Fancy a truly memorable day out? With high-ropes, high nets, a Segway experience and mountain bikes you’ll be spoilt for choice at Go Ape Black Park. So where do we begin? Each high-ropes adventure activity will begin with a safety briefing so that you know what to expect, how to navigate your clips/hooks and what to do in an emergency. You'll get a chance to run through a safety practice on a smaller-scale zip line and once you're comfortable you may begin your quest!
Go Ape is the perfect environment for children to explore, push themselves and conquer their fears. It's just as much of an adventure for adults too! Curious to find out more about this brilliant family activity? Read on for our ultimate guide to Go Ape Black Park...
