We were bought this as a wedding gift and couldn't wait to get up in the trees. The staff were all really helpful and friendly and our instructor Mia was excellent at providing us with the essential safety training before we were allowed to monkey about on our own. The zip wire at the end is so much fun!

We visited Go Ape at Leeds Castle for my daughters 11th birthday party. We had never been before so were a bit nervous booking her party without knowing the centre but definitely should not have worried. The booking process was very easy and informative. Upon arrival they were very efficient and the girls were up climbing in no time at... More

Our party of four had a great time here. The whole course took just over three hours. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The safety side was explained thoroughly. The treetop adventure was challenging and exciting and the zip wires offered great views! I highly recommend!

My youngest aged 8 is not good with heights. He LOVED this!! The safety briefing was great and instructors are all around so any concerns they are right on it. Credit to Shelly today she was amazing with the children that were struggling giving clear instructions to them on where to hold the rope and put feet. Needless to say... More

Loved where you could just climb explore I've been here a few times and still love it. Just be prepared to have bark on your legs 👌

We booked for the children to do something different whilst visiting family nearby. My 18 yr old took part to supervise my youngest child as I'm not physically able to do it, much to my disappointment as the zip wires look awesome. The staff were friendly and seemed happy in their work. It took over 2.5hrs to complete the course... More

We took a group of girls age 10+ for the junior adventure, It was fantastic. The instructions on arrival were made very clear and the instructors helped and encouraged the girls. A special mention for Mia who took the time to help a couple of girls who got scared to support them the rest of the way round to achieve... More

Really good day! Was worried at first that I would be doing it all myself. But i was panicking over nothing. Thought I wouldn't see. Any girls doing it either but I would say it was pretty equal and mixed ages. Definitely would go again and definitely would try the other locations. Can't wait to go again!

Great location and good parking spaces and a great fun experience with good zip line and good for a variety of ages. Very safe too. I've been to a couple other go ape places in different locations but the Leeds castle location has been best so far, visit on a sunny day is best as outdoors of course and maybe... More
