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.

What an amazing experience. The staff was wonderful! I'm afraid of heights and so is one of my boys, but they talked him through when he was absolutely terrified to step off the ledge. Needless to say, he did and only completed the first obstacle, but I'm proud to say I did all 5 and while it was scary, I overcame my fear to some degree. I think I felt safe knowing I was attached to something at all time and would not fall to the ground if I made a mistake.

The course was challenging but very enjoyable. I did the course with my 11 year old son and he had a blast. We have done other treetop course but this course was a great value. We will be back.

Climbing was decent. Nothing too challenging and way too short of an experience for a $58 ticket. Our group of 4 was finished within an hour of starting. I have been to several other similar parks and this experience was not worth the drive or price. Staff was nice but far and few between. The layout and quality of equipment was great. Elements were not challenging enough and session was too short.

I was with two adults in their 20s and a 10 year old, and we had such a good time! It was raining but that meant we had more time for ourselves and it was still just as fun up in the trees! The quality of this experience for the price you pay is an AMAZING VALUE! I've already recommended this to multiple people. Everyone should go!!!

My husband and I had so much fun doing the course together. We laughed, and encouraged one another to dig deep and keep going. There were times I didn't think I would finish the course and suddenly an instructor would be there to give encouragement and praise! They must have eyes in the back of their heads! I was so proud of myself and my husband!

This was an awesome experience. My family and I did a zip line adventure in Puerto Rico a couple of years back and this experience at Shelby Farms was by far a much more exciting experience with cool obstacle courses in addition to the zips. It's a lot of bang for the buck!
