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!

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 Ingrid - Treetop Adventure, on 21 July 2015
I felt pretty cocky going into it. I'm not afraid of heights, I think I'm in good shape, etc. The first Tarzan jump I actually felt a little nervous. Nothing too bad, but definitely a little jittery, like, here we go! I tried to do all the extreme parts of the course. The ring portion was the most challenging, but I felt great when I got done. By the time I got to the second Tarzan swing, I was feeling very empowered and just jumped for it! It was exhilarating and freeing! I have told all my friends they have to do it. It's a great course, and it was so much fun to do it with a friend, make memories, encourage each other along, and watch each other fall on our butts in the woodchips at the end of the ziplines!

My friend and I had an amazing time at Go Ape. Jen was so helpful throughout the course and so encouraging. I loved all of the obstacles and even managed to do the second Tarzan swing that at first terrified me. We both said we would definitely be coming back and hopefully with a big group of our friends. I'm actually hoping to bring my bridal party in October as a pretty wedding bonding experience!!

We had a great experience from the beginning to the end. The adventure really started at the preview of the web site. It was informative, user friendly and attractive. When we got there, we were greeted by an energetic receptionist who was very helpful in explaining the wavers. After filling out the paperwork, we were ushered to the practice area and given instructions, equipment and practice time to get familiar with the set ups of the treetop order of operation. Red, blue, pulley, blue will become second nature to you as you learn to "always stay attached"! The Go Ape employees were so awesome in their watchful eye and helpful hints. We then tried a few stations, and were set out to find adventure on our own. I loved the opportunity to go fast or slow, challenge ourselves, or just relax thru the treetops. The course was very well mapped out and we even had fun when the rain started and the downpours hit. A true ape experience. Nature lovers and adventurers beware, you're not going to want to leave, and definitely bring your camera, it's worth the photos. Thank you Go Ape, North Park, I can't wait to come back for my next adventure!
