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

  • Minimum age: 10 years old
  • Minimum height: 1.4m

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

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