Treetop Adventure Frequently Asked Questions

What is Go Ape Treetop Adventure?

Go Ape Treetop Adventure is an exhilarating outdoor high ropes experience aimed at younger children under 6, or those wishing to build their confidence. It is set amidst the tree tops, offering a unique and challenging adventure for participants.

Is there an age limit for participants?

As long as participants are 1m tall, there is no upper age limit for Treetop Adventure. Adult only groups may wish to consider Treetop Challenge at Go Ape Woburn or Go Ape Coventry due to the increased difficulty of the course compared to Treetop Adventure or Treetop Adventure Plus.

Do I need to supervise while on the course?

For adventurers under 6 years old, the presence of a supervising adult on the course is mandatory and one participating adult (18+) can supervise up to two children aged under 6 while on the course. Participating adults will need to purchase a ticket.

Do I need to be physically fit to participate?

Go Ape designs its adventures to be as accessible as possible. Our high ropes courses require a degree of physical fitness but if you can climb up a rope ladder you will be fine.

What should I wear and bring for the adventure?

We recommend you wear gloves for comfort. Bring your own or pre-order our recommended gloves and collect from our cabin.

We suggest that you wear something you don’t mind getting grubby. Dress for the weather so bring along a mac if the forecast is for rain.

You need to make sure you have the correct footwear which can’t fall off easily. This should offer protection to your toes and heels. Please do not wear sandals, flip flops, Crocs, slip-off or high heel shoes.

Your stomach area will need to be covered to prevent the harness rubbing, and long hair must be tied back to prevent entanglements in the equipment.

Can I bring my camera or smartphone on the course?

Please do! You’re going to want to capture these moments to share! In order to keep your gadgets and others safe we do ask that all phones and cameras are attached to the participant.

Do I need to book in advance?

Yes, it's recommended to book in advance, especially during peak times. We offer flexible booking terms:

  • Up to 7 days before your activity, you can cancel an existing booking and receive a full refund, minus the booking fee*. You can also move your booking free of charge.
  • Up to 48 hours before your activity, you can move the activity date, subject to availability. This will incur a £5 administration charge. Any requests to move or cancel must be made by telephoning the booking line: 01603 895500. A refund is not possible within the 7-day period before your activity date.
  • Within 48 hours of your activity date, if Go Ape are operational, you will not be entitled to move your booking, or receive any refunds for cancellations.

*If you originally moved your booking within the 7-day period, you will not be eligible for a refund on the moved booking. If your booking is made less that 7 days before your activity date, it is non-refundable.

What happens in case of inclement weather?

Go Ape is an excellent wet weather activity. Our courses are substantially sheltered from rain and wind by the trees themselves. So as long as you’re appropriately dressed for the weather you should still have great memories of your experience. The course remains open in all weathers, except thick ice, thunderstorms and gales. Rain makes the course muddier than usual – which can add to the fun, but you might want dry clothes to change into for the journey home.

If we have to close for unsafe weather conditions, we will offer you a refund, credit note or reschedule your booking. If unsafe weather is forecasted we will aim to make the decision as early as possible, and will do our best to contact you to try and save you a wasted journey.

Is the experience suitable for team-building or group events?

Absolutely! Go Ape Treetop Adventure is a fantastic choice for birthday parties, trips for schools or youth groups.

Can I purchase gift vouchers for Go Ape Treetop Adventure?

Yes, we offer Treetop Adventure gift vouchers that make for fantastic presents.
