also one of our most-extreme obstacles and  many people need a moment to peer over the edge before they muster up the courage. But, once you take that leap of faith, you'll feel amazing for it!

Epic Zip Wires

"A means to an end," or "a glorious finale" ... call them what you will, our zip wires are our definitely one of the most-loved obstacles. We all love finishing on a high and our zip wires are certainly high. Expect spectacular views as you soar at speed before landing safely in a soft spot!
