Take students and scouts on an unforgettable outdoor challenge. Go Ape is an adventure in the trees, where visitors ascend higher and higher into the forest as they navigate rope obstacles, bridges, swings, and zip lines.

One adult's supervision is required for every two 10-15 year olds. Adults may not supervise from the ground.
