Go Ape dials up the thrill with new Treetop Adventure+ course at Moors Valley (July 2019)
Go Ape! in Moors Valley has unveiled an ambitious treetop trail for young thrill-seekers, with the launch of a more challenging high wire adventure designed to make them Feel 50ft Tall.
he new Treetop Adventure+ is an ambitious step up from Go Ape’s popular Adventure course, and is now available for children aged 6+ and over 1.2m tall who are looking to turn things up a notch and experience more speed, more air, more freedom, more height and more thrills.
Daring families will love the new course, built at Go Ape Moors Valley ahead of school summer holidays starting later this month. Set in the heart of the beautiful woodland, kids can opt for more thrills amongst the new Adventure + course – including eight new crossings, with clambering tunnels, daring traverses and wildly wobbly bridges, set 30-ft above ground. The intrepid young adventurers can then join the grown-up course to fly down the 120-metre zip wire as an adrenaline-filled highlight of their adventure.
Chris Swain, site manager at Go Ape Moors Valley attraction, says: “With the new Treetop Adventure+ we’re introducing older children to a more challenging treetop trial with higher platforms and longer zips, to see their confidence reach new heights – all while giving them the ultimate fun-fuelled experience.
“We’ve made some major refurbs to our site recently, including a refresh of our younger children’s Treetop Adventure course and also upgraded the award-winning Treetop Challenge activity for teens and adults, so we can offer even better, more thrilling experiences to different audiences. We’re also soon to launch the most daring challenge ever seen at this Go Ape attraction. Watch this space!”
