Go Ape ziplines Freedom Park
Go Ape officially opened in James City County in early April to a sold-out weekend crowd. Go Ape is a private business operation located in the park, offering a high ropes, treetop adventure course.
Adventurists are equipped with harnesses, pulleys and carabineers and are given a 30 minute safety briefing and training before being released into the forest canopy to fly on zip lines, traverse rope ladders, walkways, bridges and tunnels. Instructors are always on hand, regularly patrolling the forests.
The eco-educational outdoor experience typically last 2-3 hours and caters to all skill levels. The course is ideal for family outings, corporate team building and school, scout and church groups.
Go Ape leases space in the park and pays all daily operation costs. James City County benefits from offering another family-friendly outlet that welcomes more visitors to Freedom Park and the County while generating additional revenue.
