Know Before You Go

What should I bring with me?

You may take cameras, phones, or any other device on the course as long as they are secured to you and tucked away to prevent them from getting caught or falling to the ground. Water is available on the course, but you may also bring a water bottle if it can be attached with a carabiner to your harness (please bring your own carabineer). We don’t recommend you bring a bag with you into the trees because they are bulky, but if you must bring a bag, it should fit closely to your body and may not interfere with the harness or related Go Ape gear.

Know Before You Go

  • ARRIVE 15 MINUTES EARLY TO FILL OUT THE DISCLAIMER
  • MAKE SURE PHONES/CAMERAS ARE SECURED OR FIT IN YOUR POCKET
  • WEAR CLOSED TOE, FLAT SHOES

We did this as a team building exercise, and did have a couple that were afraid of heights. They did it, hung in there, and we ALL loved it! The course was a blast!

I had a groupon and the online booking was confusing so I called instead. I was put on hold for 20 minutes, than it took another 20 minutes to make the reservation. She asked for a lot of personal info that I felt was unnecessary to make a reservation. I understand that I would be signing forms when I arrived. But all you need is a name to make a reservation.

The course design, and difficulties were just the right amount of challenge, and fun for my wife and I. We had the best time traversing the course, and enjoyed every moment of it. I would recommend the Go Ape experience to anyone seeking a professional and quality adventure course. We look forward to returning to Go Ape sites in the future.

I only gave 3 bananas for value for the money and likely to come back. Both were based on your advertised price, it's a bit high. With that being said, if I can book for the half price special i saw advertised I will give both 5 bananas. I would go at least once a year. The experience was fantastic, We did a father daughter day out. At 61, I can now cross zip lining off my bucket list. What a blast!

The Tarzan swing and ziplines were the best parts but overall the course wasn't as difficult as I'd hoped. I guess it's because I've done something similar at another facility and so, I had some experience coming in. The instructor Becka and entire staff were awesome and friendly! Keep it up!
