This is one of the finest way to spend a very eventful day with friends. Really enjoyed it! We went in a group and 7 of us decided to take the Adventure course which takes about 3 hrs to complete. The cost was $58 per person. It started with a brief tutorial and introduction to the whole activity and safety instructions were repeated quite a few times. Once done, we were on our own on the 5 stage course. The stages consisted of varying degree of difficulty of activities including Tarzan, Zip line across the pond and several walking across planks type thingies. Some of them were scary - especially the last Tarzan swing. Its really something to be experienced and cannot be expressed in words. I overcame my fear of heights and its absolutely safe to do all of them. There is no chance of getting hurt or injuring yourself as long as you follow the instructions of staying attached at all times. I really enjoyed the several ziplines across the pond - 5 in total. Pace yourself well, stay hydrated and enjoy! We had great fun and will definitely be back if I get a chance. At the end of 3 hrs, we got certificate of completion which was an icing on the cake! Its a one of a kind experience and I encourage all adventure loving people out there to give it a go! Enjoy!!
What a day! A tad scary, a lot of fun and a whole lot of satisfaction as we went through the courses. To tell the truth I was there only to check zip-lining off of my bucket list. However, it turns out that the zip lines were more or less a reward for completing each course. Surprise. Next time Ill read the information on the webpage. lol I cant say enough about our guide, Kevin, who was super friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and very encouraging. I guess he thought a 77 year old needed all the encouraging she could get and he was right. It worked Kevin. Wish I could say that we finished all of the obstacle courses but that didnt happen - I completed 3 of the 5 and my step-daughter completed 4 of the 5. But we both went away feeling great about what we had accomplished.
More exciting than I anticipated. The way the harnass system is set up does a good job of allowing you to easily pull yourself across obstacles or give yourself a real challenge by pretending the harnass isnt there. Good length. My brother and I are both in our mid 20s and in decent shape. Took us 1.5hr to do the harder path at a moderate pace. Its annoying that you have to pay the Lums Pond Park entrance fee to get to Go Ape. If I did it again Id plan a full day with hiking/ cook out in the park to get my moneys worth. I would have some concern about the lack of supervision if I was there with children. They do a pretty comprehensive safety brief and training, but with no one actually in the trees its not hard to imagine someone not tethering in correctly.
My bf and I came her for a friends birthday along with her bf. Neither of us had been zip lining before and didnt know what to expect. I really only anticipated climbing up a tree and zip lining down... But it was a lot more than just that! Ill be honest though, I was a little surprised how much free range we had after the initial practice. Once you learn how the harness works and what to do, youre pretty much on your own up there! We climbed along the tree tops where there was obstacles, swings, etc. but we were all extremely entertained and had SO much fun! Plus, we counted it as our workout for the weekend ;-) haha. Cant wait to go again!
I do not recommend this. There are not enough safety checks. I took this adventure and was not hooked up properly during a switch over! The people behind me noticed thank goodness. I was exhausted towards the end and could have been the 2nd fatality! There should be someone checking hookups at every changeover! Im 70 and I thought in good physical shape; but this challenge is for younger folks! My grandchildren loved it.
We just went there and had a really great experience. The staff were so friendly patient and helpful namely sky pheobe and gabby! They even handled my four year old sons freak attack with aplomb! We had a blast and would highly recommend it for all ages. (Our group ranged from 4 - 39). Even the adults enjoyed the younger course it was plenty challenging! Thanks!
Course is very fun with multiple zip lines. Can get through it in as little as an hour or take your time and do it in 3 hours. This does not require someone in perfect shape, but you need to be able to climb a ladder/rope net at least. The staff is excellent and ensures you are safely having fun. Very beautiful views along the way.
Great staff that ensure that you have a great time. Our first trip here got cancelled due to lightning in the area in the middle of the course, but they gave us credit for all the tickets we bought to come back and properly finish which was surprising, but really appreciated. Great place for some fresh air and challenging fun
Today I did another tree top adventure at Go Ape in Bear Delaware! Always a blast and everyone who works there is always smiling and has such a great attitude. I always have so much fun and cant wait to share my expierence with my friends and family. If you havent tried this yet, what are you waiting for?!
We had a blast! Beautiful day of climbing up trees, clambering across lines high above the ground, Tarzan Swings, and a bunch of zip lines. The staff were great too, seemed to love their jobs and be having a lot of fun. Took us about two and a half hours to do it all. We will probably go back!
Staff were energetic and gave great instructions on how to navigate the course safely. My husband, my 11 yr old daughter and I had a great afternoon. The park is beautiful...the course is exciting without being overly challenging. Perfect Saturday afternoon activity.
Great experience, I have done this course 2 times and it is a ton of fun! The staff are very friendly and helpful as well. The only reason it is 4 stars versus 5 is the price, its about $50 which seems a bit expensive. Other than that no complaints!
A great time. Weve been here three times now and we had an excellent time every time. I could see getting stuck behind some slower groups and that possibly wrecking youre fun, but otherwise its worth the fifty bucks.
So much fun. No one thought I could do it. And I did... Every obstacle. Cant wait to do it again. Great views. Great way to face fears. Awesome staff.

it is very fun, and you can pick the difficulty on the tree top by going different route! perfect for a group of people with different strength.
What an awesome experience! Felt very secure the whole time. Equipment was top notch. Staff was incredible. Cant wait to go back.
Fun time with friends and family. Staff was very professional and organized, course and equipment was well-maintained.
The course its self was great as well as the employees but I would suggest looking for a discount before going.
Just left, little sore but had great time. Instructors we very supportive and informative. Cant wait to go back
