SEASONAL SAVINGS at Go Ape Cannock:

Now you can get an adventure for less with our Seasonal Savings at Go Ape. Take to the trees with a Treetop Challenge from just £28 per person!*

This Go Ape location hits all the fun and adventure buttons against a backdrop of stunning valley views. In an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty you’ll find the longest combined crossing of any Go Ape location with nearly 1,500 metres of tree-to-tree crossings on our Challenge course.
The Treetop Adventure course is ideal for children (and adults) to find their tree legs and build their climbing confidence. If you’re a ‘keep your feet firmly on the ground’ kind of person, you can enjoy the breathtaking views from the comfort of one of our off-road Segways.

Adventure with a stunning backdrop

Cannock Chase is the smallest Area of Outstanding Beauty in mainland Britain and promises to deliver big time fun and adventure. Within an hours’ drive of Birmingham, a stone's throw away from Trentham and easy to reach distance from Leicester, it’s the perfect opportunity to escape the city for the day!

Once you climbed and whizzed your way around the trees you can explore the woodland on one of the many walking trails. Hire or bring your own bikes to enjoy the miles of cycling and mountain biking trails. 

There’s something to suit all ages and abilities with relaxing family rides through the picturesque valleys to the dedicated single-track of Follow the Dog and the Monkey Trail. For children there’s a play area and a walking trail with Gruffolo sculpture, three bears chairs, fairy trees and Play Houses.

 Look out for the Zog Activity Trail and learn as Zog did at dragon school. More steam to blow off? Bring a ball and enjoy a kick about in the large grassy clearing and picnic area. There’s also the Birches Valley Café if you want to grab a drink and delicious culinary treat. Dogs are welcome – there’s even an activity trail for your four-legged friends!

  • My boys had such a great time this weekend and it wore them out so much they went to bed without issue. For that alone I thank you.🤣

  • Fun for the whole family. I went to the Cannock GoApe with my husband and daughters aged 5 and 8. Check in was swift and friendly. We were harnessed up and given a demonstration before we were off. An hour of fun navigating the two routes round with the zip wire ending. Would highly recommend. The rest of Cannock Chase is there to fill the remainder of the day too!
