Go Ape! Haldon

GoApe Haldon Blackdown Barn


Go Ape is the UK's No.1 Family Forest Adventure.

Days out at Go Ape are about living life more adventurously, having fun with friends and family and getting in touch with your inner Tarzan (he’s in there, we promise). The classic Go Ape experience. We brief you for safety before you fly down zip-wires, leap off our Tarzan Swings and enjoy our crossings whilst taking in some of Britain’s most breathtaking scenery.

We think everyone has the Go Ape spirit just waiting to be unleashed! There’s no greater rush than the great outdoors, so we make the ultimate day out with the kids. We make our courses as fun and as accessible as possible, and perhaps it’s that sense of shared experience, perhaps it’s getting close to nature, or it might just be that monkeying around in the trees with your tribe brings a smile to your face.
