What a fantastic morning! We were exploring the Peak District for the Bank holiday weekend and fancied an adventure in the trees. Such great fun and quite the workout for those of us with no upper body strength. Our guide THOROUGHLY went through instructions and safety, multiple times (and even after all the demonstrations and practice one of the ladies... More

I went to go ape on a surprise date with my partner. I never realised how scared of heights I actually am until this day. It was terrifying but once I got used to it, it was brilliant. The staff are amazing and I really enjoyed myself. At the end of the session I felt a real sense of accomplishment... More

If you like swinging through trees & zip wires then this will be 3 hours well spent. Enjoyable from star to finish, staff are amazing, freindly & always on hand to help. Highly recommend if visiting the area

Well organised. Trainers ensured full understanding of equipment and risks. Trial area at ground level to make sure everyone could cope with the gear. 4 young adults (19-23 years) took about 90 minutes to get safely round the whole route. We were able to watch (free of charge) and take photos from beneath for most of their route. They thoroughly... More

We really enjoyed our first Go Ape experience!! I went myself with my 2 kids, aged 13 and 10. The level of challenge was just right - we all agreed it was just exciting enough to make it fun but there was nothing that felt scary or too complicated. The staff were really friendly and helpful. They help out at... More

my partner and I were bought go ape tickets as a gift and we took advantage of them last week, the staff were great and very helpful, the whole experience felt very safe (coming from someone who is terrified of heights) There are some times 'easier' and 'harder' ways to go which is great if there are people with different...

Visited whilst holidaying in the Peak District. Booked the night before online - very easy on arrival as all we needed to do was sign our life away, get kitted up and ready to go! Staff very friendly and efficient. Went through clear instructions to make sure everyone knew what they were doing and you are then free to go... More

Our first family outing to Go Ape, with 2 'wary of heights' members, however, the initial safely briefing and practice was well administered. Good challenge and great for all involved. It did take us nearly 3.5 hours to get around, but some of that came from helping younger members of our group with checking clipping and unclipping. We did have... More

Booked online on Saturday for Sunday - obviously buggered that up as when we arrived my booking was for Saturday!! Lovely helpful staff sorted us out though and after a run through of safety / gear / rules etc - we were unleashed on the trees.... 3 hours later I was a beaten man! The design and idea of these...
