Planning the ultimate adventure for thrill seekers? Based just north of Birmingham Go Ape Cannock is home to award-winning Go Ape adventures for all the family (yes, small kids too!).
It has the longest combined length of any Go Ape site, racking up nearly 1,500 metres of tree-to-tree crossings - zipline fanatics will love this! Choose from a broad range of epic activities to enrich your Go Ape experience.
Hire a bike and embark on the Mountain Bike Trails, go Axe Throwing or explore the ancient forest in the forest canopy in the forest ziplines. Add a wide range of thrills to your family day out! There's so much more to Go Ape than their popular high-ropes adventures, so let's get into it!
Fun Activities for Thrill Seekers
Each individual activity lasts between 2-3 hours whether you're planning to swoop through the forest floors or climb to the treetops! You can expect a safety briefing before each activity to ensure you feel confident and know what you are doing before beginning your Go Ape Adventure!
If you are looking for a challenge of nerve and strength, look no further! Fancy an adventure the whole family can enjoy together? Buddy up with your tiny explorers (min 1m tall) to take on the Treetop Adventure and show off your tree-climbing skills. Treetop Adventure Plus is the next level up for explorers (over 1.2m) looking for even more thrills. Still, looking for more? Climb up to the tippy tops of the trees - well, 14m up at least - on Treetop Challenge and clamber around rope ladders, Tarzan swings, wobbly bridges, intricate crossings, and zip wires (min height 1.4m). It's treetop fun all around, am I right?
Go Ape Cannock is tucked away in the Staffordshire countryside which - fun fact - is the smallest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in mainland Britain! Find your way around the woods on a Go Ape Forest Segway adventure or enjoy a spot of mountain biking on the peddle and play trails. The local flora and fauna are also well worth a look, even if you’re just speeding past. Forest Segways are a perfect two-wheeled adventure!
Whizz through Cannock Chase Forest in the Go Ape zip line experience! Give a wave to your siblings as you pass them on the high-wire adventure. Not only is this great fun but you'll get to see the breathtaking views of Cannock Chase. Cool off and lower your adrenaline as you finish your day of adventure on one of the walking trails. Don't forget to breathe and absorb every inch of Cannock forest.

Parking For Visitors
There is a car park at Go Ape Cannock Chase but you will have to pay a fee. The car parking fees are a site entry fee and are applied to each vehicle by the Forestry Commission to pay for services and facilities that are not supplied by on-site businesses such as Go Ape. This can include the upkeep of forest trails, car park maintenance and toilets.
