Go Ape is the UK’s No.1 Forest Adventure
Days out with us are about living life a little more adventurously, having fun with friends and family and getting in touch with your inner Tarzan (he’s in there, we promise!)
Delamere in Cheshire
The classic and original Go Ape Tree Top Adventure experience. We’ll brief you for safety before you fly down our zip-wires, leap off our Tarzan Swing and tackle our crossings whilst enjoying some of Britain’s most breathtaking scenery. Life’s so much more fun when you’re jumping off a tree-top platform into a cargo net.
And the adventure does not need to stop there. You can get off the beaten track and enjoy our latest forest adventure with Go Ape Forest Segway – an epic experience with a down to earth twist.
And Delamere Forest is also home to our Tree Top Junior Adventure for Tiny Tarzans. Release your little monkeys onto a Go Ape course designed for them. No one loves adventure more than kids!
