Tree-top adventure! (Go Ape) – Sun 14 Sept - £32

  • September 14, 2014 · 10:45 AM

Ready for a tree-top, Tarzan-style adventure?? : )

We are going to Trent Park, for a fun and adrenaline-packed day out at Go Ape, the UK’s number one forest adventure and tree-top obstacle course!

The Go Ape experience involves fun and adventure across five sections and features the award winning tree top crossings, tunnels, bridges and a wind-in-your-face zip wire to finish.

Trent Park is one of their new sites and features the epic new Skateboard Zips! So you can have an exhilarating and breathtaking experience of skating  through the trees on a zip wire!!!

Trent Park recently added a new second course which we will be taking, as some of us have done the 'old' course before.

Doing Go Ape does require a degree of physical fitness but if you can climb up a rope ladder you should be fine.

What to wear - something you don’t mind getting grubby.

Dress for the weather so bring along a mac if it’s raining!

Make sure your stomach area is covered.

Please wear appropriate footwear with soles with good grips.

No sandals or slip-off shoes. You’ll need closed toe shoes.

Gloves are recommended. You can buy them on the side for £3.

Long hair must be tied back.


Safety - Go Ape courses are substantial and physically testing tree-top obstacle courses. There is inevitably a risk of injury when undertaking such activities. Participants will be responsible for attaching themselves to the safety system. If you do not attach yourself to the safety system you risk falling, which could result in a serious or fatal injury. All participants receive a safety briefing from a trained instructor at the start and have to wear a safety harness at all times.

Weather - Go Ape is a great wet weather activity. The course remains open in all weathers, except when it’s icy, stormy or during lightning. Rain makes the course muddier – just make sure you dress for it!

Cameras – cameras are allowed on the course as long as they are secured to you by a lanyard and tucked away to prevent them from getting caught. Bring your own lanyard or buy one on the site (£2)

Spectators - you may have as many people as you like watching you going ape through the trees. They will not be able to enter the course, but can watch, take pictures and laugh from the paths below

There should be a basic storage facilities for your belongings at the cabin.

Changing facilities - there are toilets on site where you can change before and after your Go Ape experience.

    Wow what an adventure. Even with being rescued I had a great time. I have a video of the tartan swing if anyone is interested but it won't let me upload a video to the meetup site.No one from our group but it's still good and scarey to watch!
