The new Salcey Forest Go Ape location will have two exciting high ropes courses for kids.

Set to open in March this year, Go Ape’s Salcey Forest location will feature an entry level Treetop Adventure which is the ideal introduction for children. After building their confidence on the low loop, pupils are then encouraged to head high in the canopy, taking on tree-to-tree crossings and obstacles, finishing with the super-fast and exciting zip wire.

For older students, the Treetop Adventure Plus is all about embracing more speed, more air, more freedom and more height with what is described as an exhilarating finale for the descent back to the ground. 

Designed for adventurers standing tall at 1.2 metres, it is the first standalone Treetop Adventure Plus course, completely separate from Go Ape’s Treetop Adventure course.

Go Ape’s managing director, Nick Hall, said: “Go Ape is incredibly excited to be bringing its tree top high ropes activities to the beautiful and historic Salcey Forest. 

“Our mission has always been to inspire everyone to live life adventurously, and with this newest location, we will continue to deliver amazing experiences to families and children from Northampton and the surrounding areas, as well as schools and groups looking for a challenge in the great outdoors.”
