North Park – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

(NEW for 2013 – NOW OPEN!)

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!)

Rated 5 Bananas Amy - Tree Top Adventure, on 14 April 2014
I brought my son for his 10th birthday. We both had a phenomenal time and definitely intend to return! We were extremely satisfied with this amazing experience and thought the staff was one of a kind! Great great outing! I have been showing pictures and recommending it to all my friends and patients!
Rated 5 Bananas Mary - Tree Top Adventure, on 10 April 2014
I loved it! I was a little unsure if I could do all that climbing but I was made to feel very comfortable and at ease. I also felt very safe because I knew help was always nearby!
Rated 5 Bananas Angie - Tree Top Adventure, on 7 April 2014
We are a family of 5 with age range 10yrs, 12yrs, and 15yrs old kids. We had a absolute blast but now understand the age setting. The obstacles can be sometimes pretty tough on the younger ones especially the Tarzan ones when it comes to strength and the obstacles are pretty high, but we all succeeded and definitely plan to come back!
Rated 5 Bananas Beverly - Tree Top Adventure, on 7 April 2014
Liked the variety of course design. Had group of various ages and ability, we all found it challenging. A fun afternoon for sure!
Rated 5 Bananas Cheryl - Tree Top Adventure, on 4 November 2013
