The region’s first Go Ape at Normanby Hall Country Park is on track to open in time for the Easter holidays in 2018 – with many of the obstacles already visible in the trees.
Go Ape at Normanby Hall will have a Tree Top Adventure and three loop Tree Top Junior. Activities include an Amazon Bridge, Grandpa’s crossing, Tibetan bridge and a large Tarzan Swing to test your nerves at the last crossing. Not forgetting five zip lines on the Tree Top Adventure!
Those taking on the Tree Top Adventure course will have the choice of 29 crossings and will brave the highest point of 7.22 metres. For the younger adventurers they will have the choice of 17 crossings on the Tree Top Junior course and will go up to 5.25 metres (highest point).
The nearest Go Ape to North Lincolnshire is in Sherwood Forest, Nottingham.
Go Ape will complement what is already at Normanby Hall Country Park and will attract thousands of people across the region.
Normanby Hall is a beautiful 300 acre Country Park offering the perfect backdrop to the tree top adventure. With impressive award-winning gardens, wildlife, a full schedule of events, walks and trails through the woodland, and a gift shop and café there is plenty to keep you entertained all year round.
During the summer months (April to September) the Hall and Farming Museum are open from 1pm to 5pm daily. The children’s Splashpad also operates daily throughout the summer months. Go Ape is located within the beautiful Beech Wood at Normanby Hall adjacent to the Deer Park nestled towards at the end of the woodland at Normanby Hall.
Normanby Hall Country Park has a 15 pitch caravan and campsite that is great for visitors who want to extend their stay, particularly for visitors who are coming from outside of North Lincolnshire and want to make the most of their visit to the park.
Go Ape is a multi-award winning provider of high rope adventures in the UK. They have established 30 sites in the UK and 17 in the USA, and celebrated their sixth millionth visitor in the UK in 2016. They are solely responsible for installing and operating the course and for all associated costs with the project – including installation, management and maintenance of the facilities.
Cllr Carl Sherwood, cabinet member for Community Wellbeing, said:
“It is brilliant to see progress being made on Go Ape at Normanby Hall Country Park. Go Ape is a top tourist attraction that will attract thousands of visitors to North Lincolnshire. It is a major investment that will help put North Lincolnshire on the map as a place to visit.
“Normanby Hall is set in beautiful surroundings and provides the perfect location for the tree top adventure courses. It is the perfect addition to what is already on offer at Normanby Hall Country Park. It will be a fantastic day out for all the family.”
