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 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 8 year old daughter and I had a fun time out and enjoyed a picnic lunch afterwards on the grounds. It was a pity that one family was so extremely slow that we wasted about 15 minutes of our time waiting for them on the easy course. It would be nice in that situation for the instructers to offer a little more time to those who had to wait. The one instructor had quite poor eye contact and wasnt very engaging with kids however she did her job and was pleasant enough. The lady at reception was very friendly.

  • 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!

  • We went there with 40 children. It was well organised and the kids were happy, excited in cold and rainy weather. I cannot recommend it enough.
