Best experience! Fun course and friendly staff. This is the 3rd zip line location my kids have tried and their favorite. Safety was a top priority, but they still helped us have a great time.

Hi Carmen, I'm sorry to hear that your recent Go Ape experience was not a positive one. While we strive to make Go Ape a tree-mendously fun experience for all, safety is always our number one priority and, unfortunately, sometimes that does mean enforcing rules...More

I try to visit go ape whenever I can. It is great for a fun couples day and equally good for family fun and exercising instead of starring at cell phones all day is much better for bonding.

My family and I had a blast at Go Ape. Everyone was terrific. The staff payed close attention to what ways going on so you felt very safe. We cannot wait to go again.

Are there bathrooms on the course and can you use them once you are harnessed. Just checking since you never know when kids or us adults will need to go :)

The bathrooms are a 1 minute walk across a park road, so very close by. An instructor will have to help you take off the harness and put it back on again. Two of us spent 2 hours on the course going at a pretty good pace... More

Do guides accompany guests throughout the course? Most of the course I have done in the past are this way. I like the security of knowing a trained professional attaches me each time!

My 8 year old did not meet the height requirements. I had to do the junior course with her.
