    Myself and my partner had a great time. Friendly, accommodating staff. Good location, and straight forward to find and park. I thought it was just the right amount of activities. Any less would hav been disappointing, and anymore would have been to much. I do feel it's worth the cost, however a free cuppa would have really topped of the experience. A big thank you to the team, and good job.

    Was a blast kids really enjoyed the experience and I’m still shaking but gave it a good shot , I can’t thank the staff and Chessington GoApe enough I took my son who has special needs and a fear of heights, the staff were great with him wen he found one obstacle too difficult and got him through , will definitely be visiting regularly.

    My 6 year old son had his birthday party today. We were 32 people all together and I have to say the Go Ape team were AMAZING! Nothing was too much trouble. We also had a disabled child who they ensured that could do the zip line without causing a fuss. It was amazing how they just made everything happen. I am so impressed. Thank you to all of you!
