What happens on the day?
When you arrive at your chosen location, and before you head up onto the course, you’ll be given a safety briefing by one of the qualified instructors. Here you’ll learn and try out the obstacles at low levels, and get to grips with the equipment. It’s not complicated, but it is important stuff and will give you the confidence to enjoy your time in the trees.
After your training you won’t be supervised. You’ll be responsible for yourself but of course, instructors are always on hand if you need them, regularly patrolling the forests. Make your way through the course at your own speed – on average it takes between two to three hours to complete. Obstacles and course lengths differ per location.

Opening times vary at each of the tree top adventure sites. Courses close during December and January, partly because of the winter weather and partly so they can maintain the courses to their high Go Ape standards. Opening times vary on daylight hours – some open at 08.00 in the summer for those really keen gorillas and monkeys.
We recommend you book at least six weeks in advance to ensure that dates are available. This is only a guideline and we advise you to book as early as possible to ensure that dates are available before the expiry date listed on your voucher. All bookings are subject to availability.
How long should I allow for this experience?
The Go Ape adventure takes approximately 2 to 3 hours to complete and that includes your safety briefing.
Can I bring spectators?
Yes – that’s a great idea to get them in the forest. You can have as many of your pri-mates as you want capturing those swinging moments (except Woburn Safari Park where you can bring only one spectator). So make sure they have their cameras at the ready.
