Bracknell

There’s lots of fun to be had at Go Ape Bracknell with four adventures to choose between – Treetop Challenge, Treetop Adventure and Treetop Adventure Plus as well as Forest Segway.

We've got all views of the forest covered from ground level to tree level. Climb your way around Swinley Forest on the Challenge course & be prepared for 2-3 hours of tree-to-tree obstacles designed to get the adrenaline pumping and the heart thumping. Children can take their first steps into the canopy on our Treetop Adventure course complete with a Treetop Adventure Plus extension for older children to really test their limits. Prefer your fun on the forest floor? Book a Forest Segway experience for a unique hour spent cruising through the trees, there's nothing quite like it.

An adventure trio

Being owned by the Crown Estate we like to think Go Ape Bracknell has royal approval! It definitely has a sprinkling of magic dust as parts of the Harry Potter movies were filmed on location here. 

Conveniently tucked amongst Reading, Farnborough, Maidenhead and Slough it’s the perfect antidote to busy living – a calm oasis for families to retreat to.

Swinley Forest stretches over 2,600-acres of gentle hills from Bracknell to Crowthorne. It’s a lovely place to explore on foot and it’s well known for its mountain bike trails.

There’s a 15-mile cycle network offering Green (beginner), Blue (intermediate) and Red (advanced) trails so something for the two-wheel adventurers and family riders too. 

Bring your own bikes or you can hire from the Swinley Bike Hub.

Children can launch a hydrogen rocket, play with boats in the indoor stream or build a house with our friends in The Look Out Discovery Centre.

There is also a play area which is split into three parts – an inclusive area, infant play area and junior play area.

You can grab a drink and snack from the Coffee Shop and there are also lots of tables and benches surrounding the play area, if you’d rather bring a picnic!

  • Great fun had by all, not the hardest tree adventure we've done but still challenging at points. Parking was difficult as extremely busy due to weather so arrive with plenty of time to spare.

  • I took 8 children aged 8 and they all had the most amazing time! I was extremely impressed with the staff - they were friendly, enthusiastic (even though it was freezing cold) and helpful. We will definitely return!

    Mark Gibson

  • Our grand kids boy aged 6 and girl aged 9 had a wonderful time. The staff are first class and very helpful. Beautiful forest location with refreshments and play area nearby. They also made a number of friends while enjoying the various challenges up in the trees. Great value and we will definitely be back.
