Where are we going today?
Are you ready to go APE!? We can't hear you...are you ready to GO APE!
Great! Go Ape Treetop Adventure in Eagle Creek Park is waiting for those active families with children over 10 years, to take on the challenges that await you in the trees above!
The Go Ape Adventure Course is an amazing outdoor experience which gives everyone 2 or 3 hours of outdoor exercise, and most importantly FUN!
During your time on the course, you can swing, zip and climb your way through the tree! You can explore the park from a whole other angle. You will have a monkey or bird's point of view!
When you arrive, you will go through the process of putting on all your carabiners, pulleys and harnesses - that's because it's completely safe and you are in good hands! (Parents - you have nothing to worry about!). After this, everyone gets a 30 minute briefing, which includes training, and then you're let loose in the forest!
Now you're up in the forest canopy, you can feel free to fly on fun and often fast zip lines, or pretend you're Tarzan as you make your way through the branches on the Tarzan swings! Don't forget to look down - that's part of the fun!
The instructors are always on hand should you need anything, so there is always someone there if you need help.
Go Ape Treetop Adventure is a great way to spend time with the family. You can enjoy the course together, so you can encourage each other (but also have that friendly competition if you want it!)
It will really get your adrenalin pumping! Get out of your comfort zone, turn off those TVs and get up into the trees ...it's time to Go APE!

Me and my husband went for our anniversary and it was such a great experience. The instructors clearly explain everything; however, you get to complete the course on your own without feeling hovered over. They stay throughout the course on the ground and are very encouraging without being condescending. They were so nice and helpful. We had an amazing time and plan to go back again.

Awesome! My family of five went on this adventure and it was an adrenaline rush. We all had a great time and we would come back and do it again. This is not for the faint of heart but once you complete it you feel a great sense of accomplishment.
