Go Ape's first London venue is in Battersea Park and makes a thrilling high wire adventure for kids and a great party venue.

The highest obstacle crossings are almost double the height of most Go Ape courses in the UK, so it's not for the faint hearted! The wobbly sections are particularly challenging, but make a thrilling test of nerves. Highly recommended, and makes an excellent party venue. 

The main course is suitable for ages of 10+ (accompanied by an adult) and there is also a junior course for younger kids of at least 1 metre in height (again, provided they are accompanied.) 

a&u review - Editor Emily took two intrepid 10 year olds

"It was a cold grey January day and I was being strapped into a harness at a safety briefing for a tree top adventure experience. I hate heights.

The disclaimer form that you have to fill in leaves you in no doubt that this is a dangerous activity and that injuries are not uncommon but that just adds to the excitement for Jimmy and Ned (aged 10). Our briefing is thorough but fun, followed by a quick run through of how you clip on to the individual sections. 

Then we are off. There are three different courses, in increasing levels of difficulty. Unfortunately for me because the boys are under 13 I am the group leader and so anything they do, I have to do too. We get clipped on to the first course. Unlike in some of the early Go Apes an instructor clips you on at the start of the course and that line remains attached throughout. You add a second security clip for each walkway but at no time can you become unattached. So, repeat to self, you cannot fall off.

The feeling of being suspended on a wobbly wooden bridge nearly fifty foot above ground is properly scary. There are obstacles to climb through, different options you can take but I was definitely the drippy grown up holding back the boys. And some of the crossings are long, almost twice as long as other Go Ape courses. I found the zip wiring at the end marginally less terrifying.

It is a huge sense of achievement when you come down. We had very good pizza in the cafe and then a, suitably gentle, round of mini golf in the crazy golf course which is just next door.

A perfect active morning. Highly recommended."
