Nestled inacres of beautiful woodland and just a stone’s throw from the capital, Trent Park is an ideal location for a fun-filled day out for families or groups of friends.

Go Ape! Trent Park has 40 crossings over five sections, with the highest point a heart pumping 12.4 metres above the ground. Visitors can experience a liberating sense offreedom as they swing on Tarzan swings above the leafy ground, cross woodenwalkways and fly through the forest on zip wires. The course has a brand new five ring challenge in celebration of the 2012 games and will also be home to the second ever skateboard zip wire after the success of the first launchedlast year in Scotland.

Pete Withers, course manager at Trent Park comments, “We are excited to be bringing Go Ape to London and have had a fantastic response from the public and Enfield Council. Go Ape is all about creating adventures and encouraging others to live lifeadventurously so it is great to be launching our new course so close to thecapital and to be celebrating the 2012 games with our new five ring challenge.

“We are also pleased to introduce the skateboard zip to Trent Park, allowing visitors to skate through the trees on a zip wire whilst travelling meters above the ground, which is an exhilarating and breathtaking experience. The Bracknell and Slough courses receive many visitors from residents in the London area, so we are pleased to bring Go Ape even closer to them. ”
