Go Ape! Aberfoyle, Queen Elizabeth Forest Park, Aberfoyle, Stirling, FK8 3SY

Go Ape! Aberfoyle

Go Ape is a tree top adventure based in the heart of Queen Elizabeth Forest, Aberfoyle. We take one lush, green forest and a healthy dollop of breathtaking scenery; blend with a smattering of tree-top high wires, tricky crossings and wind-in-your-face zip wires; finished off with a liberal dose of people in search of their inner Tarzan.

The result is spectacular. The Go Ape experience gets the adrenalin pumping, gets people out of their comfort zones and above all (no pun intended), it’s just great fun. We hope to see you swinging through the trees soon!

Min Age: 10 years. Min height: 1.40m/4ft 7. Max weight 130kg/20.5 stones Baboons (under 18s) must be supervised by a participating adult. Gorillas (18 yrs+) £30.00 Baboons (10-17 yrs) £20.00 Booking essential. Take a look and book at
