Go Ape’s first treetop adventure course (zip lines, obstacles and more!) in Pennsylvania is just minutes from downtown Pittsburgh in North Park.  North Park, located within McCandless, Hampton and Pine Townships, is the largest and one of the most scenic of Allegheny County’s nine parks.

Go Ape North Park is set within a gorgeous pine forest, overlooking the park’s 63 acre lake.  More than just a canopy tour, the course is made up of numerous rope ladders, 41 exciting crossings to include the Double Stirrups, Bosun’s Chair, Flying Carpet and Spider’s Web, 2 Tarzan swings and 5 zip lines.  New for the USA, North Park will have two brand new “challenging” obstacles, the Pirate Crossing and Chantemerle Bridge.  Don’t worry; if you’re not up for the challenge, there are bypass routes throughout the course.  Overall, there are 5 individual sections within the course, each section taking you higher into the forest canopy and finishing with a zip line more exciting than the previous one!  Zip Line #3 and #4 are both well over 400 feet and the entire course consists of over 1,400 feet worth of zip lines!

Feedback from North Park

Take a look at what some of our tribe have said about their time in the forest. It's always good to hear it straight from the Gorilla's mouth (...and we're proud to say it’s totally unedited!)

Rated 5 Bananas Dave - Treetop Adventure, on 31 August 2015
This was truly an amazing experience. It was exhilarating, a great bonding experiencing, gives an awesome sense of accomplishment, and was really fun!
Rated 5 Bananas Brian - Treetop Adventure, on 29 August 2015
Fantastic experience. My wife son and I had a great time. Instructions were great and informative. Nice crew. I told my wife I should retire and do this full time.
Rated 5 Bananas Katie - Treetop Adventure, on 22 August 2015
My husband and I took our 12 year old niece on the course. I'm afraid of heights and was worried I wouldn't even be able to do the whole course because I'd be too scared. Boy was I wrong! I loved the whole experience and something about knowing the harness would hold me and having to help my niece made all the fear vanish. The instructors were helpful without being overbearing. We had a really great afternoon.
Rated 5 Bananas Jackie - Treetop Adventure, on 18 August 2015
Loved it!!! My favorite part was The Tarzan swing (5th course) - the one that drops you straight down initially then carries you to the net. I screamed in fright upon drop (already knowing what to expect, I still screamed for fear of 'falling') but the adrenaline rush was awesome! Very challenging at times but lots of fun to push myself to see what I could do!
