    We had an amazing time. This was booked for our daughter's 9th birthday. She went with her two cousins and they had a wonderful experience. The staff were very supportive, friendly and helpful. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. We want to go again! X

The staff atmosphere was very positive and welcoming. I will definitely recommend Go Ape Alice Holt to anyone looking for a fun day out.

    On 2nd June 2022 we visited Go Ape in Alice Holt. We braved the Tree Top Challenge of which we were initially very nervous. Our party consisted of 2 kids (13+15) and an elderly relative. When we arrived (at 9:30, booked for 10) the staff very kindly guided us to an allocated area where we waited. In the minutes we had before the start, we looked around the beautiful forest of Alice Holt. At 10, we and 3 other people met a kind instructor who demonstrated safety briefing inc how to attach the ropes from each task. She was very clear and helpful. We then went over to stage 1 of 5 where we practised hooking up to the wires and climbed a ladder. The course had 2 tarzan ropes, 1 of which was shippable. The first one was very early on but was relatively easy to complete as it was only a 5m swing. You are always attached to something in the case that you fall. Very good at making sure everyone is safe. We had a great time. At our venu, the parking cost us £9 (for a few hours) or the option for all day parking (£12). The price of Go Ape was quite expensive for larger families but the experience is second to none. Would definitely recommend for people with young kids.

    Had a great time on the run with my young grandson. I intend to have a go with him on the next run when he is old enough.
