Moors Valley

Nestled between the New Forest and the beaches of the south coast, Moors Valley is a picture perfect location for an adventurous day out. With a whopping five adventures available, there’s an adventurous experience for all thrill and skill levels.  

Little ones can bounce through the dappled canopy of the Nets Adventure – giant, ball filled suspended nets!  

If your young daredevils are looking for high thrills, Treetop Adventure is the perfect entry level into the treetops with wobbly crossings and over 70m dual zips!  Treetop Adventure Plus lets you climb higher, leap and crawl your way through twisty crossings and take on an even longer zip!  Treetop Challenge is the big one for ape sized adventurers! You’ll feel like a real monkey as you clamber 11m skywards and master your landing on five zip lines – one of which includes a skateboard!  

Prefer to stay on the ground? We’ve also got an hour of challenging woodland trails if you’re up for exploring on our all-terrain Forest Segways

MORE ADVENTURE AT MOORS VALLEY

This award-winning location is just 10-miles north of Bournemouth. A popular, buzzing site, Moors Valley welcomes around 750,000 visitors each year and with acres of forest and park jammed pack with things to do, there’s something for everyone.

There are two adventure play areas - one for older children with a zip slide, space net, climbing boulder and a fortress of towers and crossings and a younger children’s area with gentler slides and swings.

Pack up the kids and head for the Play Trail (suitable for pushchairs). 

They will love discovering and exploring the wooden play structures such as the giant Ants Nest, Snake Pit and Crocodile Crossing.

On your way around look out for the Tree Top Trail, a five-metre high, 200-metre long wooden walkway up in the trees (sorry, this bit is not suitable for pushchairs).

If you like a leisurely walk, there are many miles of paths and tracks for you to explore the park and forest. There are also five cycling trails so bring the bike or hire some and try one of the family, moderate or challenging routes.

Bring a picnic or grab a bite in Seasons Restaurant.

  • Absolutely exciting experience for my son and a bit scary but fun one for myself! lovely and friendly staff. Definitely going up the trees again soon.

    Jie Li

  • Great experience, went to do something a bit different and it was certainly that ! I was nervous about remembering all the instructions but once underway it seemed to come really easy and rather than worrying about the safety we enjoyed the challenges (you can make most of the crossings as easy or hard as you like). Instructor was great and there was only a small group (would recommend going at quieter times).

    Debbie

  • Go ape was a very well organised and amazing experience for the children. The staff were friendly and professional at all times. However we found the parking charges and the price of food and drink to be very expensive.

    Victor owen

  • Amazing experience we had at Go Ape, great course and amazing views. Will definitely be back soon!

    Rebecca Jones

  • A really fun and enjoyable experience. The staff were very helpful and their excitement and motivation is contagious. Thankyou for a great day.

    Daryl Pearce

  • Great adventure! Hard but fun and exciting. I did it with my daughter and she was so proud to have conquered the trees! It was a fantastic activity for both of us. Instructors were great, knowledgable and friendly. We will go back! Thank you!
