Here at Cannock Chase in Staffordshire, you're in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Our Tree Top Adventure takes Cannock Chase's breathtaking scenery, a smattering of tree-top high wires, crossings and wind-in-your-face zip wires. It's a proven recipe that never fails. Trust us, it's one of the best days out near Birmingham 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. Cannock Chase is also home to our Tree Top Junior Adventure for Mini Tarzans. Release your little monkeys onto a Go Ape course designed for them. No one loves adventure more than kids!

We were a party of 10. 2 adults (myself and brother in law) and 4 children (8-11 year olds) went up into the trees. I thought I might get vertigo as it seems to crop up more often the older I get. It was absolutely fine though. Our instructor was superb, lovely yet firm with the kids. The staff on... More

Came here with my dad for our first Segway experience. We were very lucky to have just the two of us on the tour (Saturday morning) and our guide Vicky was very attentive and fun to be with. We spent sometime in the training area and then went round cannock chase, I think the whole experience was about an hour... More

Brilliant day out. Very well presented site at the beautiful Birches Valley site, on-site toilets, picnic benches, ample car parking, good cafe', adventure playground and numerous walks in great setting. Very welcoming staff, thorough safety briefing (full course or junior), very reassuring even if you have fear of heights. Junior course - great for younger kids or those under 1.4m,... More

What an awesome experience. I personally am not an adrenaline junkie and thought I would hate this, but it was surprisingly fun. There was an excellent introduction and safety demonstration conducted by a lady called Lisa where we were 'shown the ropes' (and harnesses), after which we were unleashed on the course. Despite it being rather nice weather and a... More

I'm always on the look out for something out of the ordinary to try and for me, Go Ape ticked every box - entertaining, challenging and rememberable! My friend and I booked in advance online via their website for a Saturday morning group at 10:45. After checking in and signing a disclaimer form we headed over for our harness fitting... More

Would recommend booking on the earliest slot available on the day you want to visit as there are normally less people on the course. Starts with a small tutorial by an instructor, very easy to learn what you need to do to get around the course. After the first few minutes on the course you are left alone to complete... More
