Where are we going today?

Who's ready to GO APE! Those active kids over 10 years old can swing through the trees like Tarzan at Go Ape Lums Pond State Park!

This Treetop Adventure Course will give the whole family an amazing outdoor experience for 2 to 3 hours. Lots of fun and exercise is waiting! Set within the stunning Lums Pond State Park, you will certainly be feeling like a bird!

The course itself has...wait for it...FOUR zip lines which will take you all over Lums Pond - which happens to be the largest freshwater pond in the entire state! Go Ape Lums Pond State Park is so much more than just a canopy tour. 

Kids will almost be channeling monkeys and apes as you climb over and tackle rope ladders, and 42 exciting crossings which include a Flying Carpet and ZigZag Trapeze!

There are even 2 Tarzan swings....(keep an eye out for Jane!).  In total, there are five fun individual areas within the course itself, with each section taking you higher...and higher...and higher...into the canopy! It just means when you finish you have to come down - by the very fun zip lines over 650 feet long!

Don’t worry, there are always very experienced instructors throughout the course that will be there on hand in case you need any help. 

Once you have finished, you can still keep the adrenaline going in the state park itself, with over 200 acres to play in, and kayaking and disc golf courses to entertain you! 

An amazingly active family day out for the whole family!

Need a little extra help?

To course requires upper body strength and the ability to be able to climb a rope ladder. They have had a number of guests with learning disabilities, or who are blind, deaf, or are amputees, so you can book with a guide if you think you can still make the course. .
