We have a couple of GO APE structures in Alexandra Park, situated behind the Lakeside Cafe.

We sent along our correspondent Theo, soon after the junior course opened.

Here is his report -

If you haven’t heard of Go Ape before, it is an outdoor adventure company which runs Tree Top Adventures, Forest Segways, and Zip Trekking Adventures. As some may know, Go Ape has recently opened a junior tree-top course. It is situated above the “Football Field” between the old western deer enclosure and the Boating Lake.

I tried it recently and had a brilliant time. The atmosphere is great, and the course is exhilarating - especially the zip-wire in the last part. There are bridges of varying difficulty, but they are more ‘comfortably challenging’ than impossible. One of the best things about Go Ape is its accessibility: people of all ages can go on together. It is certainly worth trying even if it doesn’t sound like your thing.
