About us

Go Ape! The UK’s No.1 Tree Top Adventure
Enjoy some tree-time at Dalby in the heart of the Great Yorkshire Forest.


We think everyone has the Go Ape spirit just waiting to be unleashed, discover yours swinging through the tree tops whilst enjoying the beautiful views over the Vale of Pickering or explore from the forest floor with our epic Forest Segway experience!

On our classic and original Go Ape experience, after a safety brief you are free to tackle 37 crossings of tunnels, high ropes and bridges across 6 sections, with a wind-in-your-face 250 metre finale zip wire!
For a more down to earth experience, why not get off the beaten track on one of our rugged Forest Segway’s and enjoy the many routes around the forest.

There¹s 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, we make our courses as fun and as accessible as possible.
