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!)

Rated 5 Bananas Wendy - Tree Top Adventure, on 2 August 2014
We loved it all. Great experience for me and my two teenage children.
Rated 5 Bananas Ashley - Tree Top Adventure, on 31 July 2014
definitely enjoyed the course, loved the variety of obstacles as well as the ziplining plus tarzan swings! would've loved for it to have been higher up in the trees with more daredevil adventures as well as more tarzan swings. but no complaints!
Rated 5 Bananas Chelsea - Tree Top Adventure, on 30 July 2014
My boyfriend and I had a great experience! We loved being able to go about the course at our own pace (we went pretty fast but still had a ton of fun!). We have been talking about becoming more active and getting out of the house more and GoApe was the perfect solution! We will definitely be returning sometime soon! We also had no idea that North Park was such a beautiful place and fully intend on spending more time in the area. :)
Rated 5 Bananas Cynthia - Tree Top Adventure, on 29 July 2014
I loved the commraderie established among my family and the other participants in our group. We all looked out for each other-made sure we were tethered securely-gave each other encouragement and positive reinforcement when we finished an especially difficult obstacle. The obstacles were challenging and exciting but doable for my 10 and 11-year-old children. The rope wall was awesome!!! I felt like a Ninja Warrior! Tons of Fun!
Rated 5 Bananas Kristen - Tree Top Adventure, on 29 July 2014
We had a great time on the course! It was super scary but fun at the same time because I always felt safe and knew I'd never fall or get stuck anywhere. I'm hoping to round up some friends to go again soon!
