Get tickets to the Go Ape Treetop Challenge for the perfect family day out in Temple Newsam

This feat of endurance and skill is perfect if you’re brave enough! With 17-metre-high platforms, you’ll need to engage both your mind and body as you scale the tree to tree crossings that make up this high ropes course.

The 13-metre Plummet is not for the fainthearted, but it is the quickest way back down to earth. Go Ape claim that some thrill seekers use this as a bungee warm up... you’ll get the picture!

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

  • Minimum age: 10 years old

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

  • 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.
