inspiring adventure & giving back

In the mid 2000s,  our founders were looking to launch a business with a vision of giving back to our local communities through outdoor adventure and environmental stewardship. They stumbled upon a network of zip line and aerial adventure courses in the UK and formed a partnership to bring the idea to the United States. Frederick, Maryland became home base for the team and their vision sprung to life with the very first Go Ape USA course in Rockville, Maryland.

 

Through partnerships with public parks across the country, our vision has become a reality. Every local community where you find a Go Ape Treetop Adventure and Treetop Junior, we give money back through a revenue share with our partners. 

 

Go Ape provides the capital investment, designs, builds and operates each course. Park and preserve partners pay nothing, but receive a percentage of each ticket sale to reinvest back into their local communities.

 

Flash forward to today, Go Ape Treetop Adventures can be found throughout the country in fourteen states (with more being added every year) and we have a thriving team of +200 rock stars.

 

Since the very beginning, Go Ape has been focused on a mission: Inspire everyone to live life adventurously. And despite the rapid pace of change, all of us at Go Ape remain true to our original vision of giving back to our local communities.

 

For some, an adventure may mean doing something just outside of their comfort zone; like learning a new language, running a big race or overcoming a fear of heights. Whatever adventure means to you, we’re glad you've found us. This is our story of adventure. What's yours?


Our Mission

We want to inspire everyone to live life adventurously.
Life is just better with adventure.

Our values

Inspire everyone to live life adventurously

We start by making adventure more accessible. We believe that you shouldn''t have to go far to find it. Then we look to challenge, surprise and excite people. We're passionate about motivating people to swap 'I can't' for 'I can'.

Provide a tree-mendous guest experience

A Go Ape Treetop Adventure is so much more than just zip lines and obstacles. It’s a shared experience that bonds our guests. Our instructors aim to create a safe and positive environment where guests can challenge themselves and push beyond their comfort zones.

Be socially and environmentally responsible

We strive to preserve and maintain our natural environment while encouraging others to rediscover the local beauty all around. We take that commitment further by using our voice to educate and inspire stewardship throughout the Go Ape community.

Do the right thing

We just want to do the right thing. Do good whenever and however. Be the good in the world. Sure it sounds simple, but we mean it.

A great experience and confidence builder. It was intimidating at first, but with all of the safety devices in place, soon we were climbing all over and swinging through the air. I have a 13, 15, and 17 year old, and the whole family was able to enjoy it.

Our group of three ranged in age from 13 to 70 and we all loved it. The gear was all in excellent condition. The preparation activities were thorough and encouraging. The different stations along the way stretched our capabilities along with our minds and muscles, along with producing lots of laughs. Having a few places with options for the degree of difficulty added to the fun. We came home feeling proud of our achievements, and loving our newly created family memories. Thanks!

It was a fantastic experience from start to finish. Online booking and reservation was a snap. The staff was wonderful (friendly, helpful, safety-first attitude), and my son and I had a blast. We've added this to our must-do list and will be back with more friends and family.

We had a great time. My daughter concurred her fear of heights (age 17). It was the best time all of us had together our entire week visit to Myrtle Beach- my 11 year old cant stop talking about it! Thanks for making our trip special and definately something to remember. I hope you open a Go Ape in Wisconsin soon!
