There are around 30 Go Ape centres across the United Kingdom, and Cannock Chase is one of the very best. The Tree Top Adventure takes around two to three hours and is guaranteed to unleash your inner Tarzan! After a safety briefing you're free to enjoy the many zip wires, tree top crossings and Tarzan Swings on offer.
As well as being a great family day out, Go Ape also offers corporate and staff days on weekdays and many of the local hotels in Staffordshire offer group discounts, making Go Ape, Cannock an affordable alternative to many of the standard staff away days. Cannock and nearby Stafford have plenty of accommodation to suit all budgets, and Birmingham, the UK's second largest city, is just a short distance away.
A Top Attraction for Kids of All Ages
The Cannock Chase Go Ape features Tree Top Adventure, Tree Top Junior (for smaller children) and the new Forest Segway experience, which offers a new and exciting way to explore this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is a large kids' play area, and mountain bike hire is also available. If tree top adventuring isn't for you, there are plenty of pleasant walks that you can take while the kids have a ball. Go Ape adventures are supervised by trained staff at all times.
