Overview

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.

I went with my girlfriend and her dad, I had hear good review but I expected it to be more for teenagers however it was good for all ages over 10 (their restriction). It was challenging and great fun. At £33 it might initially seem...More

One of the best and fun things I've ever done! Definitely worth the cost! Very physically challenging so nothing for the none exercising person. I would recommend any adventure interested person to do this! You really feel like a child again in a good way!...More

Booked Segway online. Site was really easy. Managed to be only one there for that session so was even more fun. Highly recommend. Could easily spend a whole day there doing other stuff & exploring.

We were hesitant to book at first anticipating it might be a bit childish. However after taking a hike in Whinlatter and watching Go Ape participants, we decided to book. It did not disappoint!! Lots of challenging fun and adventure :)

Thanks for getting in touch and for thinking of us Mike. Our adventures at Go Ape Whinlatter are for those aged 10 years and over. 10-15 year olds do require a participating adult with them at all times. The cost for our 2-3... More
