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!)

When I first heard of the Go Ape course, I thought it would be an easy course, zip over here, zip there. This course was physically and mentally challenging for me (I have a fear of heights). The instructors were super supportive during the first Tarzan swing, this was the hardest part for me. Trusting that this piece of rope/harness would catch me and carry me to the net was hard to do. I liked that it was up in the front of the course it prepared you for what challenges lay ahead. I like the different paths you could take. Most of all the "go at your own pace" was just the icing on the cake. I can't tell you how relaxing it made the experience. I got to sit in the tree for a few minutes at each station and just look around and admire the beauty of the location. Even though I had to be rescued at a part in the course out of pure exhaustion; I couldn't stop talking about the experience for days! A wonderful adventure, I wish they offered the junior course so I could take some of my family to go at the North Park Location.
Rated 5 Bananas Elise - Treetop Adventure, on 12 November 2014
The course was extremely well done. I loved that we had the freedom to go at our own pace - and it was nice because there was only 4 of us (2 in my group and then another group of 2) so I didn't feel rushed at all. I did wish that it was a little longer than it was, but that is my only complaint. It was a really nice touch that when we finished site 5, our sweatshirts that we had shed earlier were waiting for us and that when we returned our harnesses the employee remembered my name and my sister's name and gave us the correct certificates. This is definitely something that I will do again and that I'd recommend to people in the future.

I was looking for a fun experience gift for an athletic teen who's love language seems to be quality time. It was awesome! It's a full-body workout and test of courage, for sure. It was a relief to see signs that allow you to request a refund if you want to change your mind once you see what you're in for, which is a lot of fun. But we did the extreme course at all of the decision points and loved every minute of it! There are parts with no handrails, tarzan swings, all kinds of bridges, nets, and the hardest for me was the hanging rings...our first extreme obstacle. Worthy challenges for this girl, and I loved the feeling of conquering all of them.

I loved the whole experience. It was exhilarating, challenging, and unique. I used muscle groups I haven't thought of in a while, and the soreness I had later was just a reminder of the fun I had conquering the extreme parts. Definitely coming back!
Rated 5 Bananas Cynthia - Treetop Adventure, on 31 October 2014
We had a great time. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable. The safety briefing was short but very thorough. We felt fully prepared to tackle our adventure. The course was varied and fun, as well as challenging. Very cool and unique adventure.
