How do you live life adventurously? If navigating your day-to-day isn’t challenging enough, it’s probably time to Go Ape! Go Ape Zipline & Adventure Park is the perfect outdoor escape for those seeking to channel their inner Tarzan.
First opened in 2012, Go Ape is celebrating 10 years at Freedom Park in Williamsburg. Go Ape offers a variety of activities including the Treetop Adventure and Treetop Journey ropes courses with ziplining, outdoor Axe Throwing and the Monkey Drop, a freefall experience from 40 feet in the air.
So, what type of adventurer are you? Everyone has a little bit of adventure in them, you just need to find it and be willing to challenge yourself. If these past few years have taught us anything it’s to expect the unexpected and be prepared to find joy whenever possible!
The instructors at Go Ape are trained to provide guests with the confidence to step outside their comfort zone. For most, that includes participation in the Treetop Adventure, which is a 2-3 hour self-guided tour through the tree canopy at Freedom Park. Engage every one of your senses in a fully immersive and visually stunning forest setting, all while navigating wobbly bridges, tricky crossings and a massive Tarzan swing. Each loop of obstacles ends with an epic zipline, the longest of which is 600 feet!
More of a beginner when it comes to aerial adventure? Check out the Treetop Journey, which is the perfect introductory high-ropes course, focused on getting you off the ground and into the trees. This option features over 20 obstacles and is not quite as high in the air, but still offers exciting ziplines and a unique perspective of the natural environment. A great option for kids and families!
Maybe heights aren’t your thing, or you have some stress you want to relieve. Go Ape has an outdoor Axe Throwing range where you can chuck some hatchets! Compete with your friends and find great satisfaction when sticking your axe in the target. Technique is more important than strength, and once you hit the bullseye you may scream with excitement even more than while riding on a zipline.
Do you crave an adrenaline rush? If you tend to enjoy letting go and putting your trust in gravity, the Monkey Drop is the perfect fix. After connecting to a safety line, you’ll take a leap of faith off a platform from 40 feet above the ground. Enjoy the sensation of feeling your heart in your throat during a quick freefall, before being lowered back down to the forest floor.
Regardless of which options you choose, with a visit to Go Ape you’re guaranteed to laugh, smile, and create some amazing memories!
