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!)

Rated 5 Bananas Kendra - , on 10 July 2014
We loved that we could have our small group of 4 and enjoy the course at our own pace! It was great being able to have instructors nearby but not chaperoning the experience!

We enjoyed the course and the safety of the course. It was humid and hot which added to the sweat levels but water was provided at each adventure as well as we could rest as long as we needed. we did not feel rushed to leave even though we were at the last time slot of the day. we would like to bring our 8 year old grandson because we think he would welcome the challange and pride in accomplishing the jr treetop experience. thank you everyone for making our adventure fun
