Highest Go Ape in the country plus NEW Forest Segways It's so high you can see all the way to Scotland. Enjoy a Tree Top Adventure with us in our beautiful forest, riding zip slides through skies, over water and in England's only true mountain forest. We're sure you'll love the spectacular views of the Lake District. Swinging through the canopy, wiping out at the bottom of zip wires and going on an adventure brings people together like nothing else we've ever seen. It really does. 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. And you can get off road and enjoy our epic forest adventure with Go Ape Forest Segway - an awesome segway experience in the Lakes with a down to earth twist. A great idea for a day out in the North Lakes (and home to Bassenthwaite ospreys), this is Go Ape at its most untamed.

This is the third venue of Go Ape we have tried and I would say it was the most physically demanding (that could be because we tackled it at then end of a week climbing peaks in the lake district!)....We were a group of 5,...More

We did the forest Segway twice! Vicky was an excellent tutor and we all had a great time. Would definitely do it again sometime.

Best Go Ape we have done. Lots of the high thrills you would expect and well organised. The park is beautiful which adds to the enjoyment.

It would be fair to say that I am scared of heights. Being attached in at least two and often three places ought to be reassuring. For me it wasn't and I was supposed to be the responsible adult. After two of the five courses...More
