Freedom Park – Williamsburg, Virginia

Near Richmond & Hampton Roads

Go Ape’s first treetop adventure course (zip lines, obstacles and more!) in Virginia is just minutes from Colonial Williamsburg in Freedom Park.  Rich in historical significance, visitors will be able to explore the site of a 18th century cemetery, the Revolutionary War Battle of Spencer’s Ordinary and recreated cabins showing on the nation’s earliest Free Black Settlements in America.  In addition to being surrounded by history, the park features two miles of hiking trails and more than 20 miles of some of the best mountain biking trails in the region.  After your outdoor adventure, be sure to swing by the brand new visitor center and catch up on all the facts of the park.

Feedback from Freedom Park – Williamsburg, Virginia

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!)

Took grandson. He had a wonderful time and all our grandchildren love Go Ape. Would like to see a season pass created and we would use the facility more.

Laura was a great instructor.
Rated 5 Bananas Kristen - Tree Top Adventure, on 7 April 2014
I brought my parents with me to experience GoApe and though they are a little older, I thought they would be able to do it with little problem. Unfortunately, I was wrong! The staff at GoApe were extremely helpful and very accomodating to both of my parents to help get them through the course and I'm glad to say that they both completed the entire thing. They truly could not have done that without the help of the staff there (namely Taylor and the girl who trained us, I can't remember her name!!) I'm so appreciative for their help!
Rated 5 Bananas Lisa - Tree Top Adventure, Tree Top Junior, on 7 April 2014
My 9-year-old daughter and I enjoyed the Jr. course. It was perfect for her age and energy level. She played every minute of her session. My twelve-year-old son and husband completed the full course. They thought it was amazing!
Rated 5 Bananas Janet - Tree Top Adventure, on 7 April 2014
I booked this as a surprise for my husband's 67th birthday. He rocked by the way on your course and loved it! It was a good challenge for us both and a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon. The staff was friendly and helpful. The people that we met and did the course with were so much fun and made our day even more enjoyable. The only thing that I would change is having a photographer on staff. Thank you for an awesome day!
