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.

Had meg as our instructor for the Segways! She was so much fun and really made the experience even more enjoyable. Done the Segways before but this was by far the best one! Would highly recommend and will be coming back! :)

I visited Go Ape in April, with a friend who has some experience in climbing, I have none but thought I'd give it a go and I'm glad that I did. The instructors were there to guide you and give you words of encouragement should...More

We went to Go Ape as a large stag party with some men experienced climbers and others who have done very little outdoor activities. The safety demonstrations were clear and not condescending, and the staff were very friendly. What was handy was that at various...More

Not as difficult as you might think. Listen to the staff, remember to stay clipped on and relax and enjoy. We have done Go Ape in a few different locations and this is one of the best. A lovely setting and friendly staff.

This Go-Ape might not be the biggest but it sure makes up for it in fun and location! A really well run experience with friendly staff and amazing route through the steep forest environment.
