Go Ape is urging Scots to escape from winter hibernation and hang out in the trees with their tribe this half term!
The monkeys will be able to throw off their school bags and have a fun experience in the great outdoors, using up all their energy and coming home with mud under their finger nails and woodchip in their under pants, showing the signs of a good adventure.
Recent research by Go Ape found that kids spend more time in front of a screen than playing outdoors and are missing out on traditional activities like climbing trees, building a den and flying kites. A half term trip to the trees offers the chance to get back to nature, fly down zip wires, leap off Tarzan swings and navigate obstacles, rope crossings and Tibetan bridges, high above the forest floor.
There are three unique Go Ape courses located across Scotland, each featuring a Tree Top Adventure, set amidst some of the country’s most breath-taking scenery.
• Go Ape Aberfoyle in Stirlingshire, located in Queen Elizabeth Forest Park, is zip wire heaven and home to two of Britain’s longest zip wires, stretching over 400m long, flying people 150 feet above the ground and over a 90 foot waterfall.
• Go Ape Peebles is built on the hillside within the striking Glentress Forest and takes advantage of the valley for some jaw-dropping exposure and challenges the laws of gravity with the highest zip wire in the country, located above a magnificent reservoir. With crossings over 3,000m long, it’s an epic adventure.
• Go Ape Crathes Castle in Aberdeenshire is located in the landmark grounds of the castle and features the bold skateboard zip wire. With turrets and towers, winding staircases and ancient sculpted yew trees; historic Crathes Castle’s 595 acre estate offers a fantastic day out.
Go Ape prices range from £33 for a gorilla (aged 16 and over) to £25 for a baboon (aged 10 to 15).
