Things to Do: Go Ape Treetop Adventure

Go Ape’s first course in Virginia is just minutes from Colonial Williamsburg in Freedom Park.  Rich in historical significance, visitors will be able to explore the site of a 18th century cemetery, the Revolutionary War Battle of Spencer’s Ordinary and recreated cabins showing on the nation’s earliest Free Black Settlements in America.  In addition to being surrounded by history, the park features two miles of hiking trails and more than 20 miles of some of the best mountain biking trails in the region.  After your outdoor adventure, be sure to swing by the brand new visitor center and catch up on all the facts of the park.

Our biggest treetop adventure course yet, is made up of numerous rope ladders, 37 new and exciting crossings to include the Trapeze, Wobbly Ladder, Small U and Spider’s Web, 2 tarzan swings and 5 zip lines.  There are 5 individual sections within the course, each section taking you higher into the forest canopy and finishing with a zip line more exciting than the previous one!  Zip #5, the grand finale to the course, is a mammoth 600 foot ride!

It’s not in the dictionary, but if it was, Go Ape would be described as a ‘treetop adventure’.

They take one lush, green forest and a healthy dose of breathtaking scenery; blend with a smattering of treetop high wires, tricky crossings (using ladders, walkways, bridges and tunnels made of wood, rope and super-strong wire) and wind-in-your-face zip lines; finished off with a mega dose of people in search of their inner Tarzan.

They equip adventurers with harnesses, pulleys and carabiners, give them a 30 minute safety briefing and training and let them loose into the forest canopy, free to fly on zip lines and swing through the trees. Of course, instructors are always on hand, regularly patrolling the forests (not in monkey suits unfortunately!)

The result is spectacular. The Go Ape outdoor adventure experience gets the adrenalin pumping, gets people out of their comfort zones and above all (no pun intended).
