- High Ropes Courses
Suitable for ages: Older Children (9-12) and Teenagers (13-18)
Venue type: Outdoor
Based just north of Brum, Go Ape Cannock features all 3 of Go Ape's award-winning adventures. It also has the longest combined length of any Go Ape site, racking up nearly 1,500 metres of tree-to-tree crossings. If you were looking for a challenge of nerve and strength, look no further!
Climb up to the tippy tops of the trees - well, 14m up at least - and clamber around rope ladders, Tarzan swings and zip wires. The biggest obstacle comes on site 3 in the form of the thrilling ‘Ropes Passage’, but you’ll be rewarded for your courage with a trip down the final and fastest zip wire soon afterwards. Miniature monkeys (1m and over) can even join in on the fun on the Tree Top Junior experience.
The course 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 by Forest Segway or enjoy a spot of mountain biking. The local flora and fauna are also well worth a look, even if you’re just speeding past.

Swinging into action

This was so much fun for the whole group. We tackled every challenge together and loved the sense of adventure!

Even if you don’t claim to be scared of heights, don’t expect this to be just a walk in the park! There’s lots of variety, and I’d recommend looking at upcoming obstacles, as there’s often a choice of two slightly different routes. We learnt the hard way that some are definitely easier than others! The zip wires are the highlight throughout, but there’s a lot of hard (but fun) work in between. On your final course, make sure you choose the hard route so you don’t miss the Tarzan Swing – trust me, it’s the best bit!
Terrifyingly good fun

Massively pushed me out of my comfort zone but so satisfying! Zip wires are great fun - the rope courses are amazing, each one different - definitely an achievement to complete it!
Freaky but fun.

I don't think I realised quite how scary it would initially be. Feels higher than it looks when you're up there but once you're used to it it's loads of fun - especially the zip wires. Depending on how confident you feel try either the difficult or easy routes. Even if you're a bit freaked out have a go at the Tarzan Swing. It's great.
