I escorted two 10 year olds that had a blast doing the course. I do wish the group had been a bit smaller with less waiting time in the beginning of the course. 15 people in the group is a bit much. We had fun!

SO MUCH FUN!!! Our safety instructor, Dan, did a wonderful & comprehensive job of preparing us for the course ahead. He showed us all the hows and whys of the equipment in both an on-the-ground setting as well as taking us through a low practice course. By the time we began the full course on our own, my 10 yr old son and I felt confident about knowing what we needed to do in order to navigate the obstacles safely. Dan showed up thereafter at different points of the course to check on the guest's safety and progress, offering friendly correction and advice if needed. The course itself offered lots of fun, challenging obstacles, with the payoff of a zip line at the end of each section. My one regret is that I did not heed the recommendation to wear gloves. I have tough, callused hands and still ended up with blisters by the end but the experience was worth it! :-) Every staff member was friendly and helpful and we had so much fun -- we will definitely go again!

I was pleasantly surprised with how much fun and how difficult the adult (Gorilla) GoApe experience was. I scheduled a group of 16 for a team building event, and it was an absolute blast. I will definitely recommend the experience to my friends and family when they are looking for a fun and different type of activity.
