  • Fantastic time. My daughter & myself first visit & cannot wait to go again. My daughter had just turned 10 (min age) & is 1.4m tall (min height) l. She managed amazingly.


  • Had a fantastic time at Go Ape Matfen, the instructor was really helpful in guiding us through the first part as it was my first time here. The zip wires are so much fun, there's a knack to the landing, unluckily for me I didn't quite grasp it and had some spectacular crash landings, this just added to the fun. I would definately recommend this place to everyone, even if you are scared of heights, give it a go as you feel really safe all throughout the course with the safety wires you are always connected to. All in all we had a great time for my partners birthday. Thanks Go Ape!
