One of the best days out in Yorkshire: They don't call this the Great Yorkshire Forest for nothing. With hilltop-to-hilltop zip wires and a plunging valley below, it's easy to see why our adventure at Dalby Forest is so popular. It's simply stunning. Our Tree Top Adventure involves fun and adventure across six sites. Each site features our award winning high ropes, crossings, tunnels, bridges and epic wind-in-your-face zip wires to finish.With hilltop-to-hilltop zip wires and a plunging valley below, it's easy to see why our adventure at Dalby Forest is so popular. It's simply stunning. 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 NEW experience with a down to earth twist. And Dalby 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!

Never been before and didn't know what to expect. It was fantastic. I don't think I've laughed so much. Had an amazing time. The instructors were very thorough and picked up straight away in our training sessions any mistakes we'd made and made sure we knew how to do it properly. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. Really fun... More

Thorough safety training, easy to use belay system and a good amount of obstacles. Pretty nerve racking but lots of fun. One for the to do list if you haven't done it. Good value for money and friendly staff. The forest is lovely and peaceful. The visitors centre was nice but over priced cakes etc

Unfortunately, we were held up slightly in traffic meaning we were a couple of minutes late. This was no problem and one of the instructors actually fully explained everything else we missed before we rejoined the rest of the group. The safety talk and explanation was thorough, well explained and Michael (I think that was his name) was great. I... More

We took our 9 and 7 year old grandchildren to Go Ape Dalby. Their dad had to go too as we felt too scared to be the competent adults. Wow what a day they had! Just watching them was exciting but alarming too. Not that we need to have been frightened as safety is very tightly observed and the equipment... More

Always enjoy a day out here, there's so much to do and and see around the forest too. My only bug bear is the parking charges when you're already spending a lot of money on the forest activities whether it's Go Ape or something else.

Go Ape is great fun, safety is obviously paramount. The instructors are friendly and competent. The course itself is amazing and definatly worth a visit.

5 of us went for my step dads 60th and had a great time. It took us 2 and a half hours to do it all. The tarzon swing near the end as great, and all the zip wires were brilliant although I normally ended up facing backwards and landing in the mud! £33 to go which I think was... More

This is the second Go Ape completed by my wife and elder daughter who is 13. It's wasn't the first time we'd been to this particular Go Ape, though, as both our daughters had been here on the junior version and had a ball completing it. Just as we experienced on that first visit, this one was staffed by friendly,... More
