Our Sundown Adventures

Treetop Adventure

Each Treetop Adventure session begins with a safety brief from one of our instructors, and a chance to learn the ropes on a training site under their supervision.

Then, you’ll be let loose on the 2+ progressively difficult loops of Treetop Adventure, filled with challenging, free-swinging crossings and zips!

Participants must be over 1m tall.

From £23

Treetop Adventure Plus

Sundown Treetop Adventure Plus is for those looking to level up. This is an extension to the Treetop Adventure course with an additional, even higher and trickier loop.

The Treetop Adventure Plus loops of the course are lit more subtly to give thrill-seekers a greater sense of adventuring into the night.

Participants must be over 6 years old and 1.2m tall.

From £28

A light drizzle falls on a crisp autumn evening. The sunset is vivid behind the tall pines and the Treetop Adventure lights have just been turned on. I’m ready to begin a spectacular evening swinging through the forest with Go Ape’s Sundown Treetop Adventure.

Around me the course is faintly aglow with colourful lights wound around tree trunks and a few floodlights on the ground lead me along the course. The sky darkens, the moon peaking out from behind the clouds. In short, the setting is utterly spooky and thrilling.

When we arrive at Go Ape, we are kitted and fitted with harnesses with attached glow sticks to add to the festive fun. Then, after a safety brief, we’re ready to go. The Treetop Adventure course is thrilling in the day-time, but the darkness and slightly wet weather adds an even more exciting element.

We’re securely attached to the safety system but can’t quite see the next step in front of us and need to feel with our feet for the next foothold. The best part of the course is undoubtedly the zip wire. With only a couple of floodlights to light the landing site it’s a stomach fizzing experience as we swoop through the dark forest and try to stick our landings (to varying degrees of success).

As we tackle each crossing, I can feel myself, and everyone around me, become more confident. Any uncertain children (or adults) are soon racing around the course for another turn. By the end of the hour, we are panting and rosy cheeked but eager to squeeze in one last loop beneath the starry sky.

Any Go Ape adventure is a treat but this Sundown Treetop Adventure Plus was an unforgettable evening. I would definitely recommend trying a Sundown activity near you. Just because the nights are getting longer doesn’t mean that the fun has to end earlier!

Soar through the Night on a Sundown Adventure!
