top 5 Go Ape obstacles

It's incredibly subjective and one of the most popular questions we always get asked by our wider tribe.

Everyone will have their personal favourite or nemesis for that matter! We asked Dan, in the marketing tribe, to spill the beans on what the top five most challenging Go Ape obstacles are!


Hauling yourself along a cargo net is a good test of co-ordination and strength, like a crab climbing across a pirate ship of old. It's rated a 'difficult' crossing in the Go Ape world scrambling across it sideways 30ft up in the trees is why it's in at number five. You'll discover muscles you never knew existed!


Don't let this one fool you it's an extreme crossing for a reason. Keep your weight over the centre of the log if you don't want to swing from side to side. Imagine you're a circus tightrope walker stand tall with your shoulders back and use your arms to balance!


Not to be mistaken with the classic game that gets you to put your right foot on blue or your left hand on green. The Twister was introduced back in 2011 and is the ultimate test of balance and nerves. If you can brave this obstacle with no hands, you'll be the king or queen of the jungle. Be warned though it's feasted on thousands of primates named Dorothy, Tinman and Scarecrow!


When asked which of our obstacles you find the most daunting, there's only ever one answer the Tarzan Swing. Leaping from a platform into thin air requires nerves of steel and an iron stomach (pulling a face goes down well too). And then there's the cargo net on the other side. Hauling yourself up it is a good test of coordination and strength. The result is always the same, though. You'll want to do it again, and again, and again€¦


Getting your arms and legs to co-ordinate and catch the swinging hoops without getting tangled up in knots is one thing. Trying to look like a pro is another. You'll undoubtedly perform more twists and turns than a professional gymnast plus the splits are incredibly common when attempting to tackle The Stirrups. It gives a whole new meaning to 'horseplay'. Cue groans!
