Go Ape’s first treetop adventure course (zip lines, obstacles and more!) in Virginia is just minutes from Colonial Williamsburg in Freedom Park.  Two outdoor activities are available for the whole family to enjoy, our original Treetop Adventure course or Treetop Junior for adventuring with younger kids.

Go Ape Treetop Adventure

ages 10+ and 4’7″ and taller

Voted #1 Outdoor Adventure for the Eastern region of Virginia by readers of Virginia Living Magazine, Go Ape Freedom Park is one of our biggest treetop adventure courses yet.  More than just a canopy tour, the course consists of numerous rope ladders, 37 new and exciting crossings to include the Trapeze, Wobbly Ladder, Big U and Spider’s Web, 2 tarzan swings and 5 zip lines.  There are 5 individual sections within the course, each section taking you higher into the forest canopy and finishing with a zip line more exciting than the previous one!  Zip Line #5, the grand finale to the course, is a mammoth 600 foot ride!

Feedback from Freedom Park

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 carol - Treetop Adventure, on 8 December 2015
This was my 2nd time going and my husband's 1st. My first time was in July ( a Birthday Gift to myself) Rockville, MD. We both think it was awesome and a great " get off the couch" activity. Would love it to be different at each location so we can add going to each coarse to our bucket list. We are avid travelers and that would give us a destination goal. Always looking for new places to go. Especially love the Tarzan Swing and then the zip lines. I just turned my daughter and son in law ( who has a fear of heights) on to the "Go Ape family". I gifted them the experience and they BOTH absolutely loved it. We are planning to go again in Maryland and hope to get a team of people to go with us. Great Work Go Ape team...Thank You! Oh and by the way I am 53 and my husband 60. So look out young people here we come....LOL.... and yes we did keep up with everyone else in fact we surpassed many.

This was the third time that we had visited this Go Ape course and have yet to leave feeling anything other than extremely satisfied. The instructors are extremely helpful and knowledgeable which added to our experience. I will continue to recommend this course to anyone that is feeling adventurous and interested in challenging themselves.

Rated 5 Bananas mary Ann - Treetop Junior, on 16 November 2015
We were very impressed at how well laid out the courses are as well as how challenging yet user friendly the junior course is. This is a very well organized and fun place for us to take our grandchildren.
