Just a stone’s throw away from Chessington World of Adventures Resort this really is a mecca for thrill seekers.

Our first ever theme park location, this is roller coaster fun in the trees. Be prepared for some challenging crossings on Treetop Challenge and gather the troops for the brilliant four-person zip wire – that’s not something you’ll find anywhere else.

Start them young - bring the whole family and build little ones’ tree climbing skills and confidence on our Treetop Adventure course. They’ll be no stopping them after the final exhilarating zip ride.

  • My son had a really great time with his friends on the Junior Go Ape. A good exhilarating challenge at a well maintained and organised event. Perfect for burning off energy as part of birthday celebrations. Two minor improvements perhaps: better car parking and a proper celebration of completing the challenge/ course- the end sort of drifted with no marking of the occasion.


  • Great party for my 10 year old. Bit scary for some of the less brave! Friendly helpful staff.


  • Great really well organised, staff were brilliant

    Michael Read

  • I took my 8 year old and his friends to the Chessington Go Ape for his birthday. They were held up by a group who were less confident in the trees, I didn’t even need to say anything, the team automatically let them have some extra time. My monkeys had an amazing time swinging from the trees.

  • My 11year old and I had a great time couldn't believe it we were up in the trees for 2hrs


  • The whole experience from the telephone booking, to the arrival at Reception, to all aspects of the Activity itself, tonthe completion of the Activity, to being handed the Free Parking Ticket on leaving, was outstanding in every respect, and I cannot speak to highly of Go Ape Chessington. This was my third visit with my seven years old Grandson, but the first occasion on which I have joined him on the Course itself. It was his priority Activity for HalfTerm, and for me, it was a memorable experience to share the whole experience with him, both on and above ground! Without doubt, Go Ape is an exceptional Set-Up, and totally professional in every aspect of its operation. Whereas it is perhaps wrongly customary for the Management both on-site and at Head Office to take the credit for success stories, itvis so often forgotten that it is the calibre, commitment, attitude, loyalty and professionalism ofvthe staff on the ground who are the ones who really deserve the praise and recognition, because without them, the Orgsnisation would sinlmy be just one of many, as opposed to standing head and shoulders above the others. Although this is my own personal view, it is also based on many years experience, both hands on and in management where there is the opportunity made for young people to very actively become involved in and take responsibility for providing an outstanding activity and service, particularly to not only other young people and children, but also to adults. Without doubt all the young people working at Chessington were not only a credit to the Organisation, but more importantly to their generation and to themselves!
