You should wear something that you don’t mind getting grubby. Dress for the weather so bring along a mac if it’s raining!

You need to make sure you have the correct footwear with closed toe and heel (with flat soles), no sandals or slip-off shoes.

Your stomach area will need to be covered and long hair must be tied back.

You can join the Treetop Challenge at Go Ape if you're:

  • Minimum age: 10 years old
  • Minimum height: 1.4m
  • Maximum weight: 130kg

Please note: Adults must supervise children between the ages of 10-15.

  • Under 13: One participating adult can supervise four children aged 12 and under.
  • 13-15 Years Old: One adult can supervise up to eight children aged 13-15 years while on the course or on the ground.

Go Ape is an excellent wet weather activity! The course remains open in all weathers, except when it is icy, stormy, in high winds or during lightning. Rain makes the course muddier than usual – which all adds to the fun! Don’t forget to dress for the weather.

Sometimes, unfortunately, a course may need to be closed for reasons beyond Go Ape's control, if this happens you will be given a full refund.
