    Join PYP for a fun filled Saturday where we will take to the trees and complete the region’s high ropes course at a discounted price. This is so much more than just zip lines; it’s a 2-3-hour aerial journey through the forest canopy. Go Ape high-ropes course includes suspended obstacles, swings and breathtaking zip lines. Engage every sense in a fully immersive and visually stunning forest setting.

    We have a group for 15 individuals at 11:00 a.m. Every guest may plan to spend 2-3 hours tackling the Go Ape adventure! Reservations are due by Friday, August 2nd.

    We look forward to seeing you there!

    Please be mindful of your registration and our wait list. If for any reason you are no longer able to attend, please email me outreach@pyp.org with  your cancellation in order to free space for interested attendees and to provide the most accurate count for the venue. There are no refunds in the event of a cancellation.

    Important information:

    WAIVERS :All guests MUST sign a waiver before their adventure. Please follow the link(s) above to complete your electronic waiver. https://go.theflybook.com/FlybookWaivers/ps4x25ok/1059813/0


    • Make sure to arrive at Go Ape at least 15 mins early to check-in. Consider extra time for traffic and parking. Your adventure starts at the time you've booked.
    • Height/Weight/Age: The harnesses are one size fits all. To attend you must be 18 years old, at least 4’7”, and less than 285 pounds.


    • Wear comfortable clothing that you don't mind getting a little dirty. You may want to bring a change of clothing for the ride home.
    • Closed toe, closed heel, fully enclosed shoes are required. We recommend ankle-supporting boots, but sneakers are fine too. For your safety, do NOT wear sandals, slip-ons, or any shoe where your foot or toes are partially exposed.
    • Dress for the weather! Layers, hats, gloves, and rain gear are recommended depending on the weather forecast.
    • Gloves are recommended but not required. You can purchase gloves at Go Ape when you arrive.
    • For your safety... long hair should be tied back, waists and thighs should be covered, and body jewelry should be removed or taped over.
    • You may take cameras, phones, and any other device on the course as long as they are secured to you and tucked away to prevent them from getting caught or falling to the ground.
    • We DON'T recommend bringing a bag with you into the trees because they are bulky, but if you must bring a bag, it should fit closely to your body and must not interfere with the harness or related Go Ape gear. A small backpack with tight fitting straps usually works fine. Fanny packs aren't great because they sit right where your harness will be.
    • Please leave extra bags and belongings locked in your car during your adventure. We can hold onto keys for you at the cabin. Go Ape is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

    Parking: Is available at the address above and it is free!
