About

There’s no greater rush than the great outdoors, so whether your tribe is a stag do, birthday party, corporate event or simply a day out with the kids, Go Ape have courses as fun and as accessible as possible.

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 breath-taking scenery up in the trees. 


Treetop Challenge

Enjoy one of the best days out in Kent with breath-taking views of the beautiful area surrounding Leeds Castle, and obstacles that will get the hairs on the back of neck bristling. With zip wires and high ropes 12 metres above the forest floor and 250 metres in length, experience an adventure experience never to be forgotten.

Can I do the Treetop Challenge?
Minimum Height – 1.4 m (4ft7") 
Minimum Age - 10 years (supervision ratios apply)
Maximum Weight - 20.5 stones (130kg)

Treetop  Adventure

Leeds Castle is also home to Treetop Adventure for Junior Tarzans. Up to an hour of exploring for all to enjoy, tackle the treetops and clamber through the high rope crossings in the parklands of Leeds Castle.

There’s no minimum age limit so gather the family or groups of friends for an unquestionably unique day out, which will keep you all entertained. Steady your footing on the challenge of the Stepping Stones and the Log Bridge.

Can I do the Treetop Adventure?
Minimum Height – 1m (3ft3")
Maximum weight - 20.5 stones (130kg)

Treetop Adventure Plus

If you have a nimble child, keen to find their adventurous feet on the high ropes or you're an adult tentatively exploring your tree legs, the Treetop Adventure Plus experience is for you.

You'll tackle the original Treetop Adventure course to build your confidence before heading up a level to the Adventure Plus loop. Once there, you'll reach the high ropes course via a fisherman’s trap. The longest crossing, the Chamonix, is a whopping 16m long, and after making it across the course, intrepid adventurers can fly back down to earth in style on a 75-metre long zipwire.

Can I do the Treetop Adventure Plus?
Minimum Height – 1.2m (3ft11")
Minimum Age - 6 years
Maximum weight - 20.5 stones (130kg)
