What is there to do?

Who is ready for some outdoor adventure! If you want to channel Tarzan, or enjoy a birds eye view of Allison Park, then Go Ape North Park is where you might want to head!

Go Ape North Park is the FIRST treetop adventure course in the state, and it features a host of activities and obstacles that those active climbers have to over come. 

Set in a beautiful pine forest, and overlooking the 63 acre lake set inside the park, Go Apre is so much more than just a canopy tour! The course itself is made up of a number of rope ladders, as well as two Tarzan swings and 5 super fun zip lines!

Did you know there are 41 exciting crossings to overcome too? From the Spider's Web, to the Double Stirrups - the perfect adventure for the day! Across the whole course, there are five individual sections, with each one taking you higher and higher into the treetops, preparing you for the big zipline finish at the end!

Are you excited to hear that two of the zip lines are over 400 feet? In fact, in the entire Go Ape course there are over 1,400ft worth of zip lines to tackle! Eek!

Go Ape is great for different experience and fitness levels too. If you don't want to challenge yourself in certain areas, there are bypass routes throughout the whole course. 

When you arrive, the friendly staff will start by equipping you with harnesses, pulleys and carabiners, and give you a 30 minute safety briefing and training and let you loose into the forest canopy.  Of course, instructors are always on hand, regularly patrolling the forests. 

The Go Ape Treetop Adventure course gets the adrenalin pumping, gets kids out of their comfort zones and above all, it’s a great outdoor activity for families! Let's go APE!
