What happens if it rains on the day of the booking?

Go Ape is an excellent "all-weather" activity. We have received lots of positive feedback from participants who have attended in the rain, with some even saying it adds to the fun. We advise dressing appropriately for the weather so that this does not dampen your experience. A spare set of clothes is also handy, so you can get changed at the end of your activity. Not all of our sites offer changing room facilities, but most of our locations have public toilets available for this.


Do you ever have to close because of the weather?

Safety is always our number one priority, so we occasionally have to close if the weather is deemed unsafe due to adverse weather such as high winds, thunderstorms, or thick ice. Our team will get in touch as soon as possible via the contact number provided if your visit is impacted. We will also post updates via the Go Ape location's social media channels too.

Our team on site assesses the weather every morning before opening to the public to ensure it is safe to operate and throughout the day for any changes. If you are not contacted, then your booking will be going ahead as scheduled.

Unfortunately, we do not offer a discount for birthday bookings.
