One of the best days out in Yorkshire: They don't call this the Great Yorkshire Forest for nothing. With hilltop-to-hilltop zip wires and a plunging valley below, it's easy to see why our adventure at Dalby Forest is so popular. It's simply stunning. Our Tree Top Adventure involves fun and adventure across six sites. Each site features our award winning high ropes, crossings, tunnels, bridges and epic wind-in-your-face zip wires to finish.With hilltop-to-hilltop zip wires and a plunging valley below, it's easy to see why our adventure at Dalby Forest is so popular. It's simply stunning. And the adventure does not need to stop there. You can get off the beaten track and enjoy our latest forest adventure with Go Ape Forest Segway - an epic NEW experience with a down to earth twist. And Dalby Forest is also home to our Tree Top Junior Adventure for Tiny Tarzans. Release your little monkeys onto a Go Ape course designed for them. No one loves adventure more than kids!

Always enjoy a day out here, there's so much to do and and see around the forest too. My only bug bear is the parking charges when you're already spending a lot of money on the forest activities whether it's Go Ape or something else.

Go Ape is great fun, safety is obviously paramount. The instructors are friendly and competent. The course itself is amazing and definatly worth a visit.

5 of us went for my step dads 60th and had a great time. It took us 2 and a half hours to do it all. The tarzon swing near the end as great, and all the zip wires were brilliant although I normally ended up facing backwards and landing in the mud! £33 to go which I think was... More

This is the second Go Ape completed by my wife and elder daughter who is 13. It's wasn't the first time we'd been to this particular Go Ape, though, as both our daughters had been here on the junior version and had a ball completing it. Just as we experienced on that first visit, this one was staffed by friendly,... More

Go Ape is great, it's scary at times especially on the zip wire, but it's really good fun. It's also safe because of the good instruction and training you get at the start for 30 minutes-1hr. There are 6 'stations' if you like which I thought wasn't much but actually it was about right. I would definitely do this again.... More

What an adrenaline rush Go Ape is great. First visit to Go Ape at Dalby and what a great experience. Staff were professional and friendly throughout the afternoon. I was with my 10 year old son and we can't wait to return. Not for those unhappy with heights. You do need to pay £8 to park at Dalby Forest so... More

This place is so good the word fun was created in a place like this! The staff teach you how to stay safe and have fun, all I can say is 6 zip lines in one day, with lots of climbing in between. Don't go if you have a fear of heights!!

My husband and I planned this activity into our 10 year wedding anniversary and had no regrets. We had to pay to get into the car park, which was not perfect, but later found out we could get an annual membership which would be more cost effective. Parking was close to the attraction. The attraction is close to (about 5... More
