North Park – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Near Pittsburgh

Tennis Court Road, Allison Park, PA 15101

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.  One of our most scenic designs to date, 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!

Spend a day at North Park and you’ll probably only discover a fraction of what the park has to offer.  Before or after your Go Ape adventure, be sure to check out the park’s; golf course, boathouse, ice skating rink, swimming pool, tennis courts, fishing lake, ball fields, horesehoe pits, playgrounds, shelters / rental buildings, nature center, mountain biking and an assortment of walking, jogging and hiking trails.

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!)

It was a blast! I didn't want the course to end! We are hoping they will add more to the course because it's so much fun! the zip lines and the jumps were my favorite, they really give you a rush! Thank you for the experience, defiantly coming back in the future!
Rated 5 Bananas Heather - Treetop Adventure, on 13 October 2014
Loved every minute of it. There were 8 ladies in my group some of which have zip lined before and some who were afraid of heights. But hands down, all 8 of us loved it and want to come back. It was cool to have different difficulty levels for the obstacles, most of us chose the extreme routes. I personally thought it was a great experience because we did everything on our own, it felt more real and you got more in the moment.
Rated 5 Bananas Janet - Treetop Adventure, Treetop Junior, on 13 October 2014
I planned an outing inviting my Uncle and his two girls (11 and 13), my son and and his girlfriend (17 and 16) and my cousin. My cousin and I had done the course in Indiana 2 years ago and thought it was awesome! I live near North Park and was so excited to see a course location come to our area! It is a great opportunity to get the family together to do something different - something a little out of your comfort zone. Then having the bragging rights to say you did it! The first (actually 2nd) station is the scariest because you don't really know what to expect - and the platform seems so high! You are really concentrating on the details of the safety cables. Once you have zipped back to the ground, you can't wait to get to the next station and do it again! Very fun activity for a range of ages and abilities. I like the obstacle challenges (always taking the more difficult option) - the others liked the zip-lining and of course the Tarzan free fall.

WOW!!!!!!!!!! Unlike anything I have ever experienced! What a wild adventure and an awesome workout! I was sore for three days after! Who knew climbing in the tress could be so much fun! Can't wait to do it again. I am telling everyone how fun it is! So cool!!! Thank you! Loving it is an understatement :)
Rated 5 Bananas Lisa - Treetop Adventure, on 8 October 2014
We had a blast at Go Ape! My best running friends and I would go by every week on our long runs preparing for the Marine Corp and Pittsburgh Marathons. Every week for the past year and a half we would tell each other that once we ran our marathons, we were going to come back with our kids and do this course, and we FINALLY did it! The ages of our group ranged from 11 up to 50 and we all hung out together the entire time and had such a great morning. I liked that there were different options once up in the treetops for the more daring of our group and not quite so adventurous. We will definitely be back again!
