Go Ape…after dark!

This autumn, thrill seekers are being invited to run, leap and zip their way through a series of new night-time adventures, coming exclusively to Go Ape!

Those looking for an extra-ordinary, after-hours experience should look no further than the limited-edition Go Ape Sundown Sessions, where you can enjoy the high ropes of Go Ape beneath a sunset or starry sky.

Across the UK, over twenty Go Ape sites, including Coventry will offer spectacular nightfall editions of your favourite activities on select dates from September to November. They are:

  • Sundown Zips - Set against stunning backdrops of mountains and moorland, forests and valleys, you'll fly over trees and waterfalls for a once-in-a-lifetime experience that dials the thrill factor to the max. With seriously high-level tree-top crossings and incredible zip wire flights, this sundown adventure is sure to get your pulse racing!
  • Sundown Adventure - clamber up into the treetops and gaze at breath-taking nocturnal birds-eye views across forests, mountains and moors. Then, when you reach the zip wire, experience a spine-tingling thrill as you soar through the crisp autumn evening. Become a nimble creature of the night and strike a pose against a sunset or beneath a starry sky. 
  • Sundown Axe Throwing – Our newest Go Ape activity offers a completely new forest experience and in the dark it is even more fun! Starting at £15 and available at just Matfen (Newcastle) and Coventry (Coombe Abbey) locations, book early to avoid disappointment!

This family friendly experience (individual activity restrictions apply) is ideal for those looking to inject some serious adventure into the new season.

Swap your pjs for a harness; trade TV for watching the sun set against a stunning forest backdrop; or exchange dinner parties for swinging through the treetop parties, with an extraordinary evening at Go Ape.

Rob Medlicott, site manager at Go Ape Battersea, explains: “The new Sundown Sessions offer something completely different for people looking to switch up their Autumnal evenings with an unforgettable adventure that’ll stay with them long after the experience ends. If you’ve had a bad day, this is guaranteed to make you feel 50 feet tall! Go Ape is challenging at the best of times, and extra challenging in the dark, but when you complete it the feeling is immense.”

With only a limited number of sessions available, intrepid adventurers are being urged to book ahead and secure a space. Head to for more information, prices and dates available.
